KIM Kardashian’s rumored boyfriend Van Jones broke his silence on the claims that he dated the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star before her divorce.
The 40-year-old filed for divorce from Kanye West in February.
While speaking to Page Six at the reopening of Jay-Z’s 40/40 Club, the CNN commentator shut down rumors that he was ever in a relationship with Kim.
Van told the outlet: “I never made any comments about the rumors of me and Kim Kardashian dating as I found it absurd.”
The 52-year-old added: “It was flattering for me, but it probably wasn’t flattering for her.”
Kim and Van have known each other for years.
The friends worked together on criminal-justice reform, helping to free Alice Johnson from jail in 2018 after she was jailed for life for a first-time drug offense.
Shortly after the KUWTK star filed for divorce from Kanye, fans rallied for Van- who separated from his wife of 14 years in 2019- to date the TV personality.
One commented back in January of the two at a criminal justice summit: "They look good together" below a picture of the pair at a criminal justice summit.”
Another tweeted: "Kim K dates up, Van Jones would be a perfect match in this political climate.”
However, fans eventually accused Kim of "using" the CCN commentator “further her law career" as she studied for the Baby Bar.
One fan fired on Twitter: “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.”
A second said: “I really hope Kim Kardashian actually is dating Van Jones. She would have her legally blonde where she dumps Warren at the end & starts dating Luke Wilson.”
A third wrote: “If Kim Kardashian marries Van Jones I’m no longer doing this whole life thing. That will be simply too much for me.”
THE END OF KIMYE
Kim, who shares North, eight, Saint, five, Chicago, three, and Psalm, two, with Kanye, 44, filed for divorce from her third husband after nearly seven years of marriage.
The divorce filing came after Kanye struggled with his bipolar disorder over the summer, as he went on rants on Twitter and at his presidential rallies.
Despite their failed marriage, Kim has supported Kanye in recent weeks by attending all of his DONDA listening events.
