Kim Kardashian was left embarrassed when less than 50 people turned up to see her at the nightclub Hush in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Kim Kardashian, 31, had jetted into New York to Charlotte for the event, which is also where the Democratic National Convention was being held.
While that was being attributed to the almost no show, the event was dubbed as the convention after party, so the club’s bosses will have expected a solid turn out.
The reality star posted a picture of a half glass of champagne on her Twitter page, writing: “It’s that kinda night!”
Kim Kardashian finally left after two hours, with one source claiming she was furious after the house band stated that “this place is empty”.

Se had been in New York earlier promoting her True Reflection perfume at the Lord & Taylor store as well as attending Fashion’s Night Out.
Kim Kardashian looked rather striking despite the plain black high-neck dress thanks to the efforts of her giant metal belt around her waist.
She polished off the gothic look with gelled back hair, tweeting: “Loving this slicked back hair by Michael Silva.”
Kim Kardashian also applied theatrical eyeshadow and liner, crediting the look to her make-up artist: “Fierce glam tonight by @kristoferbuckle.”
To which he gushed: “What a pleasure to work on a beauty like @KimKardashian.”
It was a nice surprise to see Kim Kardashian experimenting with some varied footwear, after being glued to her favorite shoes of the season recently.
Last evening she chose ankle cuffed heels, compared to her beloved Givenchy boots she wore earlier today for the third time in recent weeks.
Reality star Kim Kardashian was attacked with flour on the red carpet at her own perfume launch in West Hollywood.
Kim Kardashian, 31, was covered in flour after an unidentified Asian woman pelted her at the launch of True Reflection at The London Hotel in West Hollywood.
The reality star arrived dressed-to-the-nines, wearing a black blazer, leather trousers and a bright blue blouse, but within minutes she looked more like a dowdy housewife after a kitchen mishap.
Kim Kardashian’s whole back and shiny hair was covered in the substance, which was later determined as cooking flour, according to TMZ.
TMZ reports that after the attack, Kim Kardashian, who arrived at the hotel with her mother Kris Jenner, was ushered into a private room where she removed her doused jacket and brushed the flour off the rest of her outfit and long brunette locks.
Kim Kardashian opted to go back to the event following the fracas, and the assailant was arrested by police who were called to the scene, according to TMZ.
The fire department was also called to the scene to inspect the substance, which after several minutes they determined as cooking flour.

After Kim Kardashian returned to the event she laughed off the ordeal and even made a joke in light of the incident.
“That probably is the craziest, unexpected, weird thing that ever happened to me,” Kim Kardashian told E! Online.
“Like I said to my makeup artist, I wanted more powder and that’s a whole lot of translucent powder right there.”
Meanwhile her mother Kris Jenner told the website: “If anybody comes at me with something, call security.”
According to E! Online, the woman ran off after she threw the flour, but didn’t get very far when Kim Kardashian’s representation intercepted her and held onto her before security took over.
Kim Kardashian has not pressed charges over the incident and the unidentified woman has been released, according to a press release from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
Moments before the assailant launched their attack, Kim Kardashian was blissfully unaware of what was to come, happily posing for pictures and doing interviews with the press.
The attack may have quite possibly have come from a protester opposing Kim Kardashian’s love affair with fur.
In November 2011, Kim Kardashian was the target of a PETA campaign.
The animal rights group posted a billboard in Los Angeles that featured a photo of the curvy star wearing a fur-trimmed jacket.
A picture of two foxes was included, along with the caption: “Kim: These babies miss their mother. Is she on your back?”
The attack comes just a few months after somebody flour bombed Kim Kardashian’s best friend Jonathan Cheban in New York City while he was walking with the reality star near her boutique Dash last December.
The unidentified person threw the flour in Jonathan Cheban’s face yelling: “This is for Kris Humphries!”
Jonathan Cheban and Kim Kardashian’s ex-husband Kris Humphries had a notoriously rocky relationship, which was played out on Kim’s reality show Kim and Kourtney Take New York.
“I think it’s pathetic that someone would go to this length to show their support for someone,” Jonathan Cheban told Us Weekly following the ordeal.
“With fans like that, who needs enemies?”
Kris Humphries representation also released a statement at the time, denying that he had any involvement.
“[He] would never condone hateful and unacceptable behavior like that to anyone, in any situation,” the statement said.
Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries notoriously split last year after just 72 days of marriage.
Kim Kardashian’s little sister Khloe immediately took to her Twitter account to express both her outrage and praise for her sister’s dignified reaction after the flour pelting.
Khloe Kardashian wrote: “I’m proud of how Kim handled the situation.”
Kim Kardashian’ sister then later added in defense: “I wish I was with my sister tonight. I bet you that woman wouldn’t have dared tried a thing…”
Kim Kardashian took the Twitter and unveiled a photo promoting her new perfume and has made it clear that she was inspired by Hollywood icon Elizabeth Taylor.
Kim Kardashian, 31, tells her fans that she is “channeling [sic] ElizabethTay [sic]” in her True Reflection ad campaign.
The reality star has smokey-eye and wears a silver, sleeveless dress with a plunging neckline.
It is the second photo that she has posted online from the upcoming promotion.
Kim Kardashian tweets: “Another pic from my True Reflection fragrance ad campaign…ultra glam!
“LOVE red lips! #Channeling ElizabethTay.”

She has made no secret of her love of Elizabeth Taylor, who died at the age of 79 in March 2011.
At the end of the last year, Kim Kardashian spent $65,000 at a Christie’s auction to buy a set of three gold and jade Lorraine Schwartz bangles once owned by Elizabeth Taylor.
Kim Kardashian was one of the final people to interview Elizabeth Taylor in an article that was published in the March issue of US Harper’s Bazaar.
She said to the Oscar-winner: “You are my idol.
“But I’m six husbands and some big jewels behind. What should I do?”
Elizabeth Taylor told her: “I never planned to acquire a lot of jewels or a lot of husbands.
“For me, life happened, just as it does for anyone else.”
Kim Kardashian’s Twitter followers obviously agree that she has captured the spirit of the Cleopatra star.
One fan tweeted: “@Kim Kardashian is the modern day Elizabeth Taylor! Those pictures are timeless.”
Earlier Kim Kardashian posted another picture from the photo shoot, this time a side shot in which she is wearing a pale pink lipstick.
The reality star told her fans: “That was a pic from my new fragrance ad campaign True Reflection, which comes out this spring!
“It is so different than my other fragrances!”
Kim Kardashian has just returned to Los Angeles after a brief trip to Dallas, where she visited her sister Khloe, who moved to Texas with her husband, basketball player Lamar Odom.
The couple relocated after Lamar Odom was transferred from the LA Lakers to the Dallas Mavericks.
