First, a quick recap of the scandal that people cannot stop talking about.
Tristan Thompson, father of Khloé Kardashian’s child and a notorious cheater, was recently caught hooking up with Kylie Jenner’s BFF Jordyn Woods at a house party, according to several reports. Khloé and Tristan immediately broke up, and the internet has been ablaze with anger at both Tristan and Jordyn ever since.
Jordyn finally broke her silence in an interview on Red Table Talk, Jada Pinkett Smith’s Facebook Watch show.
Jordyn has apparently known Jada and husband Will Smith since she was a baby, which made this the perfect setting for her to speak her truth. With tears in her eyes, she told the entire story of that night with Tristan from start to finish.
Jordyn explained that on February 17, she went to Tristan’s house along with a bunch of other friends for an after-party. She didn’t think much of it at the time, since she knows Tristan through Khloé.
“I’m like, cool, that’s OK. It feels like a safe environment,” she said. “I’d rather it be his house than a random stranger.”
Obviously, there was alcohol involved. In retrospect, Jordyn says going to Tristan’s house at all was a mistake.
“I shouldn’t have even been there,” she said.
Once there, Jordyn and Tristan sat next to each other on a couch. They were in a room full of other people the whole time.
“Never once was I giving him a lap dance, making out with him, sitting all over him,” Jordyn said. “It’s just, we’re all together, we’re in a group. Never once did we leave a public area, go to a bedroom, go to a bathroom. We’re all in plain sight.”
Still, Jordyn acknowledged one important detail that could have led to the lap-sitting accusations — she put her legs on Tristan’s legs at one point.
Fast-forward to 6 a.m., and Jordyn was still at the party. Realizing that it was time for her to go, she headed to the door. That’s when Tristan kissed her.
“It was like a kiss on the lips, but no tongue kiss, no making out,” she said, clarifying that there was “no passion” in the kiss.
Jada asked Jordyn point-blank if she slept with Tristan, to which she said no, never.
“I’m no home-wrecker,” she insisted.
The next day, she spoke to both Kylie and Khloé about the party but left out the kiss, mostly because she was “scared.”
Unfortunately, the news got out anyway. Jordyn says the online harassment has been difficult for her to cope with. Her family now fears for their safety.
But she’s “not here to play the victim,” she said. She just wants to tell the truth and help the Kardashian family heal.
Jordyn even offered to take a lie detector test to prove that her version of the truth is accurate.
She added that she never had a flirtatious relationship with Tristan prior to the kiss, nor have the two communicated since then.
“[Khloé] doesn’t deserve this either. It’s not fair that she has to deal with this either,” she said.
But Khloé hasn’t taken the interview well. She took to Twitter to express her anger at Jordyn for going public with her apology.
Jordyn said in the interview, however, that she has been in touch with Khloé since the incident to express her apologies. She says she’s spoken to Kylie, too (who allegedly kicked her out of the house).
In fact, she expressed disappointment that the Kardashian/Jenners haven’t been there for her through this.
“The arms that I thought would be around me are nowhere to be found,” she said.
In any case, Jordyn seriously regrets what happened with Tristan and says she should have never put herself in that position in the first place.
If she could go back in time?
“I would not have gone to the party,” she said.
As you can imagine, Twitter is exploding with reactions to the interview. And with reactions to Khloé’s reaction.
To sum up: People on social media are largely sympathetic toward Jordyn, and they think Tristan is to blame for the demise of his relationship.
Jordyn is, after all, the youngest person in this situation by far. She’s 21, while Tristan is 27 and Khloé is 34.
Tristan was first caught cheating on Khloé when she was nine months pregnant with his child. The two reconciled, but things “never really went back to normal” after that, a source told People.
In all the madness, let’s not forget that Tristan was partying until dawn with a bunch of younger women, without Khloé there. That doesn’t exactly look like a loyal, committed partner!
Still, the Kardashians are “feeling 100 percent done with Jordyn,” a source said.
