Lindsay Lohan for rent

For 19 years, oddball Austrian billionaire Richard Lugner has paid for nights with beautiful B-list bombshells.

He pays them about $150,000 and, in exchange, they sign autographs at one of his shopping malls and then accompany him to Austria's premier social event, the Vienna Opera Ball.

The 77-year-old, four-times-divorced father of three gets a kick out of the attention -- and sometimes outrage -- that his buxom rent-a-dates stir up.

Over the years, he has squired Pamela Anderson, Paris Hilton, actresses Sophia Loren, Raquel Welch and Andie MacDowell, and burlesque performer Dita Von Teese.

Lindsay Lohan accepted Lugner's offer after his first choice, pneumatic British reality-TV star Jordan (a k a Katie Price), stole his thunder by announcing her selection to the tabloids before he could.

But Lohan had some issues.

"She wanted to change some of the dates," Lugner told The Post.

Alas, the ultraposh Opera Ball, started in 1936, "can't be moved."

Then Lohan, 23, refused to pick a gown ahead of time and will wait until just before the Feb. 11 ball to pick "a European gown."

Lugner won't comment on whether he's picking up the tab for that.
