Kim Kardashian has a rough day at Vienna Opera Ball

Kim Kardashian had an eventful night at the opera this week, She was paid $500,000 to attend the Vienna Opera Ball on Thursday, Feb. 27. She later suspected the man who paid her to attend the event also had a man in blackface act like Kanye West, Kardashian’s husband, as he sang an opera overture. The blackface man later was revealed to be British comedian Chris Stephan.

The Vienna Opera Ball each year features celebrities paid to attend by opera benefactors. In this case, Richard Lugner, 81, hired Kardashian to sit in his box. Kardashian called the guy a creepy old man, however, saying he kept making lewd comments and tried to corner her alone. She accused him of trying to grope her while he called her annoying.

“Kim is annoying me because she’s not sticking to the programme,” Lugner said.

He continued: “The guest should be with me and not anywhere else that is not agreed upon.”

Later in the evening, a guy in blackface approached her and made some rude comments while asking her to dance. He also made a reference to one of West’s songs, “N…as in Paris,” by saying he wanted to dance to “N….as in Vienna.”

Lugner has a thing with these celebrity dates. Previously, he hosted Carmen Electra, Paris Hilton, and Pamela Anderson in pay to play at the opera events.
