Why Did Chelsea Handler Dump 50 Cent?

by at .

Visiting Howard Stern's show Monday, Chelsea Handler was surprisingly (or maybe not that surprisingly) candid about her ill-fated relationship with 50 Cent.

She wasted no time confirming that this rumored couple was in fact a couple, and revealing what her friends thought and why they ultimately split up.

"He's actually a lot different than you would think," she said. "He's really sweet. I thought it was kind of amusing that I would even be with 50 Cent."

50 Cent and Chelsea Handler

"My friends all loved him, my friends fell in love with him," she said, including Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston, who were as surprised as us.

"They loved that I was dating him. They were like, 'Chelsea, come on.' They were both laughing really hard at it - everyone was - but they loved him."

So what went wrong? "We dated for a couple months and then we had a falling out," she said. "One of his ex-girlfriends was coming onto my show."

She did not say who, but that was apparently the end of it. Why?

According to Handler, Fiddy wanted to give her a heads up that his ex still had feelings for him, but Chelsea had other things - her job - on her mind.

"I was like, at my job," she said. "It was just so juvenile, I couldn't get past that. I was at work. I hung up and I've never spoken to him again."

But that's not to say there are any hard feelings, at least not on her part: "I do think he's a really nice guy and I think he's smart in a certain way."

Considering it's Chelsea Handler we're talking about, that's as nice of a compliment as anyone, let alone an ex of hers, could possibly expect.

We just hope 50 doesn't read this story. He's already despondent of late, we don't need him firing off anymore introspective suicidal-sounding tweets.
