Keeping Up With the Kardashians recently brought fans along for the ride of the whole Jordyn Woods and Tristan Thompson cheating scandal, sharing how Khloe Kardashian discovered Thompson’s infidelity. It turns out there may have been more going on between Woods and Thompson before the whole thing blew up, however.
Larsa Pippen claims there’s more to the story
The cheating scandal played out on KUWTK, leading to Kardashian and Thompson splitting up, and it appeared that Kardashian was moving on and putting it behind her but, according to Larsa Pippen, there was more to the story.
Pippen first shared the details of the cheating incident, as Kim Kardashian was seen on KUWTK explaining how she heard about Woods and Thompson hooking up.
Kim explained: “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.”
Kourtney wasn’t surprised
Pippen had a bit more to share about what happened, however, explaining during a June 24 interview with Jason Lee on his podcast Hollywood Unlocked [UNCENSORED] that there was more history between Woods and Thompson.
According to PEOPLE, Pippen explained that Lee called her to give her a heads up before publishing the first report that Woods and Thompson hooked up at a party. Pippen explained that Kim didn’t believe her at first, but Kourtney Kardashian did.
She shared: “I called Kim. She didn’t believe me — she was like, ‘No way. There’s no way.’ Then we called Kourtney and Kourtney was like, ‘Yeah, I believe it.’”
It turns out that Kourtney wasn’t that surprised about the hook up, Pippen noted, “because there were other situations where [Jordyn and Tristan] were in the same room together and it was like, a weird feeling. And Kourtney was in that room.”
Were Khloe and Thompson dating when the cheating scandal news broke?
Interestingly, it came out after the KUWTK finale that, despite the devastating cheating rumors, things between Kardashian and Thompson weren’t in a good place when he hooked up with Woods.
A source told PEOPLE: “When the Jordyn drama happened, Khloe and Tristan were not in a proper relationship. They had not been for weeks. They didn’t even spend Valentine’s Day together, which was right before he messed around with Jordyn.”
The source added that Khloe hoped she and Thompson would reconcile for their daughter, True, with the source sharing: “But this doesn’t mean that it was completely over for Khloe.”
The insider continued: “It was very difficult for her to find out about Tristan and Jordyn. But this is what made her realize that Tristan would never change. It was heartbreaking for her.”
The source added that Kardashian “always hoped there was a way things could work out because that’s what she wanted for True. She wanted True to live with both her parents.”
