Lamar Odom has been accused of failing to donate money raised through his charity to cancer research.

The LA Clippers star - who has been married to reality TV star and 'X Factor' USA host Khloe Kardashian for three years - is facing allegations that none of the money raised through his foundation Cathy's Kids, which was named after his late mother who died from cancer when he was 12, has been donated to help fight cancer.

According to official records, obtained by ESPN's 'Outside the Lines', there is no evidence that any of the $2.2 million raised through Lamar's organisation, which was set up with the intention of raising money for underprivileged kids in New York and LA and for cancer research, went to a cancer charity.

But the basketball star's tax records show that $1.3 million of the total amount was used to fund two ''elite'' basketball teams for young people, who reportedly were good enough to already be on the radar of colleges for scholarships and other financial help.

There is allegedly no evidence of where the remaining $900,000 went.

The 33-year-old player brushed off questions about the charity during an interview with ESPN producers and allegedly claimed all of the money raised was his, despite most of it coming through solicitations on he and his wife's websites.

A spokesperson for the couple has yet to comment on the allegations.

Last year singer Mary J. Blige's charity The Mary J. Blige and Steve Stoute Foundation for the Advancement of Women Now Inc., was accused of mishandling funds and failing to pay back a loan.

Speaking about the allegations, Mary previously said: ''The lives of young women are at stake. I feel what they feel. I don't want them to suffer. I promised them something and I'm gonna deliver. Period.

''The problem is that I didn't have the right people in the right places doing the right things. This should have never been allowed to happen, but it did and now we are fixing it.''
