Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s kids charity is a sham … a front to swindle cash … this according to a new lawsuit.
Julien’s Auctions claims it struck a deal to sell Abdul-Jabbar’s marquis memorabilia — championship rings, jerseys, the works.
Deborah Morales, Kareem’s manager and longtime personal friend, negotiated with Julien’s and — as part of the deal — she allegedly got them to donate $300K to the famed bballer’s Skyhook Foundation charity.
Julien’s says after it forked over the cash, it discovered Skyhook was not in the charity business at all. it was a front to pad the pockets of Skyhook’s mucky mucks … according to the lawsuit.
Julien’s wants Morales to return its $300k and punitive damages to boot.
BTW … Kareem is NOT named as a defendant.
We’ve reached out to reps for Kareem, Skyhook, and Morales — but haven’t yet heard back.
This makes you think what is going on with these ball players. Did you donate any money to this charity?
