Fulton County, Atlanta. Queen Latifah had her 2015 Mercedes Benz S63 stolen over the holidays. Robbers took the car at a Fulton County Shell station in Atlanta Georgia just a few days before Christmas.

Latifah's security guard was behind the wheel. He brought the vehicle to a gas station. Latifah was not there during the incident, sources revealed.

A white BMW pulled up beside the car while the security guard was pumping gas. The thieves exited the BMW and jumped into the Mercedes Benz's driver's seat and quickly sped away. There was a contract that was inside a Tumi bag inside the vehicle. The contract was the 42-year-old actress' main cause for concern.
