The Hawks are probing claims that money is being misappropriated from burn victim Pippie Kruger's foundation.

"A woman came forward with allegations that funds from the foundation are being used to finance her mother's lifestyle," spokesman Captain Paul Ramaloko said on Tuesday.

No formal criminal case had been opened.

Pippie Kruger sustained third-degree burns when a firelighter gel is believed to have exploded in her father's hands on New Year's Eve in 2011. She was two-years-old at the time.

Last June she underwent pioneering surgery in which her own cloned skin, grown in a US laboratory in Boston, was grafted onto her wounds.
