Austrian businessman Richard Lunger paid Kim $500,000 to accompany him to the annual Vienna Opera Ball — but no amount of money could have kept her there after this shocking incident! Kim reportedly stormed out of the ball after she was allegedly harassed by a man who was in blackface!
Kim Kardashian got some very unwanted attention at the 2014 Vienna Opera Ball on Feb. 27, which she attended as the celebrity escort of millionaire mall developer Richard Lugner. The 34-year-old Keeping Up with the Kardashians star’s evening was ruined when a man, allegedly in blackface, came up to her and pretended to be her fiance Kanye West. How horrifying!
Kim Kardashian’s Vienna Insult — Star Leaves Ball After ‘Blackface’ Incident
Poor Kim! She’s probably still shaken up over what happened at the ball. She was reportedly posing for pictures with Richard when a white man in blackface approached her and said he was Kanye, according to a new report from TMZ.
Kim was shocked and she quickly walked away from the man, but unfortunately she was obligated to stay at the event for another hour and half.
But that’s not all — a little while later, another man came up to Kim and asked her to dance. She declined, saying she wasn’t a good dancer, and he reportedly said he would dance with her if the band played “N****rs in Vienna,” according to TMZ. Wow! How did these creeps make the guest list?
Kim Kardashian’s Vienna Ball Date: She’s ‘Annoying Me’
It doesn’t sound like Kim’s date defended her honor either. Richard complained about Kim to the press hours after she arrived with mom Kris Jenner and baby North West, according to a new report from Radar Online. He even accused Kim of standing him up to film scenes of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, which she was shooting at the event.
“Kim is annoying me,” Richard told reporters. “Because she’s not sticking to the program.”
Ouch! Kim must be so glad that date is over! What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Was Kim right to leave the ball after the alleged blackface incident? Let us know.
