NEW YORK (AP) - Months after a public proposal in Times Square, Nick Cannon and Victoria's Secret model Selita Ebanks have parted ways - for the time being.

"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 popped the question in May. The 26-year-old rapper-actor 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 Super Bowl party in Miami in February.
