Katy Perry's preacher parents spent 96% of donations to their charity on expenses including 'retreats' at exclusive Marriott Hotels, flights, meals and cars, charity filings reveal.

Keith and Mary Hudson run a religious charity, Keith Hudson Ministries, hosting conferences in Hawaii and San Diego and 'Prophetic Nights', where Mary speaks in tongues and claims to heal members of the audience.

Documents the charity filed with the IRS this month show that in 2019 it raised $185,679 – but spent $178,046 of it on expenses.

The ministry paid out $6,900 for 'occupancy' including hotel stays according to the filing, $8,799 for 'travel' such as air fares, $5,516 for 'auto expenses' and $7,620 for 'meals' – averaging at over $600 per month.

The Santa Barbara, California-based Hudsons also list $84,058 for 'conference expenses', $12,112 for 'other expenses' and $19,448 for 'tithes and offerings'.

After raising $185,679, the charity was left with just $7,633 cash at the end of the year.

I have a theory that American Idol makes its contestants do Contemporary Christian music as a punishment for not winning.  ALLEGEDLY 

I guess the Smile’s sales weren’t enough to cover those expenses. 

What in the Mary Cosby from RHOSLC is going on here! Your daughter is Katy Perry ask her for money!

Religion has been hijacked by disingenuous entrepreneurs due to tax write-offs. It's sad.

Although I'm not the biggest fan of Katy, I really do feel sorry for her that she has to deal with this **** :ohdear_britney_glory_dear,_fingers_hand_face_orange_hide_uh_oh: Her "Christian" parents should know better.

Politicians do the same thing with their campaign funds. You know...it sucks. People shouldn't b dumb enough to donate.

Agreed. You'd think they would know how to handle their charities, or funds well. That's why I'd rather give my money directly to the person instead of give my money to a charity.

This happens so often - people using that 'good Christian' front to hide the fact that they're actually huge pieces of **** while judging other people. Projection - we hate to see it. This is despicable, and I hope there's consequences. :katycream_perry_witness_nod_yes:

Usually, the "good Bible bashing Christians" have skeletons in their own closet, so you're not wrong at all. :ohwut_gaga_sunglasses_shocked_surprised_what_huh:

Exactly. I do the same. My donations are local and in the form of goods rather than funds that way I know how my money is spent! Britney taught me that lesson. Love her for it!

This! Even if I do give someone money, I usually want to make sure they spend it on what they need to, and let them know that they're being taken care of. I also donate things I don't need to people who need them. Britney, and Gaga have both taught me well in that regard.
