Jordyn Woods Breaks Her Silence In A Tell-All Interview
Ladies and gentleman (and all those outside and in-between), the tea has officially been spilled around the whole Jordyn Woods/Tristan Thompson saga and we are frothing it.
Jordyn Woods - who was supposedly the reason behind Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson's breakup - has told her side of the story to Jada Pinkett-Smith on her show, Red Table Talk.
Here's a bit of a backstory:
While Khloe's baby daddy Tristan Thompson has been exposed for cheating on her in the past (including when she was pregnant with their unborn child!), he went one step too far, by cheating again, but this time with her younger sisters BEST FRIEND.
TMZ reported that Khloe had dumped Tristan after she found out her baby daddy allegedly cheated on her with Kylie Jenner's best friend, Jordyn Woods.
Apparently Tristan flew into Los Angeles to spend Valentine's Day with Khloe and their daughter True, but then on Saturday night he hit up Delilah nightclub in WeHo, where he snuggled up with Kylie's BFF Jordyn.
As you might know, 21-year-old Jordyn is close friends with Will Smith and his wife Jada. Woods' late father worked on the Fresh Price of Bel-Air with Smith, and apparently, their son Jaden Smith is the primary reason Jordyn is best friends with Kylie Jenner, as he introduced them. Crazy, I know.
So, let's begin with a step-by-step walkthrough of this explosive interview...
It starts with Jordyn asking Jada if she could set the record straight about the affair. She obliged, and has let Jordyn go through the events of 'that' night.
"Sunday night I went to dinner with some friends, I went to this bar afterwards, there was a party going on. Tristan was there, he was doing his own thing. Normal LA culture, when you’re young, you’re at a party and it ends early, you go to a house after. The group of girls are like 'we’re going to a house'. On the way out they say it’s Tristan’s house. And I’m like that’s okay, it feels like a safe environment. I’d rather it be his house than a random stranger. He didn’t even personally invite me there."
Jordyn explains that she didn't feel weird about being there, but believes that was probably her first mistake.
"We’re all dancing, we’re all drinking and I’m not thinking 'I shouldn’t be here. And that’s my first step where I went wrong. And how I would feel if someone close to me is hanging at my ex’s house, the father of my child... I didn’t think about that and that’s the first part of the problem. I should have gone home after that party. I shouldn’t have even been there."
She then downright slams the rumours that emerged from the party.
"Never once was I giving him a lap dance, making out with him, sitting all over him. We’re all together we’re in a group. Never once did we leave the public area, go to a bedroom, go to a bathroom. It’s crazy to me that anyone says there was a lap dance involved."
While it was all seemingly innocent, Jordyn explains that she was sitting on the arm of the chair Tristan was sitting on, with her legs over his legs. Once again, she reiterates that it's all 100% innocent.
"In my head this is innocent. We’re all chilling – there’s no way it would look like a lap dance, but I could see how people could say 'oh they’re getting cozy'. My butt was never sitting on him but my legs were dangling down so I put them down onto the bottom of his legs."
She's then asked why she left Tristan's house at 7am. Suspicious, huh?
"There was always someone else there when I was there. Even until the moment that I left. I looked outside and I’m like 'Look the sun’s coming up. I need to take myself home.' I tell everyone that I’m leaving, I tell Tristan that I’m leaving and he’s like 'Are you sure? It’s fine you can be safe here.'"
Now things are starting to get juicy!
"This is where the story gets tricky. I feel like I can’t point fingers. And I can’t say 'You did this' because I allowed myself to be in that position. I allowed myself to be there. I was never belligerently drunk to where I can’t remember what happened. I was drunk, I was not tipsy. I was drunk but I was not beyond the point of recollection. On the way out, he did kiss me."
THEY KISSED! But... what kind of kiss?
