MAC has a lawsuit on their hands!

Harlem resident Starkeema Greenridge, 28, is suing MAC Cosmetics, claiming she contracted herpes from a Rihanna-endorsed lipstick while attending the singer’s concert on May 7 at the Barclays Center.

According to NY Daily News, the woman filed suit in Manhattan Supreme Court Monday claiming that she contracted the virus as and when a representative of MAC Cosmetics applied a used tube of RiRi Woo to her lips. Greenridge said she noticed a cold sore on her lips two days later then doctors diagnosed her with herpes. She works as a waitress and is seeking compensation for “mental anguish and emotional distress” caused by the incident. She also claims that she lost a lot of money because she had to take off from work for two weeks.

MAC has not released a statement regarding the lawsuit.
