New Jersey Senator and former presidential candidate, Cory Booker, and 42-year-old actress, Rosario Dawson, have called it quits after their three-year-long tenure together. The two were married in September 2015 and were living together before their relationship turned sour. Price of admission for this article is the photo of 47-year-old Cory apparently doing the duckface with his 40-year-old wife. Sorry, folks, I'm not gonna do it for you.


The couple went on to have a very public courtship, appearing on the campaign trail and at movie premieres together. They were even able to weather the early days of the coronavirus pandemic. Although many Booker fans were hoping this relationship would stick—Dawson even sold her California mansion to live with Booker on the East Coast earlier this year—a second source confirmed to Marie Claire that the relationship is over. A representative from Senator Booker's office declined to comment for this story.

Still smiling as the cameraman followed her through the airport (that's how you know someone's super-happy), Dawson said their relationship was "so far, so wonderful. He's a wonderful human being, it's good to spend some time together when we can, [we're] very busy." Asked if she'd be following in Jennifer Lopez's footsteps by getting engaged soon (J.Lo then newly betrothed to now ex-fiancé Alex Rodriguez), she gave a wow-you-went-there laugh and said she had "no idea."

She told Variety the following month that, should it end up that Booker wasn't able to attend the Zombieland: Double Tap premiere, "I'm curious to see...if he's going to get the same amount of press being like, 'why aren't you supporting your woman.' I've been getting all this press like, 'Why aren't you at your man's side,' when I've made it really clear that it's okay to be a working mom." (At the time, Dawson was also extremely occupied helping to care for her father as he battled pancreatic cancer, spending every other weekend with him.) (Source: www.eonline.com)
