Kylie Jenner’s BFF Stassie Karanikolaou reveals she also cut Jordyn Woods out of her life, but insists it was for her ‘own reasons’… three years after Tristan Thompson kissing scandal
When asked if she is still acquainted with Jordyn, 24, the Instagram model, also 24, said: ‘Oh no. For my own reasons. This is the first time… I’m ever saying this but it’s for my own reason.’
‘It’s not…I was not following anyone else. I’ve had my own reasons and that’s it,’ the social media star added.

Though childhood friends since they were 10, Stassie became the Kylie Cosmetics founder’s ride or die after her fallout with Woods following the Tristan Thompson cheating scandal.
The Kardashian-Jenner clan cut Jordyn out of their lives after Khloe Kardashian’s, 37, then boyfriend, 31, – who she shares daughter True, four, with – was accused of kissing her at a party in 2019.
The scandal meant the end of Jordyn’s years-long friendship with the family, and drove a wedge between herself and BFF Kylie Jenner.

Not following the Kardashians: ‘It’s not…I was not following anyone else. I’ve had my own reasons and that’s it,’ she added
In the aftermath, the social media influencer appeared on an episode of Jada Pinkett Smith’s Facebook Watch series, Red Table Talk, and addressed the scandal, denying that ‘anything intimate’ happened with Thompson, other than resting her legs on his.
‘Never once was I giving him a lap dance, making out with him, sitting all over him. It’s just … we’re all together. We’re in a group. Never once did we leave the public area [and] go to a bedroom [or] a bathroom.’
However, she admitted that Thompson kissed her as she was leaving the party: ‘[There was] no passion, no nothing. He just kissed me … it was a kiss on the lips. No tongue … no making out.’

Khloe, publicly called Jordyn out on Twitter after the model shared her side of the story and said she wasn’t the reason that Khloe and Tristan broke up.
‘Why are you lying @jordynwoods??’ Khloe tweeted at the time. ‘If you’re going to try and save yourself by going public, INSTEAD OF CALLING ME PRIVATELY TO APOLOGIZE FIRST, at least be HONEST about your story. BTW, You ARE the reason my family broke up!’
Jordyn has since moved on and is now dating 26-year-old NBA player Karl-Anthony Towns.
Meanwhile Khloe – who first reconciled with Tristan after the incident – split up with the athlete last year after learning that he got another woman, by the name of Maralee Nichols, pregnant while they were together.
Khloe recently spoke about Tristan during a one-hour special hosted by Robin Roberts, 61, where she said: ‘I still think he’s a great guy, he’s a great dad. He’s just not the guy for me.’
