Khloe Kardashian’s husband Lamar Odom has been accused of operating a fraudulent $2.2 million cancer charity.
It is being claimed that a charity set up by the couple to raise money for children in need, Cathy’s kids, has not given the $2.2 million it has accumulated to any cancer-related causes since it was founded in 2004, according to Radaronline.com.
Instead it is claimed that 60 percent of the money raised was used to finance two elite youth basketball travel teams.
Lamar’s high school coach and best man at his wedding, Jerry DeGregorio is paid a median annual salary of around $72,00 to run the charity.
Khloe has been heavily involved with the charity by setting up a personal eBay account with her husband in which they have been selling off personal effects. The eBay account has now been closed down.
UPDATE: Kardashian’s people say Odom was duped:
“It is unfortunate that Lamar Odom has been the target of an attack on athletes’ charities, although he has personally contributed approximately $2.2 million to his foundation, Cathy’s Kids, to fulfill its charitable purposes that include helping underprivileged inner-city youth,” says Khloe’s rep
