Jordyn Woods talks Tristan Thompson cheating scandal, Kylie Jenner and online trolls in candid interview

Jordyn Woods, the 'ex-best friend' of makeup mogul Kylie Jenner, has opened up about the tumultuous cheating scandal that destroyed her reputation as one of the Kardashian's closest friends and confidantes.  

In a candid new interview with Cosmopolitan UK, the social media starlet revealed emotional details about the kiss that broke the internet. 

"I didn't know how to feel. I was like, 'That didn't just happen," the 21-year-old told Cosmopolitan.

Woods was subjected to global backlash after she was caught sharing a kiss with basketball player Tristan Thompson, the father of Khloe Kardashian's child, during an afterparty at his home in February.

The brief moment of intimacy turned into a highly-publicised cheating scandal, and drastically impacted Woods' friendship with Kylie Jenner and the Kardashian clan. 

"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 social media personality revealed.

"I took some time off in order for me to have a level head on how I should react."

The 21-year-old was targeted by an intense campaign of internet hate in the wake of the incident as Kardashian fans and online 'trolls' made it their mission to punish her as much as possible.

"I don't believe in reacting out of emotion," she says. "It becomes addictive to look on the internet when I would look at my name and see all the things that people were saying, it became like a tumour. It became cancerous to me.

"People are so detached that they don't feel empathy. They don't realise that the one message that you sent laughing at someone could be the message that pushes that person off the bridge."

The saga sent Woods' long-time friendship with Khloe Kardashian's half-sister into disrepair. She was booted from the mansion she shared with the lip-kit billionaire after confessing to the kiss in a tell-all interview.

Woods says she holds no hard feelings towards her former friend.

"I hope everything falls into place and we can all grow and build our relationships with our family and God," she says.

"[I hope] we can come back together one day and be stronger and happier."
