Van Jones has been my political analysis bae for some time now. And while he and I have never been in the same room, I kept my crush “respectful” in my mind because I knew he was married with children.

Jana Carter and Jones married in 2005.

But according to TMZ, the couple are headed for divorce after nearly 13 years of marriage. Documents obtained by TMZ show that Carter filed for divorce on September 7. The paperwork states that the couple has been separated since May.

Jones, 49, and Carter have two sons.

Carter, an entrepreneur and attorney, is seeking joint legal and physical custody of their two children and spousal support.

Jones, an attorney, author, CNN personality and a former advisor on the Obama administration, issued this statement along with his estranged wife.

“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.”

This sounds like it has the potential to be very mature.
