Chelsea Handler made headlines with her stand-up routine when the jokes turned to Angelina Jolie, calling her a “homewrecker,” among other (unprintable) things.
Cheering Chels on from backstage at the Dec. 3 show was none other than rumored boy-toy, 50 Cent. The pair has been photographed together multiple times since October, fueling reports that they are an item.
For the latest ’bout of speculation surrounding the two, Chelsea can thank friend Heather McDonald, who’s also a writer and producer for “Chelsea Lately.” Heather tweeted a backstage shot of herself and the “Candy Shop” rapper in a suggestive pose. The caption reads: “Great show in Newark tonight but Chelsea should be worried because of this.”
Reports of any romance have been shot down several times by the comedienne, but just a few days before the Newark show, the E! late night hostess made an appearance on “The Tonight Show” for a few laughs with Jay Leno.
After referring to the rap star with an enunciated “Fifty,” Jay asks for clarification. “It’s Fiddy cent, isn’t it?”
Chelsea wastes no time on a response. “I don’t know, I call him Curtis when we’re having sex.”
After a few laughs and shakes of the head — that was a joke, people — she continues.
“He’s a friend of mine, his real name is Curtis. Curtis … well I don’t know, I should find out,” she kids. “It’s Curtis Cent, that’s his last name. That’s what I call him.”
Regardless of their friendship, relationship, or whatever else they’ve got going on, as long as the blonde ball-buster keeps us laughing, we’ll keep eating it up. Hey, maybe 50 has a hot friend for Chelsea’s new pal Jennifer Aniston?
