Who Is Kylie Jenner’s BFF Now That Jordyn Woods Is Out?

Kylie Jenner has been in the spotlight since she was ten years old when Keeping Up with the Kardashians first hit the airwaves. Growing up with so many eyes focused on her, it’s only natural that Jenner turns to the company of good friends in order to help her stay sane throughout all the tabloid craziness.

For years, Jenner’s best friend was Jordyn Woods — a model and an influencer. Sadly, following the unveiling of the recent cheating scandal, Woods is officially out of the Jenner inner circle. While Jenner hasn’t been able to really fill Woods’ role in her life yet, she has been hanging out with a longtime friend who might just be her new confidante.

Woods and Jenner first met when the two were very young, through mutual friend Jaden Smith. The two were inseparable for nearly a decade, with Woods making frequent appearances on Jenner’s social media accounts. She even lived on Jenner’s massive property in Calabasas, California.

Jenner has been crediting with boosting Woods’ career by collaborating with her on a Kylie Cosmetics makeup line. Woods even worked with Khloe Kardashian, Jenner’s older sister, modeling clothing for “Good American” denim line. It truly seemed as though nothing could break the two besties’ bond.

All that changed in the spring of 2019, when it was revealed that Woods had kissed Kardashian’s boyfriend Tristan Thompson. The news spread like wildfire online, with Kardashian and family friends lambasting Woods on social media. In short order, Woods was moved out of Jenner’s palatial home and cut off from the family.

Many fans assumed that when Woods betrayed the family by getting involved with Thompson, the damage between Woods and Jenner would be irreparable. Still, Jenner has seemingly harbored no resentment or ill will towards her former bestie, even though she has firmly sided with her sister throughout the entire scandal.

Recently, Jenner spoke out on an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, saying that the situation needed to happen “for a reason” and that for many years, Woods was her “security blanket.” Jenner also stated that she believes certain people are there for some seasons in life and not for others.

While she didn’t say that she will never communicate with Woods again, or that the two can never be friends again, for now, it seems as though Jenner is keeping her distance from her former pal.

With the absence of Woods, Jenner has turned to family and some other friends to spend her time with. She loves hanging out with her boyfriend, Travis Scott, and their young daughter, Stormi Webster.

She has also been seen in several recent social media posts spending time with an old friend of hers named Anastasia “Stassie” Karanikolaou. While the two have known each other for years, with Karanikolaou attending Jenner’s baby shower, they are hanging out quite a bit more now that Woods has left the scene. Karanikolaou is a model who maintains a very popular presence on social media, modeling a wide variety of bikinis and designer outfits. Karanikolaou certainly seems to share Jenner’s affection, calling the makeup mogul “my heart” in a recent Instagram post.

The two have even coordinated matching outfits that Jenner has shared on Instagram, and referred to each other as “partners in crime.” It certainly seems as though without Woods in her life, Jenner is allowing her circle to widen, and for other friendships to grow and develop.
