For years it has been said on the street that Van Jones was dating Kim Kardashian. It is unknown how these rumors came about, but the 52-year-old is now closing them.
Jones told Page Six at the reopening of Jay-Z’s 40/40 Club on Saturday August 28th, “I never commented on the rumors about me and Kim Kardashian because I found it absurd.”
He added, “It was flattering to me, but probably not to her.”

In June, Kardashian, 40, brought up the reports.
According to Insider, she said to Andy Cohen, “Van texted me and said, ‘This rumor got me so many dates and I’m so grateful so I owe you.'”
In February, Kardashian officially filed for divorce from Kanye West. Jones separated from his wife Jana Carter in 2019 after 14 years of marriage.
Kardashian has spent the past four years training at Jones’ nonprofit Dream Corps.