"No passion, no nothing on the way out. It was like a kiss on the lips, no tongue kiss, no making out, nothing. I don’t think that he’s wrong either because I allowed myself to be in that position. I didn’t know how to feel. I was like 'That didn’t just happen.' I was leaving already so I just walked out immediately after. I was like 'Hmm, let me pretend that didn’t just happen.'"
But why did Tristan do that?
"I’m there until the sun’s coming up… maybe he’s just like 'I’ll shoot my shot'"
Jordyn admits that she wasn't entirely honest to Khloe and Kylie about what happened.
"I went home, I talked to Kylie and Khloe in the morning and I told them I was there. I had talked to Khloe and she asked me what was going on, was everything fine. And in my head of trying to forget that part of the story I was like like 'No he was chilling, everything was okay. There were girls there but he wasn’t all over the girls'. I was honest about being there but I wasn’t honest about the actions that had taken place... I just knew how much turmoil was going on and I was like let me not just throw more fuel on the fire. I know I was trying to protect Khloe's heart"
Did she just confirm that there was drama going on prior to the incident?
Jordyn then starts to get teary when talking about Khloe.
"She doesn’t deserve this, either. People have even dehumanised her in this situation to where they can’t feel for her. And it’s not fair that she has to deal with this either. The last thing I wanted to do was be that person. I’m no home wrecker, I would never try to hurt someone’s home, especially someone who I love. Who has a beautiful daughter. I would never try to steal someone’s man. I don’t need your situation. I really just hurt so many more people by not telling the truth.
I know I’m not the reason that Khloe and Tristan are not together. Now this situation may have made it harder to want to be with him and I understand that, and I know I’m not the reason."
She then claims she never slept with Tristan, nor had a month-long affair with him as various media outlets have reported.
"I Never [slept with him]. Never a thought, never a consideration, never happened. And never will I. Attach me to a lie detector, whatever it is. Just to clarify there has been no communication with Tristan, no relationship over time, there’s been no relationship. No communication, no plans on meeting up, no conversation, nothing.
"This story that didn’t have to be what it was, turned into the biggest scandal and the biggest betrayal of the year. The media are putting their focus on a young woman who made a mistake, and not a mistake that deserved a public crucifixion. It could have been dealt with internally."
She explains that she wanted to tell her side of the story due to the vilification of her, and her family, in the media.
"The first few days were the hardest, I couldn’t eat, I didn’t look at my phone. I just wanted to sleep and hope that this would go away. Every day was a new headline... people were saying things like 'your father deserved to die'. And I don’t think I deserve that. If I was a weak person, I would have hurt myself. My brother can’t go to work, my sister can’t go to school, she’s 12 years old. I’m not here to play the victim, I’m here to take responsibility. When I was asked what happened that night, I didn’t tell the truth to the people that I loved. Not because of malicious intent, but just because I was just scared."
So, is there anything Jordyn was change about what happened?
"I would not have gone with those girls to an afterparty... And if I would have told the truth from the beginning: 'I was there, we were drunk, this happened'. I wouldn’t be here today. I got caught up in the lifestyle."
And, her relationship with her ex-BFF Kylie?
"I have talked to Kylie and I told her I was coming [here] today. I think at this point it’s gone too far and enough is enough and when the safety of the people I love is in jeopardy, I have to speak. I have spoken a little bit with Khloe. I’ve let her know that I am willing to do whatever it takes for her peace of mind, not for my image, not for my career because thats already something on its own. This is now for peace of mind so you know there’s no malicious intent. 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. I’m not asking for people to like me, I’m not asking for you to forgive me overnight, I’m just asking you to hear me."
But has she actually apologised to Khloe?
"I did as much apologising as I could do over the phone, over text. Whatever makes her feel better is what I want. I’ve been respectful through this whole thing, I haven’t been commenting back. I’ve even been bullied by people who the week before were telling me they loved me. I get to see everyone’s true colours now. You’ve got my number, you could have sent me a mean text, but everything’s [on] social now. So I haven’t clapped back."
