Austrian billionaire Richard Lugner just added Lindsay Lohan to his list of dating conquests, for the small fee of $150,000.
For the past 19 years, the four-times divorced father of three has indulged in a celebrity date every single year. His purpose? To accessorize with gorgeous arm candy at Austria’s premier social event, the Vienna Opera ball. In the past, his escorts have included the likes of Paris Hilton, Pamela Anderson, Sophia Loren, Raquel Welch, Faye Dunaway, Grace Jones, Andie MacDowell, and Dita Von Teese. He is absolutely infamous in Austria for creating such a media circus at the ball with his paid escorts, especially when his guest is willing to do the waltz with him on the crowded dance floor. “Sometimes with my guest, dancing is impossible, because so many journalists want to talk to them. I recall, though, that Faye Dunaway and Grace Jones were great dancers. I was able to dance with them,” he gushed.
He set his sights on Lohan after his first choice, UK’s Katie Price announced that she was already going to the ball. His other finalist was Lady Gaga. Mr. Lugner said Ms. Lohan had made some requests: “She wanted to change some of the dates.” However, the exclusive Opera Ball which started in 1936, “can’t be moved.” In addition: “Her managers have told us to make sure that she doesn’t drink during her trip. We have made arrangements to pull all the liquor from the mini-bar in the hotel room where she’ll stay, and told room service they are not to deliver drinks to her.”
