If the past couple of weeks have taught us anything, it’s that the world is truly the Kardashian’s and we’re just living in it.

The recent Kardashian and Jenner cheating drama is messy and all around wild, but let’s get right into it and separate the rumours from the even crazier facts.

Tristan/Khloe/Jordyn drama

We’re going to back it up all the way to 2016. 

Khloe Kardashian was first spotted out with NBA Cleveland Cavalier’s player Tristan Thompson three years ago. When we started to hear about him on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, we were thrilled Khloe had finally found her Toronto-born Prince Charming. 

Cut to April of 2018, days before their daughter, True Thompson, was born. TMZ released video footage of Thompson making out and going back to his hotel with a woman on two separate occasions. Kardashian was in labour in Cleveland at the time, with her family across the country in California.

It seemed as if Kardashian and Thompson had worked things out, since Khloe confirmed to Andy Cohen that the couple had reconciled in a January episode of Watch What Happens Live.

All seemed well with the happy parents until one fateful February night. Enter Jordyn Woods—Kylie Jenner’s best friend and housemate.

On Feb. 19, TMZ broke the news that Thompson and Woods “were all over each other” and “making out” at a house party the weekend prior. 

Thompson and Woods “were all over each other” and “making out” at a house party the weekend prior.

A gossip website called Hollywood Unlocked posted a video to Instagram where Jason Lee, the website’s CEO, confirmed that some of his staff were at the party and also saw Thompson and Woods together.

Although this news seemed too wild to be true, Khloe Kardashian’s best friend Malika Haqq commented “STRONG FACTS” on Hollywood Unlocked’s Instagram and Kardashian herself chimed in with a shouting head emoji. 

These social media responses all but confirmed the story and were followed by reports that Jordyn Woods moved out of Kylie Jenner’s house.

On Feb. 27, Woods posted an Instagram live video of her walking on set of Jada Pinkett-Smith’s FacebookWatch show, Red Table Talk. Fans immediately knew Woods would be addressing the scandal.

Woods appeared on Pinkett-Smith’s show two days later and told her side of the story. She claimed she and her friends were out at a party and were later invited back to someone’s house. As they were on their way, Woods found out it was Thompson’s house but still decided to go. While there, she sat with her legs dangling over Thompson’s legs. As she got up to leave, Thompson kissed her.

Although Woods told Kylie and Khloe that she’d been at Thompson’s house, she didn’t initially tell them about the kiss.

Immediately following the interview on Red Table Talk, Khloe Kardashian tweeted, “Why are you lying @jordynwoods ?? 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!”

The next day, Khloe took to Twitter again, this time tweeting “What’s been harder & more painful is being hurt by someone so close to me. Someone whom I love & treat like a little sister. But Jordyn is not to be blamed for the breakup of my family. This was Tristan’s fault.”

Travis Scott/Kylie Jenner cheating drama

Amidst all the drama with Khloe and Tristan, fans were left wondering whether Travis Scott is another unfaithful Kar-Jenner baby daddy.

Although signs of Scott’s alleged cheating are much more subtle, the rapper cancelled a concert in Buffalo, New York after rumors circulated that Jenner accused Scott of cheating. 

Two days later, Scott deleted his Instagram account, where Kylie apparently found DMs that made her suspicious of her boyfriend.

We haven’t heard anything since, but when performing at Madison Square Garden on March 2, Scott said, “I love ya’ll NYC. I love ya’ll! Thank ya’ll for coming out … I love you wifey!”

The family’s reaction

Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall, Kylie and Kris Jenner have remained tight-lipped on their family’s cheating scandals, except for subtle hints on social media about how they feel. 

Kim Kardashian West took to Twitter to address haters who insulted Khloe for going to a work event days after the scandal broke. “Would you prefer she lose the [money] too? A single mom has to work too boo! This was a professional commitment planned far in advance and you better believe she is not waiting on anyone to pay her bills or provide for her daughter. PERDIODT!!!” West wrote. 

Otherwise, the family has quietly unfollowed Woods and Thompson on social media, with only Kylie continuing to follow her best friend on the social platform.
