Nick Cannon and Miss USA?? (No Not That Miss USA)

Nick Cannon Wants to Date Miss USA Rachel Smith

Rumor has it that Nick Cannon — who recently split from model Selita Ebanks — has his eyes set on the reigning Miss USA, Rachel Smith.

“Last week, he sent her several dozen roses, chocolates and balloons,” said a source. “When she opened her apartment door, the hallway was flooded with stuff, and on each item was a different hand-written note from Nick to her.”

The two haven’t actually been on a date yet.

This sounds like something a publicist planted. I just wonder whose publicist.
