Khloe Kardashian slams 'fraudulent' charity claims

KHLOE KARDASHIAN has slammed allegations that her basketball star husband has been operating a fraudulent cancer charity.

Earlier this week Lamar Odom was accused by sports broadcaster ESPN for failing to give considerable money raised to children in need following an investigation.

The 28-year-old reality star first rubbished the claims on Twitter page, writing: "I would never do anything like that point blank. But hey. People will believe whatever they want no matter what you do."

She then posted a lengthy note on her website claiming that "Lamar constituted more than 90% of the money raised by the foundation."

"It is unfortunate that my husband 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," she wrote.

Adding: "The millions of dollars personally contributed by Lamar constituted more than 90% of the money raised by the foundation. All of the funds donated by Lamar and the other contributions to Cathy’s Kids were used for one of the foundation’s intended charitable purposes. Not one penny went to help Lamar personally or any member of his family."

The couple then removed all of the items for sale on their eBay store, seemingly strengthening the 'fraudulent' allegations.

The ESPN investigation, called Outside The Lines, claimed that none of the $2.2 million accumulated had been given to any cancer-related causes since Cathy's Kids was founded in 2004.

According to Radaronline.com, they had made thousands of dollars through the store, with a total of $1,425.06 (£942,278.78) after their last day of sale on Monday (April 1). The site, which was founded by Lamar in 2004, said that "a portion of the proceeds benefit Cathy's Kids".
