50 Cent's Mariah hook-up
09:30 06 September 2005
50 Cent was left furious after Eminem promised to set him up with Mariah Carey after he had "finished" with her - but never got round to it.
The 'In Da Club' rapper was hoping to date the sexy singer - who denies she romanced Eminem - after his best pal said he would act as matchmaker.
But 50, who has previously been out with 'Kill Bill' actress Vivica Fox, when Eminem went back on his word.
He revealed to Britain's Loaded magazine: "Eminem said that he was finished with Mariah and that I could, you know I thought I was gonna hit that, and then he didn't hook me up, so I ain't really happy with him right now."
However, 50 hasn't given up hope of getting together with Mariah, who has recently been linked to actor Eddie Murphy.
He said: "If I see her in the street, I'll try."
Mariah recently branded Eminem a liar after he claimed to have had an affair with her.
She said: "I knew him, I hung out with him a few times, but nothing sexual occurred. Maybe he thought he'd look bad or something."
Mariah has always denied dating Eminem, but he recently claimed reports of his steamy affair with Mariah after she was dumped by her boyfriend Luis Miguel for the second time were in fact true.
He confessed in 2002: "There is truth to the story. Now I respect her as a singer but on a personal level I'm not really feeling it."
