And it all went down on Twitter!
"I just heard nick cannon is starting a comedy tour. Who's going to do the comedy?"
Nick didn't feel the same way and took great offense to her comment. It led him into a Twitter rant that can only be described as "relentless".
He wrote back to her:
"Wow @chelseahandler I actually used to have respect for you as a comic. But for one artist to diss another in the same art form. #Tasteless, Soon as I get off stage tonight, I'm going in on @chelseahandler I'm about to be relentless! OFF WITH HER HEAD but right now I got to focus."
So with breathless anticipation, the world waited like an anxious, paranoid girlfriend at the phone computer to see what he would say to her. A few hours later, he delivered, posting:
"Funny how all of @chelseahandler fans are coming at my like I did something to her. I don't even know this broad! She on my s–t! But since it's all in fun and supposedly just comedy, Let's get to the muthaf–kin' JOKES!!
Everyone knows @Chelseahandler had sex with the head of E! for her show. So when it gets canceled does he get residual p–sy for the reruns? @Chelseahandler Looks like she got hit in the face with a hot bag of nickels!
Just talked to @50Cent He said he made @chelseahandler get G-Unit tattooed on her balls!
@50Cent wasn't hitting @chelseahandler they was just sharing testosterone tips.
@chelseahandler is like the new @joanrivers just without the funny and more plastic surgery."
Yep, he went there!
In the end, Nick tried to play off his insults as part of his comedy routine, but we have a feeling Chelsea isn't going to take it that way. She didn't respond to him on Twitter, but we're guessing she is waiting to use a more damaging venue to fire back - her TV show!
Settle in to your Twitter feeds, kids! We think we sense a round two coming up!
