15 of 105: Chelsea Handler and Andre Balazs began dating around January 2011 and her spokesperson confirmed to OnTheRedCarpet.com in November 2011 that they two had broken up.

Handler, a comedienne, is known for her talk show 'Chelsea Lately,' which airs on E! Entertainment Television. She plans to launch her own sitcom, which sees her playing her real-life sister, on NBC in early 2012.

Balazs heads a company that owns several hotels, including the Los Angeles properties the Chateau Marmont and The Standard, which are popular celebrity venues. He has in the past been linked romantically to Uma Thurman and Courtney Love.

Handler has in the past dated Ted Harbert, chairman of NBC Broadcasting, which merged with Comcast, owner of E! Entertainment Television. The two ended their four-year relationship in early 2010. The following summer, Handler went on to date Canadian zoologist and Animal Planet star Dave Salmoni. The two broke up in September 2010.

The comedienne also told Piers Morgan on his CNN talk show in the spring of 2011 that she 'casually' dated rapper 50 Cent, following months of speculation.
