Could Khloé Kardashian be the next star of The Bachelorette?

After news broke that Kardashian’s boyfriend Tristan Thompson allegedly hooked up with her sister Kylie Jenner‘s best friend, model Jordyn Woods, the internet has been ablaze about how to find the reality star true love — and now, the ultimate matchmaker has chimed in.

Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss teased the possibility of Kardashian, 34, handing out roses on the famous franchise on Twitter.

“@khloekardashian is very much in contention… Stay tuned!” he wrote after asking fans for their input about who should lead the next season.

But before any official decision can be made, Fleiss knows he needs to seek the permission of one very important person: Hollywood’s most famous momager, Kris Jenner.

“Any decision regarding @khloekardashian as the new #TheBachelorette will need to be approved by my dear friend @KrisJenner …” he wrote, later adding that he’s “in contact” with Jenner about the proposition.

On Tuesday, TMZ and Hollywood Unlocked reported that Kardashian and the Cleveland Cavaliers player, 27, split after he was unfaithful with Woods, who is also a member of the Good American squad, representing Kardashian’s clothing brand.

Multiple sources have confirmed to PEOPLE the famous family was “blindsided” by the reports.

“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.”

On Wednesday, a source confirmed to PEOPLE that 21-year-old Woods, who was previously living at Jenner’s house, is now “moving back to her mom’s house.”

“It’s been a difficult time and she’s broken up about it,” the insider said. “She’s heading home to be with her mom.”

As for Jenner, 21?

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

Reps for Kardashian and Thompson have not returned PEOPLE’s requests for comment. Woods’ rep had no comment.

It’s not the basketball player’s first cheating scandal, either. Last April, videos leaked of Thompson getting close to other women just days before Kardashian gave birth to their daughter True.
