Chelsea Handler Denies Dating 50 Cent

50 Cent and Chelsea Handler were photographed together at a jazz club in New Orleans over the weekend, sparking rumors that the two were dating, but it looks like the joke’s on us. The comedienne is letting inquiring minds know that she and 50 are not an item—at least yet.

“Everyone, calm down. I met with mr. Cent about a potential project,” tweeted the host of E!’s “Chelsea Lately.” “There’s nothing to report yet, ill let you know if there is.”

When TMZ caught up with 50 at Mr. Chow in Beverly Hills earlier this week, the usually outspoken rapper remained mum, only smiling when asked by a cameraman whether he was dating the comedienne.

The pair flirted with each other when he appeared on her talk show in December 2009. “You’re very, very cute, you know this, right?” Chelsea told him, to which he replied, “Thank you, do you have a boyfriend? This would be great, like I deserve you.”
