Anonymous Buyer of Olivia Newton-John’s “Grease” Jacket Returns It to Her, Donates to Her Cancer Center

Olivia Newton-John surely got chills (they’re multiplyin’!) after the winning bidder on her iconic <i>Grease</i> jacket decided to give it back to her. “It should not sit in a billionaire’s closet for country club bragging rights,” the anonymous buyer told Newton-John in a video that blurs out his face. “The odds of beating a recurring cancer using the newest emerging therapies is a thousand-fold greater than someone appearing out of the blue, buying your most famous and cherished icon, and returning it to you.” The bidder, who paid a whopping $243,000 to win the jacket at auction last month, also said he’s donating that amount to her Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness and Research Center in Australia. The 71-year-old actress–who was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992 and has recently been undergoing treatments for the disease again–said in response, “That is the most incredibly generous thing to do for me. I’m so grateful and I’m just blown away.”<br />
