Khloé Kardashian Addresses Whether Kylie Jenner and Jordyn Woods Can Be Friends

The Kardashian-Jenner sisters have done such a great job of launching themselves into the public eye that they have brought others into their orbit with them into the spotlight. Plenty of their friends have benefited from their time in the sisters’ vicinity, getting a boost to their own influence in the process.

Not everyone’s association with the Kardashian-Jenner family has been positive, however. Jordyn Woods has certainly been on the receiving end of a lot of criticism and drama because of her relationship with the sisters. 

Is the drama all water under the bridge? Rumors have long swirled that Khloé Kardashian has controlled whether or not Woods was “allowed” to be friends with Kylie Jenner after the dust settled, and Kardashian is ready to set the record straight.

Dramatic relationships have been a staple of the Kardashian-Jenner brand pretty much since its inception, but Kardashian’s relationship with Tristan Thompson has been filled with a lot of ups and downs even by the family’s roller coaster standard. The pair met in August 2016, and by the next month, they were vacationing together.

Things moved quickly, and by late 2016, the world knew that Kardashian was traveling to Ohio to be closer to the NBA player. In December 2016, Thompson’s ex-girlfriend gave birth to his child as Thompson and Kardashian made their relationship seriously Instagram official. 

The next year, Thompson was featured on Keeping Up with the Kardashians and by the end of the year, the couple was talking marriage and announced a pregnancy. In 2018, things took a turn for the dramatic. Thompson was embroiled in a cheating scandal just before the birth of his daughter was expected. Thompson was by Kardashian’s side when she gave birth to True, but the pair had a scandal to handle after.

They worked through that scandal, but in February 2019, another round of cheating rumors swirled, and this time they involved Kylie Jenner’s best friend Jordyn Woods. Kardashian and Thompson broke up.

Jenner and Woods had been close friends for years when the cheating scandal took the media by storm. When Thompson flew to LA to spend some time with Kardashian and their then-infant daughter, he ended up at a house party. Woods was also a guest in attendance, and witnesses said they couldn’t keep their hands off each other. Rumors even started that Woods and Thompson spent the night together with Woods allegedly spotted leaving a hotel room after staying with Thompson. 

Woods has since spoken out about how the scandal impacted her and what role she played in the infidelity. Saying she was in a “dark place” as she was dragged across headlines, Woods has reflected on her responsibility in the incident and tried to move on with her life.

Losing her friendship with Jenner while simultaneously taking a hit to her reputation was a double whammy that was hard to weather, but Woods has found new relationships and received some support from the public who believe Kardashian was too hard on Woods

The fallout from that scandal now feels like the distant past — especially since Kardashian and Thompson have made up and apparently rekindled their relationship. One casualty from the aftermath that remains, however, is Jenner’s friendship with Woods. The pair never did find their footing after the scandal, and many fans can’t let it go. 

When a KUWTK preview clip featuring Kim Kardashian West talking to Thompson about his current relationship status made its way to Instagram, one fan took to the comments to ask a question that’s on a lot of people’s minds. As BuzzFeed reports, the fan asked “Is Kylie allowed to be friends with Jordyn again?”

Kardashian took issue with the suggestion that she was managing her little sister’s friendships and responded to the comment personally: “Never once have I ever — and I mean EVER — told my sister who she can be friends with.” Her response suggests that should Jenner want to reconcile with Wood, Kardashian wouldn’t object.
