Having dined together on Monday, Madonna and Stella McCartney met up again last night for a meal at Assaggi in Notting Hill. I'm sure Madonna's glad of her pal's support, as Mercy's father has come forward saying he wants to support his daughter and didn't know she was alive. Even though she has a lot to deal with, Madonna's still trying to help others, and has responded to the mayor of Pacentro's plea with a "substantial donation" to the victims of the earthquake in Italy. Although her publicist Liz Rosenberg did not confim the amount, a source claims it's around $500,000, and Madonna has said: "I am happy to lend a helping hand to the town that my ancestors are from. My heart goes out to the families that have lost loved ones or their homes." Madonna's past, present and future family is certainly at the front of her mind.
