Jordyn Woods and Kylie Jenner Attended the Same Party. Here’s What Went Down
Ending a longstanding friendship is never easy. Especially when it takes place in front of the whole world. But, Kylie Jenner and Jordyn Woods have managed to go there separate ways in a pretty amicable manner considering what caused the split.
After the initial media storm surrounding the broken friendships, things seemed to cool down and the girls went back to living their normal lives.
Though the two appear to have gotten over their beef, they still haven’t typically shown up to the same events, despite traveling in similar circles.
But that changed Friday when a mutual friend had a birthday party and both girls wanted to attend.
What happened at the birthday party?
On Friday night, Anastasia Karanikolaou hosted her 21st birthday party at Bootsy Bellows in L.A. Woods was nervous to go, but had her longtime friend Jaden Smith with her as backup.
“[Kylie and Jordyn] both were there to celebrate their mutual friend’s birthday and knew the other would be present,” a source close Woods told HollywoodLife. “It’s a huge reason why Jordyn went, was because Jaden was there with her.”
“Jordyn felt comfortable going because she knew a lot of people would be there and Jaden wouldn’t leave her side,” the source continued. “Jordyn wouldn’t have gone without [Jaden] and she knew this day would come. They all run in the same social circles.”
This wasn’t the first time that Smith had helped Woods navigate through her broken friendship.
“Jaden Smith has been so supportive of Jordyn Woods and there for her constantly,” the source said. “When Jordyn ran into [Kendall Jenner] at Coachella unexpectedly, Jaden was the one there to make sure everyone was OK. It’s a little hard and uncomfortable for him just given the nature of the situation, however, he’s happy to be friends with everyone.”
But according to the source, both women were cordial at Friday’s party.
They are “both mature adults who are OK with this,” the source said.
What happened when Tristan Thompson showed up?
At some point in the night, basketball player Tristan Thompson showed up to the party as well, which made the situation more stressful as he was the catalyst that sparked the end of the friendship.
Thompson reportedly left soon after he arrived.
“For Kylie, seeing Jordyn is less stressful than seeing Tristan honestly,” the source said. “At the end of the day, everyone knows his intent to hurt [Khloé Kardashian] is what caused all of this and he took advantage of Jordyn. Having said that, that doesn’t forgive Jordyn for what she did.”
What happened between Jenner and Woods?
Jenner and Woods had been friends since they were children. They were so close, in fact, that Woods was even living with Jenner. But all of that changed when reports came out that Woods had hooked up with Thompson, who, at the time, was dating Jenner’s sister, Khloe.
Eventually, Woods went on Jada Pinkett Smith’s Red Table Talk to clear the air and reveal that Thompson actually kissed her. Though she apologized to Khloe and everyone involved, too much damage had been done and the friendship ended.
