Queen Latifah’s Car Stolen At Gas Station
Queen Latifah recently had her car stolen at the gas station in Georgia.
On Wednesday, TMZ reported the robbery that happened days before Christmas when the 46-year-old actress and singer’s security guard had taken her 2015 Mercedes to a gas station near Atlanta. (RELATED: Queen Latifah Says ‘Racism’ Still Exists Today And That Has To ‘Change’)
According to the report, the security guard was standing by the car gassing up the vehicle when another car pulled up alongside him and the passenger jumped inside, started the car and then took off with the car.
The actress, who was not at the gas station during the robbery, was allegedly very worried about one item in the car — a contract of some sort — but the report didn’t specify what the contract was about.
According to a local news report there have been similar crimes in the area with cars being stolen as the person is pumping gas.
