Kim Kardashian and Van Jones: Their Age and Net Worth Differences

The rumor mill kicked into high gear in April 2021 concerning one possible celebrity relationship. Kim Kardashian, formerly Kim Kardashian West, recently filed for divorce from Kanye West, and some believe she’s dating CNN correspondent Van Jones. What are their age and net worth differences?

Fans saw Kardashian and Kanye West’s relationship blossom as her reality show career took off in the 2010s. Amid her divorce from Kris Humphries, they became one of the most famous couples in show business. After welcoming their first child, North, they married in 2014.

Several years, three children, and countless scandals later, Kardashian and West’s marriage appeared to be on the rocks. They looked they were trying to make things work for a while there. But in February 2021, numerous outlets reported that Kardashian had officially filed for divorce.

Meanwhile, Jones, a lawyer who later gained notoriety for his environmental work in the Obama administration, married his wife, Jana Carter, in 2005. Together, the pair have two sons. Following his resignation, Jones joined CNN as a commentator. He currently hosts The Van Jones Show on the network.

In 2018, Page Six reported that Jones and Carter were divorcing after 13 years of marriage. “Though we have decided to end our marriage, we still love each other very much. We will continue raising our kids together, running our businesses together, and supporting each other’s growth. There is no beef or drama — just evolution,” they told the publication in a statement.

Over the last few years, Kardashian has been working toward a new career path as a lawyer. She worked with Jones to convince then-president Donald Trump to sign the First Step Act for criminal justice reform, a subject she’s remained passionate about. Jones is also knowledgeable in this area.

The pair spoke at the 2018 Criminal Justice Summit together after Jones interviewed Kardashian on The Van Jones Show earlier that year. In April 2019, he told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live that he “had a misimpression” of the reality star when he met her, saying, “She’s brilliant.”

Though Kardashian is a mother of four and Jones has two children, she’s the younger of the members of this rumored couple. She celebrated her 40th birthday in October 2020, while he’s almost exactly 12 years older at 52. If the gossip is true, this would be the most significant age gap between Kardashian and any of her past partners.

As for net worth, the KKW Beauty founder’s wealth is well-documented. Forbes declared her “officially a billionaire” in April 2021, with an estimated net worth of around $1.4 billion. Jones, on the other hand, is thought to be worth around $5 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
