On Tuesday evening, the wonderful news broke that Khloe Kardashian finally dumped Tristan Thompson's cheating butt.
There was only one complication.
The catalyst for this long-overdue breakup was that Tristan was caught making out with Jordyn Woods.
Jordyn is Kylie Jenner's BFF.
We know that some people use the term best friend casually, but for Kylie and Jordyn, their friendship is no joke.
To understand how huge the fallout from this Tristan tryst is, you first need to know a bit more about Jordyn.
Who is she?
Who is she?
Jordyn Woods is a super hot model whose mother is a popular L.A. socialite. But that's not how most people know her. ...
She's been Kylie's BFF for years
Jordyn first caught people's attention in around 2013, and she and Kylie have only grown closer over the years. She's appeared in Kylie's Snaps, on her Insta, and featured prominently on Life of Kylie.
She's like Stormi's second mom
Jordyn was there for Kylie's positive pregnancy test, as well as for ultrasounds and check-ups. She told Kylie from day one that she'd act as if they were both pregnant. She has a very close bond with baby Stormi.
Also, she and Kylie live together
This has really helped to cement her place as Stormi's second mom. Her BFF status with Kylie goes a long way. (Also, big yikes about Kylie's skin tone matching those of Jordyn and Stormi; there's a line between tanning and blackface)
Jordyn follows in Kylie's footsteps
She has an activewear line, a line of false lashes, and even collaborated with Kylie on a lip kit for Kylie Cosmetics.
It's worked out well for her
Jordyn not only has a close bond with Kylie and with the Kardashian clan, but her estimated net worth is around $5 million.
That is why fans were so stunned by this scandal
Did Jordyn risk some of the most important relationships in her life just to make out with Tristan Thompson? Let's take a look.
First, Jordyn tweeted this vague line
On its own, her tweet could have been about cutting off anyone, right? But then, on Tuesday, we learned so much more ...
is Jordyn a homewrecker?
TMZ reports that Khloe's final straw for breaking up with her cheating boyfriend was when he was caught making out with Jordyn.
Of course, this wasn't his first misdeed
Multiple reports from the past several weeks have claimed that he was back to his old tricks again, flirting with women at bars and even spending alone time with them.
In fact ...
A lot of people had just assumed that he and Khloe had quietly broken up some time this month. According to reports, they didn't even share dinner together on Valentine's Day.
Tristan says the report isn't true
The notorious cheater says that THIS time, the extremely credible reports of him making out with a hot girl aren't true. Sure.
Some fans assumed they were broken up
But if Tristan were truly single, Jordyn would know, right? Kylie and Khloe have always had a close bond despite their significant age gap. And Kylie and Jordyn are BFFs. Or they WERE, anyway ...
Kylie is "reeling"
She apparently feels betrayed. Reports say that the entire Kardashian clan is writing off Jordyn ... though apparently everyone is still following both Jordyn and Tristan on Instagram. Are they waiting until the dust settles to avoid the Kim-and-Tristan blocking drama from spring 2018? Maybe.
This is a complicated situation
Some would say that Jordyn did Khloe a favor. When your man makes out with your little sister's best friend at a party, it's no longer just a rumor or innuendo -- it's right there in front of your face. it's a wakeup call about the man with whom you've been wasting your time.
But it's also, you know, a betrayal
Strange women who boned Tristan but never met Khloe don't owe Khloe anything. Jordyn, though, has been a part of her life for years. Jordyn shouldn't be going behind Khloe's back, even if Tristan is definitely the guiltier party, here.
The fallout from all of this is no joke
Jordyn isn't just a friend -- she's Kylie's best friend. The two of them have shared business interests, years of personal history, and Jordyn is like a second mom to baby Stormi. Oh, and they live together. It's awkward as heck.
Fans cannot wrap their heads around it
To quote Michael from NBC's The Good Place: "Humans make a lot of mistakes when they're horny."
Did Jordyn wreck Khloe's life and her own in one fell swoop?
If anything, Tristan wrecked Khloe's life. Jordyn arguably f--ked up, but she probably did Khloe a favor.
Will Jordyn find forgiveness?
It's possible. Khloe has shared a number of cryptic messages (her new favorite pastime, apparently) that appear to be directed at Woods and others.
Khloe is dropping hints that Jordyn is too close to write off
"If your friendship has lasted longer than 7 years, you are no longer friends," reads a cryptic text post shared by Khloe. "You are family." Does that mean that, as pissed as she is with Jordyn, she'll forgive her?
Khloe's definitely extending olive branches
In the summer of 2018, there were reports that Khloe was icing out or straight-up cutting off people who criticized her for staying with Tristan Thompson after his cheating scandal. If she cut off friendships or made people walk on eggshells around her, maybe she's regretting that now.
There's one thing that we know for sure
Tristan effed up, for the bajillionth time. We're not questioning the dude's hotness, but he's not worth anyone making a fool of themselves or damaging their relationships. Not for Khloe, Jordyn, or (indirectly) for Kylie. Don't let a man ruin something beautiful.
