The Keeping up with the Kardashians star swooped into Vienna to attend the Vienna Opera Ball as the date of businessman Richard Lugner, for a hefty fee of $500,000. Kim ticked off Lugner right from the start when she had her KUWTK camera crew in tow and ditched him to do some filming at a nearby restaurant. The whole day was off schedule and he let the media know how unhappy he was. "Kim is annoying me. Because she's not sticking to the programme. She's filming and so she doesn't want to have me around. The guest should be with me and not anywhere else that is not agreed upon."
Then Kim ducked out of her dance duties and made Richard dance with Kris instead! Kim's lame excuse? "I'd rather watch the dancing."

Of course Kim's team had a different story to tell TMZ. Kim cried them a river, saying that she bolted from the ball because she was offended over a white man in black face doing an impersonation of Kanye West and Lugner supposedly got grabby.
TMZ says, "We're told she was taking pics with Lugner when a guy who was working the ball came up to her … IN BLACK FACE acting like he was Kanye. She walked away from the guy, but had to stay another hour and a half. A short time later a guy came up to Kim and asked her to dance. She said she wasn't a good dancer, and then the guy responded, he would dance with her if the orchestra played "N****rs in Vienna."
Kim also claims that Lugner was grabbing her and trying to get her alone and that it was all caught on tape. "Kim is saying there were other problems. She told her people Lugner was aggressive, at times grabbing her and imploring her to lose her security. She said Lugner was trying to be alone with her. We're told a lot of this was caught on tape because Kim was shooting for her reality show."
Kim isn't the first starlet to attend the ball with Lugner for a big paycheck. In the past his dates have been Paris Hilton, Pamela Anderson and Carmen Electra.
