Khloe Kardashian & Tristan weren’t together when he hooked up with Jordyn

Sunday’s episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians was all about the Tristan Thompson-Jordyn Woods drama. That drama went down in February and early March. I actually remember the timeline pretty well, because before the news came out about Jordyn and Tristan maybe-hooking up at a party, we were reading stories about how Khloe Kardashian’s relationship with Tristan was on its last leg. Khloe and Tristan were barely spending any time together, and there were widespread rumors that they had already broken up by the time he was coming on to Jordyn. So to see Khloe act like she and Tristan were super-solid and Jordyn “destroyed her family” always came across as a bit delusional on Khloe’s part. Well, everything old is new again – a source reconfirmed to People Magazine that yeah, Khloe and Tristan were already over.

When news about Tristan Thompson and Jordyn Woods‘ tryst broke earlier this year, his relationship with Khloé Kardashian was already on the rocks, according to a source.

“When the Jordyn drama happened, Khloé and Tristan were not in a proper relationship,” a source tells PEOPLE. “They had not been for weeks. They didn’t even spend Valentine’s Day together, which was right before he messed around with Jordyn.”

While the scandal was heartbreaking for Kardashian — who shares 14-month-old daughter True with Thompson — to learn about, she was still hopeful of reconciling with the 28-year-old NBA star.

“But this doesn’t mean that it was completely over for Khloé. It was very difficult for her to find out about Tristan and Jordyn. But this is what made her realize that Tristan would never change,” says the source. “It was heartbreaking for her.” For Kardashian, “she always hoped there was a way things could work out, because that’s what she wanted for True,” the source explains. “She wanted True to live with both her parents.”

[From People]

I’ve said for months that Tristan cheated on Khloe so many times because he was trying to force her to dump him. He couldn’t believe that she was still clinging to him after he humiliated her repeatedly. Even after the Jordyn thing, if Tristan had gone to Khloe and pinky-swore to keep it in his pants for a week, Khloe would have taken him back and been posting happy-family Instagrams that very day. No, it just got to a point where Tristan realized that Khloe was never going to dump him, so he just found a way to exit the relationship in the messiest way possible so – he thought – there would be no going back. Joke’s on him, because Khloe would still take him back. Anyway… yeah, I feel for Jordyn.

    She was delusional but I would be salty if a close family friend hooked up with my very recent ex and/or father of my baby. Just saying. Jordyn maybe got too bum of a rap but her hands aren’t clean.

    • ByTheSea says:

      This. It was totally not on Jordan to keep him faithful, but it was on her to be a decent friend. She’s been aligned to this family forever, another ballplayer would have found her eventually. This one was not it.

      • Char says:

        Agree. Jordyn knew about all the drama and still hit it. Not only she wasn’t nice to her friend’s sister, she was completely stupid since she depended on them for work and living. If you’re gonna burn your bridges, at least do it with some intelligence.

      • Shazza says:

        There was a great Twitter thread of this young lady breaking it ALL down about her ‘needing them for work’ -
        https://twitter.com/NotLaja/status/1143160388453842944
        And they didn’t ‘hook up’, he kissed her.

    • Steph says:

      100%! Kylie has said in the past she considers Khloe her real mom bc Kris was always busy with the older girls. So her bc hooks up with her “mom”’s baby daddy and very well might have been on the way out bf? That’s terrible. She didn’t cause the end of K and T, but what she did was a betrayal. Everyone feels bad for Jordyn, but she fucked around with her family friend’s man!
      Not cool.

      • Coco Puff says:

        I totally agree, i don’t understand how Jordyn being painted as an innocent caught in the crossfire, she’s a bum too (Just like Khloe and Tristan)

    • Arizona says:

      Pretty much my exact feelings. Khloe might have “had it coming” with how she handled Tristan’s first baby mama, but Jordyn didn’t exactly handle it well either (yes I know she’s young, but still).

    • Wow says:

      Yeah, but kylie carried on with kims best friends ex for YEARS, so really who cares?

      Listen, if you want someone keep them. If they don’t want you, deal with it. People are going to date and as we all see time and time again these celebrity groups are smallish.

      If kylie can date Tyga, baby daddy of blac chyna who was kims best friend at the time and it was okay, than this is fine. Not to mention their brother has a whole damn child with blac Chyna.

      Khloe needs to get off her high horse. They weren’t together. She doesn’t own him. She doesn’t own Jordyn. She acts like everyone in her life is property after they get involved with her and shes in charge until SHE is done with them.

