Jordyn Woods has definitely made lemonade out of her lemons. But, while everything is sweet, she needs to make some major changes before it turns sour … again.
JW is the cover girl for the September issue over Cosmopolitan UK. The mag talks to the 21-year-old model about “trolls, trust, and the truth” — which translates to Khloe, Kylie and Tristan.

SEPTEMBER BABY 💛 thank you @cosmopolitanuk for giving me the opportunity to be your cover girl for my favorite month of the year. Thank you UK for always showing me so much love over the years. I can’t wait to share the rest of this shoot with you this week 💛 the young tomboy little girl in me is shaking. wearing my LA BABY lashes with @eylureofficial and a FIRST LOOK at my hair collab with @easilockshair 😬 wearing the pony.. only a few more weeks until you can get yours!
Now, granted, this is probably the topic a lot of people are still interested in hearing her speak about (which is why the mag asked), but, she’s already spoke about it on Red Table Talk with Jada Pinkett Smith. And to continue to do so gives the story traction, which turns into headlines, which turns into a constant stream of stories that still link Jordyn and Kylie, the former BFFs. If Jordyn really wants to cement herself as a force to be reckoned with in Hollywood, she needs to do so on her own name, not the drama of the past. So, while we’ll show you her quotes from this interview, we hope it’s the last time we ever have to do so.
On The Whole “Tristan Incident”:
“I didn’t know how to feel. I was like, ‘That didn’t just happen.’ 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.'”
“I just need[ed] some time by myself to try to understand what [was] happening, why it [was] happening, and how am I going to react to this internally, you know? How can I make things right with myself, with God and with my relationships? It took some time off in order for me to have a level head on how I should react.”
On NOT Clapping-Back After Khloe Blamed Her For Breaking Up Their Family:
“I don’t believe in clapping back, or reacting out of emotion. I could have handled this a million different ways, but I just went with what felt the most natural to me. Would I ever have wanted this to happen? Never. But shit happens. And in the end, I never want to see anyone hurt; I would hate to be the reason for anyone’s pain. We all have to go to sleep with ourselves at night.”
“I don’t really care to share my whole life on social media, because certain things are special and once you share it, you open yourself up to people’s opinions. People got to see me at my most vulnerable moment without even really knowing me, because I don’t showcase who I am, really.”
On Being “Cancelled”:
“The internet feels so entitled to have opinions about everything, but a lot of it is bullshit. These are real people, with real lives. People are so detached that they don’t feel empathy, they don’t feel bad, they don’t realise that the one message that you sent laughing at someone could be the message that pushes that person off the ledge.”
On The Current Status Of Her Relationship With Kylie:
“I love her. That’s my homie. I hope everything falls into place and that we can all grow and build our relationships with our family and God and come back together one day and be stronger and happier.”
She added, “A lot of people can be around when things are good, but you don’t know who’s really around until things are bad.”
So, what’s the big takeaway?
“It’s not about public statements for me and it’s unfortunate that something so private had to happen publicly… Let’s stick together. The world is so crazy. Our politics, our wars, our this, that and the other, the last thing we need is to start going against each other about things on social media. Let’s be better humans and learn from our mistakes.”
“I’ve had to grow up in front of everyone’s eyes — between losing my dad, this, relationships, whatever it is,” she concluded. “I’ve had to deal with so much, [but] my life could be way worse.”
