Nearly 10 months after the Jordyn Woods and Tristan Thompson scandal was first divulged to the world, Jada Pinkett Smith is now releasing never before seen footage from her telling interview with Jordyn Woods on her Facebook Watch talk show, Red Table Talk.
During Monday’s special “Ask Us Anything” episode, Pinkett Smith confirmed that Woods requested to take a lie detector test during her tell-all interview in an effort to prove that she, in fact, had not slept with NBA superstar, Tristan Thompson earlier this year.
“Jordyn did take a lie detector test … it was Jordyn’s request,” Pinkett Smith revealed. “It was her request to be here, and it was her request to take the lie detector test. We had a forensic polygraphist with more than 25 years of experience in criminal and civil investigations.”
Though the footage of the test being administered was shown on the special, that aspect had not been aired on the show back in March. Pinkett Smith made it clear that the polygraph test was not meant to draw in ratings for the show.
“It wasn’t for this show — it was for [Woods] and for people that she loves,” she reassured.
Woods chose to sit down with Red Table Talk after rumors began to surface in February that Tristan Thompson had cheated on his then-girlfriend, Khloe Kardashian, with Woods. At the time, the story was extra poignant, considering that Woods had been extremely close to the Kardashian-Jenner family, as her best friend was Kylie Jenner. Woods confessed that Tristan had indeed kissed her at a party. However, that was as far as it went.
Woods sat down with certified polygraphist, Shon Thurman. When asked ”Did you have sexual intercourse with Tristan Thompson?”, Woods answered, “No.” After the test was complete, Thurman told Woods, “I thought you did a fantastic job. You definitely passed, and I believe you’re being truthful in the test.”
Pinkett Smith also corroborated the test results, “She passed with flying colors,” adding that, “No matter what’s out there, there’s always more.” As her mother continued, “Exactly, and while you pointing a finger, there’s three fingers pointing back at you.”