      Forgive me if I’m not going to drag the black woman the Kardashians think they own for making out with a single man.

      • Coco Puff says:

        @Wow personally, I don’t believe her race makes her beyond reproach (Just what I think)

      • Edwin says:

        Thank you, they attempted to blame this women all over again and if
        Jada didn’t do that interview with Jordyn to let her no black people had her back there would’ve been an avalanche of hate and bullying to this girl. Kim had the audacity to say that with the money Kylie gave her it allowed jordyn to take care of the family. WHAT!

      • mint says:

        I was only watching the episode to see how they were going to reenact and reframe this. The bit before the scandal broke, how Khloe made big renovations to their home, to have his and hers closets etc. Hilarious. They have no shame.
        What baffels me, how everyone in the family said: yeah, we know what Tristan is capable of BUT JORDYN!!!! So if you know, why cling to him? For the daughter it makes no difference, as he always lived in Cleveland and is on the road all the time. And for her posting family pics on IG- no one believes her anyways. Why does she wants to teach her daughter to stay in a bad relationship.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        “Forgive me if I’m not going to drag the black woman the Kardashians think they own for making out with a single man.”

        This!

      • angie0717 says:

        Oooooooohhh great point! I forgot about BC/Kim/Kylie/Tyga. That was so awful!!! But forgiven? Looked the other way? U might be right about race here. Jordyn is getting a lot of unnecessary flack. Khloe could have rewritten her story by giving birth to her baby without him. And named the baby not a Thompson. There was no grace in the handling of any of this.

      • Christina says:

        Wow, you are SO spot on!!! Everything you said.

    • CityGirl says:

      100%

    • PointingScreaming says:

      This family? The arbiters of social/ecological/physical morality & etiquette? Uh. No. They all ride on the back of Kim’s porno tape hustled by her own mother. Please. Jordyn is an human being who gave in to attraction- does she deserve the character assassination from a bunch of vapid opportunists? Calm down people.

    • Rizzy says:

      Wow! Feel sorry for Jordan? Do people really hate the Kardashians that much that they can’t feel any compassion? Jordyn was dead wrong and I mean come on, a lot of women are delusional about their relationships. It’s not exclusive to Khloe! Being that she was delusional/infatuated should’ve kept her ”so-called” friend away from him. Especially someone who helped you and your family get money. It was flat out betrayal and that hurts even if you’re a Kardashian.

  2. Eliza says:

    If the hookup made her realize the truth then she should be thanking Jordyn, because he was never going to change. He never cared about Khloe, he’s all about himself.

    Move on girl. Stop with the plastic. Be there for your daughter. Find a man without an addiction when you’re good with yourself.

  3. Lonnie tinks says:

    Khloe hooked up with him while he had a newly pregnant girlfriend, she is delusional for not seeing who he is on the very first date.

  4. elimaeby says:

    Khloe, girl. Focus on your daughter and yourself. All the klinging (sorry I couldn’t help it!) she does in relationships is so depressing.

  5. Cee says:

    I agree, Kaiser. He wanted out and instead of leaving her he decided he had to do something huge in order to ensure Khloe would hate him enough, so he “cheated” with Jordyn, who was too young, too naive and too stupid and placed herself in that position. I wonder what it would take for Khloe to finally realise Tristan is a pos and not worthy of having a relationship with?

  6. Morrissey says:

    The Kardashians must still be so mad that weren’t able to control the narrative completely this time. Aunty Jada shut that all down. They’re still trying it, though.

    Unrelated, can I please share that last night I fever dreamed that Kanye West lent me a pair of shoes and told me, in front of everyone, that I have ugly feet. Please pray for me. Thank you.

    • Onemoretime says:

      Lol sending prayers your way!!

    • original_kellybean says:

      I am laughing at your dream. The psyche is weird.

    • Alyse says:

      OMG I had a similar dream a few months ago! Kanye bought me shoes to make me feel better after North told me I had ugly feet (because she had never seen feet without a pedicure lol!)
      I weirdly have a lot of dreams where Kanye and/or Mumma Kris are my bffs…. makes for entertaining dreams if nothing else

      • Morrissey says:

        What is this wizardry? I wonder if there’s a support group for people who have had a West call their feet ugly in dreams??

  7. BANANIE says:

    I still can’t fathom why he didn’t just break up with her! Instead of this whole rigamarole.

    • Lightpurple says:

      He probably thinks he did.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      yeah, what Lightpurple said.

      I’d bet that he made it clear to her, probably a dozen times, that they were NOT together, or at least not exclusive. in HIS mind, they were broken up or at least “open”.

