Kylie Jenner and Jordyn Woods Reveal Long-Term Friendship Amid Tristan Thompson Scandal
In a recent interview with Jennifer Lawrence for Interview magazine, Kylie Jenner opened up about her enduring friendship with Jordyn Woods, despite the tumultuous events surrounding the Tristan Thompson scandal that unfolded in 2019.
The interview, published on Monday, delved into the nature of their relationship after social media erupted with accusations that Woods played a role in the breakup between Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson, who shares children with the reality star.
Lawrence, a well-known fan of “The Kardashians,” asked Jenner about the renewed friendship with Woods, stating, “We’ve recently seen that you are friends with Jordyn again. How is that? How did that happen? What up?”
Jenner explained, “Jordyn and I, we always stayed in touch throughout the years, and we would meet up at my house and catch up and just talk through everything. We never fully cut each other off, and one day, naturally, we were like, we want to get sushi and we don’t want to hide anymore.”
The scandal unfolded when, in 2019, Woods allegedly had an affair with Tristan Thompson. Woods later clarified in a conversation with Jada Pinkett Smith on “Red Table Talk” that Thompson had given her a closed-mouth kiss as she left a party at his house. Despite the controversy, Woods maintained that she was not the reason for Khloe Kardashian and Thompson’s breakup.

Woods revealed that she initially chose not to disclose the kiss to her best friend, Kylie Jenner, saying, “I just knew how much turmoil that was going on; I was just like, ‘Let me not throw more fuel on the fire.’ I was trying to protect Khloe’s heart.”
The surprising twist in the story came this summer when Jenner and Woods were spotted going out to dinner, marking a public rekindling of their friendship four years after the cheating scandal.
Reflecting on their journey, Jenner told Lawrence, “There’s a learning lesson in everything, and I think that in a weird way, everything happens how it’s supposed to happen. We were so attached at the hip that we needed space to grow into the people that we were supposed to be. I needed that independence and that confidence because she was like my security blanket for so long.”
