Woman Claims Rihanna’s Lipstick Gave Her Herpes
A women who attended Rihanna’s concert at Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn is claiming she got herpes from Rihanna’s M.A.C. lipstick, RiRi Woo.
According to the NY Daily News, Starkeem Greenidge claims she was approached by a M.A.C. rep, who was passing out lipstick samples at Rihanna’s show. The rep gave her a sample and applied it to her upper lip.
The lawsuit claims the lipstick had been previously applied to the lips of others at the concert, and someone had herpes.
The day after the concert, “my whole lip was irritated and hugely swollen.”
Greenidge says she went to a doctor and he told her she had herpes. The suit accuses M.A.C. of shoddy business practices, applying lipstick directly from the tube instead of using either disposable samples or individual swabs.
She is suing M.A.C. Cosmetics, Inc, not Rihanna, for unspecified damages.
