Khloe Kardashian has slammed allegations her husband Lamar Odom has been operating a fraudulent cancer charity.
Lamar Odom was accused by ESPN for failing to give considerable money raised to children in need following an investigation.
Now Khloe Kardashian has written messages to her online fans rubbishing the claims.
The 28-year-old reality star first of all wrote to one fan on her Twitter page: “I would never do anything like that point blank. But hey. People will believe whatever they want no matter what you do.”
Khloe Kardashian then posted a note on her own website to set the record straight.
“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.
“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.”
Khloe Kardashian went on: “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.”
Her comments come on the same day she and Lamar Odom removed all of the items for sale on their eBay store – coinciding with 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.
And as the findings of the investigation were released, Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom then seemed to delete all items up for auction on their joint eBay store.
Up until they removed the items on Tuesday, Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom had been selling everything from pre-owned clothes, including sports bras of Khloe’s, as well as sunglasses and other accessories.
On the site, the couple state on each item that “a portion of the proceeds benefit Cathy’s Kids”.
