Months after Kim Kardashian put her side of the story straight, Van Jones has now responded to rumours he's dating the Keeping Up With The Kardashian star.
The pair first met in 2018, when they spoke at the Criminal Justice Reform Summit together, and fans have been speculating about a potential romance for months. Van has been helping Kim with her law degree, and the CNN presenter only added fuel to the fire when he gushed over what a good lawyer Kim was going to be.
"She’s doing amazing. I think she has used her platform to help people behind bars," he told The Ellen Show (via The Mirror.) "Her dad was a lawyer and she always wanted to be a lawyer. Once she got a taste of what she could do using her platform, using her brain, she hasn’t let up, so I think she’s going to be an unbelievable attorney."
Since then, though, Kim used the KUWTK Reunion to set the record straight during a chat with Andy Cohen. "Van texted me and was like, 'This rumour has got me so many dates and I'm so grateful, So I owe you'. No, [I'm not dating] Van Jones."
Now, Van, 52, has had his own say on the speculation, telling Page Six reports of their friendship being anything more than platonic were "absurd."
That settles that, then.
"I never made any comments about the rumours of me and Kim Kardashian dating as I found it absurd," he said. "It was flattering for me, but it probably wasn't flattering for her."
Straight from the source: Van Jones and Kim Kardashian are not dating.
