Are they or aren't they?

In response to recent reports that Chelsea Handler is dating 50 Cent, the Chelsea Lately host took to her Twitter page Wednesday night saying, "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."

But sources tell PEOPLE that the couple are indeed spending quality time together. "It's legit," says one source. "It's casual."

Speculation about the possible hookup started after Handler, 35, and the rapper (real name Curtis Jackson), also 35, were spotted getting close at the Blue Nile jazz bar in New Orleans last Sunday. The rapper also made a flirty appearance on Handler's show Chelsea Lately last December, sparking rumors that he’d asked Handler out on a date.
