Everything About Former TMZ Host Van Lathan's Personal Life And Net Worth

Former TMZ Host Van Lathan's interesting details about his fiancee came to light back in 2018, when he appeared as a guest in The Breakfast Club.

After the podcast came out, it became the talk of the town as people were always curious about the 41-year-old's relationship.

Who Is Van Lathan's Fiancee?

"My wife was there, his fiancee was there," says The Breakfast Club host Charlamagne when asked if Van and Charlamagne were alone during their vacation in 2017. 

Charlamagne shared that they went on a vacation to Anguilla with their partners, so, in a way, Charlamagne's statement proves that Van did have a fiancee back then.

Since he has not talked about his fiancee or girlfriend, it generally leaves us with no leads to his current relationship status. 

However, now we know that the famous personality was with somebody special.

Van Lathan's Wife & Kids

A sub-reddit held AMA (Ask Me Anything) with Rachel Lindsay and Van Lathan. One Redditor asked Van about whether he would let his kids go on the famous American dating and relationship reality television series, The Bachelor, to which Van replied, "Of Course,..."

He believes in the narrative of 'supporting' rather than 'letting,' so it is quite clear that there would be no restrictions if his child wants to do something.

As of now, Van does not seem to have a wife and certainly no children. Even though Van is vocal with his thoughts and opinions, he is very silent and secretive when it comes to talking about his relationship.

Besides the memes or funny stuff he posts in his Instagram profile, the ex-TMZ journalist surely lives a very lavish and wealthy lifestyle.

Van's primary source of income is from his professional career. In addition, he co-hosts the Higher Learning podcast with Rachel Lindsay, where they talk about various topics and issues.

He picked up a good reputation when he stood up against rapper Ye (formerly known as Kanye West) after Ye expressed that slavery was a choice during a live taping of the TMZ Live show.

Van has built a reputation of never backing down from anyone who disrespects him. So after being suddenly terminated from TMZ, Lathan declared joining Will Packer's new entertainment news show, Central Ave.
