Did Kim Kardashian find herself a new boyfriend amid her ongoing divorce from Kanye West?

The 40-year-old mom is being linked to CNN reporter Van Jones.

The pair have been friends for years, but fans are now speculating that their friends have turned into something romantic as she continues her four-year law apprenticeship with Jones' Oakland-based nonpartisan organization.

He and the reality star may have grown close together when Kardashian became involved in campaigning for criminal justice reform in 2018.

Rumors of them dating initially originated in early January amid news of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian split.

But it only fueled after Page Six said they have a "cute 'Legally Blonde' love match."

They expanded the rumors saying, "He maybe even influenced her politics."

"I will not wait while everybody tells me I don't know what I'm talking about."

Though fans on Twitter couldn't help but be happy for the "Keeping Up With the Kardashian" star, there are still fans who are divided by the idea of them as a couple.

Many accused the KKW Beauty mogul of using Jones to "further her law career."

One fired fan said, "People are gonna look at Kim as using Kanye to advance her in the fashion world and using Van Jones to help advance her into her next career field in law."

Another said, "If Kim Kardashian marries Van Jones I'm no longer doing this whole life thing. That will be simply too much for me."
