Uh oh! What has already been a rough year for Khloe Kardashian is about to get worse. She was unceremoniously canned by Simon Cowell after one disastrous season as X-Factor host (after her nipple got some primetime exposure), rumors swirled that O.J. Simpson is her biological father, her struggles to get pregnant have been turned into farcical fodder on Kim And Kourtney Take Miami, and now her candy craving hubby Lamar Odom’s cancer charity is under fire for not actually giving any money to helping fight cancer.
ESPN’s Outside The Lines broke the story that Odom’s charity, Cathy’s Kids, has raised over $2.2 million since its inception in 2004. However, according to eight years worth of IRS tax forms, the charity “never gave any grant money to cancer-related causes and that the charity primarily existed to finance two elite youth basketball travel teams.” Not only is this a bad move from a karma perspective, it is also a violation of tax law, one that could end up with Lamar doing time in the pokey.
Khloe denied the charges via a post on her blog (“Not one penny went to help Lamar personally or any member of his family. No charitable funds were misused”), but Khloe and Lamar raised eyebrows when they pulled down their joint eBay store following the release of this story. Their eBay store sold personal items of theirs, proceeds of which were supposed to be funneled back to the charity.
What say you, dear readers?
