No, the plaintiff is not claiming she caught Herpes from Rihanna herself, but rather the pop star’s lipstick line.
Starkeema Greenidge claims she caught the disease from a sample of MAC’s RiRi Woo lipstick, which had been used on previous customers at the singer’s Brooklyn concert on May 7.
Greenidge’s lawyer says that a fresh tube was not used on the plaintiff and had been used on other patrons. Two days later, she had a cold sore.
The plaintiff says she missed two weeks of work and spent a lot of money.
