The Kardashians are not a family who are known for having a chilled, drama-free existence.

And Jordyn Woods, a former friend of the clan, became embroiled in a huge drama herself in 2019.

What (allegedly) happened?

Woods was accused of kissing Tristan Thompson, then on/off boyfriend and babydaddy of Kylie Jenner’s sister Khloe Kardashian.

Details of the incident are still murky but Woods claims that reports of her entanglement with her former bestie's sister's boyfriend are greatly exaggerated and that she was being penalised.

The Kardashians, however, doubled down, with Khloe accusing Woods of being the reason she and Thompson, with whom she shares a daughter, True, split up. (She later retracted this).

People weren’t as convinced, and there’s been extensive pushback against the way the Kardashians targeted Woods via social media and for content on their reality TV how.

And in a new interview, Woods, hints at what that experience did to her.

Speaking to Page Six, she discussed mental health, saying she’d “you name it, I’ve probably gone through it”

“A lot of people, whether you’re a public figure or a regular person, I think that we don’t talk about our struggles enough or we don’t address certain things,” she said.

“One of the biggest illnesses in the United States right now and probably the world is mental health. I think that now talking about your healing is getting somewhat normalized, but I don’t think enough.

Continuing, Woods said:

Whether it’s trauma, loss, bullying, confidence, you name it, I’ve probably gone through it. 

I think you just have to take a second to be still and try to shut out the noise and really figure yourself out.

Journaling — I know it sounds really cliche or so basic, but sometimes you realize that less is more and getting back to the basics is more important than anything else … 

Sticking around family and friends and people that show you support no matter what. 

Luckily, I’m blessed to have a very supportive and loving family. Regardless of what we go through, they’re always there.

If Jordyn Woods can survive this very public fallout, we can get through this day.