    • Marlene says:

      Likewise I can’t fathom why Khloe didn’t just go with a sperm donor…

  8. Bunny says:

    The brow lift and nose job do not suit her at all.

    I wouldn’t tolerate a ‘friend’ traipsing around behind my back with my ex days after we broke up. Too vulture-y.

    • Zwella Ingrid says:

      Right on @ Bunny. I would have to kick a girl friend’s ass if she kissed my man right after we broke up. No friend of mine, that is for sure.

  9. Christina says:

    Money can’t buy self esteem.

  10. Patty says:

    Eh. They had a drunken kiss, out in the open. I wouldn’t do it but I don’t even consider that a hookup. It’s a drunken kiss. Hookups where I come from usually involve sexual activity. Khloe and team need to take all the seats.

    • elimaeby says:

      THANK YOU. These are all whole-ass adult people. Why is everyone acting like entire LIVES were destroyed by…a kiss? It’s not like he got Jordyn pregnant while Khole was also pregnant/a new mom. Ridiculous.

      • Anon33 says:

        Yeah, no. I would consider “just a kiss” to be cheating. Maybe that makes me a big old prude but too bad. Just because kissing doesn’t mean anything to you doesn’t mean it isn’t meaningful for someone else.

    • Arizona says:

      There’s conflicting reports. Some people say she was all over him at the party, they were making out, she was cuddling in his lap, etc. Her version was that she stayed until 7 am but only had her legs over him at one point and that he kissed her when she was leaving, not in front of everyone. My guess is that it was closer to a hook-up than what Jordyn shared, because her version made her sound super sympathetic and without much responsibility (“he kissed ME!”). But we’ll never know.

      Ultimately I think Khloe should have known who he was as soon as she found out he had a pregnant “ex”, and I believe they were broken up when whatever happened with him and Jordyn happened. But I still think Jordyn is also in the wrong because she’s been so close to this family for so long that even if Tristan was technically single, you don’t fool around with your friend’s baby daddy right after they split.

      Basically they all look ridiculous.

    • Catarina says:

      why would you believe that it was just a “drunken kiss” rather than an outright hookup? Because that’s what Jordyn (of course) claims?) I feel pretty sure it was a lot more than that, but she is trying to play the innocent party. And, there are NO innocent parties here; Jordyn is just like the others–a POS.

  11. MattyLove says:

    All I see in that top pic is Lindsey Lohan. And now I can’t unsee it. She looks like a Lindsey/Kim hybrid

  12. Jb says:

    No innocent parties here. Tristan is a dirty dog, Khloe is a mess with no self esteem and Jordyn is trash for hooking up (whomever believes she stayed the night and some sort of sex act didn’t happen ha!) with her besties sisters ex man. Seriously all awful people who I wouldn’t trust with feeding my goldfish let alone with personal feelings/secrets.

  13. HMC says:

    They’re drawing this out so much I almost wonder if PMK arranged for Jordyn to be there, in case opportunity struck because she knew that it would, then ratings for Khloe’s eventual meltdown.

    But I’m also of the belief that if the rest of the family become less messy and less dramatic, she’ll feed Kourtney asbestos cupcakes to get another story line.

    • Laura Cee says:

      That storyline would be the cherry on top of the asbestos cupcakes and might get me to watch again. Disclaimer is that I watched it a couple years ago when I was couch-bound with depression. Once it started to lift, I broke up with the KJ family!

  14. Sharonk says:

    For the love of god, leave your face alone!!

  15. Mar says:

    So sick of hearing about this!

  16. MeowBea says:

    Didnt Jordyn messed with James Harden too. She is one messy broad but no different than the rest of the KarJenners. Khloe is just pissed than she is now on the receiving end.

  17. ME says:

    Honestly, Tristan isn’t a one woman man. That’s obvious. I don’t understand why he even tries to be in a relationship. Also, Khloe is no where his type. From his previous relationships and the women he’s cheated with, not one looks anything like Khloe. Why was he even dating her in the first place? I don’t get it.

    • Elisa says:

      Right? A colleague of mine at work is the same. He tries so hard to make a relationship work with one woman, but usually ends up cheating after a few weeks. Just frigging own it that you are not made for traditional relationships. Plus this colleague of mine shares all kinds of relationship details (also intimate ones) openly at work. IMO he gets a kick out of it…

  18. ElleKaye says:

    I wouldn’t trust anything that came out of Khloe’s mouth. She has lied so much about her relationships. When she hooked up with French Montana he was dating Trina, a friend of Kim’s, and that didn’t stop her. This victim shtick just gets old.

