Kim Kardashian might be dating CNN commentator Van Jones, moving on from Kanye West quicker than expected. The billionaire reality star filed for divorce from her husband of seven years on February 20, 2021, and as the pair divides their assets it seems that Kim is ready for a new romance.
The rumor is that Kim has her eyes set on the 52-year-old political commentator, whom she spent time with when discussing prison reform in 2018. Their debut appearance together at the Variety and Rolling Stone’s Criminal Justice Reform Summit was likely no more than professional, but it seems that things have heated up since then.
Page Six reported on Kim’s potential love affair with Van Jones, and while nothing has been confirmed, it is well known that Jones is a fan of Kim’s and has been for quite some time. The CNN host has sung praise for the reality star before, noting her efforts to reform the criminal justice system. Jones even claimed that President Donald Trump changed his stance on the issue because of Kim’s work. The duo’s passion for criminal justice reform has resulted in numerous appearances together.
Kim Kardashian has had an adventurous love life over the years. Since 2000, she’s been married three times, from Damon Thomas to Kris Humphries and Kanye West. Some thought she might take a break from dating after her divorce from Kanye West. But it doesn’t seem like it!
Since her separation from the prominent rapper, Kim has been courted by various high-profile figures. “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,” a source told Page Six. “People are also trying to reach out to her via DM.”
Though Kim is supposedly “not looking to jump into anything,” according to the source, the recently-crowned billionaire is “keeping an open mind.” It’s likely that if the right suitor comes knocking, Kim will answer the door.
Kim Kardashian has been known to rush into new flings since her first marriage with Damon Thomas at 19-years-old. The two eloped but split three years later in 2003. She then quickly jumped into things with Ray J, with whom she made her infamous sex tape. After her rebound with Ray, Kim locked eyes with Nick Lachey, but it didn’t last long at all – it was only one date, according to a 2013 interview Nick had with Details.
In 2007 Kim sprinted head-first into Reggie Bush, whom she dated on and off for three years. There were many more men between Reggie and her second husband, Kris Humphries, but Kim still didn’t find luck with the Nets basketball player, as they split 72 days after tying the knot.
Van Jones is recently divorced like Kim. He separated from his wife of 14 years, Jana Carter, in 2019. He is an author, lawyer, but is best known for being a political commentator on CNN. He could be one of the best places for Kim to look for new love, especially since Kanye is reportedly ready to move on, as well.
