SZA said she had a nasty little run-in with a Sephora staff person in Calabasas, California, while shopping for Fenty Beauty products last month. But now Rihanna, who created the line, sent her a gift to make up for it.
According to SZA, the Sephora worker thought she was stealing and called security. The TDE artist also suggested that someone at the store tried to quell the situation but there still wasn’t an apology given.
SZA used to work for the makeup chain before signing her record deal.
“Lmao Sandy Sephora location 614 Calabasas called security to make sure I wasn’t stealing,” she wrote on April 30. “We had a long talk. U have a blessed day Sandy. Can a b-tch cop her fenty in peace er whut.”
Some of SZA’s fans said they were going to phone the store to complain, while others threatened to pay the staff person a visit.
Then on Saturday, the “Love Galore” singer took to Instagram Stories and let her followers know that Rihanna sent her a Fenty gift card with a note.
“Go buy yo Fenty Beauty in peace sis! One Love,” the missive read.
SZA also captioned the post with the words “Tanks queen.”
People had a lot to say about Rihanna’s kind gesture and left many comments on social media.
Ri’s gift to SZA comes shortly after it was reported that the beauty and fashion maven inked a historic deal with the French luxury goods conglomerate LVMH.
“Reasons why I love her!!” someone wrote about Rihanna on Instagram.
“Love RihRih she has a heart that most celebs don’t,” wrote another.
“😩😩😩😩😩 Omg I need a friend like Rihanna 💕,” a third person commented.
There were also a lot people who tried to get their own gift card from Ri.
“Now that I think about it I was also profiled while browsing the Fenty section,” someone wrote.
