Report indicates that the Pop star Madonna has pledged to donate the damages over ‘invasion of privacy’ to The Mercy James Institute for Paediatric Surgery.

According  source, Madonna and her adopted twin daughters, Stella and Estere,have accepted undisclosed damages from Associated Newspapers over a “serious invasion of privacy”.

Madonna, who adopted the four-year-olds in February, brought the case at London’s high court over a January 2017 article which caused her “considerable personal distress and anxiety”, her solicitor Jenny Afia said.

It revealed the girls’ names, race, age, and that they lived in an orphanage in Malawi and were the subject of pending applications for adoption by Madonna.

Afia said: “The Mail Online published it at a time when, as the journalist ought to have appreciated, Madonna would be powerless to protect the girls from harm.

“Their actions could, in her view, have threatened the integrity and/or outcome of the adoption process which would have had potentially life-changing implications for the girls, as well as for Madonna and her family.”

Afia added that the publisher had agreed to pay Madonna’s legal costs and undisclosed damages and Madonna would donate the damages to the Mercy James Institute for Paediatric Surgery in Malawi.
