Chelsea Handler may have Tweeted a photo of herself, kissing 50 Cent in bed last year, but the two are definitely not a couple, according to the rapper-turned-actor.

When Access Hollywood’s Maria Menounos asked 50 to set the romance rumors straight over the weekend at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, he revealed the two are not involved.

“No, you could’ve asked Chelsea,” 50, aka Curtis Jackson, said, shooting down speculation. “She clearly made that visible for everyone to know.”

When probed again by Maria, who mentioned the late night host and the rapper’s closeness of late, 50 said, “We’re just good friends.”

So why has Chelsea been talking about the star so much lately?

”‘Cause we’re friends,” 50 explained. “That would be a good reason to talk about me.”

50 Cent is in Sundance to promote his new film company, Cheetah Vision Films.
