I was like, ‘That didn’t just happen,’” Woods said, explaining that the kiss came out of nowhere. “I told him, ‘I need to go.’ I was leaving already so I walked out immediately. I got in the car. I was in shock. You know that saying ‘I feel so alone in a room full of people’? I went through a phase of thinking, ‘I’m going to isolate myself because I don’t know how I feel. I don’t know what the right thing to do is.’”

The end of Keeping Up With The Kardashians Season 16 concluded with a two-part finale surrounding the drama of the Jordyn Woods-Tristan Thompson cheating scandal.

“I think that this whole Jordyn situation needed to happen for a reason—for me, for her, for you, for everybody,” Kylie started. “She was my security blanket. She lived with me. We did everything together. I just felt like, ‘Oh, I have Jordyn. I don’t need anything else.’ And I feel like there’s a part of me that needed to grow without her. Sometimes people are there for certain reasons at certain times in your life and then not there for others.”
Khloé replied, “I really respect in you that you’re really good at being calm even when you probably do want to scream at someone.”

She continued, “Tristan is equally to blame but Tristan is the father of my child. Regardless of what he does to me I won’t do that to my daughter. He has been addressing this situation PRIVATELY. If Tristan were to lie publicly about what conspired,then yes I would address him publicly as well”

Jordyn confirmed that she and Tristan did go to a club with some friends before returning to his house for an after party. But she did not make out with him. After the party, when the sun was rising, Jordyn told Tristan that she was leaving. He walked her to the door, which is when she said that he kissed her. “On the way out, he did kiss me,” she said. “[There was] no passion, no nothing…he just kissed me.” Woods made clear that there was no tongue involved. She also denied claims that she and Thompson slept together.
“Never. Never a thought, never a consideration, never happened, and never will I,” she said. “And that’s why I’m willing to be put up to the test. Attach me to a lie detector, whatever it is. I need people to know the truth, and more importantly, I need the people involved to know the truth.”
The next day, Jordyn said she told Kylie Jenner and Khloé that she attended a party at Thompson’s house. When Kardashian asked her what happened, she omitted the detail of the kiss, explaining that she was “trying to protect Khloé’s heart.” “I had talked to Kylie and Khloé in the morning and I told them I was there,” she said. “I had talked to Khloé and she asked me what was going on, if everything was fine. In my head, in trying to forget that part of the story, I was just like, ‘No, he was chilling, everything was okay. There were girls there but he wasn’t all over the girls.’”
She continued, “I know I am not the reason that Tristan and Khloé are not together. This situation may have made it harder for her to want to be with him, and I understand, that but I know I’m not the reason.” Woods also noted that she has called and texted Kardashian many times to apologize.”
