The 21 year old was attacked by the Kardashian, Jenner family and their fans alike and it seemed that was going to be the end for Jordyn Woods and her career.
It has emerged however, that the Tristan Thompson scandal could make Jordyn much richer.
Jordyn had enlisted longtime family friend Jada Pinkett Smith’s help to tell her side of how things went down that fateful Sunday night.
During her Red Table Talk interview, Woods denied that the scandal was a publicity stunt orchestrated by the powers at be (read: Kris Jenner) to promote the upcoming season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Without a doubt though, the show’s ratings will spike thanks to the drama.
But the famous Kardashian/Jenner family wouldn’t be the only beneficiary.
Stacy Jones, CEO of branding agency Hollywood Branded, says that Jordyn Woods’ involvement will only help her career in the long run.
The many ways Jordyn Woods could get richer thanks to the Tristan Thompson scandal
Since news broke that Jordyn Woods made out with Tristan Thopson, she has gained 1.3 million (!) Instagram followers and Jones adds that it’s “highly likely” that she’ll be seen as more valuable to brands because of it.
Stacy Jones told Instyle magazine:
“Many brands should want to capitalize on the fervor of her following, which is highly-engaged in each and every post she has done.
“She has broadened her awareness as she’s made the news around the world and is now becoming a household name. Someone is going to want to capitalize on that.”
Though she’s keeping her distance from the family (we’re assuming there’ll be no more selfies with Stormi, for the time being), she still has the eyeballs of the Kardashian fan base — and that’s worth a lot.
“While there are certainly Kardashian/Jenner fans that might be able to rival the intensity of Beyoncé’s Bey-hive fans, most don’t really care that much,” she says of the loyalty of KarJenner stans.
“Fast fashion brands, hair gummy supplements, diet pills and the like are all still perfect brand fits for her brand line.”
Jones adds that now is an “excellent time” for Woods to begin seeking out new opportunities while declining to speak further on the subject.
“For now, she should stop responding to the questions, she’s played her hand, and should focus on the business of the brand she has developed and which she wants to keep alive.”
Ironically enough, when asked if there were any other Hollywood star who scandal became the platform on which they launched their career, one familiar woman came to mind: Kim Kardashian. Stacy continued:
“She skyrocketed after that big reveal, and certainly has triumphed. So you never know what could happen for Jordyn’s future.”
