Comedian Chelsea Handler has once again addressed rumors that she is secretly dating rap star 50 Cent and divulged details about their recent date in New Orleans.
According to Handler, 50 was not singing lyrics to "Best Friend" toward her, despite the footage of the two spending time together at a nightclub that sparked the speculation.
The topic of Handler and Fiddy's romance popped up again on Tuesday on Handler's late-night talk show, "Chelsea Lately," when a guest panelist told the host, "Thank you for banging 50 Cent." Handler shook her head and laughed as the guest, comedian Jo Koy, proceeded to quote a lyric from a 50 Cent song: "Have a baby by me, baby, be a millionaire." "I'm not banging ... I'm not banging," Handler responded. "He wasn't singing to me," she added. "He was singing and I saw it...When I have something to say, I will say it on this show...There's nothing to talk about. Seriously." When another panelist suggested that perhaps Handler should start dating Tone Loc instead, the host took the opportunity to diss Fiddy. "I think 50 Cent's worse than Tone Loc," she said.

Last week, Handler briefly discussed their date on Twitter.
"Everyone, calm down. I met with mr. Cent about a potential project. There's nothing to report yet, ill let you know if there is.," Handler tweeted Wednesday (October 6). (Chelsea Handler's Twitter)

With everyone talking about his new rumored romance, 50 Centtook refuge where everyone goes to avoid the spotlight -- Mr. Chow in Bev Hills -- and then dropped a huge clue about Chelsea Handler. As TMZ first reported, the two got reeeeeally up close and personal at a bar in New Orleans this weekend -- but yesterday, when photogs asked about the hook-up, dude cracked a huge, mysterious smile. They're totally together, right?? (TMZ)
