Love after love. 50 Cent and Vivica A. Fox had a famously passionate relationship and an even wilder breakup in 2003, but in a new interview on The Meredith Vieira Show, the stunning actress admitted that the rapper still holds a special place in her heart. 

"He is absolutely the love of my life," the Celebrity Apprentice alum, 50, admitted of 50 Cent, before explaining that dating the performer 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," Fox told host Meredith Vieira in an episode airing Monday, Feb. 16. "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.'"

Fox dated the "My Life" rapper, now 39, for about a year, and their split turned bitter when both stars spoke harshly and negatively about one another after they parted ways. Now, Fox harbors no further ill-will toward her ex, and emphasized the strong feelings that she had for him to Vieira.

"I wish him the best, he is amazing and baby, he's fine, but... sometimes love ain't always right," she explained. "The heart wants what it wants, but sometimes it’s just not right."

The Kill Bill actress added to Vieira that the relationship taught her a valuable lesson. 

"[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.'"
