Romance rumors linking Kardashian and Jones, who finalized his divorce from ex-wife Jana Carter in 2019, first surfaced in early January. However, the two have known each other for years, with both of them serving as keynote speakers at Rolling Stone’s Criminal Justice Reform Summit in 2018.

As rumors that they're dating continue to spread, Twitter users have weighed in on the potential couple, with some expressing approval over Kardashian moving on with Jones while others have doubts about the romance speculation.

"This seems strategic... like 'they both have a love for the law,'" one person commented.

"I think I just lost more respect for Van Jones," another wrote. "She goes from one loser to another doesn't she," a third user commented.

"wait. i thought Van Jones was married? but he's dating married Kim Kartrashian? this would not surprise me in the least. she'd use him for her supposed 'law degree' and he's using her for street cred? *smdh*," a fourth netizen said.

Wrote another, "Can @KimKardashian get a divorce first before we start shipping her with anyone, sheesh."

Some Twitter users pointed out that there is likely no truth to the rumors, while others said they would root for Kardashian and Jones if the romance talks are true.

One person tweeted, "People, don’t be so fast judge, look up the definition of Rumors."

"They’re perfect for each other," a fan wrote, while a second user commented, "Must admit table talks have been musician actor or athlete... didn’t see this one coming but I like it."

"Aww what a classy looking man. She deserves a man who is not crazy," a third netizen added.

"Yaaaaaaaas this is a couple I could get behind! Love them together!" another supporter commented.

"Her life, her rules," one said, defending the "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star.

Page Six previously reported that Kardashian was being courted by a long list of wealthy and famous suitors, including royals, billionaires CEOs and A-list actors, following her split from West.
