Kim Kardashian auctioned off her clothes on eBay to benefit Philippines typhoon victims. Nice, right? Except that only 10% of the proceeds actually went to the relief fund.   (AP Photo/Mal Fairclough, File)

(Newser) – Kim Kardashian got herself in hot water recently when it was revealed that just a small fraction of her recent "charity" auction proceeds actually went to charity. But she's far from the only celebrity to get embroiled in such a scandal. Radar rounds up 14 more, including more members of the Kardashian Klan.

Caught in a scandal? I'd rather read about her being caught in a brush fire.

Odom sure looks like he's in the scam pretty deep to use the "IRS "claim. The IRS can't and won't tell any organization how much or little they pay to "administrators", as long as the everyone involved file their own income taxes properly. Legitimate charities pay only what is necessary to get the donations to the intended uses. In this case Odom probably has friends and/or family "administering" his charity, so he doesn't care if anything at all goes to charity, otherwise he wouldn't be defending them...
