Rosario Dawson And Senator Cory Booker’s Relationship Secrets

Rosario Dawson and Cory Booker have decided they’re better off as friends three years after they first started dating. A reporter for the paper of record followed the couple along the campaign trail and the two really opened up. “This stuff is intense. It’s really strenuous,” Dawson said of Booker’s run for President.

During that same interview, Booker also said he hopes his relationship with the actress “will last forever.” Booker had previously hinted at their relationship, telling The Breakfast Club radio show, “I got a boo,” in February of this year. Since their relationship has gone public, he’s continued to praise Dawson. Cory says initially, “She didn’t give me the time of day,” but later, they met each other again, and hit things off. Dawson and Booker met at a political fundraiser for Maryland Democratic gubernatorial candidate Ben Jealous several years ago.

Let’s be honest you are only here because you want to see the thirst traps from Dawson. Booker says they are still friends, but I am sure that he still wants to be more than friends. Booker assumed office as a senator for New Jersey in 2013 and was re-elected for a second full term in 2020. Cory Booker admitted he and his girlfriend Rosario Dawson are ‘adjusting and enjoying’ their New Jersey home together since she moved in with him this past summer.

As Dawson describes their relationship, “We’re here and we’re thriving… And I want that for the rest of my life.” The actor and the politician first met in the summer of 2018, at a political fundraiser for a mutual friend. Many people reacted to Dawson’s news on social media, wondering if the stars will align and Booker will win the presidency and marry Dawson, making her first lady. “I have no idea,” Dawson said when asked if engagement was in the future for her and Booker. “I am just grateful to be with someone I respect and love and admire so much and is so brilliant and kind and caring and loving.”

“To know your leadership will continue to guide us with love, brilliance, patience, grace and effectiveness is the kind of representation and hope we need.” Apparently the pair initially met at a fundraiser for then–Maryland gubernatorial candidate Ben Jealous, likely in the fall of 2017. Dawson was still in another relationship at the time, so nothing came of the encounter, but the politician and actress reconnected roughly a year later. The actress and NBA coach called it quits after news of Udoka allegedly having an affair with a female co-worker within the Boston Celtics organization, and was suspended as head coach of the professional basketball team. Long began dating Udoka in 2009 and the couple got engaged in 2015. They share a 10-year-old son, as well as Long’s 21-year-old son from a previous relationship.

We were thinking about moving in together anyway, but especially during all of this, it’s been really intense…I’m excited,” she added. Fans were shocked and saddened to discover that Rosario Dawson and Cory Booker had officially ended their relationship in February 2022. They remain fairly tight-lipped about the fact that they had called it quits, but a source close to the couple came forward to declare that they simply came to the conclusion that they were better off as friends, than as lovers. They both remain respectful of one another and have declared that they are “very good friends” despite the breakup. “So proud of and grateful for you my love. I got to vote for you here in New Jersey and am so glad that you overwhelmingly and rightfully won your seat again,” Dawson wrote on Instagram after the election.
