NEW YORK (CBS) Are 50 Cent and Chelsea Handler an item?

The noted rapper and the "Chelsea Lately" host were spotted getting cozy at a New Orleans club, according to published reports.

TMZ posted a picture of the pair at the New Orleans nightspot appearing to be intimate and engaged in conversation, very close to one another.

The 35-year-old talk show host took to her Twitter account to deny claims of a potential romance. "Everyone, calm down," Handler tweeted. "I met with mr. Cent about a potential project. There's nothing to report yet, ill let you know if there is."

"Potential project" could mean anything from a creative production to another shot at love. 50 Cent so far has not spoke of their meet-up, but tweeted on Thursday that he was heading to Los Angeles "for a film meeting." That's the same city where Handler's talk show is taped. The two could potentially star in a film project together.
