Lindsay Lohan has been romantically linked to a new man - rapper/actor Nick Cannon.

FREAKY FRIDAY star Lohan has kept her love life under tight wraps following her split from Wilmer Valderrama last year (04), and sources now claim she and Cannon are an item.

But Cannon, who recently presented Lohan with the VH1 Big In '05 'It' Girl Award, is coy about the gossip, simply stating, "I'm very fond of her. She's a very beautiful person and a great friend of mine."

Cannon, who once dated sexy singer Christina Milian, met Lohan on the set of their movie BOBBY, which follows the assassination of US politician ROBERT KENNEDY and also stars Demi Moore, Elijah Wood, Sharon Stone and SIR Anthony Hopkins.
