Kim Kardashian has shut down claims she is secretly dating her close friend Van Jones, after months of speculation.
The 40-year-old was first linked to the CNN reporter in April, shortly after she officially filed for divorce from rapper Kanye West.
However, the reality star laughed off the romance rumors during the Keeping Up With The Kardashian’s reunion special, The Final Curtain Part 1, on Thursday night.
When host Andy Cohen asked about her alleged romance with her legal mentor, Kim claimed the false rumors had ended up being beneficial for the 52-year-old’s love life.
She explained: ‘Van texted me and was like, “This rumor has gotten me so many dates and I’m so grateful, so I owe you”‘.
Kim has been doing an apprenticeship at Van’s nonprofit Dream Corps for four years.
The pair have worked together on criminal justice reform and helped to free Alice Johnson from jail in 2018, after she was jailed for life for a first-time drug offense.
The CNN reporter quickly became her legal mentor and is credited for introducing Kim to Jessica Jackson and Erin Haney, who’ve been helping the aspiring lawyer prep for the California State Bar in 2024.
The SKIMS founder also cleared up rumors she’s dating Colombian singer Maluma after they were spotted partying together in Miami in April.

‘No. I’m not dating either one. Not Van Jones, not Maluma,’ Kim stressed. ‘I’ve known [Maluma]. I’ve seen him a few times, always in Miami. Such a nice guy.’
Elsewhere in the KUWTK reunion, Kim opened up about what she’s looking for in a future partner as she stated: ‘What I was looking for and who I was years ago, was completely different than who I am today.’
The reality star added she’s open to dating a non-celebrity as she explained: ‘Just someone that would understand what this life is about, though. I value privacy, and I just want something that’s, like, really real.’
Kim officially filed for divorce from Jesus Walks hitmaker Kanye, 44, in February after six years of marriage.
The pair share four children: North, eight, Saint, five, Chicago, three, and Psalm, two.
Part two of the KUWTK reunion airs on Sunday in the US, while it is available to stream on hayu in the UK.
