The rumor mill is spinning over speculation that Kim Kardashian is dating close friends and CNN correspondent Van Jones, as it’s been revealed that there’s much more history between them than fans ever thought possible. Kanye West has made it clear he has eyes for artists only, following he and Kim Kardashian’s divorce, but it seems Kim also has her sights set on something new… or should I say, someONE.
Rumors have been running rampant over the past few weeks of Kim’s alleged new relationship with good friend and CNN anchor Van Jones, after being considered a hot commodity among Hollywood, since filing for divorce from Kanye back in February.
Following the news of her divorce, Kim had supposedly wanted to “focus on herself and her kids right now” after a “rough year,” and rightfully so. But the new dating rumors come as Kim is allegedly being courted by some of the biggest names in the world, from royals to athletes and now apparently fellow lawyers.
A source revealed to PageSix, “People are reaching out through mutual friends and people that she’s worked with to set her up with everyone from Royal Family members to A-list actors to athletes to billionaire CEOs.” Nice!!!
But according to the outlet’s columnist Cindy Adams, Kim and Van have only recently started dating, and the rumors are only “continuing to spread.” Adams reported that Van has “maybe even influenced Kim’s politics” and “maybe even has ties to show business types,” as Kim has been tirelessly studying to become a lawyer, which Van already is.
As many fans might recall, Kim and Van actually go way back, having attended Variety and Rolling Stone’s Criminal Justice Reform Summit together back in 2018 to discuss prison reform.
That same year, Kim made an appearance on The Van Jones Show, and the following year, Van admitted on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live that he thinks Kim is “brilliant.” “She’s brilliant. She is no joke.” “Brilliant?!” “Brilliant, yes!”
During the same interview, Van explained to Andy why he thought Kim would make an excellent lawyer, saying, “She’s incredibly persuasive and persistent, and she eats law books for breakfast.”
Like Kim, Van also went through a divorce from his wife Jana Carter back in 2018, in which they share two children together, so he and Kim are likely able to confide in each other over the trials and tribulations of their past relationships. While the two both appear to be driven by their passions, political stances, and law reform, many fans are convinced this rumored relationship is good for her career.
However, others are outraged over the fact that Kim could just be using Van to get ahead in her law career.
One user tweeted, “People are gonna look at Kim as using Kanye to advance her in the fashion world and using Van Jones to help advance her into her next career field in law.” Another person said, “If Kim Kardashian marries Van Jones I’m no longer doing this whole life thing. That will be simply too much for me.”
While neither Kim nor Van has yet to speak out on the dating rumors, it’s important to note that as of now, this is nothing more than speculation as they could just be good friends helping each other out in times of need.
