Jordyn Woods is a social media star, a model and a notable name in the entertainment industry, but above all else, she is known as the best friend of Kylie Jenner. As someone with a platform, she has used her voice to promote body positivity as she is a recognizable plus-sized model.
In her career so far, she has taken plausible steps and recorded worthwhile achievements which include bagging modeling gigs for magazines and brands such as Vogue and Mane Addicts. However, in recent years, a pop-culture shattering scandal has brought her even greater recognition.
The Tristan Thompson – Jordyn Woods Scandal
On the 16th of February, 2019, Jordyn Woods laid the foundations of a massive scandal when she was caught leaving Tristan Thompson’s house on the morning of the 17th, after a party held at the basketballer’s home in the previous evening. During the party, Jordyn and Tristan reportedly got flirty, according to those who were in attendance.
When news of the incident broke, it went viral because Tristan was the boyfriend of her best friend’s sister – Khloe Kardashian. The Kardashian family considered the incident a betrayal of their relationship, prompting attacks on her by members of the family, including the most popular of them, Kim Kardashian, who unfollowed her on Instagram. Kim claimed to have learned of the incident from her friend, Larsa Pippen.
Speculation was rampant regarding the extent of her flirtatious interaction with Tristan Thompson. Some rumors suggested they had sex, while others said nothing happened. In March 2019, Jordan put an end to the speculations and admitted she kissed Tristan and nothing further.
The harshest reaction to her confession, perhaps, came from Khloe herself. She tweeted repeated attacks at Jordyn Woods for the incident. Other members of the Kardashian family expressed their shock and disappointment at Jordyn, but none had a longterm devastating effect as much as Kylie Jenner’s reaction to her best friend’s ‘betrayal’.
Why are you lying @jordynwoods ?? If you’re going to try and save yourself by going public, INSTEAD OF CALLING ME PRIVATELY TO APOLOGIZE FIRST, at least be HONEST about your story. BTW, You ARE the reason my family broke up!
— Khloé (@khloekardashian) March 1, 2019
That the betrayal was just a kiss was not enough to welcome Jordyn back into the Kardashian fold. And although she and her best friend Kylie Jenner, who was hurt the most by her actions, have been talking their issues out, a reunion seems unlikely. The two of them have followed each other again on Instagram, after unfollowing each other when the scandal broke.
In the meantime, the Hollywood socialite has moved on to other friendships, with the rapper, Megan Thee Stallion, and singer, Normani. And although the truth is tamer than what was originally reported, the Kardashian family has chosen to cut off all relationships with Jordyn – business and personal. Jordyn wasn’t the only one the Kardashians broke up with. Khloe also ended her relationship with Tristan Thompson, although they still remain co-parent of their daughter.
Who is Jordyn Woods?
She was born on the 23rd of September 1997 in Los Angeles, California. There is no concrete information regarding her education, but we know she began modeling when she was six years old, marking her first appearance as a model for the Ford Modeling Agency.
When her parents relocated to Calabasas in California, Jordyn Woods was thirteen years of age, and it was in that year that the course of her life changed. Shortly after the move, Jordyn met Kylie Jenner, one of the sisters in the Kardashian-Jenner family.
The two hit it off and quickly became friends, with their relationship lasting through their teenage years to adulthood.
Jordyn Woods Might Pursue a Career in Music
While she has mostly made the news as the friend of the socialite, she has been able to build a decent brand of her own, starting from social media where she has built a considerable following of over 5 million followers across Instagram and Twitter.
The influence and popularity on social media was leveraged upon as she relaunched her modeling career which began at age six. She signed on to Wilhelmina International’s Curve, becoming part of the international modeling agency’s roster of plus-sized models.
With her beauty combined with her popularity, Jordyn Woods became one of the most sought-after plus-sized models in the country, and she also became a voice for body positivity. This helped her become the ambassador of Lovesick, a fashion company dedicated to catering to plus-sized women. As an entrepreneur, Jordyn is also the owner of a clothing line, SECNDNTURE, launched in August 2018.
On television, Jordyn Woods has made appearances on her best friend’s show, Life of Kylie and guest appearances on the central show of the Kardashian reality television empire, Keeping up with the Kardashians.
Recently, an appearance on the hit show, The Masked Singer, has led to considerations of a music career by the model/socialite. She was the Kangaroo in the third season of the show, and her singing proved a hit to fans of the show. While her performance has led to rumors of Jordyn starting a music career, she has yet to commit to the career. However, do not be surprised when you find a track with the model’s name on your next Spotify playlist.
Rolling with the Kardashians Made Her Some Money
Through her closeness to Kylie Jenner and her ventures and accomplishments as a model, Jordyn Woods has an estimated net worth of $6 million. Most part of her wealth is tied to the Kardashians. She appeared on the Kardashian shows and was part of the makeup line by Kylie Jenner.
Through her past relationship with Kylie, a makeup line, Kylie x Jordyn, was launched in 2018. The line consisted of products like eyeshadow palettes, lipsticks, gloss, and highlighter. While we know that Jordyn Woods most definitely made some money off the multiple collaborations, it is difficult to say how much precisely came into the socialite’s account.
On the other hand, we know the makeup and cosmetics business has been great for Kylie Jenner. A year before Kyle x Jordyn launched, she made $330 million via her company, Kylie Cosmetics. Since then, her wealth has grown, enough to become the youngest billionaire in the world with a $1 billion net worth.
Her Mother is a PR Guru
Jordyn Woods has spent the majority of her life around famous people, and it can all be traced back to her parents. The identity of her father is unknown, but he is known to have been a sound engineer. Her mother, Elizabeth Woods, is the owner of a public relations company, Mixed Image Media. She is also a photographer and brand manager. Jordyn suffered the loss of her father to cancer in 2017.
The combination of the dynamics of their profession meant Jordyn Woods spent the bulk of her childhood around famous names, a fact that eventually led her to meet Kylie Jenner.
