Taylor Swift keeps her promise”

Now, she has kept her promise.

Pop superstar Taylor Swift has made a "generous" donation to a United States charity that supports victims of sexual assault after winning a groping lawsuit against a former radio DJ, the organization confirmed.

Workers in support of pop singer Taylor Swift in office across from the federal courthouse put up a new sign as the jury gets the case in the civil trial involving the singer in a case in federal court Monday, August 14, 2017, in Denver.

"I acknowledge the privilege that I benefit from in life, in society and in my ability to shoulder the enormous cost of defending myself in a trial like this", Swift said in a statement released on Monday night.

"The experience of sexual assault and domestic violence can be extremely isolating".

The pop star delivered unflinching testimony describing the incident, saying she wanted to help other women make their voices heard.

The Joyful Heart Foundation ("Foundation joyful heart"), which defends the victims of all kinds of sexual assaults, confirmed on Thursday that it had received a sum of money to Swift, but without specifying the amount. The exact amount hasn't been disclosed to the public.

Hargitay took to Twitter to express her appreciation this morning.

The foundation itself had tweeted Wednesday that Swift's "courage & generous investment in our work send a powerful message to survivors: you are not alone". What happens to you account.
