Sexy actress Vivica A Fox has slammed her ex-boyfriend 50 CENT, after learning their romance was over when the rapper was interviewed by American shock jock Howard Stern.

The Kill Bill beauty, 39, embarked on a romance with 27-year-old 50 - real name CURTIS JACKSON - over the summer (03). But within months, things turned sour, with the P.I.M.P. rapper announcing all had come to an end last month (NOV03).

But Vivica claims she had no knowledge she'd become the New York native's ex until she heard the rapper's interview.

Referring to the bullet-scarred former crack dealer's criminal past, she quips, "At least I don't have to get a pink bulletproof vest."

And she's also upset to learn that 50 Cent has been boasting about receiving jewellery from her, which she insists is untrue.

She adds, "He's rapping about 'the rocks Vivica gave me'. No! You turned your own ring that you bought yourself into an earring. I never saw it. He bought his own rocks.

"He is living in a world of deception."
