Jordyn Woods Explains Saying Boyfriend Karl-Anthony Towns Was ‘Like A Brother’ Before They Dated: That Sounds Disgusting Now, I Know
The couple appeared on her Instagram series Regular-ish Friday (Sept. 3) to share how they started dating.
Jordyn Woods explained,
“Two years before, I’m like, ‘No, that’s like a brother to me.'”
“That sounds disgusting now, I know.”
Karl-Anthony Towns agreed, adding:
“That sounds crazy.”
Still, he said they were close friends for years before they decided to make things romantic.
“Me and Jordyn met years ago knowing common people and just became friends. And ever since then, our relationship grew where we became more than friends. I’m not saying in that way, but just best friends. And then we started having a deeper relationship.”
“Literally there was never a kiss or anything…was just best friends. We had such mutual respect for each other.”
Jordyn Woods said,
“I think it’s kind of cool dating your best friend. We know each other. We know each other’s hearts. We know each other on good days and bad days and we’ve been through a lot of bad days together.”
Jordyn Woods and Karl-Anthony Towns went public with their relationship in September 2020 but began dating the May before. Woods supported the NBA player as he lost a total of seven family members, including his mother Jacqueline Towns, to the coronavirus.
“It just so happened, COVID came and kind of brought its challenges, and it kind of forced us to either pick where our relationship was going to go as friends or something more. And we chose the latter.”
“Timing is everything. I felt like God was presenting us something that we just went with. And it happened to be something beautiful.”
