Chelsea Handler DENIES Dating 50 Cent

Chelsea Handler has taken to Twitter to shoot down reports that she is dating 50 Cent.

"Everyone, calm down. I met with mr. Cent about a potential project. There's nothing to report yet, ill let you know if there is," she wrote Wednesday night.

Chelsea and 50 were recently snapped getting close at a jazz bar in New Orleans.

"It's been going on awhile," a source tells Us Weekly. "It's more of a hookup thing -- whenever they are in the same town."

Chelsea broke up with Animal Planet star Dave Salmoni about a month ago.
