Clearly one of the gifts Queen Latifah received this year is déjà vu. For starters, she’s returned to FOX in Lee Daniels’ new TV show Star, the same network she became a household name on when she starred as boss bitch Khadijah James in Living Single.
Unfortunately, also during that time, Queen was involved in a carjacking in Harlem which resulted in the critical wounding of her bodyguard. Well, that misfortune has come back once again in the form of another robbery.
E! News reports that on December 20th, Queen Latifah (real name: Dana Owens) was the victim of a carjacking! Well, kind of. Technically she wasn’t in the car when it happened, but that didn’t stop somebody from stealing her 2015 Mercedes Benz S63 from an Atlanta area gas station. The car was being driven by someone else at the time. When the driver drove up to a Shell gas station to feed the car premium gas, a white BMW reportedly pulled up beside him, hopped into the driver seat and peeled off laughing and yelling “BYE BITCH!!!” while blasting “Just Another Day“ to really twist the knife.
After discovering Queen was the owner of the vehicle, Fulton County Police reached out to her and she was cooperative during the investigation. Eventually the car was recovered at a southwest Atlanta apartment complex. After the car was returned to her, she searched it and discovered empty bottles of fruit punch and lemonade. What messy ass thieves! I mean, take the car, but don’t leave it all nasty, you assholes!
Unfortunately, no arrests have been made yet and the investigation is ongoing. Security cameras at the apartment complex did spot three males near the car as well as two other vehicles believed to be stolen, so there is somewhat of a lead. Hopefully the police will find whomever is responsible soon, but they’re useless at this point. I think it’s time for Queen to dust off her cornrow wig, call up her Set It Off costars Vivica Fox, Jada Pinkett-Smith and Kimberly Elise and search all of Atlanta for the fools responsible for this fuckery. They would be like the En Vogue of crime fighting.
And I genuinely like Queen, so I hope they find whoever did this quickly. But as punishment they should make whoever is responsible wear her Queen of Hearts perfume. If you’ve ever smelled it, you’ll understand why that fits the crime.
