Though reports have said that Kylie Jenner and Jordyn Woods are repairing their friendship behind Khloe's back, Kylie's recent post tells another story.
She honored her bestie, Stassie Karanikolaou, on her birthday.
But Kylie took things one step further -- and threw some cruel shade in the direction of her former friend, Jordyn. Ouch.
"Happy birthday to the baddest @stassiebaby," Kylie Jenner gushed on Instagram.
Stassie Karanikolaou turned 22 years old on Sunday, June 9.
Kylie followed her opening line with a string of emojis, including birthday horns and red hearts.
"9 years Iater," Kylie remarked. "And you’re still a real one."
Kylie's affectionate message concluded: "I love you forever and always."
The black and white photo that Kylie selected to accompany her kind words featured Stassie's butt fairly prominently.
But not even that booty pic could distract Kylie's fans and followers from Kylie's words.
The line about "9 years later" is a clear reference to their enduring friendship, which began when they were just tweens.
But "and you're still a real one" is hard to view as neutral praise in this context.
Why? Because everyone has to be thinking about Jordyn's absence, which means that Kylie may be implying that Jordyn was just a fake friend.
Interestingly, Kylie and Stassie happened to be at the same place as their ex-friend over the weekend.
Kylie announced to her fans that she was spending a "Bestie birthday weekend" with Stassie.
The pair went to West Hollywood’s Bootsy Bellows nightclub, sharing snaps the entire night.
Jordyn Woods was also spotted there, though Jordyn for some reason elected to now share any pics, and didn't show up in any of their photos.
Coincidence? A little light stalking of your ex besties?
Or does this lend credence to reports that Kylie and Jordyn and mending their shattered friendship, but keeping it hidden from Khloe?
As we previously reported, there are whispers that Kylie and Jordyn are very quietly patching things up.
"Their relationship is on the road to recovery," an insider reported just days ago.
That said, she's apparently not rushing things.
According to the source: "Kylie knows the separation from Jordyn will help both of them -- and Kylie’s family -- to heal."
That makes sense -- and would explain why they'd avoid any photos together.
In the mean time, Jordyn may be in no great hurry to to once again be glued at the hip to Kylie.
"Jordyn has been trying to show the world that she isn’t riding on the Jenner-Kardashian coattails any longer," the insider explained.
She wasn't just besties with Kylie -- they were like sisters. She lived in Kylie's guest house.
"And," the source added. "That she’s doing her own thing and living her life comfortably."
She wants to prove that she can do things on her own, without the aid of her billionaire ex-bestie.
We would like to believe that the fractured friendship can be repaired, but we don't know if ti's really happening.
What we do know is that we hope that Stassie was paying close attention when Kylie suddenly severed all ties with Jordyn.
She did it because of Khloe's temper tantrum. Because Khloe wanted someone safe to blame after she chose to have a baby with a known cheater.
Stassie and Kylie may be like sisters, but when the Kardashians talk about "the power of family," they're talking about blood relations.
One day, Stassie might find herself discarded, blacklisted, and humiliated just like Jordyn was. Enjoy this friendship while it lasts, girl.
