Rumor Mill: Chelsea Handler dating 50 Cent?

In what could be described as the oddest pairing since the alleged Eminem/Kim Basinger fling, reports that Chelsea Handler and 50 Cent (aka Curtis Jackson) were spotted getting "hot and heavy" at a New Orleans club Sunday night. According to the New York Daily News, the rapper and the comedian have been flirting for months, ever since 50 made an appearance on her E! show "Chelsea Lately." The rapper/actor "left [Handler] a flirtatious voicemail after appearing on her show, and even reportedly sent her flowers."

And, again proving wrong John Mayer's contention that important things don't happen on Twitter, the social networking site reportedly played a part in their courtship. In August, 50 tweeted "I think @chelseahandler is beautiful I wanta see what that dog lookin at on her page."

Have to wonder what the term "dating" means in the context of Chelsea Handler.

I'm sure that it's purely platonic.

Chelsea Handler's a comedienne. It's not highly news worthy, but she is cougaresque hot, so it's noteworthy that she's getting together with 50 Cent, at least in tabloid news (which happens to be part of her business). I'm not surprised she's looking for a black dude. If only I had money, lol. It's probably not platonic, but I doubt that it's "serious". She's a life-long bachelorette kind of woman, I think. Meh.

"Cougaresque?" Isn't she 35?

I'll believe she's dating 50 Cent when she gets arrested in 50's next shooting incident.
