Jordyn Woods’ rumored affair with NBA star Tristan Thompson may not have been the first time she was connected to one Khloé Kardashian’s boyfriends.
According to Us Weekly, Woods had a short-lived relationship with Houston Rockets player James Harden, whom Kardashian had dated after meeting him in 2015. While it’s unclear just when exactly Woods and Harden got together, it’s reported that they started dating sometime after Kardashian and Harden called it quits in early 2016.
“Jordyn did hook up with James Harden after Khloé dated him first,” a source told Us Weekly, adding that Kardashian was “not with him at the time.”
Kardashian reportedly knew about Woods and Harden getting together and may have even been fine with it, though it may have now contributed to her perception of Woods. “It wasn’t an issue at the time, but it does show now that Jordyn has a history of omitting facts and crossing lines,” the insider said. A second source told Us Weekly that Woods had “denied” dating Harden at first after Kardashian reportedly “confronted” her about the romance. Not a great move.
Similarly, Woods reportedly “denied” any wrongdoing to Kardashian regarding her alleged affair with Thompson, but later opened up about what went down.
At the time of this writing, neither Woods, 21, nor Harden, 29, have commented on their rumored relationship.
According to StyleCaster, Kardashian may have broken up with Harden because he cheated, though it’s unclear just with whom Harden may have had an affair. On an episode of Kardashian’ since-cancelled talk show Kocktails With Khloé, she shared that “her most recent relationship” came to an end after her boyfriend cheated. “I just don’t want to put up with people that, you want to be monogamous, but you’re not monogamous,” Kardashian said, without naming Harden directly.
Referring to their relationship, she continued, “He wanted that. I wanted it but I wanted to be realistic,” explaining, “He wanted to be committed. Then wasn’t committed. KoKo had to let him go-go.”
As fans of the Kardashians and all the drama that surrounds them already know, Jordyn Woods was accused of cheating with Tristan Thompson at a party at his house. TMZ reported that Woods and Thompson “were all over each other” and were “making out.” A source told E! News, “They had chemistry the entire night and everyone could see it… You could tell they were into each other.”
The news reportedly prompted Khloé Kardashian, 34, to end her relationship with Thompson, 27, for good and to cut Woods out of her life. Since the scandal broke, Woods has moved out of Kylie Jenner’s house and has been removed from Kardashian’s Good American site, where she’d once modeled jeans for the company.
However, Woods has maintained that she never made out with Thompson, though she has admitted to hanging out with the athlete at his home with a group of friends after a night of drinking. Appearing on actress Jada Pinkett Smith’s Facebook show Red Table Talk, Woods denied rumors that she hooked up with Thompson and that she gave him a lap dance. She noted that she hadn’t been the only person to hang out at Thompson’s home until the early morning. She also shared that, while there’d been no affair, Thompson kissed her on the lips when she’d decided to leave and go home.
Woods admitted to not telling Kardashian about the kiss right away, saying that she had a hard time believing that it had actually happened. “I’m no homewrecker,” she told Pinkett Smith. “I would never try to hurt someone’s home, especially someone that I love and someone who I’ve seen has a beautiful daughter. I never was [trying] to steal someone’s man.”
She went on, “I know I’m not the reason that Khloé and Tristan are not together. Now this situation may have made it harder for her to want to be with him, and I understand that, but I know I’m not the reason.”
But Kardashian doesn’t appear to buy what Woods has said. In a tweet following the release of Woods’ Red Table Talk interview, she tweeted out, “Why are you lying @jordynwoods?? If you’re going to try and save yourself by going public, INSTEAD OF CALLING ME PRIVATELY TO APOLOGIZE FIRST, at least be HONEST about your story,” adding, “BTW, You ARE the reason my family broke up!”
Yikes. Sounds like this drama is far from over.
