Jordyn Woods turned 23 on Wednesday, Sept. 23, 2020. To celebrate the big event in style, she threw a days-long bonanza involving horse-riding, an outing to an aquarium, and a sailing adventure — all of which she chronicled via an Instagram Story. 

As to the part that caught fans' attention the most? One of the photographs sees Jordyn and pro-basketball player Karl-Anthony Towns get up close and personal. The snap led many to wonder: are they boyfriend and girlfriend?

According to a new rumor, Karl-Anthony Towns might be dating Jordyn Woods.

Karl-Anthony made several appearances in Jordyn's latest Instagram Story. In one frame, he performs an adorable dance on the front deck of a sailing boat rented for the big occasion. Jordyn also shared an Instagram Story originally appearing on her sister Jodie's account in which she and Karl-Anthony are casually posing in front of a black Lamborghini he allegedly gifted to her. "Parents," read Jodie's caption.

More importantly, however, Karl-Anthony also took it to Instagram to wish Jordyn a happy birthday, sharing a photograph that sees him casually grab her butt. Jordyn shared it to her Instagram Story — which knocked fans out. 

"I am HERE for KAT and Jordyn Woods tbh. That’s a good look for both parties," tweeted a person. 

"KAT dating Jordyn Woods is a moment most pleasing to me," wrote another fan. 

"i had no idea jordyn woods and KAT were dating. that’s so cute," remarked somebody else. 

Some insist that Jordyn and Karl-Anthony are just close friends.

The pair has been spotted out and about on various occasions. In July 2020, they had dinner at a restaurant in Malibu, Calif., which many interpreted as a sign indicating that they might be more than just close friends. According to another rumor, they may have been quarantining together. However, a source close to the couple told Hollywood Insider in August 2020 that Jordyn and Karl-Anthony are not dating.

"Jordyn and Karl are good friends, they are not dating," the insider clarified.

"Karl is friends with Jordyn's entire family and he's been going through a very tough time since April when his mom died," they said, before adding that "when Jordyn and Karl go out they are always with a group [...] she's trying to help him through a tough time as a friend, she's very caring." 

There is, of course, a chance that the insider was merely trying to cover up for the couple.

Karl-Anthony's ex-girlfriends include fitness model Kawa Andrade.

Karl-Anthony and Kawa Andrade first started talking on Instagram after the star slid into her DMs. In the spring of 2016, Karl-Anthony spent the off-season in Hawaii visiting his girlfriend. They broke it off in 2018, after Kawa became the victim of a cheating scandal. 

According to a vicious rumor, Kawa spent some time with another basketball player, Jimmy Butler, while she was in a relationship with Karl-Anthony. It's understood that the allegations were false. However, the couple broke up shortly afterward.
