Celebrities are constantly being sued for many strange reasons but this is the strangest, but this by far is the strangest for 2013.
A female fan of Rihanna is suing her “MAC lipstick” after claiming she contracted herpes at a Rihanna concert. Huh?
Weird but it’s true, according to TMZ, Starkeema Greenidge filed a lawsuit in New York against the maker of the RiRi Woo lipstick.
Greenidge claim a representative for M.A.C. approached her at Rihanna concert at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and applied the lipstick to her lips.
Greenidge claims the rep applied the RiRi Woo, red lipstick — endorsed by Rihanna — to her upper lip, told her to press her lips together and spread it around. The suit claims the lipstick had been previously applied to the lips of others at the concert, and someone had the herp. “My whole lip was irritated and hugely swollen.”
Greenidge is suing M.A.C. and not RiRi.
