When it comes to the Kardashian-Jenner family, ‘drama’ is the watchword. It is the very foundation on which the wealth and popularity of the influential family were built. There are several reality shows that have been created to this effect. Most recently, the drama came via two people who are not members of the Kardashian family, Jordyn Woods and Tristan Thompson.
The scandal broke when Jordyn Woods, who is a longtime best friend of Kylie Jenner, one of the sisters in the Kardashian-Jenner empire was caught frolicking with Tristan Thompson, a Canadian basketball player who is the boyfriend of Khloe Kardashian and father of her child, True.
When the news of the scandal broke on February 2019, the Kardashian family and the internet, in turn, has turned into chaos as all players involved took to their respective social media to control the narrative.
With the battle being fought on social media, there hasn’t been a shortage of rumors or facts about what went down on that February night. Here is a look at some of them.
Jordyn Woods and Tristan Thompson Cheating Scandal Facts
1. Jordyn spent time at Tristan’s House on February 16-17
In what would have been an innocent scenario, Jordyn Woods, who through her best friend status with Kylie Jenner has become a close friend of the family, attended a party at the house of the basketball player, Tristan Thompson. While she was at the party, she was seen by attendees, frolicking with Tristan.
She was said to have sat in Tristan’s lap, with Tristan’s hands all over her body as they both smoked the hookah, and to cap off the supposed betrayal, Jordyn spent the night at Tristan Thompson’s place. Not seen leaving the house the following day until 7 am in the morning.
2. Thompson admitted to cheating on Khloe
While it was pretty rampant before the advent of social media, but with the presence of Twitter and Instagram now, covert trysts have become harder to keep a secret. By February 18, there were leaks all over the internet of Jordyn Woods and Tristan Thompson together, which led to a conversation between Khloe and Thompson where he apparently admitted to spending time with Jordyn.
However, that admission did not seem to stop him from tweeting ‘FAKE NEWS’ before deleting it.
3. The Kardashians have taken sides
Naturally, you expect to be supported by your family in a situation like this and so far, Khloe hasn’t been let down. Her sister Kim did one of the most significant things in modern social interaction and unfollowed both Jordyn Woods and Tristan Thompson. Kylie Jenner has also taken the side of her step-sister against her now former best friend.
4. Jordyn cleared or at least tried to clear the air
With Tristan choosing not to go on record about what exactly happened, the internet was rife with speculation that, having been cozy the night before, Jordyn and Thompson most definitely had sex. However, on March 1st, Jordyn Woods, who had been on the receiving end of a lot of abuse and criticism from fans of the Kardashians went on Red Table Talk, a show hosted by Jada Pinkett Smith and told her side of the story.
It was on the show that she claimed they never had sex and it was Thompson who kissed her.
5. The Interview did not go down well with Khloe
Before the credits rolled on the episode, Khloe took to Twitter and wrote a fiery tweet to Jordyn claiming she is lying and went as far as blaming her for her family’s break up. The tweet, however, did not go down well with a majority of the Internet’s populace who thought it wrong and unfair for Khloe to put the entire blame of the affair on Jordyn.
6. Khloe apologized and walked back her tweet
Following the overwhelming disapproval of her tweet blaming Jordyn, Khloe fired another tweet expressing that Tristan is to blame for the breakup, in what has been described as a damage control effort to the reaction to her original tweet.
1. Jordyn has been dating Tristan for a month
With stories like this, even with an abundance of facts, rumors are never far behind and shortly after the news broke, rumors began to spread that the incident that occurred on the 16/17th of February was in fact just a natural continuation of a relationship that had already begun between Jordyn Woods and Tristan Thompson. That rumor has so far been denied by TMZ and neither does Kylie believe it to be true.
2. Tristan and Khloe were already broken up
Perhaps the biggest rumor thus far is the incident happened when Tristan and Khloe were no longer in a relationship. According to Jordyn on the Red Table Talk, Tristan and Khloe were no longer together when she went over to his place. If it is true, while Jordyn still gets some blame for hooking up with the ex of a friend, the entire narrative about Jordyn being responsible for their breakup crumbles. Khloe, however, said Jordyn was lying. The truth hasn’t been confirmed yet.
