Who is Jordyn Woods, the woman at the centre of the Tristan Thompson/Khloe Kardashian scandal?

Warning: If you don’t give a damn about the Kardashian-Jenners whatsoever, this is definitely not a post for you.

But if you have a vague interest coupled with severe FOMO because you don’t fully understand what’s actually happened this week, do read on.

Ahem.

You’ve probably noticed the name “Jordyn Woods” being thrown around a lot today in reference to the Tristan Thompson and Khloe Kardashian ~cheating scandal~ the entire world is becoming increasingly involved in for reasons largely unknown.

And, up until now, you might’ve been doing a very good job of pretending you actually know who she is.

“Ohh, JORDYN. How could she do such a thing?” you said to your die-hard Kardashian fan colleague with all the Year 8 drama skill you could muster.

Don’t worry – we get it.

The Kardashian-Jenner world is a confusing place. There are… a lot of them.

And the cheating scandals seem to happen often.

But there’s a reason this one is particularly scandalous.

Jordyn is Khloe’s little sis Kylie’s BEST FRIEND.

They even LIVE TOGETHER.

(Well, not anymore, apparently).

Yikes.

Because we’re here to help, and by help we mean scour every corner of the internet for information about psuedo-celebrities who have literally nothing to do with us nor will impact our lives in any way, and we’ve… done just that.

Here’s what we know:

So, who is Jordyn Woods?

According to the internet, it seems 21-year-old LA-born Jordyn Woods is known for little more than being “Kylie Jenner’s best friend”, which… kinda sucks as an identifier tbh.

Dig a little further and you'll find out she's also closely linked to the Smith family.

As in Will and Jada:

It turns out they're old family friends, and she even calls Will "Uncle". A few years back, rumours circulated that Jaden Smith and Jordyn were actually dating when the two were photographed together.

Interesting.

If you're a Keeping Up with the Kardashians fan, you've probably seen her pop up a few times, as well as on spinoff reality show Life of Kylie.

But what does she... do?

Like many figures in the Kardashian world, the answer to this is fairly ambiguous.

But it appears Jordyn is quite a successful plus-size model and body positivity advocate on Instagram. She's represented by Wilhelmina Models, with jobs for ASOS and a brand by Torrid called Lovesick under her belt.

She was discovered on Instagram and is managed by her mother, Elizabeth Woods, a Los Angeles socialite and talent/brand manager at Mixed Image Media/PR.

She's also collaborated on makeup lines with Kylie and cult beauty brand Too Faced.

As of 2018, her net worth was $100,000.

How does she know the Kardashians?

The answer to this seems shrouded in uncertainty, but we've done our best. After all, how does anyone really know the Kardashians? And how did they become "the Kardashians"? And how long is a piece of string?

We do know she attended Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West's wedding in Italy in 2015, and that she met Kylie in Year 8. Here's the oldest pic of them together we could find:

We also know Jordyn's a member of the Good American squad, representing Khloe Kardashian’s clothing brand.

Some fans have suggested the pair met through the Smith family, which could explain things.

Kylie has been close with Will and Jada Smith's children Willow and Jaden for years, so yeah, that makes sense.

All we really know is that she appears in Jenner's Snapchat stories and Instagram posts regularly, and has lived with her for an undetermined amount of time.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

So now we know who Jordyn is, what the hell actually happened?

Let's get down to the juicy details, shall we?

According to ~sources~, the KarJenners found out Jordyn had reportedly "made out" with Khloe's partner, Cleveland Cavaliers player Tristan Thompson, over the weekend.

Given Jordyn's close relationship with the family, this was the final straw for Khloe, 34 - who has a daughter, True - with 27-year-old Tristan.

Tristan's infamous wandering eye was brought to light in a separate cheating scandal 10 months ago, so while this latest scandal hasn't come as a huge surprise... it's the issue of who he's cheated with that's really rocked the family this time. Eek.

“When they first started hearing on Monday that Tristan made out with Jordyn, no one really believed it,” one source told People. “That Tristan would be inappropriate, yes everyone knows that he can’t behave, but that Jordyn would make out with him, it first seemed like a made up rumour.”

Apparently, it all went down at a party at Tristan's house after the pair were seen hanging out at a bar in Santa Monica. Tristan invited the group back to his house for kick ons.

"Jordyn stayed at Tristan's house partying with him and his friends until the early hours of the morning, and they were very touchy," an eyewitness told E! News. "They sat together on the couch and were talking and cuddling for hours.

"They had chemistry the entire night and everyone could see it. You could tell they were into each other."

On Tuesday, TMZ and Hollywood Unlocked reported that Khloe and Tristan have split up.

US Weekly has also confirmed the split, with a source quoted as saying: "They aren't speaking."

And what's happening now?

According to People, Jordyn is now “moving back to her mum’s house," after being booted out by Kylie.

“It’s been a difficult time and she’s broken up about it. She’s heading home to be with her mum," a source told the publication.

In the ultimate burn, Kim K has now unfollowed her, as well as Tristan, from Instagram.

Ouch.

So there you have it: All you need to know about the woman at the centre of the Tristan Thompson-Khloe Kardashian cheating scandal.

Now off you go to the water cooler.

You're welcome.
