Funny late-night talk-show host and comedian, Chelsea Handler, often finds herself flirting with superstar guests who make appearances on her hit E! Show, “Chelsea Lately.” She is known to have the biggest fascination with rap artists that dare step foot on her stage.
Chelsea rapper 50 Cent have been linked together in the past, and earlier this week Chelsea revealed to Howard Stern why she and the “Get Rich or Die Tryin’” rapper are no longer on speaking terms.
Although Chelsea admits that she and 50 Cent dated for a couple of months, the relationship ended over a silly phone call that focused on his R&B ex-girlfriend, Ciara.
“So you’re telling me that this girl wants to get back together with you, but she’s upset that you’re dating me?” Chelsea said to Howard, recounting her conversation with 50.
Coincidentally, the G-Unit founder decided to give Chelsea this information right before Ciara was set to make an appearance on her show. He wanted to make a 3-way call to prove to Chelsea how things were. Chelsea fired back stating, “Curtis (she called him by his first name), honestly, this is eighth grade…” At the end of the phone call, Chelsea said some words to 50 Cent that were very offensive and then she hung up on him.
That was the end of their romance.
Although things didn’t end smoothly, Chelsea told Howard that 50 is a very nice guy who treated her well. He would call the office often and would even send a ridiculous amount of flowers to the her.
According to Chelsea, there romance was a classic case of “opposites attract.” She was intrigued that he was completely different from her. Contrary to his thuggish rap persona, he didn’t smoke nor drink, and she thought that was “borderline amazing.”
Although the star of the new NBC sitcom, “Are you there Chelsea?” explained that her family and friends absolutely adored the hip-hop entrepreneur, she knew it wouldn’t last.
