Jordyn Woods On Tristan Thompson Cheating Scandal Fallout: ‘I Never Want to See Anyone Hurt’

Jordyn Woods is clearing some things up about her involvement in the Tristan Thompson cheating scandal, revealing in a new interview how she handled the situation after it happened. She makes no apologies, other than remarking that “s**t happens,” but does admit she would “never want to see anyone hurt.” The hookup with Thompson earlier this year ended with a falling out with her bestie Kylie Jenner and her family — including, of course, Khloe Kardashian, who Thompson was dating at the time.

Woods explained what happened with Thompson

In her new interview with Cosmopolitan UK, Woods discussed her claim that Thompson kissed her on the way out of his house and explained what she felt afterward.

She explained: “I didn’t know how to feel. I was like, ‘That didn’t just happen.’ I [told him] ‘I need to go.’ I was leaving already so I walked out immediately. I got in the car. I was in shock.”

She initially had to get her bearings and talked with her mom and family since she wasn’t sure what to do. Woods noted: “You know that saying, ‘I feel so alone in a room full of people’? I went through a phase of thinking, ‘I’m going to isolate myself, because I don’t know how I feel. I don’t know what the right thing to do is.’”

Why Woods shut out the Kardashian-Jenners

Woods explained why it took some time to share what happened with the Kardashian-Jenners, noting, “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? How can I make things right with myself, with God and with my relationships?”

She added: “It took some time off in order for me to have a level head on how I should react.”

‘S**t happens’

While Woods took a lot of heat over what happened, she said she doesn’t “believe in clapping back, or reacting out of emotion.” She admitted: “I could have handled this a million different ways, but I just went with what felt the most natural to me.”

Was it the right call for her? She seems to accept that sometimes “s**t happens” and has some regrets, but offers no apology.

Woods noted: “Would I ever have wanted this to happen? Never. But s**t happens. 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.”

The fallout did cause her to see how the rumors were playing out online, as she noted that it was “addictive to look on the internet,” but it was pretty unhealthy as well.

She shared: “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.”

She’s hopeful that she and Jenner can reconcile

When asked about whether she and Jenner will ever be friends again, Woods seemed optimistic, noting, “I love her. That’s my homie.”

She shared: “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.”
