Kim Kardashian 'storms out of Vienna ball' after 500k payday as billionaire's date

Kim Kardashian supposedly left the Vienna Annual Opera Ball in a huff.

The 33-year-old reality star was paid $500,000 to accompany Austrian construction tycoon Richard Lugner to Thursday’s glamorous event.

But according to TMZ things went sour when Kim left the party early.

The website reports she was being continually harassed by a man in blackface who pretended to be her fiancé Kanye West. Apparently the character came up to ask Kim for a dance, and when she declined his request he reportedly retorted with a snarky insult.

“[He said] he would dance with her if the orchestra played N****rs in Vienna,” the outlet writes, noting the statement refers directly to Kanye’s song with Jay-Z, Ni**as in Paris.

It is claimed Kim left the affair with her mother Kris Jenner just after her alleged interaction with the man in blackface.

“Kim is annoying me. Because she’s not sticking to the programme,” he is quoted as telling the press, before referring to the star’s reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

“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.”

Richard takes different celebrity women to the ball each year. Some of his past guests include Pamela Anderson, Carmen Electra, Geri Halliwell, Dita Von Teese, Paris Hilton and Grace Jones.

Kim’s representatives have not yet commented on the alleged upset.
