The Khloe Kardashian-Tristan Thompson-Jordyn Woods Scandal Just Got Even Messier
The Khloe Kardashian-Tristan Thompson-Jordyn Woods saga has just taken another turn. On Friday, March 1, Woods appeared on Jada Pinkett Smith’s Facebook Watch show, Red Table Talk, to address the rumors surrounding her and Thompson, the now-ex-boyfriend of Kardashian, who is the older sister of Woods’ BFF Kylie Jenner. (Yes, this is as messy as it sounds.) Immediately afterward, Kardashian responded on Twitter — and she was not happy.
Woods told Pinkett Smith, a close family friend whose son Jaden introduced Woods to Jenner, her version of what happened with Thompson, who, it should be noted, has a history of being unfaithful. She said that on February 17, she went to dinner with friends before heading to a bar, where Thompson happened to be hanging out. “I was minding my business, dancing, drinking,” she recalled. “Tristan was there he was doing his own thing — that was it.”
As things at the bar started to wind down, she and her friends joined a group of people heading to Thompson’s house. At the time, she said, she was comforted by the fact that she was going to what felt like “a safe environment.” But she now says that was a mistake.
“That’s my first step where I went wrong. [I wasn’t thinking about] how I would feel if someone close to me is hanging out at my ex’s house or [with] the father of my child,” she told Pinkett Smith. “I didn’t think about that. That’s the first part of the problem. I should have gone home after the party. I shouldn’t even have been there.”
She then shared what she remembers of the party and her interaction with Thompson. “Never once was I giving him a lap dance, making out with him, sitting all over him,” she 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.”
She did confirm, however, that she stayed at Thompson’s until 6am. “In my life, in my world, it makes sense. Two nights before, I had been on kind of a partying binge,” she explained. “That wasn’t the first place I stayed until six in the morning. There was always somebody there while I was there. Even up until the moment that I left, there were people there. I finally look outside and I’m like, ‘Look the sun’s coming up. I need to take myself home.'”
It’s here, she said, where “the story gets tricky.” According to Woods, who told Pinkett Smith that she was drunk but “not beyond the point of recollection,” Thompson kissed her as she was leaving. “It was like a kiss on the lips, but no tongue kiss, no making out. Nothing,” she said, adding that she was “in shock.”
She left immediately afterward and, later that morning, spoke with both Jenner and Kardashian. “I had talked to Khloé and she asked me what was going on, if everything was fine. In my head, in trying to forget that part of the story, I was just like, ‘No, he was chilling, everything was okay. There were girls there but he wasn’t all over the girls,'” she recalled. “I was honest about being there but I wasn’t honest about the actions that had taken place.”
Asked if she had apologized to Kardashian since, Wood said she “did as much apologizing as I could do, over the phone, over text.” She also offered to take a lie detector test. But she told Pinkett Smith she is “not the reason that Tristan and Khloé are not together. 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.”
Kardashian — who had been relatively quiet about the scandal before Friday, save for a few cryptic quotes on social media — took issue with that particular comment on Twitter. She accused Woods of lying and wrote, “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!”
She later clarified, “Tristan is equally to blame but Tristan is the father of my child. Regardless of what he does to me I won’t do that to my daughter. He has been addressing this situation PRIVATELY. If Tristan were to lie publicly about what conspired, then yes I would address him publicly as well.”
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!

Whatever the truth is, there’s no denying that this is a sad situation for everyone involved.
