Say it ain’t so! Almost five months have passed since JordynGate, and now we’re being told Jordyn Woods was spotted with another former Kardashian fling. Following the news of Woods partying with James Harden, there was only one question on everyone’s minds: is Khloé Kardashian’s ex Harden dating Woods? Thankfully, sources have come forward insisting that their run-in was accidental. But given the way things played out last time Woods accidentally got herself into a situation with one of Khloé’s exes, we’re not so sure the Kardashian fam will feel like giving her the benefit of the doubt.
Yesterday, TMz reported that Woods and NBA star Harden were seen together at Belle Station, a bar in Houston, Texas. (Kardashian and Hardin dated from 2015 to 2016, a few months before she met Thompson.) TMZ obtained what appears to be Snapchat video footage of the evening, featuring Woods and Harden smoking hookah and dancing. (Watch the video here.) Sources have told TMZ that Woods and Harden go way back — as in, back to when Khloé and Tristan Thompson were still an item. And while those same sources claim Woods received Khloé’s blessing to be friends with her ex, other parties deny that claim, saying Khloé was never aware the two were spending time together.
Soon after TMZ’s initial report, the outlet published a follow-up with new information, in which sources close to Woods claimed that her meeting with Harden was by pure coincidence, and that nothing romantic is going on between the two.

These sources told TMZ that Woods had stopped by in Houston, after wrapping up work on a project in New Orleans. She ran into Harden at the VIP station of the bar, and some of Harden’s friends were apparently friends with Woods’s friends, so the group hung out. The sources also claim that Woods spent hardly any time interacting with Harden specifically while at the bar — and importantly, they neither arrived nor left together.
For those in need of a JordynGate refresher: Back in February, Woods allegedly kissed Khloé’s ex (and the father of her baby, True) Tristan Thompson at a party. What followed was a mass Kardashian ex-communication of Woods, who had previously been Kylie Jenner’s best friend and even lived in her house. While the public was indignant on Khloé’s behalf at the time, opinion has shifted somewhat as the shaming and perceived “bullying” of Woods wore on.
Woods appears to still not be on speaking terms with the Kar-Jenner clan, but we’re very curious to see if — and when — they’ll have a response to this latest bit of news.
