No joke: Chelsea Handler and 50 Cent are dating, a source confirms to UsMagazine.com. The unexpected pair were photographed looking romantic at a New Orleans bar on Sunday. “It’s been going on awhile,” the source says of the comedienne and the rapper, both 35. “It’s more of a hookup thing — whenever they are in the same town.” 50 Cent’s rep had no comment. A rep for the Chelsea Lately host tells Us, “She saves all her comments for her own show.” (US Magazine)
