It's confirmed. Ciara and rapper 50 Cent are very much in love according to a source within Ciara's camp. Despite his denials in the media - it's true.

The source of this information couldn't be closer to Ciara than Ciara herself. I have written much about fake celebrity relationships where celebrities are conveniently coupled up for the purpose of manipulating the media. But this is not a manufactured relationship. It's the real deal.

Why am I having such a difficult time believing it? Look at him... now look at her. Ciara seems to be too smart to end up with a simpleton like him. It's really not my place to judge a woman's choice in men, but this one defies all logic.

    Sandra you are hilarious.. Would you say the same thing about JD and Janet? She is Gorgeous but money makes almost any man look great! To each his own. I only allow God to judge. If that was the case I would say Monica shouldn't be with Rocko... hmmm.. she is too talented and smart and beautiful!

  • h0tsauce

    Get that Money Honey!!!!

  • Terry .W

    Oh Boy.! 50?....to each his and in this case her own!

  • cupcakes

    I think they may a cute couple...if its true!

  • cupcakes

    I meant "MAKE"

  • Bubbles

    50 is not cute. He is way too old for Ciara. He seems like the controlling abusive Mr Wendy Williams type.
    BUT
    He is by no means a simpleton. Dude is one of the smartest business people in the music industry. You can't take that away from him.

    That being said, good luck Ciara lol

  • brwnsugga4you

    good. another rumor we can lay to rest officially...ashley could take a few tips from ciara. i'm sure that lil dude from one chance aint buying cars. step your game up boo-boo. why u trying to bash bow-wow...

  • Maxdan

    I believe that we see certain ppl in the industry portray a certain image and we put them in a box. 50 Cent may be hardcore and "Mr. Shot Up" but he may be really sweet, sensitive and lay it down the right way. Please believe those OLDER men know what they're doing and ain;t shy. Ciara has a good head on her shoulders and isn't all Miss. Perfect
    It was funny on ANTM how he pushed that girl in the pool. It seems like if you're a dummy or a hoe he will treat you as such. If you have a cool swag and about your biz he will respect you and do right. I bet Vivica Fox is mad...

    THE WORLD MAY NEVER KNOW

  • pinkvirgo

    I don't understand why ppl trip so much on age differences.We don't know him he may be the perfect gentleman.

  • prynsexxx

    Everybody trying to be the "IT" couple.

    Jay and Bey said fuk it! Then everybody else slowly but surely are following suit.

    Usher and Tameka just went all out and got "murried".

    I don't think too many couples are ready to jump on that "tour bus" yet.

    Congrats to them both. I hope it lasts.

    Honestly I do.

  • kenyanhottie

    LOL@Maxdan. You know that's true about Vivica. I must say though, 50 seems to hook up with beautiful 'chicks'.

  • http://www.myspace.com/mzmekpage Tmekio

    I'm LOVING them together...

    I knew Ciara was too much for Bow Wow's little azz to handle. Don't let her 'innocent' look fool you.

    When I look at her, I see 'FREAK" written all over her..

    But she definately can handle 50....

  • Krysi – yes the same one

    Honestly I think 50 looks like a sucker for love, it just takes a certain type of woman to expose his a**! I'm sure Ciara has him wrapped around her finger in a good way though. He may be hard looking on the outside, but he's probably soft as COTTON when his nose is open, if ya know what i mean.

    If he treats her right, good for her....I would rather her be with 50 than Bow Wows lame a**.

    ============================================================

    I brought up the age difference because if I'm not mistaken he is almost 40. A three to five year age gap isn't much but 10 years and more is excessive. But I guess people are different and maturity is not necessarily about age...

  • http://www.myspace.com/hune916 HunE916

    50 Cent was born July 6, 1975. Ciara was born October 25, 1985. They are 10 years apart in age. It's not that serious. Men mature slower anyway, so they're about the same age.

  • jadecool

    They have been dating for a while not, a good few months, the rumours started over a year ago. They are keeping it all private which is nice im so sick of people hamming it up with their parenters so Im glad that these two just be together without putting it on ok magazine.

    She giggles whenever she is mentioned and he grins like the cat got the cream so they are obviously in love.

  • http://www.myspace.com/hune916 HunE916

    Uh, last time I checked, it's kina hard to be a simpleton with over $50 million in the bank.

  • jadecool

    Tmekio I agree she has got 50 cent mr pimp loved up, cici is putting it down for sure. Look at the way she dances she probablly goes on for hours lol! Plus Im sure there isnt anything he aint been teaching her

    at least she doesn't have two babies by him! ok, don't kick me off the blog sandra!

