Unfortunately, the lavish charity affair to benefit those living with AIDS and HIV left a bad taste in 37-year-old Kardashian’s mouth several years before, in 2014, when a man in blackface reportedly harassed her by pretending he was Kanye West and insisting she dance with him.
Kardashian, who was paid $500,000 to attend the ball with construction magnate Richard Lugner, was forced to flee the venue with her mom, Kris, in tow, and the entire ugly incident was featured on Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
Sadly, Jenner’s attendance at this year’s Opera Ball isn’t just a slap in the face for Kardashian.
The gala in Europe falls on the exact same day as her 34-year-old son Brody’s wedding with Kaitlynn Carter halfway around the world at Nihi on Sumba.
A rep for Jenner confirmed that she would skip the couple’s ceremony due to “prior work commitments.”
