Khloe Kardashian Defends Lamar Odom Against Charity Scam Allegations

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Khloe Kardashian is standing up for her husband in the wake of some seriously scathing allegations.

Earlier this month, ESPN's Outside the Lines investigated the tax returns of numerous athlete-created charities, noting that Lamar Odom's organization (Cathy's Kids) has not contributed a penny to any cancer-related causes.

Moreover, when approached with this information, Odom waved away a reporter, saying of his charity's $2.2 million: "It's my money."

Pretty Khloe Kardashian

But Khloe writes in a new blog post that Odom is referring to the fact that he's personally contributed 90% of that fund to the charity, explaining:

"No charitable funds were misused, and the IRS has repeatedly given Cathy’s Kids a clean bill of health, confirming that there were no improprieties."

Kardashian adds that Cathy's Kids, named after Lamar's late mother, was not set-up solely to assist cancer patients and/or research.

"A decision was ultimately made that the charity should... enrich the lives of underprivileged inner-city youth. It accomplished that goal. Cathy’s Kids helped fund multiple AAU basketball teams providing underprivileged youth with opportunities enriching their lives, providing financial support for coaching and travel to tournaments, helping inner-city youth on a path toward success and leading many participants to go on to college."

We may need to give Lamar the benefit of the doubt here.

Because setting up a charity meant to help those with cancer? And instead using it to line the pockets of his former high school basketball coach, as the ESPN report implied?

Even for someone related to Kim Kardashian, that's pretty low.

Would anyone donate if the charity was for kids to play BB? Doubt it! So they claim it benefits cancer so people will donate, but not one penny is spent on cancer! Sounds like FRAUD to me! If it isn't going to cancer, then remove the bogus claim on your charity page and ask for donations to send poor kids to BB tournaments. SHAME on you Lamar for allowing your wife to sell her crap on eBay in your Charity's name. Your mom must be SO proud of you! NOT. Grow a pair and tell your wife to stop making you look like a fool!

WHY say charity is for cancer if not one penny was used 4 cancer? AND why is this fat b*tch selling her used, nasty clothing on eBay and stating all proceeds go to lamar's charity when the charity has been inactive for years! Filthy liars! Using cancer to scam people out of their money! If the money is going to BB teams, say that and DROP the cancer claim. The entire whoredashian family is disgusting. Odom, run while you can! That family ruined your credibility
