Kylie Jenner Gave Her BFF Jordyn Woods $10K for This Heartbreaking Reason
Kylie Jenner may be known as one of the most famous sisters in the world, as well as one of the most successful young celebs in the biz — sneaks, sunnies and (WTF) style, anyone? — but she’s also a super supportive friend: She even helped her assistant’s fiancé propose! If you follow King Kylie on Instagram, you’ll likely have seen her bestie, Jordyn Woods, pop up from time to time posing with her famous friend. And while the two are usually all glitz and glam, things have taken a sorrowful turn, which is why Kylie just donated $10,000 to her gal.
Last week, on January 18, Jordyn’s father, John Woods, passed away after an incredibly brief battle with cancer.

Jordyn shared the sad news via Instagram with a pic of her father and the message, “Last night Heaven got another angel. My Daddy. Just two short weeks ago he was diagnosed with cancer and by that time it was too late. I appreciate everyone’s kind words and it means the world to me. It still doesn’t feel real. Forever and Always 🏍❤️.”
She also shared a pic of her family with the simple yet lovely caption, “Our Angel.”
Because John’s illness and passing was so unexpected, the family set up a GoFundMe page with Jordyn’s mother, Elizabeth, revealing, “This hit us from nowhere. We are emotionally, mentally and financially impacted and are still not aware of how this devastating loss will truly impact our family. As we begin to plan for John’s services, we are still saddled with a portion of his medical expenses.”
With the family is asking for help to cover their unexpected costs, one person who was ready and willing to step in was Jordyn’s BFF, Kylie Jenner. The reality star, cosmetics mogul and A+ friend donated $10,000, along with the touching message, “I love you guys so much.”
She also took to Instagram to send love to her bestie saying, “My Fire Ox, My Brother, My Soul Sister. Give Jordy & her family some support and prayers right now. I love you the long way @jordynwoods. The other half of me…When you cry I cry.” *Sniffle*
