Tristan Thompson and Jordyn Woods planned on sticking to the same story and denying their alleged hookup to the Kardashian-Jenner family, a source tells PEOPLE.

“It seemed she had an agreement with Tristan that they would deny hooking up if they got caught,” the source says, adding that the basketball player, 27, had assured the 21-year-old model that “no one would find out.”

“Jordyn was shocked when the family did find out and confronted her,” continues the source, who says Woods initially denied their alleged tryst. “Jordyn acted very distraught. But the family feels that she is mostly upset that she got caught.”

Reps for Woods, Thompson and the Cleveland Cavaliers, the NBA team for which Thompson plays, did not immediately return PEOPLE’s requests for comment.

As for Thompson, the source says “Tristan didn’t seem like he cared too much” about the cheating scandal.

“He seemed to mind the drama, but didn’t act like he regretted hooking up with Jordyn. He actually denied, too, and has had no explanation since as to why it happened,” the source adds.

Thompson has publicly addressed the rumors that he cheated on Kardashian with Woods. After TMZ and Hollywood Unlocked reported on Tuesday that Thompson was unfaithful with Woods, Thompson tweeted and then deleted a post on Twitter reading, “FAKE NEWS,” seemingly denying the reports.

Multiple sources previously confirmed to PEOPLE that the KarJenners were “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.”

Despite the fact that Kardashian has deleted all photos of Thompson on her Instagram shared since daughter True’s birth in April 2018, including a family photo of the trio taken on Thanksgiving, an insider says she doesn’t plan on letting her emotions get in the way of Thompson’s relationship with their 10-month-old child.

“She’s very good at compartmentalizing and at the end of the day, she wants True to have a happy relationship with both of her parents,” a source close to Kardashian told PEOPLE.

On Saturday, Kardashian posted a series of cryptic quotes on her Instagram Stories about how difficult times are only temporary.

“Don’t let shame keep you from asking for the support you want. Suffering is done in silence, end it with speaking up. Everyone has a dark chapter. Make your shadows go away by shining light on yours,” the first quote read, striking a hopeful note. “Find the encouragement and strength needed to face the sun. Remember clouds are always temporary. Believe it gets better.”

“We have to accept that some people are really f— up and it’s not our job to heal them,” another slide read.

Kardashian still follows Thompson on Instagram, although she has unfollowed Woods.

Although Kardashian has not confirmed her split from Thompson, the latest scandal could be what she needs to “finally be able to move on,” an insider previously told PEOPLE.

The couple weathered their first public scandal last April when photos and videos surfaced of Thompson getting close to other women just days before Kardashian gave birth to their daughter. Though the new mom initially forgave the basketball player, they took a downward turn in recent weeks, living apart and spending barely any time together.

“Khloé is doing okay. She’s still upset about what happened and talks about it a lot. But it really seems she is able to see what everyone else has been seeing for so long — that she was always too good for Tristan,” the insider said. “She deserves so much better.”