  • rell23

    HAHAHAHA SANDRA UR A HATER...GOOD FOR THEM..I HOPE IT LASTS FOREVER..THIS IS THE PERFECT WOMEN TO GET 50, SWEET, INTELLIGENT, SPECIAL..I MEAN SHE HAS IT ALL...IT WILL KEEP HIM OUT OF TROUBLE:)

  • FlyGemini

    Personally I think 50 is probably a very good boyfriend. I think people get caught up in his image, but I've read and seen his interviews and he seems very intelligent. I think being in that business would make anyone seem angry.

    ----------------------------------

    I agree if you look at all his videos he is staying away from the hoes while the rest of gunit are all over them. 50 clearly sprung. He bought her a phantom too apparently, thats big money to be dropping on your girl. She may be wifey soon, lol.

  • The Divine Ms. K

    Wow, how shallow can you be "look at her and look at him." Since when did how someone look or the image they put out there have anything to do with how they are with their partners?

    If they are happy, let them be happy. Quit looking for something to tear them apart - WE don't have to understand anything that goes on in their relationships. Sheesh, Sandra! :)

  • http://stylerazzi.blogspot.com stylerazzi

    I think, at the end of the day, 50 Cent is a genius!!!! He went from a broke rapper with "How To Rob" back in 1999 to a multi-millionaire in less than 10 years!!!! If anything, Ciara needs to stay close by his side and learn his business hustle (as far as making yourself into a brand and not just a name). If they are in love, good for them. If it took a chick in her early 20's to calm this man down (when Vivica, Megan and Victoria R couldn't do it) then great. He is so much more of a man- physically- than Bow Wow.

    YOU ARE CERTIFIED "JOKIE" JUST BECAUSE ITS NOT YOUR FAVORITE ATL COUPLE...GOOD GIRL/BAD BOY YOU HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY ON THE SLICK SIDE I LAUGH AT YOU NOT WITH YOU SOMETIMES!!!!

  • Mia

    She's just another demeaning rap song waiting to happen.

  • http://www.myspace.com/birdshu Bird

    50 gets on my very last nerve with all his beefing to sell records, stupid a$$ statements and the overall violence in his music, but other than that you can't say too much about him. You rarely ever see him clubbing and from what I've heard he doesn't drink or do drugs. People fault him for never going to the hood, but that is a sign of growth as well. 50 has said that Vivica constantly talking to the media about them is what stopped him from dating her. It looks like him and Ciara have figured out how to deal with that media thing. I think she could do a lot worse. I think Bow Wow was a lot worse.

  • tdl74767

    To Maxdan........There's alot of celebrities that try to act a certain way and behind closed doors its something totally different.

  • http://www.smokiesays.blogspot.com/ Smokie

    I think Ciara is smart enough to match with 50. She seems like she'd give him what he needs and vice versa. I just hope she stays the strong chic she is. He'll respect that.

    I think you hit the nail on the head. That describes how most Cancers (50 is one) respond to most people. If we don't respect you, we will ridicule you. Can't help it.

  • jadecool

    why should he stay in the hood when he has millions? The people who say im in the hood are really in the hood cause they can't afford to get out the hood.

    -----------

    Oh I agree, some people are like she shouldn't be with him but she is grown and wise enough to choose who she dates. He got a good one there, she is lovely. Im sure she handles her shit though, I don't think she would put up with any of his bullshit. I remember chingy saying that they went out on a date before she was famous and she told the nigga straight up you aint getting no cutti from me. Shes probablly the first girl he had to fight I guess you can say to get for a long time.

  • Hotstuff

    Sweetie's like her soften up goonies like him...Opposites attract and this is a classic case of it or another good girl liking a bad guy

  • http://notenoughrealmen.blogspot.com 2thick4u

    What does age has to do witht his situation?

    She is a grown woman that makes adult decisions.

    They make a cute ciuple....especially since he had her all naked and hugging him on her video...I knew he was hitting that ass!!!

    As long as she don't touch Nelly...she could be fucking my daddy...let me stop!!!

  • http://notenoughrealmen.blogspot.com 2thick4u

  • jadecool

    2thick4u she aint wanting nelly lol, thats some mto shit they just homies, She cool with ashanti she went to her private birthday party.

