She has a big heart as well as a big wallet. Taylor donated $50,000 to a US hospital, which will be used for "high-tech music therapy" to soothe children suffering from cancer. "Taylor Swift's gift will help lift the spirits of many patients during a difficult time." said Steven M. Altschuler, MD, chief executive officer of The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia which received the 'Trouble' singer's payment. "Taylor Swift's music is an inspiration to so many of our teen patients. We can think of no better way to use her gift than to grow our Adolescent and Young Adult initiative designed to support the emotional well-being of our teens with cancer," added Lamia Barakat, Ph.D., psychologist and director of the Psychosocial Services Program at the cancer center.

The 37-year-old singer-songwriter and his sultry wife met in high school and were wed in 2005. She left him after his cheating ways became fodder for the blogs. Thicke was spotted taking a smoke break early Wednesday morning before heading out in New York City. Paula reportedly told friends she will never go back to her philandering husband.
