Sexy actress VIVICA A. Fox and her new rapper boyfriend 50 Cent have teamed up for a racy magazine shoot - while still maintaining they're "just really good friends".

Kill Bill beauty Fox, 39, and the 27-year-old hip-hop superstar, real name CURTIS JACKSON, have been romantically linked since the summer (03) - maKing appearances together at the MTV Video Music Awards and the WORLD MUSIC AWARDS, with the IN DA CLUB rapper showering the actress with extravagant jewels.

And now Vivica has stripped down to lingerie to pose with the topless bullet-scarred chart-topper in the pages of the latest edition of America's KING magazine.

But Vivica insists, "We're just really good friends, and that's going to be my comment about that. He admires my professionalism, and that I represent class, but still keep it ghetto. I'm that ghetto, classy chick and that's what makes him admire me."

"He's a really nice guy, and I had a great time at the VMAs. That's for damn sure."
