'Kind' John Mayer

John Mayer has been branded "kind, caring and compassionate" by a children's charity.

The 'Gravity' singer has come under fire over a recent interview he gave - in which he described sleeping with ex-girlfriend Jessica Simpson as like "a drug" and used the word "n****r" - but has now been defended by The Isaac Foundation, which raises money for children with a rare enzyme deficiency known as MPS VI.

On the official blog, the organisation wrote: "I don't care what Playboy magazine writes about the man, and I don't care what John says to the journalists that write what they do about him. In America, it's all part of the game - get in a magazine, light up the blogosphere, stay relevant - end of story."

John - who is more famed for his womanising ways and wild sex life - has donated money to the group as well as spending lots of time with Isaac, the little boy with MPS VI whose parents founded the organisation.

The foundation added: "I know he has said things that turn people off. I know he's said things that make him sound like someone you would never want your children around - ever. But I also know the person that he truly is and the good things he tries to accomplish with the celebrity status he's achieved.

"Write what you want about John, think what you will, but before you hand down your verdict on what kind of person he really is, please consider the good he has done in his life."

Following the publication of the interview, John broke down in tears live on stage, saying he could no longer cope with attention that surrounds his life.
