After 13 years of marriage, political commentator Van Jones’ wife just filed for divorce. Deets inside…
Van Jones’ wife Jana Carter filed divorce docs yesterday in L.A. County Court. Jana revealed they separated back in May. The couple, who married back in 2005, share two boys. They were last seen together, above, at the May 2017 Webby Awards in NYC.
In a statement, Van and Jana said:
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.”
Jana, who’s an attorney, is asking for joint legal and physical custody of the children, and spousal support.
We’re weirdly just as shocked about this split as we were when we first found out this was his wife….
The social activist, who once said Trump’s election was a whitelash against President Obama, posted an interesting IG post singing ALL of the praises of Kim Kardashian a day before those divorce docs were filed.

Very proud to spend the day with @kimkardashian at the @Whitehouse, pushing for #criminaljusticereform. Kim is an incredibly smart, effective, humble and determined advocate— working day in, Day out, around the clock to win clemency for individuals who should not be doomed to spend the rest of their lives behind bars. She does her homework and comes prepared to fight hard. I’m especially proud to be working with @jessymichele22 and the @cut50 team, to pass the #FirstStepAct and get other fixes done. I passionately oppose the Trump administration on a range of issues— but the 200,000 people locked up in federal prison right now get ZERO say in who runs the government and controls their lives. They need people to fight for them, no matter who is in the Oval Office. And I will not abandon them, as long as there is the slightest chance that we can win clemencies and pass meaningful legislation. Kim’s passion is a major asset in the fight for #justicereform.
We guess chile.
Van’s life is still looking pretty cheery. He’s got a new management deal with Roc Nation and a new show on CNN.
