Rosario Dawson is living that Camelot dream… falling in love with a handsome Democratic politician and being whisked away to glamorous …Newark? Newark? OK, it ain’t the Kennedy compound in Cape Cod, but it’ll have to do.
Rosario and her boyfriend, New Jersey Senator Cory Booker, have been dating since the end of 2018. He’s been vocally gaga about Rosario, and she’s been spotted wearing a ring (but there’s zero engagement confirmation). They have been separated during the quarantine. 41-year-old Rosario chose to stay in California to take care of her dad who was recovering from cancer-related surgery. Many side-eyed the relationship as a PR stunt for Cory’s presidential campaign, but they’re really showing that their love is as real as Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello’s. Because Rosario has revealed that she’s taking the next big step in their relationship, and she’s moving across the country to live with 51-year-old Cory in Newark.

“I’m actually in the process of moving, by the way. I’m going to New Jersey. I’m moving to Newark,” Dawson, 41, told Kevin Smith at the Mooby’s Pop-Up in Los Angeles (via People). “It’s time. We were thinking about moving in together anyway, but especially during all of this, it’s been really intense.
“I’m excited,” she added.
Dedrek Finley, the ex-handyman who sued Rosario and her family for abuse and discrimination (he is a trans man), just breathed a sigh of relief. Yes, Rosario, move your ass 3000 miles away, and PLEASE, take your mom with you!
But back to the love-fest. While Cory was raised in the suburbs, he now famously lives in a modest townhouse in a low-income Newark neighborhood. Rosario’s originally from New York but has spent the better part of the last two decades living in Los Angeles. She has one teenage daughter, whom she adopted in 2014. Hey, if these California girls don’t like their new digs, they’re just a ten-minute drive from Newark Airport (thanks Google Maps).
Staying apart during quarantine was definitely a good relationship (and health) move. Absence makes the heart grow fonder, and self-isolating with your husband and kids in a single-room cabin makes the mind go bonkers. In this case, Mean Ol’ Corona actually helped a relationship! If you’re keeping score, that’s True Everlasting Love: 1, COVID-19-Related Splits: WAY MORE THAN 1.
