During an appearance Tuesday morning on LIVE with Kelly, actress Queen Latifah had some choice words for the people who stole her Mercedes-Benz in south Fulton County last month.

“So I see you,” she said as she turned to the camera. “Let me tell you. That wasn’t cool. You messed up a real good night.”

The award-winning rapper and actress appeared on LIVE, hosted by Kelly Ripa, to promote Lee Daniels' new Atlanta-produced show "Star." Queen Latifah co-stars in the show, which airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. on FOX 5 Atlanta.

She was filming for the show when her 2015 Mercedes-Benz S63 was stolen, she told Ripa.

The incident occurred just before 9:20 p.m. Dec. 20 at a Shell station on Fulton Industrial Boulevard, Fulton police spokeswoman Cpl. Maureen Smith said.

About that time, a white BMW pulled beside Queen Latifah’s 2015 Mercedes-Benz S63. Someone got out of the BMW and jumped into the Mercedes as Queen Latifah’s associate pumped gas.

She was in the middle of her last scene for the day when she learned about the car theft. She figured she’d better change before meeting police, she told Ripa.

“And it was funny because it was a flashback scene, and I’m dressed like almost as 90s Queen Latifah,” she said. “I got this bright orange shirt, my hair’s in a ponytail high crimped. I got these tight pink jeans and like some Dock Martens and stuff.”

Her car was returned about three hours later, she told Ripa.

Police found it at a Mechanicsville apartment complex in the 500 block of McDaniel Street. The only damage was to a rear rim.

“To everyone out there who’s called me, sent me messages, I love you,” Queen Latifah said. “I’m fine. I was not carjacked. I wasn’t nowhere near the car.”
