Stability of the Tangent Bundle of the Wonderful Compactification of an Adjoint Group

Let $G$ be a complex linear algebraic group which is simple of adjoint type. Let $\overline G$ be the wonderful compactification of $G$. We prove that the tangent bundle of $\overline G$ is stable with respect to every polarization on $\overline G$.
