LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- She may be a “shorty,” but there’s no new romance “In Da Club” for Chelsea Handler! The comedienne has taken to Twitter to combat rumors of a possible new romance with rap artist 50 Cent.
“Everyone, calm down. I met with Mr. Cent about a potential project,” she Tweeted on Wednesday. “There’s nothing to report yet, ill [sic] let you know if there is.”
The “Chelsea Lately” host spoke out after TMZ posted a picture of the pair sitting close to each other at the Blue Nile jazz bar in New Orleans on Monday, claiming a “spy” told the site that Chelsea and 50 were “getting very hot and heavy with each other.”
The 35-year-old funny woman (who confirmed her breakup from long-time boyfriend Ted Harbert, CEO of Comcast Entertainment Group, via her late night show in January) has recently been linked to Animal Planet’s “Into the Pride” host, Dave Salmoni (who will be a guest on Access Hollywood Live on Friday, October 8! Check back at AccessHollywood.com to watch the interview, or check your local listings.).
“[Dave’s] not only good looking,” she told Jay Leno during an appearance on “The Tonight Show” in July. “He’s somebody who can protect you from a bear or lion.”
