Comedian Chelsea Handler has finally admitted to her whirlwind romance with rapper 50 Cent, putting the rumors to rest. Handler was first linked to 50 Cent last October when they were photographed enjoying a night out together, but they vehemently dismissed talks of a budding romance. At one point, Handler tweeted, “I don't know why anyone thinks I would ever date a rapper,” while posting a photo of the two in bed.

50 Cent’s comments fuelled the rumors. “Chelsea is confident. I think confidence is the sexiest thing about a person," he told Vibe. "I'm not sure you'll look at her and actually want to jump over the table and fuck her, but you might.”

Handler opened up about the rapper. “He's the complete antithesis of what you would imagine," she told Piers Morgan. "Sweet, funny, a great sense of humor.” Handler said the relationship was simply her way of testing the waters. “I was sampling, kind of, the atmosphere, seeing what was out there, and I was satiated,” she said.

Handler is said to have dumped the rapper late last year, and insiders said he tried to win her back with gifts, but Handler returned them with a note that said: “I can buy my own gifts.”

The comedian is also addressing rumors that she has been dating Uma Thurman's ex, hotelier Andre Balazs, for the last four months. “I'm seeing someone now. I feel like I talk about my love life [too much],” she said.

When Morgan asked if he was a hotelier, she replied, “That sounds familiar actually! I have spent so much time exposing my personal life to everybody that I'm finally in a situation where I feel like it's disrespectful to another person… We all know who I'm dating!”
