Kim Kardashian has never dated CNN host Van Jones, 53,  but that isn’t stopping the newsman from enjoying the rumor while it lasted.

During an appearance on Jones’ Amazon Original podcast, Uncommon Ground, 41-year-old Kim laughed off the false story that the pair had gotten together after her split with Kanye West.

While Kim and Van joked that they’re currently ‘broken up’, she is taking things to the next level with boyfriend Pete Davidson who finally met her children – despite Ye’s staunch opposition.

‘Now that we’re broken up, we can actually have a conversation in public,’ Jones quipped to Kim before adding: ‘Best rumor ever.’

Kim, who has worked closely with the media personality on the issue of prison reform admitted she was surprised when stories began floating around that they were a couple. 

Jones concurred: ‘I know! It was so weird.’

‘But I tell you, being a big nerd, having all my guys from college calling, like, thinking I was like the hero. I was like, ‘No, we’re just working on trying to get people out of prison,” he said. ‘But it was a cool rumor.’

The relationship speculation came not long after Kim ended things with husband Kanye West and she recalled that the timing would have been too soon.

‘So many people asked me also and I was like, ‘You guys. I, like, just, need a minute before I’m out there.’ You know? Give me a minute at least,’ she told Van. 

While she definitely is not and was not ever dating Van Jones, Kim is getting more serious with her current rebound, Pete Davidson.

The billionaire mogul has finally introduced her boyfriend to the four children she shares with Kanye after nearly six months of dating.

Pete, 28, was captured cruising around in a pink, electric MOKE car with the reality star’s eldest daughter North, eight, on Sunday, April 3.

Kanye, 44, previously vowed that the SNL star would ‘never meet my kids’ in a since-deleted post shared to Instagram earlier this year, which included a leaked text from Pete expressing interest in doing so.

According to TMZ, Sunday’s ride took place in Kim’s brother-in-law Scott Disick’s gated community in Los Angeles and lasted around 30 minutes from 5PM to 5:30PM.

Sources also told the outlet that Scott’s nine-year-old daughter Penelope – who he shares with Kim’s sister Kourtney Kardashian – was riding in the vehicle with Pete and North.

The comedian and Kim’s daughter coordinated in all-black as they ventured through the neighborhood. Specifically, the SNL star had on a black hooded sweatshirt and a baseball cap.

Disick, 38, also took to Instagram on Sunday to share a video of Pete driving around in Kim’s pink ride as he and comedian had a funny back-and-forth about the SNL star being a Postmates driver.

Kim began dating Pete sometime in late October following her Saturday Night Live hosting gig earlier that month, where she and the comedian famously shared a kiss during an Aladdin themed sketch.

After months of romantic outings, Kim made her relationship with Pete Instagram official in March. She included a series of loved-up snaps.

TMZ recently learned that Pete and Kim visited his grandparents’ home in Staten Island while he was shooting a movie in New York.

The King of Staten Island actor has reportedly already met quite a bit of Kim’s family including her mother Kris who he was photographed with alongside Kim and rapper Flavor Flav in November.

In February 2021, the SKIMS founder announced that she’d be divorcing Kanye after nearly seven years of marriage.

And a source recently told Entertainment Tonight that she and Pete Davidson want to take their relationship to ‘the next level.’

The pair are reportedly letting their relationship ‘blossom’ despite the ‘drama’ caused by her ex.

‘Kim and Pete are super serious and they both want to take their relationship to the next level,’ a source told Entertainment Tonight.

That may mean that Kim will take Pete to the Los Angeles premiere of her new Hulu show The Kardashians, which is happening this week, DailyMail.com has learned. 

‘They are enamored with each other and are continuing to work on seeing their relationship blossom further, regardless of the drama that Kanye previously created,’ a source told ET.
