In a wonderful surprise captured on tape, Lizzo surprised her mother, Shari, with a new clothing for her birthday.
On Friday, the “Rumors” singer shared a video of her mother walking into a closet full of clothes, shoes, and accessories on Instagram.“You like these clothes?” Lizzo can be heard asking her mother. “These are your clothes.”
“I got you a wardrobe,” the singer/rapper later added, bringing her mother to tears.
“Ever since daddy passed you’ve been telling me it’s been hard to dress nice for yourself,” Lizzo wrote in the caption for the post, which also tagged stylist and designer Jason Rembert. “I know I can’t bring ur best friend back… but I still wanna give you the world.”
Lizzo has previously spoken about her grief over the death of her father, who passed away in 2009.
Last year, the singer admitted to co-host Gayle King on “CBS This Morning” that she was depressed and thought she “didn’t have a purpose” after her father died.
Lizzo mentioned in a New Year’s Eve 2019 Twitter post about her life’s journey since then that she was able to buy her mother a house 10 years after her father’s death.
Lizzo posted a video on Instagram in December showing her giving her mother a fancy SUV for Christmas.“I remember crying in my car when my daddy passed, no job no money nowhere to live, wishing I could one day provide for my family,” she wrote in the caption of that post. “I [couldn’t] do it for my dad so ima make sure I spoil Mama.”
