Johannesburg - If there is one thing that Jordyn Wood’s alleged relationship with Khloé Kardashian’s now ex-boyfriend Tristan Thomas has put in jeopardy – it is her relationship with the Kardashian family and long-time friend Kylie Jenner.

Their friendship which reportedly started while they were still in primary school was thrust into the spotlight in Kylie’s reality show, Life of Kylie in 2017.

In the season finale of the realty show, Kylie and Jordyn even get “married” while on holiday together in Peru.

Speaking on the show, Jordyn explained her relationship with the make-up mogul.

“There are different types of relationships — we’re definitely in one,” she said. “Not necessarily sexual, but definitely emotional. It’s draining sometimes. I don’t want to say she’s a needy girlfriend, but …”

Jordyn also occasionally appeared on Keeping Up With the Kardashians and could be seen spending time with Kylie’s sisters.


Although Jordyn has a close relationship with the Kardashian family, Jordyn’s own family is also quite influential in celebville.

Her mother, Elizabeth Woods, is a popular Los Angeles socialite and talent manager, according to Entertainment Tonight.

Jordyn is also signed to a top modelling agency Wilhelmina International's Curve, who discovered her on Instagram.

And the Kardashians are not the only celeb family she is tied to. She has often appeared on both Will and Jaden Smith’s Instagram feeds. 

In a since removed post dedicated to Jordyn, Jaden Smith wrote: “Jordyn Is One Of The First People I Ever Met, We've Been Friends Since A Few Days After I Was Born And Always Will”.

Jordyn also calls Will Smith her uncle which is an indication of family ties to the Smith family.

A good indication of how close Jordyn has been with the Kardashian family is a quick look at her Instagram page and how much the sisters comment on her pictures – especially Khloé Kardashian.

In one post, which was shared in December, Khloé commented: “I F***ing just choked!!!!! Holy hell you are so incredibly gorgeous”


In addition to this Jordyn also attended Kim and Kanye’s wedding back in 2016 and has been a guest to many exclusive Kardashian functions throughout her friendship with Kylie.

More recently Jordyn and Kylie launched a make-up line together and then went on a vacation with Kylie’s daughter Stormi to celebrate Stormi’s first birthday.


The model’s public life has pretty much revolved around the family and her friendship with Kylie which makes the love triangle with her, Tristan Thomas and Khloé even more complicated and painful.

Will this be the end of her relationship with Kylie and the Kardashian family? Find out (possibly) on season 16 of Keeping Up with the Kardashians
