Mary Blige shows her benevolent side while shoppingJune 17th, 2008 - 4:58 pm ICT by ANI
New York, June 17 (ANI): Mary J. Blige has shown that she is not just a stunning singer, but also a beautiful person at heart.
The American star paid 400 dollars from her own pockets last week, when she found a girl unable to pay the complete bill for the dress she had chosen.
A source has revealed that Blige was at the Diane von Furstenberg store in the Meatpacking District when she overheard a girl having a problem at the register.
“The girl had a dress on hold that she loved, and the bill was $900. She thought it was only $500, and she couldn’t afford it,” the New York Post quoted the source as saying.
The source also revealed that Blige told the saleswoman that she would like to pay for the balance on the dress.
The customer was initially reluctant to accept Blige’s offer.
She, however, accepted it when the singer said, “I know what it’s like to want something and not be able to have it. I insist.”
Although the girl wanted to send Blige a check for the balance, Blige said, “Just enjoy it. I’m blessed, so let me do this.” (ANI)
