'I should have gone home': Jordyn Woods gives first interview after Tristan Thompson cheating scandal

Jordyn Woods has given her first interview since the Tristan Thompson cheating scandal broke.

The 21-year-old model found herself in the middle of a controversy the last few weeks after she reportedly hooked up with the NBA player, who was Khloé Kardashian's then-boyfriend.


But Jordyn - Kylie Jenner's BFF - appeared on Jada Pinkett Smith's Red Table Talk today to share her side of the story.

Recalling how her night began, she said that she had gone to a bar with some friends. and was "minding my own business, drinking and dancing."

She noted that Tristan was there as well, but he was "doing his own thing."

Once they left the bar, Jordyn said that her friends told her they were going to go to a house party - one at Tristan's place.

The 21-year-old said that she was OK with it at first, as it "felt like a safe environment."

She said:

"I'm like, 'cool, that's ok'. It felt like a safe environment, I'd rather it be his house than a random stranger's house. He didn't invite me there, it wasn't like, 'come see me.'

"We pull up, we walk in. Not once was I aware of anyone's phone or told them to take away a phone. I don't care; I don't have anything to hide.


"[During the party] we're all dancing, we're all drinking. I'm not thinking, 'I shouldn't be here.' And that's the first step where I went wrong.  how I would feel if someone close to me is hanging out at my ex’s house or the father of my child. I didn’t think about that. That’s the first part o the problem.

“I should have gone home after the party. I shouldn't even have been there.

"Not once was I giving him a lap dance, making out with him, sitting all over him - never once did we leave the public area. We're all in plain sight [throughout the night]."

Jordyn insisted there was "never anything intimate" that happened between her and Tristan during the party.

She said:

"He didn't try and take me to a room or anything, it was just an innocent time.

"I understand why [it's hard for people to believe nothing happened]. But there was always someone there when I was there - up until the moment I left.

"I tell everyone I'm leaving, I tell Tristan I'm leaving. He's like, 'are you sure? It's OK, you can stay here.'"

She added that despite his assurances it was OK to stay, she still decided to leave the party - and that's where "the story gets tricky."


She continued:

"I feel like I can't point fingers, because I allowed myself to be in that position. I allowed myself to be there.

"I was never belligerently drunk to the point where I can't remember what happened - I was never blacked out.

"But on the way out [of the party], he kissed me. It was like a kiss on the lips - no passion, no tongue kiss, no making out; nothing.

"I don't think he's wrong either, because I allowed myself to be in that position. When alcohol's involved, people make dumb moves or get caught up in the moment - who knows?"

The model said that she "didn't know how to feel" after the NBA player kissed her, and left the party immediately afterwards.

She recalled:


"I was leaving already, so I left immediately and got in the car. I was in shock, like, 'did this really [just happen]? That didn't just happen.'

"I went home, I talked to Kylie and Khloé in the morning. [Khloé] was asking me what's going on, was everything fine.

"I was trying to forget about [the kiss]. I was honest about being there, but I wasn't honest about the actions that had taken place."

She said that she was "trying to protect Khloé's heart" by not telling her about the kiss.

She added:

"It's not fair she has to deal with this either.

"I just knew how much turmoil had been going on that I was like, 'let me not throw more fuel on the fire.'

"The last thing I wanted to do was be that person. I'm no homewrecker, I would never try to hurt someone's home. Especially someone who I love.

"I really just hurt so many more people by not telling the truth."
