Jordyn Woods is showing a lot of love for Kylie Jenner, and we wonder if after reading her latest words the KUWTK starlet will hit the “Follow” button again.

The model sat down with Cosmopolitan UK for their September issue, which she gorgeously stars on the cover of, to talk all things social media, the Tristan Thompson scandal, and her former BFF.

While Kylie has unfollowed Jordyn on Instagram amid reports she was hanging out with another of Khloé Kardashian‘s exes, James Harden, the 21-year-old only hopes they can reconcile in the future:

“I love her. That’s my homie. I hope everything falls into place and that we can all grow and build our relationships with our family and God and come back together one day and be stronger and happier.”

She continued about her relationships with people she can trust:

“A lot of people can be around when things are good, but you don’t know who’s really around until things are bad.”

Hopefully that’s no shade to Stormi Webster‘s momma as her former bestie couldn’t have been stuck in a harder position.

As fans already remember, Woods confessed Tristan kissed her in her Red Table Talk interview with Jada Pinkett Smith, and denied anything further happening between them. Recalling the night it all went down, she explained:

“I didn’t know how to feel. I was like, ‘That didn’t just happen’. I [told him] ‘I need to go.’ I was leaving already so I walked out immediately. I got in the car. I was in shock.”

After the controversial incident, Jordyn felt the only way she could process what went down was by isolating herself:

“I just need[ed] some time by myself to try to understand what [was] happening, why it [was] happening, and how am I going to react to this internally, you know? How can I make things right with myself, with God and with my relationships? It took some time off in order for me to have a level head on how I should react.”

And despite getting called out by Khloé for allegedly lying during her Red Table Talk interview, along with breaking up the reality TV starlet’s family, the former Good American model confessed she’s not into clapbacks herself:

“I don’t believe in clapping back, or reacting out of emotion. I could have handled this a million different ways, but I just went with what felt the most natural to me. Would I ever have wanted this to happen? Never. But s**t happens. And in the end, I never want to see anyone hurt; I would hate to be the reason for anyone’s pain. We all have to go to sleep with ourselves at night.”

It can’t be easy, especially for someone who said she became obsessed with the internet’s perception of her following the scandal:

“It becomes addictive to look on the internet, to look at your name. When I would look at my name and see all of the things that people were saying, it became like a tumor. It became cancerous to me.”

Woods, who doesn’t want to share her “whole life on social media,” continued:

“The internet feels so entitled to have opinions about everything, but a lot of it is bulls**t. These are real people, with real lives. People are so detached that they don’t feel empathy, they don’t feel bad, they don’t realize that the one message that you sent laughing at someone could be the message that pushes that person off the ledge.”

One example, where she believes the online abuse was targeted at her because of her race, was right after the incident with Tristan:

“The first picture I posted on Instagram afterwards was a photo of me with short hair, which was a weave. I cut it; I just wanted short hair. I posted it and all the memes going around were, ‘Oh, Jordyn can’t afford hair extensions any more, she’s so broke.'”

Even five months following the kiss, Jordyn is still getting flack online. Just one look at the comments on her latest Instagram posts can show you that.

What do U think, Perezcious readers?? Can she and Kylie ever be friends again? Will she ever be able to move on from the scandal?
