New Details About The Tristan/Jordyn Scandal Were Finally Revealed On KUWTK
Way back in February of 2019, the internet was abuzz with rumors that Khloé Kardashian had officially split with her boyfriend Tristan Thompson because he was caught cheating with Jordyn Woods, AKA Kylie Jenner’s best friend.
The Kardashian-Jenner clan kept quiet through most of it, but now Keeping Up With The Kardashians has finally aired the scandal. These are all the juicy new details about what really went down between Tristan and Jordyn, and how the family pieced together the truth.
It Wasn’t The First Time He Cheated
When the Tristan/Jordyn scandal broke, fans weren’t exactly shocked since he had already been caught cheating before. Way back in April 2018, Tristan was seen in a club with another woman just days before Khloé gave birth to their daughter, True.
At the time, Khloé chose to stay with Tristan and try to “make their relationship work” for the sake of their family. She caught a lot of flack for it, but Khloé was adamant she was going to try and make it work.
Both Jordyn And Khloé Went Quiet When The Rumors Broke
When the allegations of Tristan and Jordyn hooking up started to swirl on the internet, we all knew it was a bad sign when most of the Kardashian-Jenner family and Jordyn all went quiet on social media.
The initial allegations claimed that Jordyn and Tristan were at a house party together, she was seen on his lap, and the pair were making out. Khloé ended things right away with Tristan, but it was Jordyn who was the first to speak out.
Jordyn Broke Her Silence First On The Red Table Talk
Less than a week after the allegations broke, Jordyn appeared on Jada Pinkett-Smith’s web show to tell her side of the story. Jordyn claimed “there was no lap dance involved” and that her legs were simply resting on the bottom of Tristan’s legs.
She also said the pair didn’t make out but that he kissed her on the lips on the way out and that “shocked her.” Most importantly, Jordyn claimed to have spoken to Khloé after, but held some details back to try and “protect Khloé’s heart.”
Khloé Claimed It Was All A Lie…Then Went Silent
After the Red Table Talk aired, Khloé broke her silence and took to Twitter to claim Jordyn was lying, and that she went public before actually talking to Khloé. The Kardashian also called out Jordyn for trying to put all the blame on Tristan. She said that both Tristan and Jordyn are the reason her family broke up.
After that, Khloé went silent on the topic, until finally, KUWTK aired the first of two episodes dedicated to the drama and it was filled with new shocking details.
Khloé Though She Was Pregnant When The Scandal Broke
The episode opened with a scene just two weeks before everything went down. Khloé was telling Kris and Kylie that she was feeling nauseous and had severe migraines, and was worried that she might be pregnant again. Khloé and Tristan’s daughter True wasn’t even a year old at the time of the pregnancy scare.
The result of the pregnancy test was negative, but showed that Khloé and Tristan were definitely still in an intimate relationship when the scandal went down.
It Was Kim’s Friend Who Broke The News
We then learned that it was Kim—not Khloé or Kylie—who found out about the Tristan/Jordyn scandal first. Kim’s friend Larsa Pippen called Kim and said, “I don’t even know if I should tell you this. Tristan and Jordyn were all over each other last night.”
Larsa wasn’t actually at the party but had been told the news by a reporter friend who was going to publish the story, and Larsa wanted the family to hear about it before the world did.
Kim Went On To Piece The Story Together With Her Sisters
It wasn’t long after Kim found out the news from Larsa that the story broke online. We got to see it all unfold when Kim, Khloé, Kortney, and Kylie all dialed into a group phone call.
On the call, Khloé told her sisters that she couldn’t reach Tristan because he was on a plane. She had managed to talk to Jordyn who confirmed she was at the party acting as Khloé’s “watchdog” but “couldn’t remember if they had kissed.”
Khloé Didn’t Buy It And Called Jordyn Again
While Khloé hung up to call Jordyn again, Kim and Kourtney talked to Kendall who was in complete shock. Kendall said what we were all thinking at first when she said “Jordyn?! She is the last person on the planet that I would’ve said would’ve done this.”
Kendall went on to say that if the rumors were true and Tristan kissed Jordyn and caught her off-guard, then Jordyn should have called Kylie immediately to tell her what happened before it got to this point.
Khloé Called Back With New Details That Left The Sisters Pretty Angry
Eventually, Khloé called her sisters back to confirm that Jordyn spilled the truth to her. Jordyn said that she and Tristan had “made out” but blamed him for making the first move. Jordyn also claimed she was being “naive” but notably didn’t actually apologize to Khloé.
After the truth came out, Kourtney said she was “shaking with fury” and Khloé admitted that it felt like her “heart is in my eyeballs.” Kylie was pretty speechless throughout the entire call.
Tristan Admitted It All To Khloé When She Called Him
Once Khloé finally got ahold of Tristan, she said that “there was nothing else he could do but confirm it.” Tristan apparently answered all of Khloé’s questions and got into all the gritty details.