    The can't leave em alone video was fucking fire. They can't expect people to watch that and be like oh yeah they just did a track together, 50 was snecking in kisses on her neck and she kept pulling him closer to her the whole time. They was loved up

  • Pingback: Straight from the “A” ~ Big Ups…to all my HATERS!()

  • JustSaying

    Well if they are sweet with each other it is fine with me. 50 is handsome/sexy in a ugly kind of way. I bet he really is a sweet person. It is something about him that attracts me to him. So I have to say CiCi I feel you dating him.

  • Minnie

    Just send me an invitation for the marriage I´ll be there Cici!
    Great news 50 definitely needs some love! Leave Fat Joe alone!

  • bloggergirlz

    i'm happy for them...i never understand why she dated lil dude anyway...50 is the type of man she needs...i bet he truly loves and respects her...i can only imagine how their "sessions" are...people might get tired of his mouth or poke fun at his looks, but his body is bananas!

  • omina-homina

    his face looks paralyzed.

  • MzDetermined

    Ciara wants a thug in her life... Bow wow wasn't that so she chose fitty.

  • MzDetermined

    LMAO at #44...You wrong!

  • http://www.findentertainmentnow.com miesha@FindEntertainmentNow.com

    stop playin'! for real? well i agree with Maxdan above. BUT the only thing i don't like is that 50 talks maaaaaaaaaaaaaad trash about everrrrrrrrrrrrrrrybody and it's so little. oh and CC broke up with bow wow cuz he had stippers in one of his rooms so what the hell CC...50's got a custom made swivel seat for strippers right in his car son! oh well...

  • ms.peaches

    Well I guess if it's true them the best to them, I know he may look like he is abusive by his size but I highly doubt it cause for one he has to much to lose if he was ever charged with that & two remember he got a restraining order on Viv cause her ass was crazy(lol) I think they fit I always heard those city boys like the country girls so good luck!! all I want to know is that really her that was pictured inside of his CD with her ass hanging out while he was holding her???

  • Bubbles

    @Ms Peaches

    He said it wasn't her in his album pics but that was a crazy rumor too lol

  • Tangela

    I just watched the ANTM clip that many of you were alluding to, and I must say it was quite funny. As for those two being a couple and keeping it under wraps for so long--KUDOS!!! A relationship is hard to maintain in private and even more difficult to keep in public.

  • mrsdawn

    I think this goes to show that the media never knows more
    than what celebs want them too. When they want their biz in
    the news it is there, when they dont it aint. Personally I think Keyshia Cole says it best in Heaven Sent " You cant help who you love" I am sure alot of us have been in relationships w/ people where someone on the outside was like why is he/her with that person. If they are happy and in love then all they best!!! Cant be any worst than the rest of the celeb couples!

  • Coop

    @Sandra

    Monica is with Rocko and he's a nobody. Atleast Cici is with someone that is smart enough to make money.

  • Sharonda

    50 isn't THAT smart.Childish, but nowhere smart.It pays to be stupid and childish and d*** riding on his homies.

  • kat

    i'd get with 50....go ci ci (if it's true)

  • Too Tight

    50 look good he could get all day every day i love the thug "looking" type

  • http://www.myspace.com/millyly milly

    I knew it lol all that touching and rubbing and kissing on that video wasnt just "acting".
    Congrats though, I hope it really works out for them :)

    --------------------------

    How smart is any woman at 19 when it comes to choosing the right man?

  • Krysi – yes the same one

    actually ci ci is 22 she will be 23 in October. Womanhood is well underway.

  • lea

    Ciara is 22 years old which makes her a grown ass women, She's also a pretty smart girl. I think Fif is misunderstood he is not as bad and mean as he seems. He's really a sweetheart and I'm sure he treats her well..

  • katgirl33

    I think they make a cute couple....I also believe that 50 cent's persona is just a media front, at first to make money, but now just to keep his image alive..... I bet he treats her like a queen!

    Go girl....It's obvious she really did move on to BIGGER and better things....let that skank girl have Bow Wow's little azz!

  • katgirl33

    ...and ITA with a lot of the posts that basically say "50, you hot!"

    He is "thug" fine! LOL

  • jadecool

    Why does everyone bring up bow wow? That was 2 years ago she moved on way before she started to date 50.

  • cocoa49

    could it be the vitamin water money

  • cocoa49

    "have a baby by me".....hmmmm....security for the rest of her life

  • jadecool

    I don't think its the money, she does make a good amount, more than any of us will ever make. Maybe they are together cause ~shock~ she cares for him and vise versa.
