Austrian businessman Richard Lugner has made a tradition of paying starlets big bucks to accompany him to Vienna’s annual Opera Ball. This year, RadarOnline.com has learned that he paid Kim Kardashian $500,000 to be his date. But he’s not getting his money’s worth! Just hours after Kardashian’s arrival with mom Kris Jenner and baby North West, Lugner spoke out to local media to complain about how Kardashian had stood him up to film scenes for Keeping Up with the Kardashians!
“Kim is annoying me,” Lugner told reporters. “Because she’s not sticking to the program.”
“She’s filming and so she doesn’t want to have me around,” he said.
The 81-year-old angrily insisted, “The guest should be with me and not anywhere else that is not agreed upon.”
And even when it comes to scheduled appearances, Kardashian has made it clear she won’t follow his schedule. Though Lugner had told press he would dance with her at 11:45 p.m. during the ball, Kardashian said in a press conference that she’d have mom Jenner take her place, explaining, “I’d rather watch the dancing.”
Kardashian was set to attend the ball Thursday night, and Lugner revealed he had already taken special measures to make sure he was ready for the spotlight: He told reporters he had gotten fifteen shots of Botox, saying, “What’s good for [Kim] is good for me too.”
Despite the drama, Kardashian is hardly Lugner’s worst date of all time. That honor surely goes to Lindsay Lohan, who didn’t even show up for her scheduled appearance in 2010 after she missed her flight.
