Why 50 Cent Named His Dog Oprah

Originally posted 06/13/2012 09:00AM

50 Cent and Oprah Winfrey haven't always had an easy relationship, especially since the rapper accused the media mogul of catering to "old white women" in 2006. But the pair sat down to discuss their differences for the latest installment of Oprah's Next Chapter, where Winfrey went after the hip-hop star about a peculiar slight.

"Let me ask you, I heard you have a dog named Oprah," she says in the episode, airing Sunday at 9 p.m. on the OWN Network. "I consider that a compliment, whether you meant it to be one or not."

While 50 Cent at first deflects her inquiries, saying, "I was just looking for real cute names for pets," and admitting he also has a cat named Gayle, he later reveals the reasons behind naming his schnauzer after the star.

Which Music Superstar Escorted Floyd Mayweather to the Ring?

Who knew Justin Bieber and boxing were such a winning combination?

The pop star, 18, not only attended Floyd Mayweather's title fight at the Las Vegas MGM Grand on Saturday, but Bieber also escorted the former Dancing with the Stars contestant into the ring while carrying two of the boxer's championship belts.

Bieber's appearance came as a surprise to those in the arena, though perhaps fans should have suspected something was up after the "Boyfriend" singer Tweeted earlier in the day, "cinco de mayo... #MayweatherCotto yeah @floydmayweather today is a BIG day."

But it wasn't until an interview with Piers Morgan on Tuesday night that Handler finally went on the record: "We dated, very casually."

Two men were arrested early Tuesday morning for allegedly breaking into 50 Cent's 52-room Connecticut mansion – one of whom was found in a closet drinking a bottle of wine he had taken from the home, the Hartford Courant reports.

Alexander Hernandez, 19, and Santos Padilla, 21, were apprehended after security guards called police about a suspicious car in the driveway. Police said the pair had scaled a fence and entered through an unlocked door.

Could he be more than a cuddle buddy?

Chelsea Handler gave her followers an intimate look at her relationship with 50 Cent in a Twitter post Monday, saying, "I don't know why anyone thinks I would ever date a rapper."

Though the Chelsea Lately host, 35, once said there was "nothing to report yet" on her alleged romance with the rapper (real name Curtis Jackson), also 35, Handler now has something to show for it in the form of a PDA-filled photo of the duo snuggled up and kissing in bed.
