New couple alert!
While New Jersey senator Cory Booker first made headlines as one of Hillary Clinton‘s potential picks for vice president, it seems the politician’s love life is what people are chatting about these days. Hmm, go on!
Although Tim Kaine ended up being selected by Clinton, Booker ended up becoming another lady’s first pick as he’s now reportedly dating poet Cleo Wade. In case you forgot, Miz Wade is the same Instagram star who was previously linked to Robert Pattinson. Well, well!
According to Page Six, the senator and the artist attended Refinery29‘s 29 Rooms bash in Brooklyn together and were supposedly not so subtle with their PDA. Not to mention, Cleo was one of the featured artists at the event as she collaborated on an installation where visitors were invited to lay on a red bed and wear a pair of headphones as they watched a screen on the ceiling.
One source dished:
“They were holding hands through the different rooms and looked very much like a couple. He was shaking hands with people who were coming up to him, and she was being very friendly with everyone and patient when they wanted to take his picture. He was saying he came to see her work.”
LOVES it! Despite looking somewhat out of place at the art show, Booker wasn’t the only prominent person to attend the event as Jessica Alba, Adrian Grenier, Broad City‘s Abbi Jacobson, and Priyanka Chopra were also there.
Still, we are curious to learn how the internet famous artist from New Orleans got together with the politician. Perhaps Katy Perry linked the two, as she’s been campaigning for Hillary (like Cory) AND Cleo used to work for the Rise singer?
We doubt we’ll ever find out as Cory is famously private about his love life. In fact, he believes it is “unfair” to put his dating life out there — especially if the person he is seeing doesn’t work in the public eye.
Booker was previously linked to entertainment lawyer Bianca Levin. Nonetheless, we think Cory and Cleo make a fine pair!
