The Lamar Odom charity scandal continues.

Although Lamar’s charity, Cathy’s Kids, claims it gave $1.3 million to multiple Amateur Athletic Union basketball teams, the AAU president tells RumorFix, “We never received any money from Cathy’s Kids or Lamar Odom.”

While AAU president Henry Forrest says it’s possible Lamar and his charity made a donation directly to a few teams without his knowledge, he says, “It’s impossible anyone donated $1.3 million to a team.” He says donations to the AAU, which works with second graders to high school students, usually are in the hundreds of dollars or thousands of dollars — never millions!

When the scandal broke, Khloe Kardashian’s rep told RumorFix, “Cathy’s Kids helped fund multiple AAU basketball teams providing underprivileged youth with opportunities enriching their lives, providing financial support for coaching and travel to tournaments, helping inner-city youth on a path toward success and leading many participants go on to college.”
