Jordyn Woods may be thriving following her fallout from the Kardashian-Jenner family after her alleged hookup with Tristan Thompson, but that doesn’t mean she’s forgotten all the negative attention.
During a panel discussion at Homecoming Festival in Nigeria on Sunday, the 21-year-old model said she felt “bullied by the world” after being excommunicated from the famous clan.
“My little sister was bullied in school, and I wanted to show her that I was bullied by the world,” Jordyn said, according to audience videos clips obtained by The Daily Mail. “I understood for the first time what it’s like being a black woman in a just society — how we can be so disrespected, and nobody can really understand to that extent until you have lived it.”
News that Khloe Kardashian’s baby daddy and Kylie Jenner’s then-bestie were seen canoodling at a house party broke Feb. 19. Jordyn’s subsequent appearance on Jada Pinkett Smith’s “Red Table Talk” took place just 10 days later.
During the highly anticipated interview, Jordyn told Aunt Jada she “never once” gave Tristan a lap dance, nor did she make out with him, contrary to reports she had read. She claimed they were in plain sight the whole time. It was when Jordyn went to leave the party, around 7 a.m. the next day, that she claimed Tristan kissed her. Jordyn said that’s the part she didn’t tell Khloe and Kylie — and she said it was her biggest regret.
She was apologetic and emotional, telling Jada repeatedly she shouldn’t have put herself in that position. Jordyn also said she hadn’t spoken to Tristan since that day and that the two never had a secret relationship.
“I’m not here to play the victim; I’m here to take responsibility,” she said. “And when I was asked about what happened that night, I didn’t tell the truth to the people I loved — not because of malicious intent, but I was scared.”
Khloe immediately went after Jordyn on Twitter, calling her a “liar” and claiming she “ruined” her family. She later cast the real blame on Tristan, but nevertheless, the relationship was severed.
