Lohan backs out of Viennese ball

The Mean Girls actress was chosen to attend the annual gala with quirky entrepreneur Richard Lugner, who always has a sexy celebrity on his arm at the glitzy event.

Lohan was set to follow in the footsteps of Paris Hilton, Geri Halliwell, Pamela Anderson, Andie MacDowell, Sophia Loren and Dita Von Teese, who have all stepped out as Lugner’s date in previous years.

But the star has seemingly shunned the 77 year old’s invite on the day of the party, which is slated to take place on Thursday (11Feb10), according to the Austria Press Agency.

It is not known why Lohan will not be attending the event.
