Kim Kardashian set to be the Lugner Opera Ball guest

Kim Kardashian set to be the Lugner Opera Ball guest

Kim Kardashian is to accompany ageing playboy Richard Lugner to the world famous Vienna Opera Ball in February, Lugner claims.

Publicity mad Austrian tycoon Lugner has already accompanied a string of high profile leading ladies to the event, including The Duchess of York, Grace Jones, Carmen Electra, Geri Halliwell, Pamela Anderson and Paris Hilton.

He announced this morning at a press conference at Lugner City, his shopping centre in the Austrian capital, that he has completed negotiations with Kardashian to be his star guest at the ball.

Allegedly Kardashian is demanding 250,000 Euro from the building tycoon for her appearance.

Lugner who always spends a lot of money for his guests, was even once conned out of 150,000 GBP by fraudster claiming to be Halle Berry's manager, a court has heard.

He had been negotiating with a fraudster to bring the Hollywood actress to the city as his guest at the event. Shadi Bahceli admitted to a court in Emmendingen, Germany, that she'd pretended to be Berry's local agent working for the star's office in New York.

After pocketing the fee, she disappeared when Berry failed to show up at the event in 2011.

Lugner had to quickly book former Italian prime minister Berlusconi's bunga-bunga party girl Karima El Mahroug, otherwise known as Ruby Heartstealer.
