Queen Latifah robbed of crown jewels

Queen LatifahQueen Latifah isn’t exactly starting off 2009 under the best of circumstances. While vacationing in Tobago, The Secret Life of Bees star had over $10,000 worth of jewelry stolen from her luxury villa, reports Newsday, the Caribbean island’s local newspaper. Tobago police believe a staff member of the $1,000-per-night Stone Haven Resort may have committed the crime. “Several searches are being carried out and the police are trying to have the jewelry returned to Queen Latifah. Investigators said the larceny seems to be an inside job and efforts are being made round the clock to make a breakthrough,” says acting police commissioner James Philbert. Good thing she wasn’t traveling with her Grammy.

    $10,000 sounds like a lot to me. Apparently this was in a Caribbean newspaper, thus making it news. Comprendez?

    i wish i had 10,000$ in ANYTHING…it sure wouldnt be jewelry id spend it on tho, dont you think with paris just being robbed, these stars would be more careful and perhaps put their stuff in a safe? i feel bad for her, but again, who needs THAT much jewelry?

    Supposedly the jewelry belonged to one of Latifah’s entourage. I wonder if George Clooney is really ‘desperate’ enough to be dating Paris Hilton?? ROFLMFAO!
