Every year, Austrian tycoon Richard Lugner pays a glamorous female to be his date at the Vienna Opera Ball.
But this year he caused a scandal amongst Austria’s high society when he invited one of Silvio Berlusconi’s infamous ‘bunga bunga’ girls.
Lugner’s other celebrity guest Larry Hagman, 79, posed up alongside Moroccan-born belly dancer Karima El-Mahroug, aka ‘Ruby The Heart Stealer’ – potentially unaware of the scandal surrounding the teenager.
Looking glamorous in a gold gown, the 18-year-old was paid €40,000 (£34,000) to attend last night’s festivities by Mr Lugner.
Italian Prime Minister Berlusconi is to stand trial next month on a charge of sex with an underage prostitute and abuse of power after he allegedly sought her release from police custody on a theft charge in May 2010.