  19. stacey says:

    Just because Tristan and Khloe were going through a rough patch or on/off because Tristan is a garbage boyfriend, doesn’t mean what Jordyn did was okay. At all.

    What an excuse – justifying hooking up with a guy because he is treats his girlfriend like crap. “Oh he didn’t take the mother of his chid out on valentines day so I hooked up with him!” What the? I bet he is the type of guy that dumps his girlfriend on a Friday so he can hook up with chicks all weekend and then gets back together with his girlfriend the next week. Thats manipulative and I bet Khloe never knew where she stood with him because he was so hot/cold with her.

    I believe the Kardashians were really generous over the years with Jordyn and she backstabbed them when she hooked up with Tristan. There’s a ton of fish in the sea, why do with with the baby daddy of your roomate’s sister? Thats low.

    At the end of the day, this Tristan guy is garbage and toxic and Khloe is better off without him. He really brings out the worst in people.

  20. Missskitttin says:

    She (Jordyn) didn’t “get” with Tristan. He ABUSED a young girl while drunk to the point of not knowing where she was. HUGE MeToo moment which nobody ever found weird or gross at all. She said repeatedly that she didnt know where she was, she didnt know how she got there or when. Basically Khloe blasted him for Rape but nobody noticed.

  21. Jen says:

    That has long been my theory – they were no longer together. Maybe Khloe thought they would get back together or maybe she wanted a better show for the story. Even the way they addressed the fact that he was staying at his own rental house when the incident happened screams to me that they were not together and it wasn’t just that he had friends in town.

    • stacey says:

      Or he was just a huge cheater? Cheaters will make up all sorts of excuses about “going out of town” or reasons for not coming home to their partner or disappearing on a Friday night. Happened to me frequently for years with my cheater boyfriend. It’s really emotionally and spiritually damaging. Cheaters are lying to everyone – their partner, their friends and their cheating partners.

      I think he lied to Khloe, made up some excuses to keep her off his back so he could party and hook up with Jordyn. Im sure he lied to Jordryn too.

      I unforunately have way too much experience with a cheater. They are extremely manipulative and cruel to their partners. Khloe could very well have thought they were working on their relationship when this happened.

      My ex told me he wanted to reconcile and work on our relationship but it was “going to take time.” after a rough month between us. Found out two weeks later he was sleeping with someone else and lying to my face about it every day. I very much consider this a total betrayal after 5 years of dating. This is what they do.

  22. Annie says:

    Honestly, I can’t believe you people would side with Jordyn over Khloe on this one. I bet if you were in Khloe’s shoes you would be just as furious. It’s like there’s no empathy, sympathy or understanding that sometimes people want it to work out so badly that they are willing to endure humiliation. And IT IS A BETRAYAL when a close friend hooks up with a man that they know you are not over with, when they know the wound is still fresh. Hell, even if a couple of years have gone by since the breakup, I would expect a good friend to still clear it with me if she was interested in dating an ex-flame. It’s just respect, which Jordyn Woods clearly have none.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      Khloe has proven herself to be a liar repeatedly. Jordyn is an unknown, so of course people would side with her.

    • Patty says:

      Khloé has repeatedly gone after men that are already in relationships. And also hooked up with men who were already dating or hooking up with some of her female friends; Kylie too. It’s par for the course with these heauxs; so from where I’m sitting no I don’t have empathy or sympathy for this particular woman. Kanye shrug.

  23. Oliviajoy1995 says:

    I have no sympathy for Khloe because she got with Tristan under super shady circumstances. Jordyn should have known better, but the way that family went after Jordyn like Tristan wasn’t already a huge dirtbag, was ridiculous. I think every woman in that family has taken men from others with the exception of Kourtney.

  24. whybother says:

    with kylie, even if tristan ghosted her, she still thinks they are together and solid~
    too much filler in that head, her brain is squish and dead
    and her modus operandi is hooking up with someone else’ s man anyway, well, I guess karma is coming thru jordyn
    meh

  25. Bea Montanez says:

    Rumor has it, Kendall Jenner and Travis Scott had a fling in 2015-2016. And they allegedly slept together.
    According to OK magazine, Travis was bragging to his friends about Kylie being better in bed than Kendall
    OK!’s insider said Travis was “boasting that Kylie’s way better in bed than Kendall and has more to play with, but Kendall’s got more personality. Soooo all of them are MESSY.
    Also, didn’t The Game boast he banged 3 of the KarJenners. Again MESSY.
