After recently deading the rumor mill about being involved in a romantic relationship with 50 Cent, comedian Chelsea Handler has further clarified where the gossip originated.
According to Handler, an intimate photo of her and 50 was misleading to viewers.
“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 week, Handler also addressed the situation on her night show.
The topic of Handler and Fiddy’s romance popped up again on Tuesday on Handler’s late-night talk show, “Chelsea Lately,” when a guest panelist told the host, “Thank you for banging 50 Cent.” Handler shook her head and laughed as the guest, comedian Jo Koy, proceeded to quote a lyric from a 50 Cent song: “Have a baby by me, baby, be a millionaire.” “I’m not banging … I’m not banging,” Handler responded. “He wasn’t singing to me,” she added. “He was singing and I saw it…When I have something to say, I will say it on this show…There’s nothing to talk about. Seriously.” When another panelist suggested that perhaps Handler should start dating Tone Loc instead, the host took the opportunity to diss Fiddy. “I think 50 Cent’s worse than Tone Loc,” she said.

Last week, 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)
