Jordyn Woods (born September 23, 1997) is an American social media personality and model based in Los Angeles, California. She is best known for her friendship with former BFF, businesswoman and reality TV star Kylie Jenner. Jordyn had a falling out with her pal, and the rest of the Kardashian-Jenner family after she was seen cozying up to Tristan Thompson, the father of Khloe Kardashian‘s daughter. She is now focused on her relationship with her own family, and her career as a model and social media star.
Jordyn Woods grew up just north of Los Angeles in Oak Park, California and she moved to Calabasas at the age of 13. Her family was close with the Smith family, and she’s even referred to Will Smith as her “uncle”. It’s believed his son Jaden Smith introduced her to Kylie the summer before they began high school, as they later revealed they had been inseparable since eighth grade. Their friendship was well-documented on Instagram, and on TV as Jordyn made frequent appearances on the family’s reality show. She was even on the guest list of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian’s star-studded wedding in Italy.
When Kylie fell pregnant in 2017, to then-boyfriend Travis Scott, Jordyn was among the few people in the world who were part of Kylie’s inner-circle. Somewhat miraculously, she and the KarJenner family helped conceal Kylie’s pregnancy for months, until she gave birth to little Stormi in 2018. Her relationship with the family went south in February 2019, when she was spotted cozying up to Tristan Thompson, the father of Khloe Kardashian’s baby, at a party. Cheating rumors began circulating, however she was adamant that she and Tristan never slept together. Jordyn later apologized for the kiss in an interview on Jada Pinkett Smith‘s Red Table Talk. “I’m no home-wrecker,” she tearfully said in the interview. “I would never try to hurt someone’s home, especially someone that I love, and someone who has a beautiful daughter. I never tried to steal someone’s man.”
She has since moved past the drama with the Kardashian family, and has a new man in her life: NBA star Karl-Anthony Towns. A source close to Jordyn spoke to HollywoodLife exclusively about how the pair went from friends to lovers so quickly in the summer of 2020. “Jordyn and Karl were friends for the longest time and then when his mom passed [in April], she was really able to be there for him because she understood exactly what he was going through,” they told us, recalling how Jordyn lost her father, John Woods, to cancer in 2017. “Jordyn and Karl got closer and it just naturally grew into them falling in love. They kept it to themselves at first because they didn’t want the pressure, but they’re in love and they just couldn’t hide it anymore.”
