One of the basic tenants of girl code is that you never pursue a relationship with your friend’s ex. Perhaps in the case of Jordyn Woods and Kylie Jenner’s friendship they should have added in the rule that you never seek out a relationship with your friend’s-sister’s-boyfriend either.
When Jordyn reportedly kissed Kylie’s sister’s man, their friendship tanked.
Kylie Jenner and Jordyn Woods were best friends
The two have been attached at the hip for years. Kylie has called Woods her sister, and professed her love in front of their thousands of followers. They’ve attended countless events in matching outfits and supported each other through all of life’s ups and downs. It was rare, even, to photograph one without the other.
Jenner has credited Woods with being there for her in some difficult moments, as well as some successful collaborations. The pair even have matching tattoos.
Woods is rumored to have hooked up with Khloe Kardashian’s boyfriend
Several months prior the story was released the Woods had been seen kissing Khloe Kardashian’s boyfriend, Tristan Thompson. Khloe, of course, is the sister to Woods’ best friend, Kylie.
Here’s why it was a big deal. Thompson also happens to be the father to Khloe Kardashian’s baby daughter, True. So this guy wasn’t just a random man, he was a big part of the Jenner/Kardashian family.
Likewise, Woods was treated like a member of the family as well. She and Kylie had long been inseparable and had been roommates for a very long time. The other Kardashian girls viewed her as simply another sister. Jordyn had a close bond with Kylie’s daughter Stormi too.
Khloe, understandably, didn’t take it well and accused Woods of being the reason that her family was broken up.
Jenner and Woods are no longer friends
In support of her family, Jenner decided to distance herself from Woods. Their friendship deteriorated quickly as the scandal went viral on social media.
Now, as Jenner’s Instagram features trips around the world with her new gal pal, Anastasia Karanikolaou, it seems like Woods has all but been forgotten. Jenner posted a bunch of photos from her recent trip to Turk and Caicos with a group of her closest friends.
Apparently, losing her best friend has allowed Jenner the opportunity to invest more time in other friendships.
“As sad as the Jordyn situation has been for Kylie, she has also been forced to make new friendships,” PEOPLE reports, “Some of the girls on her trip, used to be more like acquaintances, but they are now great friends.”
Jenner feels like splitting from Woods was a positive thing
Losing a friend is never an easy thing, especially when it happens for the whole world to watch. But, Kylie is used to being in the spotlight so it is no surprise that the young star has just been rolling with the punches.
On an episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians, Jenner details how she’s been feeling since her split with Woods. When sister Khloe asks her, pointedly, how she’s been feeling about losing her friend, Jenner admits that perhaps Jordyn was keeping her from fully embracing her whole life.
“She was my security blanket.” Jenner explained. “She lived with me, we did everything together. I just felt like, ‘Oh, I have Jordyn, I don’t need anything else’…I feel like there’s a part of me that needed to grow without her. And sometimes people are there for certain reasons and certain times of your life and not for others.”
Jenner is moving on and focusing on her other friendships now that Woods is no longer an essential part of her life. She has positive things to say about Jordyn and plenty to focus on including her new skincare launch and her daughter Stormi.
