Khloé Kardashian Called Jordyn Woods 'Baby Girl' a Day Before the Tristan Thompson Scandal Broke
On Monday, Woods, 21, posted two photos of herself on Instagram showing off her new braids — and Kardashian, 34, dropped a sweet compliment in the comments.
“Baby girl,” she wrote.
On Tuesday, TMZ and Hollywood Unlocked reported that Kardashian and the Cleveland Cavaliers player had called it quits after he was unfaithful with Woods, who is also a member of the Good American squad, representing and previously modeling for Kardashian’s clothing brand.
Within an hour of the reports, the NBA star issued an apparent denial, writing “FAKE NEWS” in all caps before deleting the tweet.
Reps for Kardashian and Thompson have not returned PEOPLE’s requests for comment. Woods’ rep had no comment.
A source told PEOPLE that Kardashian and her family found out about the alleged tryst on Monday.
“The whole family is furious,” the source said. “They were blindsided.”
Another source said they are “beyond angry and disgusted” with Woods.
A third source told PEOPLE that Thompson attended a house party on Sunday and allegedly made out with another guest, though the source did not know if that person was Woods.

The scandal comes almost a year after photos and videos leaked of Thompson getting close to other women just days before Kardashian gave birth to their daughter baby True last April. Though the new mom initially forgave Thompson and stuck by him, things had taken a turn for the worse in recent weeks.
“Khloé has acted like she is single for a while,” a source told PEOPLE on Tuesday. “She is focused on herself, her daughter and their life in L.A. She isn’t spending time with Tristan. She doesn’t act like she is planning a future with him. All because she can’t trust him. She constantly hears rumors of inappropriate behavior when it comes to Tristan.”
Kardashian briefly addressed the allegations on Tuesday, commenting on an Instagram post about the scandal with several yelling emojis. Her best friend Malika Haqq also commented, writing “STRONG FACTS.” On another Instagram post, Haqq seemingly slammed Woods, writing “these h— ain’t loyal” in a since-deleted comment captured by Instagram account Comments by Celebs.
