Comedienne, actress and host Chelsea Handler is finally spilling the juice on her relationship with rapper 50 Cent. Rumors have swirled about the alleged romance but Chelsea has finally set the record straight with shock jock Howard Stern. She confirmed on Stern’s show on Monday that the two dated for “a couple of months” and that the Queens rapper met her family and was going to accompany them on a Christmas vacation in Anguilla.
The cozy times were derailed when 50’s ex-girlfriend, singer Ciara (who Chelsea mispronounces as “Siara” during the interview) came back into the picture. Ciara was slated to appear on “Chelsea Lately” and 50 Cent made it known that his ex still had feelings for him and called him constantly to reconcile. He even tried to finagle a three-way call to prove this to Chelsea at which point she responded, “Curtis, honestly this is like 8th grade.” Chelsea went in on a tirade against her boo and threw in some derogatory terms at him for good measure (Handler denies the N-word was used). The two haven’t spoken since. Guess we won’t see a Handler/Cent wedding registry any time soon.
50 has been curiously mum about Handler’s recent digs. The rapper has been focusing professionally on music and other ventures. He recently announced plans to drop two albums in a row. 50 told Forbes that “This time I’m not sure if I’ll tour the world like I did on my last project, ’cause it makes my album cycle two years long.” “I think I’d like to launch this record and come right back and launch another record following it.” Earlier in the year, he visited CES to unveil his brand new SMS Sync by 50 and Street by 50 headphones. The Sync by 50 retail for $399.95, and the Street by 50 are priced at $299.95.
