It was reported that Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian charity Cathy’s Kids hasn’t been much of a charity. Lamar defended the charity by saying a lot of the money went to AAU programs.
Odom told the reporter, “A lot through AAU basketball in my neighborhood where I come from in South Jamaica, Queens.”
Unfortunately that statement might have been a bit inaccurate.
The president of the Amateur Athletic Union Henry Forrest tells TMZ.
“Cathy’s Kids has never donated to us. They have never, ever contributed to us. On Sunday morning it was mentioned that Cathy’s Kids has contributed to AAU Basketball teams … that is an incorrect statement.”
Most athlete charities are frauds, just good PR. Unless they are directly involved a lot of them are just sham.
