Khloe Kardashian Defends Lamar Odom Over Charity Scandal

Khloe Kardashian is coming to her husband’s defense after ESPN reported that things are far from being kosher at Lamar Odom’s charity, Cathy’s Kids.

The organization was developed to help underprivileged youth, as well as support continued cancer research, but according to a report, the bulk of the money donated to the charity went towards helping “elite” youth basketball teams. And Lamar didn’t help his case or the charity’s when replying, “It’s my money,” after being asked about the scandal.

The report, coupled with Lamar’s verbal gaffe, prompted Khloe to go into damage control mode, releasing this statement on her official website:

“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,” Khloe explains on a statement posted on her website.

“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. 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.”

According to Khloe, the organization made a decision to focus on helping inner-city youth, while departing from their initial desire to aid in cancer research too.

It was Mrs. Hart’s first red carpet since giving birth to the couple’s first child, Kenzo Kash, just three weeks ago. To say it was a snapback is an understatement. The 30-year-old, who worked out during her entire pregnancy, look sexy and svelt in a elegant black number while her superstar hubby hit the carpet in a black suit with white trim.

Although the couple faced some bumps in the road earlier this year with Kev being extorted over a video showing him cheating on his wife, the couple has bounced back. And on Tuesday night’s jungle-themed red carpet Hart told HipHollywood, “My wife is just an amazing woman … I would not be me right now without that woman in my life.”

You can see Kev, alongside Dewayne “The Rock” Johnson, Jack Black and more, when “Jumani: Welcome To The Jungle” hits theaters on December 20th.
