Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nydailynews.com: “Olivia Newton-John’s ‘Grease’ jacket is returned to her by anonymous billionaire who paid $243K at auction”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The anonymous bidder who shelled out nearly a quarter-million dollars for the leather jacket Olivia Newton-John wore in ‘Grease’ has paid it forward in a special way.

According to Julien's Auctions, the bidder, who is the self-professed "No. 1 fan" of the singer/actress, returned the iconic costume to her and donated the $243,000 he originally spent to the Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Center in Melbourne, Australia.

The billionaire buyer, a physician and media tech entrepreneur hopelessly devoted to Newton-John, wanted to keep his identity private to the public.

In a video clip shared on Facebook by the Los Angeles-based Julien's Auctions, which auctioned off several items belonging to the four-time Grammy Award winner, Newton-John has her eyes closed as the unknown buyer approaches her with a hot pink-wrapped present.

The buyer begins presenting the gift and telling her, "The odds of beating a recurring cancer using the newest emerging therapies is 1,000-fold greater than someone appearing out of the blue, buying your most famous and cherished icon, and returning it to you."
