The rumor mill began to swirl over the weekend when New York Post columnist Cindy Adams revealed she's hearing whispers about the duo's budding romance.
"A new burble’s coming out of the Kim Kardashian klub. Throats are clearing throats after whispering the name Van Jones," she coyly wrote.
"He maybe even knows folk who’ll quickly shut their tongues if his name is even breathed in connection with maybe Kim, maybe," she continued before ending her blurb on a confident note. "I will not wait while everybody tells me I don’t know what I’m talking about," Cindy added.
Fans immediately lost it over the possible love connection but many were not into the idea of the rumored couple. "If Kim Kardashian marries Van Jones I’m no longer doing this whole life thing. That will be simply too much for me," one Twitter user wrote.
