Lizzo surprised her mother, Shari, with a new wardrobe for her birthday in a sweet surprise captured on video.
The “Rumors” singer posted a clip of the gesture on Instagram on Friday, showing her mother walking into a closet full of clothes, shoes and accessories.
“Do you like these clothes? Lizzo can be heard asking her mother. “These are your clothes.”
“I bought you a wardrobe,” the singer / rapper added later, causing his mother to cry.
“Ever since dad passed away you tell me it’s hard to dress well for yourself,” Lizzo wrote in the caption of the post, which also tagged stylist and designer Jason Rembert. “I know I can’t bring your best friend back … but I still want to give you the world.”
Lizzo has already spoken of the mourning of her father, who died in 2009.
The singer told co-host Gayle King on “CBS This Morning” last year that she suffered from depression and felt she “had no purpose” after her father died.
Speaking of her life’s journey since then, Lizzo noted in a Twitter post on New Years Eve in 2019 that she was able to buy a house for her mother 10 years after her father died.
“Anything can happen in a decade,” she wrote.
In December, Lizzo shared a video on Instagram of her giving her mom a luxury SUV for Christmas.
“I remember crying in my car when my father passed away, no job, no money and nowhere to live, wishing I could someday support my family,” she captioned this message. “I [couldn’t] do it for my dad so i make sure to spoil mom.
