Another celebrity relationship bites the dust. Khloe Jenner and Tristan Thompson’s relationship has gone up in flames. Like most Hollywood bonds, a juicy scandal is to blame. Once news of Thompson’s infidelity made it back to the Kardashian-Jenner clan, there was no salvaging the small family the young couple built.
But that wasn’t the only relationship floating in limbo. Kylie Jenner and Jordyn Woods would also have to re-evaluate their bond after the major betrayal. In fact, it shook Kylie up so much that she kept to herself for quite some time, just recently dropping her true feelings in the KUWTK finale.
Recap: The Tristan and Kardashian cheating scandal
By now, most people have a grasp on the dirt that went down between Thompson, Khloe, and Woods. Around Valentine’s Day, the Cleveland Cavaliers player was paying his now former lady love a visit. He also decided to host a secret party during that very same visit. One where he made guests have a hands-off policy with their phones or vacate the premises.
They were bewildered, that is until they caught Woods and Thompson locking lips. But that’s not all they did. Woods went back to a hotel with Thompson after the party and wasn’t seen leaving until the next morning.
“Tristan and Jordyn were all over each other last night.” – Family friend Larsa Pippen / KUWTK
The Kardashian sisters go into detective mode
The season finale of KUWTK gave fans a more in-depth look into how the sisters went about handling the scandal in real time. It all kicks off with Kim getting a phone call about the sordid news. Immediately, Kim, Khloe, Kylie, and Kourtney get down to piecing together the puzzle to find the truth.
“My friend Larsa called me to explain that a reporter that she knows was about to write a story that Jordyn and Tristan were at his home late-night or until 7 in the morning. They said they were like making out.” – Kim Kardashian
Kim admittedly didn’t believe the hype, but her denial couldn’t last forever. Khloe explains that she spoke with Woods, but she was obviously withholding information. She mentioned he tried to kiss her but refused to say whether or not the kiss happened. Talk about suspect. Sensing her hostility Khloe gives her a pass, allowing her to text her the truth. Woods says she’ll call back and goes MIA. Even more suspect.
Snooping around Woods didn’t help much, but once Khloe got to Thompson, she found out the ex-family friend was doing everything she could to downplay the cheating.
Kylie Jenner finally breaks her silence
When news of Thompson cheating on Khloe made it back to the Kardashian sisters they were all in complete denial. But after the dust dropped and reality settled in, they were livid. There was a max exodus with the entire crew unfollowing Woods on social media. Well, almost the whole crew. Kylie was understandably hesitant. After all, Woods was her ride or die.
Thanks to the most recent KUWTK episodes, fans finally know how the cosmetics mogul handled the situation. In the finale, Khloe admits she wasn’t surprised that Thompson was unfaithful, but Woods’ betrayal was just too much. Kylie chimes in that the first words she shared with her former best friend were that she was afraid of her.
“I called her and she didn’t really say anything. She was just, like, crying the whole time. And I was just telling her, ‘I’m, like, scared of you now. You’re capable of waking up the next morning with a smile on your face.'” – Kylie Jenner / BuzzFeed
She followed that up by saying, “You weren’t thinking about True, not Khloé, not me. But you weren’t thinking about yourself either. Like, look what you did.” Evident that while Kylie was concerned about her family, she also felt some way about Woods ruining her place amongst them. It’s clear there was some compassion, but it was the last statement that must have blown Woods out of the water.
“You can do whatever, but when it affects my family, me, then that’s when it’s a problem.” – Kylie Jenner
It looks like despite her close bond with her sister from another mister, Kylie was more than ready to side with her family on this one.
