Van Jones Shuts Down Rumors of Dating Kim Kardashian

Rumors have been circulating of a possible relationship between Van Jones and Kim Kardashian.
The rumors started when the two started working on criminal justice reform together and while she has been working on obtaining her law degree.

Van said, I never made any comments about the rumors of me and Kim Kardashian dating as it found it absurd…it was flattering for me but probably not for her.
Do you think Van should have spoken up as soon as the rumor started?
