G-Unit leader 50 Cent has ended his silence on being caught having a secret date with late night talk show host Chelsea Handler earlier this month.
According to 50, their hook-up was strictly business-related.
Fiddy finally ‘fesses up to hooking up with Chelsea Handler! OK, well, not hooking up. During a break from shooting a music video with Bobby V, 50 Cent admits excluively to E! News that while he and the Chelsea Lately host did get together in New Orleans, romance did not play a part. “We were actually just talking about a film project,” the rapper reveals to E! News. “I think she’s amazing.” So amazing, apparently, that he didn’t just send her some flowers following her VMAs hosting gig, but a whole room full of ‘em. Because, you know, that’s just what friends do. Anyway, whether they are dating or not, at least they’re doing a good job at keeping their stories straight. (E! Online)
Last week, Handler addressed being romantically linked to 50.
“I was with a bunch of friends in New Orleans, and he was one of the friends that was there. I was there for a show. Of course we were the only ones in the picture when there were 20 of us there. It made it look like there was something romantic happening…[We have] nothing romantic. Although I think he’s working on something. Every rapper who has been on the show is working on something with me. At some point I’m going to have to give in.” (Baltimore Sun)
Earlier this month, Handler briefly discussed their date on Twitter.
“Everyone, calm down. I met with mr. Cent about a potential project. There’s nothing to report yet, ill let you know if there is.,” Handler tweeted Wednesday (October 6). (Chelsea Handler’s Twitter)
A day prior, 50 Cent was questioned about his relationship with Handler by paparazzi.
With everyone talking about his new rumored romance, 50 Centtook refuge where everyone goes to avoid the spotlight — Mr. Chow in Bev Hills — and then dropped a huge clue about Chelsea Handler. As TMZ first reported, the two got reeeeeally up close and personal at a bar in New Orleans this weekend — but yesterday, when photogs asked about the hook-up, dude cracked a huge, mysterious smile. They’re totally together, right?? (TMZ)
