New Odd Couple: Britney and Nick Carter?

Has-been celeb Nick Carter of the Backstreet Boys is doing a little name dropping, though I'm not sure if the name he is dropping will help or hinder his career. That name is Britney Spears, and the context in which Carter is using it is that they are dating.


"Nick's claiming that he and Brit have been 'dating' for about three weeks," a source close to the 27-year-old boy-bander tells OK!. "He says they’ve been chatting, texting, instant messaging and talking all the time they’re both heavy into other." The source also reveals that Nick has even told some of his bandmates, "I really like her."

But some insiders warn that Nick, who famously dated Paris Hilton several years ago and who is rumored to be no friend of Brit's ex Justin Timberlake, might be taking advantage of Brit's headline-making status. "Not saying it's not true," one insider explains to OK!, "But it strikes me as a bit of a coincidence that Nick is name-dropping Brit now when Backstreet's got an album coming out soon."

Well isn't THAT a coinkydink. The popwreck is plastered all over every news outlet, blog, and tabloid due to her disastrous VMA show, followed by a semi-disastrous court date for her divorce in which a secret witness testified on her drug use and nude proclivities. Tell us something we didn't know already, will ya?
