Why Did Jada Pinkett Smith Unfollow the Kardashians?

For those who don’t watch Keeping Up With the Kardashians, there’s a good chance you never heard the name Jordyn Woods before she was accused of having an affair with Tristan Thompson. But since the now infamous incident, Woods is instantly thought of as the homewrecker who destroyed Khloe Kardashian’s family. People have been quick to judge Woods and the Kardashian family has cut ties with someone who was once considered to be a part of the family. But not everyone is turning their back on Woods.

What is the Jordyn Woods scandal?

Earlier this year, reports began circulating that Thompson was caught cheating on Khloe Kardashian, yet again. But this time, things hit a little closer to home. The person that Thompson was reported to have an affair with was Woods, Kylie Jenner’s best friend and a close family friend.

Shortly after the news broke, the Kardashian family began to cut ties with both Thompson and Woods. Khloe finally dumped Thompson and many members of the family turned their back on Woods. Many questioned whether anyone in the family would ever let Woods back in.

How Jada Pinkett Smith helped Jordyn Woods

For many people, it came as a shock when Jada Pinkett Smith revealed that she would be inviting Woods to her show, Red Table Talk, to discuss her role in the Kardashian cheating scandal. Woods’ actions with Thompson made Woods the automatic bad guy to many people, so some wondered why Smith would give such a person a platform for her to excuse her actions.

Shortly into the interview, it was clear why Smith had invited Woods onto the show. Smith’s husband Will and Woods’ father worked together on the TV show Fresh Prince of Bel Air. Smith was the star and Woods’ father, John Woods, was a sound engineer for the show. The Smith family has known Jordyn since she was born and considers her to be a part of the family.  

The Smith family became close with the Kardashians when Jaden Smith and Kylie became friends. During the intro to her Red Table Talk, Jada Pinkett Smith said: “The friendships between Jaden, Jordyn, and Kylie brought three families together where many bonds were made.” The three families became very close, making the cheating scandal that much harder for everyone involved.

Jada Pinkett Smith unfollowed the Kardashians on Instagram

It was clear from the start that the Smith family had Woods’ back. Every member of the family sympathized with her and acknowledged her age and poor choices. In a video call to Woods, Will Smith told Woods: “I want you to know that you are supported and I got you and we got you.”

Shortly after Woods’ appearance on Red Table Talk, Khloe Kardashian took to Twitter to blast Woods, stating, “Why are you lying @jordynwoods?? If you’re going to try and save yourself by going public, INSTEAD OF CALLING ME PRIVATELY TO APOLOGIZE FIRST, at least be HONEST about your story. BTW, You ARE the reason my family broke up!”

After the back and forth, it looks like the Smith family continues to stand by Woods. Sources have confirmed that both Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith have unfollowed Kris Jenner, Kim Kardashian, and Khloe Kardashian.

Jordyn Woods’ mom is telling people to back off

It’s not just the Smiths that are sticking up for Woods. Her mom, Elizabeth Woods, is being a loud advocate for her daughter as well. Recently Woods’ mother took to Instagram to tell people to stop trying to make money off of her daughter’s pain, saying she is aware of the merchandise that is being sold and added that none of it has been authorized.

In addition to defending her daughter, it looks like she is trying to help repair the relationship between Jordyn Woods and Kylie Jenner. Jenner recently posted a picture of her daughter Stormi on Instagram and Elizabeth Woods responded with simply three red hearts.
