Kylie Jenner Told Jennifer Lawrence That She And Jordyn Woods “Never Fully Cut Each Other Off” After The Cheating Scandal

“Jordyn and I, we always stayed in touch throughout the years, and we would meet up at my house and catch up and just talk through everything,” Kylie told Jennifer Lawrence in a new interview.

In a new interview with Jennifer Lawrence, Kylie Jenner gave brand new insight on what really went down between her and Jordyn Woods.

For a quick refresher, Kylie and Jordyn were longtime besties after first meeting as teenagers through their mutual friend, Jaden Smith.

Like many KarJenner BFFs, Jordyn quickly became a part of the family’s inner circle, even attending Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s Italian wedding in 2014.

Years later, Jordyn actually started living in Kylie’s home permanently to support her bestie when she became a mom to Stormi back in 2018.

It was only a year after this milestone in February 2019 that Jordyn and Kylie’s friendship was changed forever when rumors surfaced that Tristan Thompson had cheated on Khloé Kardashian with Jordyn at a house party.

Of course, this wasn’t the first — or the last — time that Tristan was accused of cheating on Khloé. However, this scandal became huge news thanks to the fact that it was centered around Kylie’s older sister and closest friend.

At the time, Jordyn was prompted to speak out on the cheating allegations during an episode of Red Table Talk, in which she confirmed that she and Tristan kissed, but nothing else.

In the same interview, she tearfully denied being a “home-wrecker” and claimed that she had attempted to apologize privately to Khloé, who she expressed sympathy for.

“She doesn’t deserve this, either,” Jordyn said of Khloé. “The last thing I wanted to do was be that person. I’m no home-wrecker. I would never try to hurt someone’s home, especially someone that I love.”

What’s more, Jordyn also claimed she was “not the reason” Khloé and Tristan’s relationship ended, which prompted Khloé to lash out on social media, disputing that this was the case.

After Khloé made her stance on the situation clear, it wasn’t long before the rest of the KarJenners followed suit by distancing themselves from Jordyn — all except for Kylie.

Caught in the middle of the scandal, Kylie actually remained quiet on the topic for quite some time. Although in 2021, she confirmed that they were no longer friends, saying that the demise of their relationship was an “overnight thing.”

So, while Khloé and Tristan were able to patch things up, the same couldn’t be said for Kylie and Jordyn, who publicly kept their distance from one another for years to come — that was until this summer, when the pair were photographed leaving an LA sushi restaurant in July.

This was the first time Jordyn and Kylie were seen together in four years since the cheating scandal unfolded, and in the months since, they’ve made it clear that they’re friendly again by being seen shopping together, too.

And while neither have publicly spoken about the reunion since it happened, Jennifer Lawrence stepped in and decided to quiz Kylie on the topic while interviewing the mogul for a recent magazine cover.

“Obviously, there was a huge trauma many years ago, but we’ve recently seen that you are friends with Jordyn again,” Jennifer said, going on to ask: “How is that? How did that happen? What up?”

In response, Kylie began by revealing that — despite her previous admission that their friendship ended “overnight” — she and Jordyn never officially cut contact with one another.

“Jordyn and I, we always stayed in touch throughout the years, and we would meet up at my house and catch up and just talk through everything,” she said, before giving some insight into how their public reunion came about.

“We never fully cut each other off, and one day, naturally, we were like, we want to get sushi, and we don’t want to hide anymore,” she revealed.

Reflecting on the cheating scandal, Kylie made it clear that any family drama is firmly in the past, and that having some space from each other wound up being for the best.

“There’s a learning lesson in everything, and I think that in a weird way, everything happens how it’s supposed to happen,” she said. “We were so attached at the hip that we needed space to grow into the people that we were supposed to be. I needed that independence and that confidence because she was like my security blanket for so long.”

If you’ve been watching this season of The Kardashians, you’ll know that Kylie echoed these comments during a recent sit-down conversation with Tristan, in which the two recalled how his mistakes impacted both Kylie and Jordyn, as well as Khloé.

“I think I was so codependent with Jordyn that I could’ve never imagined my life without her,” Kylie told Tristan, adding that she and Jordyn would “probably still be living together” had the ordeal not put a strain on their friendship.

“I think she needed to grow without me, I needed to grow without her,” she added. “But, you know, Jordyn and I are cool, like, we still talk and catch up. We’re good.”
