Vivica A. Fox–on the heels of getting fired by Donald Trump on Celebrity Apprentice–sat down with Meredith Vieira on The Meredith Vieira Show, in an episode that will air on Monday, and talked about a very special man from her past.
Fox, of course, dated 50 Cent way back when, and they famously broke up in 2003. She admitted to Vieira, however, that he still holds a very special place in her heart.
“He is absolutely the love of my life,” she admitted, but added that dating him was ‘difficult.’
“I really, really cared for him and I loved him very, very much and I always will, but he just wasn’t right for me,” she said. “That’s hard when you really, really love a person in your heart, you want to be with them, but you finally have to say, ‘He’s just not right for me.'”
Vivica A. Fox and 50 Cent dated for about a year, and when they split each talked negatively in the media about the other. These days, however, she wishes nothing but good things for the ‘My Life’ rapper.
“I wish him the best, he is amazing and baby, he’s fine, but… sometimes love ain’t always right,” Vivica A. Fox explained to Meredith Vieira. “The heart wants what it wants, but sometimes it’s just not right.”

Fox learned something very important during her relationship with 50 Cent, however.
“[I learned] to trust in my heart and know to take the time not to settle,” she spilled. “I think as women sometimes we’re afraid to be alone or we think, ‘Oh my god, he’s a great catch.'”
Vivica A. Fox makes an excellent point in this statement–something all women, whether young or old–should take note of. Not settling is among the greatest gifts a woman can give to herself. Settling inevitably leads to destruction–of one or both people in a relationship.
Kudos to Vivica A. Fox for sharing her wise words, that likely weren’t easy to come by. She learned from experience, and that can hurt. But when the lesson is a good one, it always makes one stronger in the end.
Will you tune in to The Meredith Vieira Show on Monday to see her entire interview with Vivica A. Fox? What else might she share about her time with 50 Cent?
