50 Cent, Chelsea Handler refuel romance rumour

London: They have denied rumours of a blossoming romance but Chelsea Handler and 50 Cent seem to be coming closer to admitting their relationship, after he made an appearance on her talk show last night.

The rapper, real name Curtis James Jackson, showed up during a skit where Handler`s staff were having a book club meeting about his autobiography.

When the rapper suddenly appeared, comedian Heather McDonald jokingly dropped to the floor when it looked like the he was pulling out a gun.

But it was just a copy of his book he whipped out, asking if he could join the book club.

The guest appearance is sure to fuel further speculation about the relationship between the TV host and the rapper, who are both 35-years-old, reported a website.

Rumours of the two dating have been circulating for several weeks after they were spotted getting cosy at The Blue Nile Jazz Club in New Orleans at the beginning of October.

The pair met in November 2009 when he appeared in her chat show, `Chelsea Lately`.

According to reports, the rapper left Handler a voice mail message asking her out, after his appearance on the show.
