The reported demise of Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson’s relationship is on the minds of many, as the rumored circumstances seem too wild to “Keep Up” with or believe. Outlets are linking Thompson to Kardashian’s sister, Kylie Jenner’s BFF, model Jordyn Woods. Plus, Kardashian and her friends appear to have responded to drama on social media.
USA TODAY has reached out to Kardashian, Thompson and Woods for comment.
Thompson appeared to respond to speculation Tuesday when he tweeted and then deleted “FAKE NEWS.” Kardashian, who shares 10-month-old daughter True with the Cleveland Cavalier, also seemed to comment on the alleged scandal. The website Hollywood Unlocked share a video to Instagram Tuesday about the supposed cheating that caught the attention of Kardashian, her bestie Malika Haqq, and Larsa Pippen.
“One of our contributors was at #TristanThompson’s house party and saw what went down!” the caption alleged. “@kyliejennerwe need you to address some thangs with @jordynwoods … Who needs to go?! Comment below!”
Kardashian responded to the post with eight shouting emojis. Haqq commented “STRONG FACTS,” and Pippen replied “Amen!!!”

Naturally, with the supposed drama, some Twitter users’ heads exploded and they needed facts.
“i’m about to drop out of college so i can go investigate this Jordyn Woods and Tristan Thompson situation,” a user shared. “Khloe, girl, i’m coming!”
Similarly another tweeted: “PSA: Until 100% proven, I will be conducting a research project for the public on the Tristan/jordyn/Khloe conundrum. Zero work will be done. Thank you for your patience during this time.”
“I can’t get over the (alleged) cheating scandal of Khloe and Tristan and Jordan (sic) I need to know as soon as possible what the deal is in order to continue with my day to day life,” another post read.
Another fan expressed shock over the reports.
The topic resonated even with those normally tuned out to the family.
“i don’t do celebrity drama, that’s out of my tax bracket…” a user posted, “but this tristan, khloe, jordyn drama is spicy…”
“me: i literally could not care LESS (about) the kardashians!!!!” a user wrote, adding a Kim Kardashian West GIF to show they were glued to the reported drama.
Another predicted being entranced if the topic was covered on “KUWTK” with the help of Homer Simpson. (Thompson’s cheating was addressed in a November episode of the reality show.)
Others had suspicions about the alleged scandal being revealed so close to the Season 16 premiere date of the family’s reality show, March 31.
“Just letting y’all know KUWTK comes back on in March. So this Kylie, khloe, Jordyn, tristan drama is very convenient don’t you think?” a person asked.
Some went as far as to speculate it was momager extraordinaire Kris Jenner behind the hoopla.
“Kris Jenner trying to leak the Tristan/Jordyn/Khloe scandal to all the news before the next season of KUWTK” a member of the Twittersphere mused.
“Kris Jenner spilling all the tea to TMZ about Jordyn Tristan Khloe and Kylie,” a person wrote sharing a GIF of an excited Jenner on phone. “The devil works hard but Kris Jenner works harder”
