Kim Kardashian is reportedly dating someone new just two months after divorcing Kanye West.
According to rumours, the billionaire reality star, 40, is dating 52-year-old CNN host Van Jones.
After weeks of speculation, Page Six columnist Cindy Adams speculated on Sunday that the two were dating.
“There is a new burble emanating from the Kim Kardashian klub. After whispering the name Van Jones, throats are clearing,” Adams wrote.
“I am not going to wait until everyone tells me I have no idea what I’m talking about.”
Van Jones is an unlikely candidate to replace Kardashian, following reports that she was being courted by royalty, A-list actors, and billionaire CEOs following her breakup.
Kardashian has known Jones for several years, having worked closely together in 2018 to advocate for clemency for those serving excessively long sentences for non-violent and minor offences.

He is well-known for being on the left of politics, having served as a special adviser to former US President Barack Obama in 2009.
“His car is so far left that it cannot even turn right,” Adams wrote, implying that he may have influenced Kim’s political ideologies.
Additionally, the journalist is the author of a New York Times best-selling book and an Emmy Award.
Jones is also a lawyer, a field in which Kim Kardashian is studying for the bar exam.
Kardashian initiated divorce proceedings in February.
She and West, 43, will fight for custody of their four children and their $US2 billion fortune.
Meanwhile, Van Jones is divorcing his 13-year wife.
He was married to Jana Carter until she filed for divorce in September 2018.
They were parents to two children together.
Van announced the news on Instagram, writing, “Divorce ends a marriage, not a family.” #ForeverFamily.”
