Rihanna is doing well and recovering after sustaining bruises to her face and a black eye in an electric scooter accident last week.

On Friday, Sept. 4, the Fenty Beauty founder stopped by Giorgio Baldi restaurant in Santa Monica, California, where the staffers were shocked to see her bruised and battered face after she removed her sunglasses. Rihanna had visible bruises on her forehead and under her eye, with her face appearing swollen in the photos released by TMZ.

A rep for Rihanna has given an update on the "Wild Thoughts" singer's condition, confirming that she is now recovering from her e-scooter accident.

"Rihanna is completely fine now but flipped over on an electric scooter last week and bruised her forehead and face," the singer's rep told People. "Luckily there were no major injuries and she is healing quickly."

Rihanna's accident came less than a month after Simon Cowell broke his back due to an electric bike accident. He underwent a six-hour surgery after the fall and has missed several "America's Got Talent" episodes.

Meanwhile, Rihanna has just debuted her Fenty Skin campaign with gender-neutral, inclusive products. She also shared her skincare routine and opened up about her intention to make positive changes in the beauty industry.

"I wish the leaders of the beauty industry were a more diverse set of pioneers who have not just experienced the culture but have experienced a negligence in the industry whether it comes to their skin tone or skin type," she said.

"I feel like there's so many voids to be filled and we will only know that by the pioneers that have experienced those voids, and the lack of their representation in the industry," Rihanna continued.

The makeup mogul has a lot of things on her plate. Aside from her beauty empire and music career, her highly-anticipated Amazon documentary is set to be released on July 4, 2021.

Peter Berg, the director of Rihanna's documentary, told Collider that they have been working on the project for almost four years now and are aiming to finally release it around the Fourth of July. The release had been delayed because Rihanna has been busy with a variety of business endeavors.

Meanwhile, Vogue U.K. recently included Rihanna in its annual list of 25 influential women this year. The magazine described her as a musician, designer, beauty innovator, businesswoman and philanthropist rolled into one.
