According to Marie Claire, the 52-year-old politician and 42-year-old star broke up this summer. Their split went under the radar, but the two have decided to remain close friends.

It appears distance doesn't make the heart grow fonder.

"The distance made it difficult," one source close to the former couple spilled to the outlet. Booker has been holed up in Washington the past year working on legislation in the Senate. Dawson has been busy filming Clerks III and a rumored new Star Wars project.

In May, Dawson told PEOPLE that she decided to move into Booker's Newark home. She also shared that she made the drive from California to New Jersey with her father, and how it felt to make the big move.

"So, we met again, and I had one of those really awkward experiences,” Booker told CNN in March 2019. “I’m a United States senator, and I had to get up the courage to walk up to her and ask her for her phone number. And being on TV doesn’t make me nervous, but that made me nervous."

That same month, Dawson confirmed their relationship.

"I am just grateful to be with someone that I respect and love and admire so much,” she said at the time. "He's an amazing human being. It's good to spend some time together when we can."
