Bostonglobe.com: Khloé Kardashian couldn’t make it to prom with David LeCours.
The reality television star lives on the opposite side of the country, and it’s likely that her schedule was pretty booked.
But she did the next best thing to show her appreciation to one of her biggest fans. Instead of showing up and accompanying the 18-year-old Agawam student to the event, she shipped him a package full of clothes and other goods. And on the big night, she sent him and his date to the dance party in style.
On Friday, LeCours got a taste of the Hollywood lifestyle when he arrived at his prom in a shiny, white limousine — courtesy of Kardashian.
“I was so overwhelmed,” LeCours said in an e-mail to the Globe. “The prom was so amazing, especially since Khloé made the night so much more memorable with the ride she sent me with.”
The series of events that led to LeCours connecting with Kardashian began in January.
It was then that LeCours made a video asking the reality star to his prom, which he posted on Twitter. It was a move many high school students have attempted with other celebrities in the past, a risk worth taking in the age of social media.
While many teenagers never received a response, LeCours’ prom-posal somehow worked its way through the social media static. It quickly garnered hundreds of retweets and thousands of “likes,” and eventually landed in Kardashian’s path.
“David!!! Why are you the cutest?!?!?!” Kardashian replied, just hours after the video was posted.
At first, things seemed promising. Kardashian told LeCours that she would see if she could go, but would need a few weeks to sort out the details.
“You are so bomb for this video!!” she said. “You made my day boo!!!!!! We would have the best time!! I hope I can go! What would we wear?!?!”
But in the end, plans fell through.
LeCours said he found out Kardashian couldn’t go in March after speaking with her assistant — and then he got to speak to Kardashian face-to-face on his iPhone. LeCours sent the Globe a video of himself FaceTiming with the star.
“I’m getting you a party bus,” Kardashian told him in the video. “And I sent you a little present that should be coming to you.”
She told LeCours that she was “bummed” she couldn’t be there in the flesh, and that she did everything in her power to make it fit her schedule.
LeCours said although he was slightly disappointed that he couldn’t carom around with a Kardashian by his side, prom night was still a special occasion.
“My date, who is my best friend, Kristie Scavotto, had so much fun with me,” he said. “She’s the greatest friend anyone could ask for, and we had a blast.”
