Rapper 50 Cent has fuelled rumours he's dating U.S. comedienne Chelsea Handler after refusing to confirm or deny the reports when confronted by paparazzi.
The In Da Club star sparked claims of the odd new romance when he was spotted getting cosy with Handler during a night out at a jazz bar in New Orleans, Louisiana at the weekend (02-03Oct10), just days after professing his love for her late night talk show Chelsea Lately.
Taking on his Twitter.com blog on 23 September (10), he wrote, "A yal (sic) know I love me some chelsea handler yal (sic) see her show tonight she is so funny to me."
And he failed to put an end to the speculation when he was quizzed by snappers as he headed to a restaurant in Beverly Hills, California on Tuesday (05Oct10) - when he cracked a big smile and remained silent instead of setting the record straight.
50 Cent was previously rumoured to be dating R&B singer Ciara, while Handler split from her long term lover, TV boss Ted Harbert, last year (09).
