Chelsea Handler and 50 Cent were spotted at a New Orleans bar last weekend, which quickly got everyone wondering if there was something romantic going on between the funny lady and the rapper. So, are they dating? Handler has now weighed in on those rumors in a new Twitter post.
“Everyone, calm down,” the comedian tweeted on Wednesday night. “I met with Mr. Cent about a potential project. There’s nothing to report yet, I’ll let you know if there is.”
As for Fiddy, well, he kept pretty mum when paparazzi cameras caught up to him this week outside of Mr. Chow in Beverly Hills. When asked about the alleged date his only comment was a smile and a little belly laugh.
As for why 50 Cent was in the Los Angeles area, the rap artist tweeted Wednesday that he was “on my way to LA for a film meeting,” and included a photo of himself getting on a plane.
Photos of 50 and Chelsea chatting at New Orleans’ Blue Nile jazz bar were posted on TMZ on Monday (October 4). In addition to spending face time with Handler, the rapper also took the stage and did a little freestyle for the crowd.
While the two may be playing coy, at least one source claims that their relationship involves more than business. “It’s been going on a while,” the source explained to UsMagazine.com. “It’s more of a hookup thing — whenever they are in the same town.”
Handler’s rep, meanwhile, has chosen to take the high road on the rumors, saying, “She saves all her comments for her own show.”
Handler has always been quick to quip about her love of rappers. When she sat down with MTV News last month to dish about her role as this year’s VMA host, she very jokingly named off hip-hop artists she wouldn’t mind having romantic relations with, although 50 notably didn’t make the list.
“I’ll probably have sex with [Eminem] after the show is over. Probably. I don’t see why I wouldn’t,” she kidded. “I like Swizz Beatz, just because I would like to yell out in bed, ’Swizz Beatz! Keep it coming!’ Not Kanye. Not if he’s going to wear those glasses. Anybody, really. I’m fair game. It’s not like I’m that picky. You’ve seen the guys I’ve dated.”
