Late night talkshow host Chelsea Handler has finally leaked out more details surrounding her secret brief romance with rap star 50 Cent last year and how R&B singer Ciara unknowingly had a role in their break-up.
Handler admitted she lashed out at Fif for claiming Ciara's alleged feelings toward him would hurt their romance.
"[I asked him] 'You're telling me this girl wants to get back together with you but she's upset that you're dating me, is that what you're saying,'" Handler told radio host Howard Stern recalling her questioning 50 about Ciara appearing on her talk show. "And he's like, 'Yeah, yeah. When she comes, just know that's what she's after.' Whatever I called him was probably the worst thing you could say to a black person, short of calling him the N-word. Not a black person, any person. I said you're like a street person, basically, something along the lines of being a gangster. It was really, really offensive and I hung up and I've never spoken to him again." ("The Howard Stern Show")
A couple weeks ago, Chicago rapper Common appeared on "Chelsea Lately" and questioned Handler about her interest in dating rappers.
Hip-hop artist Common stopped by "Chelsea Lately" (Weeknights., 11PM ET on E!) on Tuesday night, and as often happens on that show, the talk turned to dating. First, host Chelsea Handler wanted to know which physical attributes attract Common to a woman. He denied being attracted to only one specific feature, saying "I like all shapes of women, beautiful women." Then Common had a question for Chelsea, who dated rapper 50 Cent last year. "Do you like black guys?" he asked. To which she quipped, "It depends. There's a time of year in which I'm very interested in black men. ... It happens to be right around the holidays."

In August, Handler confessed to having a sexual relationship with 50.
"We were friends. We're not friends really anymore. I haven't spoken to him in a while... We had sex," Handler revealed. "It was fun. I've told other people. Don't feel special. [You feel special?] Well, I'm not gonna lie...I'm not interested in motherhood at all." (Esquire)
Past reports suggested 50's romance with her reportedly forced Ciara to break things off with the rapper.
It won't be a lonely Valentine's Day for Ciara this year. The 25-year-old singer has taken a page out of pal Kim Kardashian's playbook and is dating a new NBA baller beau. So who's the guy? And what does E! funnygal Chelsea Handler have to do with the budding romance? Ciara has recently begun seeing 28-year-old New York Knicks star Amar'e Stoudemire. "They're keeping it on the DL, but they are dating," a source tells us of the couple, who just recently took their friendship to the next level about a month ago. According to our source, Ciara, who has been dating rapper 50 Cent on and off for much of last year, officially cut off contact with the hip-hop star when he began hanging out with Handler. "When that Chelsea stuff started, she pulled away from him," adds the source. (E! Online)
