Marv Albert says he was never involved in an altercation with 50 Cent, denying Internet reports of a fight on "Jimmy Kimmel Live." According to the reports, punches were thrown after members of the rapper's entourage didn't recognize Albert, the longtime sports broadcaster who was appearing as a guest on the show on Wednesday night.

But Albert tells The Associated Press he was not even close to the exchange, which he believed was caused when a member of 50 Cent's party was prevented by show security from using a phone in the room that was supposed to belong to Albert.

Albert says Saturday he even read one account that he was punched by 50 Cent, who was the show's musical guest, but says they never crossed paths.
