Rather than partying it up with Jenner and the rest of her pals in Capri, Italy, for the entrepreneur’s 22nd b-day, the model hung out with her mother, Elizabeth Woods, and her sister, Jodie Woods, at the UOMA Beauty Summer House L.A. party on Saturday, August 10.
“Jordyn was with friends taking selfies almost the entire night, she seemed a little bit sad though,” an eyewitness told Us Weekly of the former Life of Kylie star. “It appeared as if she was trying to hide in the back of her mind that this was … the first birthday she spent without Kylie. You could see that look in her eyes and feel it in her aura.”
Jordyn, 21, appeared especially shaken when Sigma’s “Nobody to Love” — a song Jenner’s brother-in-law Kanye West sampled in “Bound 2” — came on. “You could tell it reminded her of Kylie, she got up at that time for a little and went to a different room and then came back after that part of the mix was over,” the eyewitness told Us.
Throughout the evening, Jordyn was exchanging text messages with an unidentified party. “She kept showing her phone to her sister. It looked like someone had sent her a message and she was showing her to see what she thought of the message and helping her respond,” the eyewitness observed.
Jordyn noted that she was supposed to have been somewhere else on Saturday on Instagram on Sunday, August 11. “Plans got canceled yesterday so I couldn’t let this go to waste,” she wrote of her look, which consisted of a skintight taupe dress.
“Jordyn was feeling sad that night, loosing a best friend is a real loss and she feels that,” an insider told Us.
A separate source claimed to Us that Jordyn’s success is what prompted the Kardashian family to unfollow the social media guru. “They don’t like that Jordyn is profiting from all of this.”
Jordyn, who moved out of Kylie’s home in February after being caught making out with Khloé Kardashian‘s ex Thompson, 28, had nothing but nice things to say about her former bestie to Cosmopolitan U.K. in July.
“I love her,” she said of the entrepreneur. That’s my homie.”
She added: “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. A lot of people can be around when things are good, but you don’t know who’s really around until things are bad.”
Kylie also has no bad wishes for her ex-friend. “Kylie still won’t trash talk Jordyn,” an insider told Us earlier this month. “She doesn’t wish her ill will.”
The source from Saturday’s event told Us that Jordyn is now doing her best to forge ahead. “Jordyn is really sad about what happened, but you have to make the best of things and she is trying to move forward with her life,” the source explained.
Us has reached out to a rep for the Kardashians for response.
