Super-awkward is the one word that comes to mind when you think about two people who know one another but aren’t excited to meet come face-to-face.
And that is exactly what happened when Hailey Baldwin and Jordyn Woods met at the Coachella festival. Woods, who’s look was overall funky, was spotted with Jaden Smith at the event. If you don’t know this already, know that the Woods and the Smiths are pretty close. In fact, it was Jaden who had introduced Jordyn to her former BFF Kylie Jenner.
Why was the moment odd, you ask? Because Hailey is a close friend of Kendall Jenner’s whom she was at the music festival with. Onlookers reported that while Kendall was not around when Mrs. Justin Bieber went in for hugging Jaden, Jordyn was standing right there. The result? Photographic proof that Hailey Baldwin just wanted to leave the planet at that instant.
A source has also revealed to Page Six that coincidentally, Jordyn and Jaded were seated under the same cabana as Kylie and her caboodle. Does this mean that any bullying happened from Jenner’s side? Not really.
The insider said, “Kendall’s group turned their back toward Jordyn. Jordyn eventually got up and left.” Um, looks like they did make Jordyn feel uncomfortable enough to want to just disappear. Reports say that Kylie Jenner was also present there in a sparkly mini-dress but the ex-pals didn’t meet, neither did cameras catch them in each other’s vicinity.
Only recently have these two went their separate ways after the Tristan-Jordyn scandal erupted. Though fans first had sided up with Khloe Kardashian, Kylie’s half-sister and Tristan’s baby momma, when they noticed the raging bullying that was directed Jordyn’s way from the Kardashian klan and heard Jordyn’s version of the story on Red Table Talks, they immediately ran to Woods’ side.
Looking at all the harsh backlash that Khloe was getting, Khloe immediately took her words back. Remember, she had said that Jordyn Woods was the reason her family had fallen apart? What’s more, fans also wanted Kylie Jenner to at least lend an empathetic ear to her former BFF, but she made it clear that she wasn’t up for that.
In fact, Kylie’s response to Jordyn’s side of the story was the opposite of that of the masses. After the interview she became, “more steadfast than ever that Jordyn wronged Khloe…and their friendship would never be the same,” as per TMZ.
Another question that comes to mind is this – did Jordyn pick Jaden Smith as her partner for the event because she needed support? After the controversy, though her career has started doing better, she’s been given a lot of hate as well.
The Smiths have been with Jordyn throughout this ugly phase. It was Jada Pinkett Smith who had given Jordyn a platform where she could tell her story without judgement. According to Jordyn, she wasn’t interested or invested in Khloe’s then-boyfriend Tristan Thompson.
In fact, it was him who had leaned down to plant a kiss on her lips unexpectedly. The only reason, Woods didn’t mention this to the Kardashian-Jenners was that she didn’t want them to hurt. If you peep at KUWTK’s season 16 trailer, there’s a very obvious shout by Khloe who is assumedly watching the Jordyn-featuring episode of Red Table Talks.
Khloe is heard screaming “liar” at the screen in quite a dramatic way, a move that made the audience believe that the Kardashians are juicing this scandal for maximum views. Combine Khloe’s comment about Jordyn with Kylie’s response and you’d think there’s still more to this controversy than the bits that the audience knows. Only the next episodes of Keep Up with the Kardashians will reveal this.
