Why Will Smith's family is in the centre of the Jordyn Woods cheating scandal.

Set your alarms, because Jordyn Woods’ interview about that absolutely wild cheating scandal will go live very early Saturday morning AEDT.

Jordyn teased the interview in a live stream on Instagram earlier this week, showing herself walking on to the set of Jada Pinkett Smith’s Facebook show Red Table Talk on Tuesday.

If you are confused about why the heck Jada is getting involved in the Jordyn/Kardashian drama, it turns out Jordyn’s family and the Smiths have known each other for decades.

The show is also hosted by Jada’s mum Adrienne Banfield-Norris and Jada and Will’s 18-year-old daughter Willow. It might be that 21-year-old Jordyn sees the show as a safe space to tell her side of the story.

According to Cosmopolitan, the links between Jordyn’s family and the Smiths goes back much further than her friendship with Kylie Jenner.

Jordyn’s late dad John Woods was a sound engineer who met Will Smith at work in the 90s. Their families have been close ever since with Jordyn and Jaden Smith growing up as best friends.

Jordyn even calls Will and Jada “uncle” and “aunt”.

Now, to make this all a whole lot more awkward, the Kardashians are also close friends with the Smiths.

Kendall and Kylie are close with Jaden and Kendall and Willow hang out a lot as the faces of Stuart Weitzman.

Oh. And Kris Jenner and Jada are pretty tight too.

Their friendship runs ~so deep~ that Jada has promoted Kris' cosmetic line and Jordyn and Kylie's makeup collab (because the Kardashians need all the promo they can get obviously) on Instagram in the past, as well as celebrated Kylie's Forbes cover that named her the "youngest-ever self-made billionaire" by saying she was "teary, proud and smiling".

Anyway, it's fitting that the Smiths are in the middle of all this because they are the reason Kylie and Jordyn met in the first place. Yeah, this is all down to Jaden Smith.

"She's known Jaden, like, her whole life, and I met him in middle school," Kylie explained in a video Q&A about their friendship.

With all this in mind, we have to ask: Can Jada Pinkett Smith remain impartial during this VERY IMPORTANT interview? Will she take a side? Will the Kardashians banish the entire Smith family? Will Jordyn move in with the Smiths and live in their guest house instead?

WE MUST KNOW.

TMZ reckoned her intentions were "to create a healing between Jordyn and Khloe" and to give Jordyn a platform to tell her story.

It is also reported that Jordyn - as with everyone in the Kardashians inner-circle - has signed an iron-clad NDA which could limit what she talks about and prohibits her from disclosing details about the family...

No matter, hit the supermarket tonight - you're going to want to start your Saturday morning with popcorn in hand.
