Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom have removed all of the items for sale on their eBay store after they faced allegations of running “fraudulent” cancer charity Cathy’s Kids.
An investigation by ESPN claimed cancer charity Cathy’s Kids, which was set up by Lamar Odom, has failed to give considerable money raised to children in need.
The Outside The Lines investigation 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.
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.
According to Radaronline.com, the couple had made thousands of dollars through the store, with a total of $1,425.06 after their last day of sale on Monday.
On their eBay store, Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom state on each item that “a portion of the proceeds benefit Cathy’s Kids”, which was founded by the NBA player in 2004.
By Tuesday the shop was empty, with the message that there is now “currently no items for sale”, with a returned entry of “0 items”.
Earlier this week questions were raised about the use of the money after investigators rifled through eight years of Lamar Odom’s tax records.
Instead of funds going to cancer-related patients, it has reportedly been mostly used to finance two elite youth basketball travel teams.
ESPN says it uncovered that at least 60 percent of the $2.2 million has helped fund the AAU teams.
Cathy’s Kids is currently $256,000 in debt largely due to a loan Lamar Odom made to the charity, according to his business manager and charity’s treasurer, Lester Knispel.
The new ESPN revelations now allegedly see Lamar Odom in danger of violating tax law as, as ESPN states, if a charity spends funds not consistent with its stated mission, it could be considered as fraud by the IRS or state attorney general’s office.
If fraudulent activity is found, prosecutors could in turn file charges against Lamar Odom.
Khloe Kardashian has been heavily involved with Cathy’s Kids by setting up a personal eBay account with the LA Clippers star in which they have been selling off personal effects to raise funds.
