Sarah Jessica Parker

Tight with Makeup Artist

Popped for Shoplifting

EXCLUSIVE

Sources connected with Sarah Jessica Parker told TMZ the woman nabbed for shoplifting sunglasses at a Norway airport Wednesday was employed by the Nobel Peace Prize group ... but TMZ has learned she's worked side by side with SJP for years.

The woman -- Leslie Lopez -- has been Sarah's personal makeup artist since 2005. She's traveled with her extensively, both domestically and internationally.

For whatever reason, Sarah's people wanted it to look like the makeup artist had no relationship with the actress, but that's simply not true. They went so far as saying ... the makeup artist (never revealing her name) was NOT on Sarah's payroll. Yet all that meant was someone else picked up the tab.

As you can see from the video, Sarah didn't want to talk about it this AM in NYC.

As for stealing the expensive sunglasses at the airport ... as we first reported, Lopez paid a $1,400 fine and was then allowed to leave the country. Sources connected to Lopez tell TMZ ... she "mistakenly" took the glasses out of the store and paid the fine not because she's a shoplifter but because it was the only way to say farvel to Norway.

And now, they´ve got Leslie on camera shoplifting in a store in downtown Oslo.
She walks into the store "Eger" tells a staff member that she is SJP personal make-up artist, and SJP needs a few things, after a while she is left to herself, and while she is browsing, she unpacks a Clarin lipstick, hides it on herself, and brings a few other items to the cashier, and suddenly tells the cashier she has forgotten to bring her card.
She says she will be back later to pick up the things.
After she left the empty box of the lipstick is found, and the video shows the rest.
She never returns, this happened last monday.
The theft is reported to the Oslo police.

Why is she stealing if she has such a great job? This loser would have been FIRED on the spot and left at the airport.

After seeing Leslie Lopez surveillance photos on tv tonight from another theft Lopez did while she was in Norway, it is clear that Lopez is a kleptomaniac and need help immediately.

Always loved SJP, guess I can't blame her for not covering up that face wart thing all those yrs on sex n the city. Always thought they could've done her much better justice even as the 'everyday NY'er girl'

I love the CZ Falconer Sweater that Sarah Jessica Parker is wearing on the cover of The Hollywood Reporter with her Make up artist.
