Well apparently that’s what 50 Cent told Chelsea Handler, and that lead to the couple’s eventual break-up. Chelsea did an interview with Allhiphop.com and came clean about her brief fling with the “Candyshop” rapper. Read highlights from the interview below.
Handler recalls of their first attempts to meet: “I was going to Nashville I think to do a show; I was on tour for my last book. I said, ‘I’m going to Nashville.’ He said, ‘I was in L.A, and I was trying to get a hold of you, but I’m in New York now.’
“I told him, ‘I’m going to Nashville this weekend,’ and he said ‘Can I meet you there?’ I was like, ‘Yeah, why not?’ So he came to Nashville to my show. Then, we had sex.”
“Then, he moved to LA because he was tape recording so we kind of saw each other for a few of months. We went out. We dated. We had sex. My friends all loved him,” she added.
Chelsea also revealed that the romance turned sour when Fiddy’s ex-girlfriend Ciara became suspicious of the two and started blowing up his phone.
“Right before Anguilla, Ciara – that’s her name! – was coming on the show, and he called me to tell me something about her like she still calls him all the time, and she still tells him that she loves him or something. And I’m at my job, and I go ‘Curtis, honestly this is like eighth grade s**t. Why are you telling me this?’”
“This girl is coming on the show tomorrow, and now I have to look at her and think you guys have some weird thing going on or had going on. It was so juvenile. I’m at my work and I work my a** off all the time, and I have million different things and even though it’s not like important work, I am working hard. I’m doing sh*t.
“He said, ‘I want you to hear this conversation’ and he was like calling someone like a 3-way phone call. I go, ‘So you’re telling me this girl wants to get back together with you, but she’s upset that you’re dating me, is that what you’re saying?”
“He’s like, ‘Yeah, so I just want you to know when she comes.’”
The 37-year-old host said that once she realized 50 was trying to play the two of them against each other, she stopped contacting him.
