TV host Chelsea Handler insists that she is not dating 50 Cent.
The couple were pictured (above) looking very friendly at The Blue Nile Jazz Club in New Orleans on Sunday.
As soon as the picture hit the web, rumors went wild saying the couple were dating. Now Handler is on damage control. She took to her Twitter page to say ‘Everyone, calm down. I met with Mr. Cent about a potential project. There’s nothing to report yet, I’ll let you know if there is.’
But a source tells US Weekly: ‘It’s been going on a while,’ adding, ‘It’s more of a hookup thing — whenever they are in the same town.’
Yes, you read that right… 50 Cent and Chelsea Handler are reportedly dating!
TMZ is reporting that the couple were spotted getting “hot and heavy” at a New Orleans club on Sunday night. The NY Daily News is reporting that the two have been flirting for months, since he made an appearance on her E! show, Chelsea Lately. The rapper/actor “left [Handler] a flirtatious voicemail after appearing on her show, and even reportedly sent her flowers.”
In August, 50 tweeted “I think @chelseahandler is beautiful I wanta see what that dog lookin at on her page.”
I can’t really believe 50 Cent would be this insensitive. Okay, maybe I can.
Earlier this month 50 Cent Tweeted, “Perez Hilton called me douchebag, so I had my homie shoot up a gay wedding. wasnt his, but made me feel better.”
Now he’s stuck his foot in his mouth again, saying:
Pretty terrible timing for the tweets, considering the suicide of Tyler Clementi is all over the news. The 18-year-old Rutgers University student committed suicide after his roommate taped his sexual encounter with another man, and posted it online.
Wow! He doesn’t even look like the same person! Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson has gone all out for his next role as a cancer-ridden football player in Things Fall Apart for director Mario Van Peebles. He went from 214 pounds, to a shocking 160 pounds.
How did he pull it off? The rapper committed to a three-hour-a-day treadmill walks for nine weeks and a liquid diet.
“I was starving.” Now he’s back on tour, and eating whatever he wants! “I’ve been eating. I’ll be back in shape in no time”
The movie role is inspired by a friend of his who died of cancer.
Looking buffer than ever, 50 Cent is gearing up to launch his newest men’s fragrance, Power by Fifty Cent — and he’s giving People readers an exclusive sneak peek at the ultra-sexy new campaign.
“For me, power isn’t just something you learn on the street or in the boardroom — it’s a way of life,” says the rags-to-riches multiplatinum star.
So just what does Power smell like? The masculine fragrance mixes notes like lemon leaves, black pepper, coriander and nutmeg—which all adds up, according to 50, to a whiff of success. “I really wanted to bottle up the rush it gives you so my fans can make it a part of their lifestyle,” he explains in a release.
Power by Fifty Cent launches exclusively at Macy’s Nov. 5, with prices ranging from $50.50 (for a 1.7 oz. eau de toilette) to $68.50 (for a two-piece gift set of eau de toilette and after shave.)
