Jordyn Woods Compared Her Cheating Scandal Fallout to Cancer
Jordyn Woods has had a hellacious couple of months. She’s been the subject of widespread criticism and bullying on social media since February when news broke that she had allegedly made out with Khloé Kardashian’s then-boyfriend, Tristan Thompson.
Now, she’s opening up about the drama surrounding the scandal, telling Cosmopolitan UK that looking at the Internet became “cancerous” to her.
Woods is regretful
The model, 21, told the publication that she “never” wanted any of this to happen. “But sh** happens,” she explained. “And in the end, I never want to see anyone hurt; I would hate to be the reason for anyone’s pain. We all have to go to sleep with ourselves at night.”
Still, Woods couldn’t help but look at the reactions to the scandal online, calling them “cancerous” and “like a tumor.”
“It becomes addictive to look on the internet, to look at your name. When I would look at my name and see all of the things that people were saying, it became like a tumor. It became cancerous to me,” Woods continued.
But now she realizes that a lot of comments on social media are “bulls**t.” However, she warns that one post could “be the message that pushes that person off the ledge.”
She admits she didn’t know “what the right thing to do” was regarding the kiss
Fans will remember that Woods didn’t immediately come out and reveal what happened to the Kardashian-Jenners. In fact, she reportedly went on Red Table Talk to tell the story before even apologizing to Khloé — but there’s a reason for that.
According to the model, she was still trying to process the moment herself.
“I just need[ed] some time by myself to try to understand what [was] happening, why it [was] happening, and how am I going to react to this internally, you know?” she said. “How can I make things right with myself, with God and with my relationships? It took some time off in order for me to have a level head on how I should react.”
The comments echo Woods’ statement on Red Table Talk, in which she said she kept quiet “to protect Khloé’s heart.”
But unfortunately, her decision to keep quiet severed her relationship with the Kardashians and Jenners.
Woods is hopeful that she and her ex-BFF Kylie Jenner will make up
“I love her. That’s my homie,” she said of Jenner. “I hope everything falls into place and that we can all grow and build our relationships with our family and God and come back together one day and be stronger and happier.”
But a reconciliation might not happen any time soon. Jenner recently unfollowed Woods on Instagram, and she said in a clip from the upcoming season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians that she likes their separation.
“[Jordyn] was my security blanket. She lived with me. We did everything together,” Jenner explained to Khloé when asked whether she misses Woods. “I just felt like, ‘Oh, I have Jordyn. I don’t need anything else.’”
The makeup mogul went on to say that she’s realized “there’s a part of me that needed to grow without her” and that she’s come to grips with Woods’ absence in her life.
So we don’t know if Woods’ wish will ever come true. Stay tuned.
