Mary J. Blige was feeling extra charitable the other day while shopping in New York’s Diane von Furstenberg store. Mary apprently overheard a shopper who was there to pick up a dress on hold. The chick “mistakenly” thought the dress being held was $500, but in fact it was $900 (you know how those 9’s and 5’s sound alike over the phone…) Anyway…she couldn’t afford the balance. Well….Ms. Moneybags decides to help out the poor stranger by giving her the difference on the dress.
Blige told the saleswoman, “Go get the girl. I want to pay for the balance on the dress.” The customer at first declined Blige’s offer but relented after the singer said, “I know what it’s like to want something and not be able to have it. I insist.” The customer wanted to send her a check for the balance, but Blige said, “Just enjoy it. I’m blessed, so let me do this.” (Source)
I commend Mary…but the chick was there buying a $500 dress, so I’m almost certain that she wasn’t like STARVING or anything. But hey….it’s Mary’s money and it was a very sweet gesture. I’m just hoping to run into Mary at the gas station. This dayum Bentley’s a b*tch to fill up…. 😕
