R+B heart-throb Usher has moved on quickly after his split from supermodel NAOMI CAMPBELL - he has already been spotted with several potential replacements.

The A-list pair ended their brief dalliance earlier this month (DEC04), amid reports of a series of rows.

But Usher hasn't waited long to move on - he has been seen out and about in New York with actress Joy Bryant and up-and-coming starlet KARRINE STEFFANS claims she's dating the hunk.

Steffans, who has appeared in music videos with Jay-Z, tells the NEW YORK DAILY NEWS, "We're old friends who have seen each other over the last five years.

"Currently, (Usher and I are) seeing each other personally."

She adds of rumours she was spotted stepping out of a taxi at Usher's hotel, wearing just a robe, "I was a surprise for him after a hard day's work. I was his Christmas present. I had on a bow. He got his gift in the car."
