The two share a close bond, always being there for each other at all times. When Jordyn’s father passed, Kylie not only stood with her as a friend but also contributed $10k to help foot the medical bill.
Despite her popularity, Jordyn does not come from a celebrity family –which has always left the question as to how she happens to be so close with Kylie. Although they are close friends, neither of the two have revealed how they met.

She signed her second modeling contract in 2015 with ‘Wilhelmina’ -a modeling agency based in New York, shortly after she turned 18.

Dating life & Controversies
It is no secret that Jordyn Woods’ social life has contributed a lot to her popularity and now debut career. It also goes without saying that with fame, comes a lot of public scrutinies –and Jordyn is no exception either.
Recently in February 2019, Jordyn’s name broke the internet with allegations that she had cheated with Khloe Kardashian’s boyfriend, Tristan Thompson. As the story goes, she had gotten too cozy with the father of Khloe’s child during a party, and the Kardashians were not so cool with it.
Although the Kardashian family was swift to classify it as a first-degree betrayal, it seems as if there’s was a lot of emotions and misinformation involved. Sharing her side of the story, Jordyn Woods denied the claims stating that she at no instance made out with Tristan. She says… ‘Never once was I giving him a lap dance, making out with him, sitting all over him… Never once did we leave the public area to go to a bedroom, to a bathroom. We were in plain sight’.
The scandal seems to have taken a huge toll on her relationship with the Kardashian family, Kylie Jenner included. There have even been some reports that she is out of the Kardashian family business.
Even so, there’s always a bright side of everything. This recent scandal seems to have further propelled her fame, which might work in favor of her entrepreneurial activities. As of her relationship with Kylie, the two have proved to be friends in tougher situations before. Only time can tell.
As a matter of fact, Jordyn’s past relationship details have been more of a mystery. Before her latest scandal with the Kardashians, most of her past dating details had been unclear, with no actual evidence of any real relationship.
However, stories have surfaced that she had been in a real relationship before her scandal. The lucky guy had been no other than Devin Booker, who like Tristan also happens to be a basketball player. The duo had apparently ‘quietly’ split just before the whole scandalous story emerged.
Sources have confirmed Devin to be the mystery man photographed on a double date with Kendall Jenner and Ben Simmons sometime back in 2018. Unfortunately, there seems to be no further details revealing of her relationship with Devin, but we will sure keep you updated once something new pops up.
