Jordyn Woods broke her silence about those Tristan Thompson hookup rumours — but Khloé Kardashian isn’t buying it, slamming the former family friend in a scathing tweet.
Kylie Jenner’s best friend appeared on Jada Pinkett-Smith’s Red Table Talk and gave a tearful apology for her actions, but claimed nothing happened other than a “kiss” initiated by Tristan.
However, her interview has elicited an angry response from Khloé, who Tweeted that Jordyn saying, “BTW, You ARE the reason my family broke up!”
She added that she is not letting Tristan — who “is equally to blame” — off the hook, but that he has addressed the situation in private.
During her interview, 21-year-old Jordyn brought it back to the night of the incident on Sunday, Feb. 17. She said she went out in LA with friends where she saw Tristan, the father of Khloé’s 10-month old daughter True, at a club, but he was “doing his own thing.” When the lights came on, she and her group of girlfriends all went back to Tristan’s house for an afterparty.
“We’re all dancing and we’re all drinking, we’re all enjoying the time and I’m not thinking, ‘I shouldn’t be here.’ And that’s my first step where I went wrong,” Jordyn explained. “And how I would feel if someone close to me is hanging at my ex’s house or the father of my child – I didn’t think about that. That’s the first part of the problem… I shouldn’t even have been there.”
While at Tristan’s house, Jordyn clarified, “Never once was I giving him a lap dance, making out with him, sitting all over him — it’s just, we’re all together, we’re in a group. Never once did [Tristan and I] leave the public area.”
Jordyn got very specific about where she was sitting at one point, which was on the arm of a chair next to Tristan with her legs draped over him. “There’s no way it would look like a lap dance, but I could see why people would say ‘they’re getting cozy,'” she admitted.
The former Good American model said Tristan never tried to make a move on her throughout the night, “Never anything intimate… it was just an innocent time.” But “because there’s so much history involved, I wasn’t thinking… I take full responsibility for that.”
Jordyn “understands why” people would think something happened — after all, she left Tristan’s house around 7 am — but said, “in my life, in my world it makes sense” she’d be there that long, adding that she’d been on “kind of a partying binge” recently. She said there were people at Tristan’s house up until the moment she left, but added, “this is where the story gets tricky.”
“I allowed myself to be in that position, I allowed myself to be there. I never was belligerently drunk to where I can’t remember what happened,” she said, seemingly slamming reports that claimed her excuse to the Kardashians about the incident was she was blackout drunk. However, Jordyn admits she “was drunk, not tipsy.”
“On the way out, he did kiss me,” Jordyn admitted. “It was like a kiss on the lips, no tongue kiss, no making out… I don’t think he’s wrong either because I allowed myself to be in that position… I was in shock… I was like ‘hmm, let me just pretend that didn’t happen.'”
Jordyn went home and said she talked to both Kylie and Khloé. “I was honest about being there, but I wasn’t honest about the actions that had taken place,” she stated. “I just knew how much turmoil was going on [with Khloé and Tristan] that I was like, ‘Let me not just throw more fuel on the fire.’ I know I was trying to protect Khloé’s heart. She doesn’t deserve this either.”
“I’m no home wrecker,” a visibly emotional Jordyn continued. “I would never try to hurt someone’s home especially someone that I love and someone who has a beautiful daughter. I would never try to steal someone’s man. I don’t need your situation. I just hurt so many more people by not telling the truth.”
“I know I’m not the reason that Khloé and Tristan aren’t together,” Jordyn emphatically stated. (In April 2018, the Cleveland Cavaliers player was caught in a cheating scandal days before Khloé gave birth.) “Now this situation may have made it harder for her to want to be with him and I understand that, but I know I’m not the reason.” (Khloé disagrees, but more on that below.)
“Did you sleep with Tristan?” Jada bluntly asked.
“Never,” Jordyn replied. “Never a thought, never a consideration, never happened and never will… there’s been no relationship, no communication, no plans on meeting up.”
Jordyn said she has talked to Kylie since everything went down and gave her a heads up she was going to appear on Red Table Talk. “I think at this point it’s gone too far and enough is enough,” she said. “When the safety of the people I love is in jeopardy I have to speak.”
As for talking to Khloé, Jordyn claimed she’s “spoken a little bit with her.”
“I let her know I’m willing to do whatever it takes for her peace of mind, not for my image, not for my career,” Jordyn said.
“You do understand from her point of view… this could be a really tough one to swallow,” Jada noted.
“Attach me to a lie detector whatever it is, I need the people involved to know the truth. I’m willing to take full responsibility,” Jordyn replied. “I’m just asking for you to hear me.”
Jordyn — who stated this whole thing was not a publicity stunt for the new season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians – claimed she apologised to Khloé. “I did as much apologising as I could do over the phone, over text, and until I get the opportunity to talk face to face… I offered as much as I could.”
She added, “In the process of her processing, I can’t see my family get hurt anymore so that’s why I had to break my silence. I’ve been respectful through this whole thing… and I’ve still held my dignity.”
