The shocking news of Jordyn Woodsalleged cheating scandal with Khloé Kardashian‘s boyfriend Tristan Thompson has been hitting Kylie Jenner especially hard.

Jenner, 21, considered Woods, 21, her closest friend and confidante for years. In fact, the duo shared such a close bond that they commemorated their friendship in permanent ink, getting matching tattoos nearly three years ago.

In May 2016, the duo honored their longterm bond (they’ve been BFFs since the summer after eighth grade, Woods explained in the Life of Kylie season premiere) with tiny red friendship tattoos on their inner pinkies, inked by popular celeb tattoo artist JonBoy.

Although Jenner and Woods never publicly revealed the meaning of the small red “M” squiggle tattoo on their fingers, the Kylie Cosmetics mogul showed off their special body art on Instagram shortly after visiting JonBoy.

Jenner and Woods’ friendship status still remains up in the air. After news of the alleged tryst broke, sources tell PEOPLE that the makeup mogul has been distraught over potentially losing her best friend to such a deep betrayal.

“For Kylie, it’s much more difficult. She has basically lost part of her world,” said the source. “She is very, very upset. She always trusted Jordyn with everything.”

Up until the scandal, Woods had been living in Jenner’s house (she moved back to her mom’s home after the news unfolded), accompanying her on lavish vacations and helping take care of her daughter Stormi.

When the Kardashian family first started hearing the news they felt “blindsided.”

“When they first started hearing on Monday that Tristan made out with Jordyn, no one really believed it,” one source said. “That Tristan would be inappropriate, yes everyone knows that he can’t behave, but that Jordyn would make out with him, it first seemed like a made up rumor.”

“It wasn’t anything they wanted to drop,” the source added. “So several family members reached out to people they believed had been at the party. And they were told it was true.”

Thompson immediately shut down the allegations on Twitter by writing “FAKE NEWS” in a now-deleted post. Woods spoke out publicly for the first time since the scandal on Thursday while addressing gatherers during the launch event for her Eylure X Jordyn Woods Lashes in Los Angeles.

“Thank you guys for coming out and supporting me through everything that’s going on,” she said. “It’s been real, and Eylure has been super real with a project I’ve been working on for over nine months right now.”
