Fiddy finally 'fesses up to hooking up with Chelsea Handler! OK, well, not hooking up.

During a break from shooting a music video with Bobby V50 Cent admits excluively to E! News that while he and the Chelsea Lately host did get together in New Orleans, romance did not play a part.

"We were actually just talking about a film project," the rapper reveals to E! News. "I think she's amazing."

So amazing, apparently, that he didn't just send her some flowers following her VMAs hosting gig, but a whole room full of 'em.

Because, you know, that's just what friends do.  

Anyway, whether they are dating or not, at least they're doing a good job at keeping their stories straight.

Meanwhile, if and when their aforementioned project ever takes off, 50 Cent will be making time with another blonde.

He and Meg Ryan have just signed on to join John Lithgow and Kat Dennings in Lives of the Saints, an ensemble film which, according to the Hollywood Reporter, is "about a group of Angelinos seeking redemption for past mistakes."

Shooting is scheduled to begin Nov. 13.
