The 'Candy Shop' rapper says he admires Tulisa for how she handled the sex tape scandal.
50 Cent has revealed he wants to meet up with Tulisa Contostavlos when he is in the UK next, and has suggested the two could even work together in the future.
The 'In Da Club' rapper is quoted as describing Tulisa as "talented" and "tough", as well as admiring The X Factor UK judge for how she handed her ex-boyfriend Justin Edwards leaking a sex tape of the two together.
"I'm going to be over in the UK later on again in the year and I would love to meet Tulisa for dinner," 50 Cent reportedly told the Daily Star. "She had it tough and she has also been through some s**t recently as well.
"I love how she has handled that by flipping the bird to the guy who sold her out."
The 'Candy Shop' rapper went on to tease that he and 'Young' singer Tulisa could eventually hit the recording studio together, after praising her for her background and musical ability.
"I only work with people who've goat story to tell. You get a lot of wannabes writing lyrics about their tough upbringing," he explained. "I been watching and readying about Tulisa since she got the role on The X Factor UK and my girl is no wannabe.
He added: "She is real, she is talented and the sort of person I want to be creating music."

Last weekend Tulisa was forced to pull out of a festival appearance last minute but was well enough to return to her duties on The X Factor at bootcamp earlier this week.
Tulisa Contostavlos released her debut single 'Young' earlier this year and recently shot the music video for her currently unannounced second solo single.