According to Tristan, “everybody left the party and Jordyn stayed.” Then “she was sitting on his lap, they were all over each other, they were hands-y, they made out.” Needless to say, Khloé was pretty furious and said she just couldn’t understand his actions.
Tristan Was So Distraught He Threatened To Take His Life
Later in the episode, Khloé relayed some text messages between her a Tristan to Scott Disick. Khloé alleged that Tristan said, “I can’t stop thinking about you and the mess I’ve caused.” Even worse, when Khloé stopped responding to his text messages, Tristan apparently threatened to take his own life.
Khloé said she felt the text was just to get a reaction out of her, but told Scott she still made sure to get one of Tristan’s friends to check on him to make sure he was okay.
Kris Didn’t Hold Back With Her Opinions
While most of the sisters did their best to toe the line for Khloé’s sake, her momager Kris didn’t mince words. Speaking to Kim, Kris said “We know Tristan’s an a**hole who keeps repeating the same behavior. This will change [Kylie and Jordyn’s] friendship forever. If [Jordyn] would do this to one of us, she would do the same thing to Kylie.”
Obviously, Kris went straight into mom mode and is more focused on protecting her kids than forgiving someone else.
Kris Felt “Betrayed” By Jordyn
In a later testimonial, Kris told us that she felt especially betrayed by Jordyn because she considered her “another daughter.” Jordyn and Kylie had been best friends for years and Jordyn even served as a live-in babysitter and confidant for Kylie.
Kris said that “It’s hard to believe that Jordyn was involved in this, and I’m so disappointed in Tristan.” The momager made it clear that neither would be very welcome in the Kardashian-Jenner household anymore.
We Found Out What Kylie Said To Jordyn
In one scene from the KUWTK episode, we found out what happened in the first phone call between Kylie and Jordyn after the drama. Kylie told Khloé and Kim that she “called her and she [Jordyn] didn’t really say anything.”
Kylie also stood up for her sister and told Jordyn that “you weren’t thinking about True, not Khloé, not me. But you weren’t thinking about yourself either. Like, look what you did.” Kylie could obviously tell that Jordyn’s life going forward wasn’t going to be easy.
Kylie Even Said She Was Scared Of Jordyn
Kylie also told Khloé and Kim that she felt scared of Jordyn. Much like her mom Kris, Kylie couldn’t help but wonder if Jordyn would do the same thing to her. It didn’t help that when the drama broke there were rumors of trouble in paradise for Kylie and her boyfriend Travis Scott.
Kylie said she told Jordyn, “I’m, like, scared of you now. You’re capable of waking up the next morning with a smile on your face.”
Kim Looked At It From Jordyn’s Perspective
In one shocking scene, Kim actually played Devil’s advocate and looked at things from Jordyn’s perspective. During a conversation with Khloé and Kylie, Kim said that if she was in Jordyn’s shoes, she would have been on the doorstep “begging” to apologize to Khloé.
It was clear from the conversation that Jordyn did not apologize to Khloé or Kylie, and that she had avoided addressing the entire situation until confronted by the siblings about it.
Jordyn Started Downplaying Things When The News Broke
One of the final moments of the episode revealed that Jordyn had begun to backtrack on what she told Khloé originally. Khloé complained that Jordyn was not downplaying the entire situation. In a later call, Jordyn began to tell Khloé that “It wasn’t a big deal, it wasn’t intimate, it wasn’t sexual.”
That would align with the story Jordyn shared with Jada Pinkett Smith during the Red Table Talk one week after the news broke.
Jordyn Has Yet To Respond To The Episode
Jordyn has kept a pretty low profile since the news broke, but did break her silence once when the trailer for season 16 of KUWTK aired. The explosive trailer included a scene where Khloé yells “liar!” at her cell phone when dealing with the drama.
After the trailer aired, Jordyn simply said that “Everyone has their truth and their story, so you just go with it. Everyone has the right to speak their truth. Hopefully…the real me will shine.”
The Kardashian-Jenners Have Shunned Jordyn
Since the scandal broke in February, nearly every member of the Kardashian-Jenner family has removed Jordyn from their lives. The Jordyn-inspired lip kits from Kylie’s cosmetic brands were slashed to half price. Kylie claimed it to be a “coincidence,” but it happened the same week Jordyn had moved out of Kylie’s house.
Jordyn was also a member of Khloé’s Good American Good Squad, and even had a profile on her website. After the scandal, Jordyn’s page was taken down.
Jordyn Might Have Played Them At Their Own Game
While everyone is busy trying to piece the story together, Jordyn appears to be capitalizing from it all. She conveniently dropped her own clothing line just hours after the first part of the KUWTK finale aired. Jordyn took to Instagram and unveiled her collaboration with Boohoo.
Either someone at Boohoo is a marketing genius, or Jordyn learned from the best of the best thanks to her time with the Kardashian-Jenners. Only time will tell if it was the right move for Jordyn.
