The Smith family and the Kardashian family were once close friends, but a significant social media feud changed everything, particularly altering Jada Pinkett Smith’s allegiances.
Around ten years ago, Kylie Jenner and Jaden Smith were publicly known as good friends, and there were suggestions they briefly dated. A viral photo captured them leaving a movie theater, with Jaden seemingly wearing Jenner’s makeup. Besides their possible romance, their families shared connections. Jenner and Jaden attended the same middle school, and she and Jordyn Woods formed a renowned friendship. However, this bond faced challenges, partly influenced by Jada Pinkett Smith and Woods.
In 2019, Jordyn Woods, who considered the Smiths her second family, faced controversy after allegedly kissing Tristan Thompson, Khloe Kardashian’s ex-partner. The Kardashians reacted strongly on social media, attempting to defend their own. Woods later appeared on Jada Pinkett Smith’s “Red Table Talk” to address the situation, receiving support from the Smiths. Without their backing, the Kardashians’ influence could have severely impacted Woods’ career.
Following Woods’ appearance on “Red Table Talk,” tensions escalated with the Kardashians. Khloe Kardashian publicly challenged Woods’ account, and the drama played out on “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” Meanwhile, Jada Pinkett Smith made a significant statement by unfollowing the entire Kardashian family on social media, except for Kylie Jenner. Despite the chaos, it was revealed that Kris Jenner was aware of Smith’s plan to host Woods on the show, but she didn’t inform her daughters.
Now that Jenner and Woods are rebuilding their friendship, there’s hope that the past drama between the Kardashians and the Smiths can be put to rest.
