Nick Cannon and Selita Banks take break

Rapper-actor Nick Cannon and Victoria's Secret model Selita Ebanks have parted - for now.

"Selita and Nick are taking a break to focus on their careers but still very much love each other and remain the best of friends," Ebanks' publicist, Melissa Raubvogel, said Thursday.

No further details were provided.

Cannon proposed in May. The 26-year-old got down on bent knee as the words "Selita will you marry me?" flashed on a giant TV screen in Times Square. He then presented Ebanks with a 15-carat diamond ring that he helped design.

They met at a party in Miami in February.
