Chelsea Handler says 50 Cent is a ''sweetheart''.

The 38-year-old chat show host briefly dated the rapper, 37, in 2010 and although the relationship wasn't serious, Chelsea still has fond memories of their time together.

She said: ''It wasn't the most serious relationship. He came on my show and he sent me flowers. And I was like, 'I'm not gonna date somebody whose name is a number.'''

However, Chelsea says she is completely in love with 56-year-old hotelier ANDRE BALAZS, her boyfriend of two years, although she admitted having a long distance relationship is tough as he constantly travels the world for work.

Speaking on an episode of 'Oprah's Next Chapter', she said: ''I've met my match. We couldn't be more opposite. I bring out the stupidity in him probably.

''We were talking about living our lives together, my boyfriend and I. We've broken up a couple of times and gotten back together, and we're trying to figure out how to live a life together.

''It's just so hard and it's just so taxing. But when you really want to be with someone, you can make that work, but you don't want it to be uneven. If I'm going to London for you for a week for business, and having to go out to dinner and drinks and be funny and engaging, then you better hit me back.

''I don't really have any value on marriage. I guess it would be fun to do just for the sake of it once. I don't want children ... I don't ever feel that I want one. My dogs are enough. My dog is the best and I mean, my dog can't talk and that's kind of what I was looking for in a companion.''
