maria sharapova chelsea handler dad Maria Sharapova: Chelsea Handler, my dad has a thing for you

Maria Sharapova‘s family has a strange relationship with Chelsea Handler. While visiting “Chelsea Lately,” the tennis player talked about how her mother was terrified of Handler, but her father has a bit of a crush on the late night comedian.

“He did not care one bit about my birthday party until he heard that you’re coming, and then he got legitimately upset that he wasn’t invited,” Sharapova shares with Handler, via E! Online.

That news didn’t come as a surprise to the “Chelsea Lately” host. She jokes to Sharapova, “Your father was hitting on me the entire time. He’s been texting me,” later adding, “Old men like me. They want to do bad things to my body.”

Sharapova was on the show to promote her new candy line, Sugarpova. Handler, who had already tried some of the candies on her own, says her favorite one is called “Flirty Sour.”

“Flirty sour.’ Oh, I wonder why you like that one,” Sharapova quips of the gummies.
