Rosario Dawson sparks romance rumors after split from Cory Booker

Fans were shaken when Rosario Dawson and Cory Booker announced they were splitting up in February. The Sin City actor and the US senator, who confirmed they were dating in 2019, split after more than two years together, according to People. While it’s not clear what caused the fallout, the two reportedly ended things amicably, with a source close to Booker saying they remained good friends. (However, a lawmaker declined to comment.)

As a reminder, Dawson and Booker first met at a political fundraiser in the summer of 2018, though they didn’t start dating until months later when their paths crossed a second time. In confirming their romance to TMZ, Dawson described the New Jersey senator as an “amazing human being.” “I’m just grateful to be with someone I respect and love and admire so much, who is so brilliant and kind and caring and loving,” she added. By 2020, it was confirmed that she and Booker were already living together at the politician’s home in Newark’s Central Ward. “This is the first time in my life that I’ve actually lived with someone,” Booker said on his profile for Buzzfeed. “And obviously Rosario and I are enjoying that and adjusting to that.”

Now six months after their unfortunate split, Dawson appears to have moved away from her ex as she unveiled a new relationship to the public.

Rosario Dawson is said to be dating Nnamdi Okafor

Six months after splitting from Senator Cory Booker, Rosario Dawson is sparking serious romance rumors with Nigerian poet Nnamdi Okafor. After the “Love, Death, & Robots” actor shared a video of the couple moving golf carts at the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo on Aug. 8. The poet can then be heard telling Dawson, “I love you, baby.” To which she replied with a smile, “I love you too.”

The post, which Dawson captioned with a simple heart-on-fire emoji, immediately drew a lot of attention from her followers. Fans and friends expressed their happiness for the actress, including Booker himself, who showed his support by “liking” the post (per E! News). According to The Jasmine Brand, it was June when Okafor first opened up about his relationship with Dawson, sharing Instagram snaps of the couple on a romantic date. During this time, the actor also left a flirty comment on one of her boyfriend’s old posts, in which he reportedly joked about not waking up with the love of his life. She wrote, “I got you boo,” followed by a red heart emoji. Okafor has sadly since made his Instagram private, meaning eager fans will have to wait until Dawson decides to finally spill the beans of their love affair. We keep our eyes open!
