Handler said Diddy’s frequent tardiness to events turns her off.
“Rappers are great interviews because they just don’t really care and they are willing to say anything,” Handler said in an interview. “And I love that because that’s kind of how I am. They all hit on me. I love Pharrell and thought he was really sweet; Nelly, too…P. Diddy was the only one I was like, ‘Get away from me.’ He’s so late all the time–maybe he won’t show up in the Hamptons until summer is over.” (Hamptons Magazine)
Last December, Handler publicly called out Diddy for showing up late to a taping of “Chelsea Lately”.
“It’s interesting that you’ve been waiting to get here because I’ve been waiting for you for a f*cking hour,” Handler told Diddy, who sat next to his Dirty Money groupmates, Kaleenaand Dawn. “Thank-you ladies, by the way, for being on time. We appreciate it. And you, girlfriend, need to work your sh*t out.” (“Chelsea Lately”)
Diddy responded to Handler by offering her compliments and making sexual advances.
First, he came on to Chelsea — offering himself up and complimenting her dress — and then, when she called him “girl”, making an even steeper offer. “I’m not feeling this girl thing,” he slurred, “I will pull out my schlong right now!” Handler handled it well, saying she felt that she gave him a look of fear when he was late — and would like to do it again. Diddy then referenced “all the other black men that’s trying to meet you,” most likely a nod to Handler’s rumored relationship with rapper 50 Cent. (Huffington Post)
Earlier this month, Handler came clean on briefly dating rap star 50 Cent.
“We dated, very casually,” Chelsea told television host Piers Morgan. “He was, nothing happened, you know, he’s a very sweet, nice guy, but obviously, I was just sampling, kind of, the atmosphere and seeing what was out there. And I’m satiated. He’s fun. He’s a great guy. [He’s not what I expected], not at all. He’s the complete antithesis of what you would imagine. He’s a sweetheart, he’s sweet, funny, he’s got a great sense of humor. I don’t really like gifts from rappers in general since I’m not a hooker. I don’t like when men buy me ridiculous gifts especially when I don’t know them well. I can buy my own gifts.” (“Piers Morgan”)
