The funny woman who has a late-night talk show sat down with the king of all media, Howard Stern, on his SiriusXM show on Monday and candidly discussed what happened between she and 50 Cent. Long story short—it was because of 50’s reaction to his ex-girl, Ciara, upcoming presence (at that time) on the Chelsea Lately show.
“…Ciara—that’s her name!—was coming on the show, and he called me to tell me something about her like she still calls him all the time, and she still tells him that she loves him or something. And I’m at my job, and I go “Curtis, honestly this is like eighth grade sh*t. Why are you telling me this? This girl is coming on the show tomorrow, and now I have to look at her and think you guys have some weird thing going on or had going on.” It was so juvenile.”
One to not ever muzzle her tongue, the comedienne takes us back to how the two met.
“This is how it started, he was on my show. I thought he was just adorable. Then, he started sending me flowers but ridiculous amounts of like 50 white roses, and it was like laughable. Then he started to call my office, and my assistant was like, “50 Cent is calling and I swear I think it is him.” And I’m like, “Oh, my God.” So I got on the phone, and he’s not like a grammatical genius and it’s kind of like silly. You should’ve seen some of the texts he used to send me. I’m like, “This is so stupid.” He said some silly line, but it was very cute and I was like, “He’s sweet. He’s not carrying a gun right now.”
Afterwards 50 would meet up at different locations where Chelsea had a book signing or performance. They linked up and he ended up moving to L.A.to finish up a tape recording, so the two were able to see more of each other.
“We went out. We dated. We had sex. My friends all loved him. My friends fell in love with him. They we’re like, “This huge gangster guy is like the sweetest.” So we dated for a couple months. And this is the best part, he was going to come with my family, because I was going to Anguilla, to go to Christmas vacation, and I go someplace every year with some of my family.”
50 never got a chance to make that family outing because Chelsea couldn’t get over his childish antics about his then-ex-girlfriend Ciara.
“I’m at my work and I work my ass off all the time…and he said, “I want you to hear this conversation” and he was like calling someone like a 3-way phone call. I go, “So you’re telling me this girl wants to get back together with you, but she’s upset that you’re dating me, is that what you’re saying?” He’s like, “Yeah, so I just want you to know when she comes.”
That was the end of the straw for her. She called him an uncouth word, but doesn’t remember what she called him.
“I think I called him the worst thing you could say to a black person short of calling him the N-word. I said something like you’re like a street person basically. Something along the lines of being a gangster, and it was really, really offensive and I hung up and I’ve never spoken to him again.”
