Dating 50 Cent was funny, says Handler

Los Angeles: American TV star Chelsea Handler says it was funny to date rapper 50 Cent.

The 36-year-old, who was romantically involved with 50 Cent last year, insists the rapper is very different from his on-stage persona.

"He`s actually a lot different than you would think. He`s really sweet. I thought it was kind of amusing that I would even be with 50 Cent; I thought it was funny," quoted Handler as saying.

"My friends all loved him, my friends fell in love with him. [Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon] loved that I was dating him. They were like, `Chelsea, come on.` They were both laughing really hard at it...I mean, everyone was," she added.
