It appears Jordyn Woods isn’t giving up hope when it comes to the possibility of reconciling with her former best friend Kylie Jenner.
A Strained Relationship
Sitting down with Cosmopolitan U.K. for a new profile piece, published on Tuesday, the 21-year-old model, actress and entrepreneur addresses her strained relationship with the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, following their falling out.
When asked how she’s been dealing with losing her good friend — while simultaneously dealing with Twitter trolls over her alleged involvement in the Tristan Thompson cheating scandal — Woods has nothing but kind words for the 21-year-old beauty mogul.
“I love her. That’s my homie,” Woods says. “I hope everything falls into place and that we can all grow and build our relationships with our family and God and come back together one day and be stronger and happier.”
She goes on to explain that the controversy and the subsequent blow-back taught her a lesson about the fickle nature of friendships when you live life as an affluent public figure.
“A lot of people can be around when things are good,” Woods continues. “But you don’t know who’s really around until things are bad.”
Jenner famously ended her friendship with her longtime best friend after Woods allegedly kissed Thompson, who was in a relationship at the time with Jenner’s sister, Khloe Kardashian — with whom he shares a 1-year-old daughter, True.
After the news first broke, Woods sat down with Jada Pinkett Smith for an episode of her Facebook Watch series, Red Table Talk, where she claimed that Thompson had kissed her, and she hadn’t initiated or intentionally reciprocated and that the incident left her “in shock.”
However, the wave of negativity online was overwhelming, and Woods opened up about being the target of trolls, hatred and vitriolic messages, posted by people who she feels are disconnected by the impact of their words and actions through the layer of distance provided by social media.
“The internet feels so entitled to have opinions about everything, but a lot of it is bulls**t. These are real people, with real lives,” Woods said. “People are so detached that they don’t feel empathy, they don’t feel bad, they don’t realize that the one message that you sent laughing at someone could be the message that pushes that person off the ledge.”
ET recently spoke to Woods about her future plans and the young star said she he’s looking to move forward and past the drama. “Life moves on. Money doesn’t stop,” she shared. “The world doesn’t stop. And hopefully, everyone is just, you know, going forward.”
For her part, Woods has just been trying to live her life to the fullest and has been “staying busy, staying positive and just working. I don’t think I’ve ever been more busy.”
“I mean life is short, you know, tomorrow is not promised,” Woods added. “So, just always stay as positive as possible,”
