missed her plane to the lavish Opera Ball in Austria on Thursday after spending two hours shopping in an airport. The Mean Girls
actress was to be the star date of millionaire Richard Lugner, who always invites a sexy celebrity to accompany him to the glitzy annual event in Vienna
The 23 year old would have followed in the footsteps of Paris Hilton
, Geri Halliwell
, Pamela Anderson
and Dita Von Teese
, who have all stepped out as Lugner's date in previous years.
However, Lohan was two hours late to board her private plane - after she became distracted by a shopping spree in the Los Angeles airport.
Lugner claims the British Airways staff stalled take-off for Lohan but after finally arriving, she couldn't afford the $22,000 charge for the delay.
The 77-year-old tycoon explains, "She wanted to pay but didn't have that much available so got off the plane."
