Queen Latifah is assuring friends and fans she is fine after a car she owns was stolen from outside a petrol station in Atlanta, Georgia last month (Dec16).

The 2015 Mercedes Benz S63 was driven off by an unidentified man as a friend of the 46-year-old took the motor to get gas and oil while she was filming her new show Star.

When the news broke, some people assumed Latifah was the victim of a carjacking, but the singer/actress insists the situation was blown out of proportion.

“To everyone out there who has called me, sent me messages, ‘I love you, I’m fine, I was not carjacked’,” she told Live! with Kelly on Tuesday (10Jan17). “I wasn’t nowhere near the car. But the car was stolen from a friend of mine from a gas station.”
