On February 17, 2019, Thompson, who shares daughter True with Kardashian,
was seen cozying up to Woods at a party. The twosome were “making out,” a source told Us Weekly at the time.

“Khloé loved Jordyn before this,” the source told
Us in 2019. “This is completely shocking to Khloé’s family.”
After the two were caught cheating, which
Woods initially denied, Kardashian called things off with the Cleveland Cavaliers star and Jenner’s friendship with the model was left on rocky terms.

Scroll through the gallery below to see what’s happened to the makeup mogul since the cheating drama caused her and Woods to end their friendship.
Before the Feud
Jenner and Woods became friends in 2012 and before the cheating scandal hit, the two were living together in the Kylie Cosmetic founder’s house. They also collaborated on the makeup line, Kylie x Jordyn in 2018 — and Woods previously modeled for Khloé’s clothing line.
In February 2019, Woods was spotted “making out” with Khloé’s then-boyfriend Thompson with whom she shares daughter True. The model initially denied anything happened but eventually took ownership to her part — which led to Thompson and Khloé splitting and Jenner and Woods ending their seven-year friendship.
After the story broke — fans watched it unfold on numerous episodes of
KUWTK — Jenner comforted her sister and explained initial conversation she had with Woods. “I called her and she didn’t really say anything, she was just, like, you know, crying the whole time,” Jenner explained to both Khloé and Kim. “I was just telling her that I’m, like, scared of you now … you weren’t thinking about True, about Khloé, about me, [and] you weren’t thinking about yourself.”
Business on the Rise
During her personal turmoil, Jenner hit a professional milestone, being named the youngest self-made billionaire by
Forbes in March 2019. “I didn’t expect anything. I did not foresee the future,” she told the publication at the time. “But [the recognition] feels really good. That’s a nice pat on the back.”
In March 2019, the social media star went on
Red Table Talk to share her side of the story. During the discussion with cohost Jada Pinkett Smith, Woods admitted to kissing Thompson but claimed there was “no passion” and “no tongue.” She denied having sex with the basketball player as well, saying that it was “never a consideration.” Woods then claimed that she “did as much apologizing as [she] could over the phone, over the text” to Khloé.
Kylie Defends Jordyn With Her Sisters
During an episode of
KUWTK, fans watched Khloé on a trip to Palm Springs with Malika Haqq where they sang along to Nivea’s “Don’t Mess With My Man,” sending a message to Woods following her Red Table Talk interview. Khloé also slammed Woods’ story in regard to the apology that she revealed she never got.
Once Jenner saw the video on Instagram, she called sister Kim to try and stop the way they were all approaching the incident. “I just feel like we’re bigger than this, we’re better than this. I feel like call her or talk to her in person,” she told Kim at the time. “We just don’t need to bully anyone.”
Focused on Other Friendships

Kylie Gets Clarity
During an episode of
KUWTK that aired in July 2019, the Lip Kit maven opened up to the Revenge Body host about her fallout with Woods. “I think that this whole Jordyn situation needed to happen. For a reason. For me, for her, for you, for everybody. She was my security blanket, she lived with me, we did everything together,” she explained. “I just felt like, ‘Oh, I have Jordyn, I don’t need anything else.’ I feel like there’s a part of me that needed to grow without her. And sometimes people are there for certain reasons and certain times of your life and not for others.”
Five months after the scandal, Jenner purged her former BFF from her “following” list on Instagram.
Keeping Her Squad Close
“Kylie keeps those in her intimate circle very close. Kylie’s friends support her by being faithful and trustworthy, which Jordyn proved not to be,” an insider told
Us in July 2019. “Kylie is still very hurt and disappointed by Jordyn’s actions and her decision making. It completely shattered Kylie for a bit and left her feeling very conflicted.”
In July 2019, a source told
Us that after Jenner realized that she had “become codependent” with Woods, it took a while to see clearly. In the end, she hoped they could both move forward. “She’ll always care about Jordyn and she only wants the best for her,” the source added. “She’s only sending positivity to Jordyn, but it’s too soon to say [if] they’ll be able to fully reconcile. But time heals a lot of wounds, and the Kardashian/Jenners are a forgiving family.”
Kylie Turns 22
The billionaire celebrated her birthday — the first one without BFF Woods — while on vacation in Italy with family and friends in August 2019. The bash included partying on a yacht fit for a queen, a floral display shaped like the number 22 and piña coladas on the sun deck.

Taking the High Road
Despite freezing out the SECNDTURE designer, Jenner has continued to keep things civil when it comes to Woods. “None of the Kardashian/Jenners are speaking to Jordyn, but Kylie still won’t trash talk Jordyn,” a source told
Us exclusively in August 2019. “She doesn’t wish her ill will.” At the time, the insider added that “Jordyn is off doing her own thing.”
Kylie and Travis Call It Quits
Us confirmed in October 2019 that Jenner and her boyfriend of more than two years, Travis Scott, were taking a break from their relationship. The two share daughter Stormi, who they continue to coparent.
Jordyn Is Looking for a Core Group of Friends
“I don’t really have a core friend group right now,” Woods told
Us in November 2019, nine months after her cheating scandal. “I have my family. All of my friends are my family. A lot of my best friends are my childhood best friends and people that I’ve known for two decades.”
Kylie Cosmetics Expands
In November 2019, the entrepreneur sold 51 percent stake in her company to Coty for $600 million. “I think it was just time,” Jenner explained to
Harper’s Bazaar in its March 2020 cover story about her decision to sell. “I mean, we have a great team. But it’s me and my mom kind of leading the pack, which will still be the case. Nothing’s going to change. But hopefully we can expand and get a big infrastructure behind Kylie Cosmetics and go worldwide and get more amazing people on the team to expand the business.”
Kendall and Kylie Team Up
The youngest Kardashian-Jenner and big sis,
Kendall Jenner, announced a new makeup collaboration in January 2020. “We’re really excited,” the model told Ellen DeGeneres at the time. “We’re really goin’ big because I’m her full blood. We’re taking it seriously.”

Stormi Turns 2
The February 2020 birthday bash marked the first major celebration for Jenner’s daughter since her friendship fell apart with Woods. The party was Stormiworld themed once again, but with a twist. There were carnival rides, a
Trolls World and Frozen World and Stormiworld-themed store and bar, which all push the “2 is better than 1” theme of the event.

Kylie ‘Doing Well’
“Kylie has been doing well since her and Jordyn’s friendship ended,” a source told
Us Weekly in February 2020. Another source added: “She of course misses Jordyn at points, but she was more affected by the hurt that was inflicted upon her family versus her relationship with Jordyn directly. She was very conflicted initially, but after observing all the chaos across the board, she knew she had no choice to step away from the friendship.”

Jordyn Says ‘Everything Comes Full Circle’
The fashion designer told opened up about her friendship fallout during a November episode of PrettyLittleThing’s “Behind Closed Doors” podcast. “I think life is just about constantly evolving and constantly growing and becoming the best version of you,” she said. “And as long as you’re solid and the people around you are solid and everyone has the best intentions and everyone’s genuine, there’s not really a problem. I love meeting new people and, you know, I love people.”
Woods didn’t name Jenner during the interview but she did discuss how she has moved forward over the past two years. “I think that you can’t let life dim you down and you can’t let things happen to you or whatever, you know what goes on in life, change who you are for the worst,” she said. “You have to constantly become better and evolve and everything is a learning lesson. I’m very happy with the people I have in my life and that’s just life. Everything comes full circle too.”
