Jodie has elevated her profile through regular updates on Instagram, sharing glimpses into her life. Notably, she captures attention with posts on lifestyle and fashion, appealing to a broad audience, especially among her peers, who admire her stylish and inspirational lifestyle.
Curious to learn more about Jodie? Let’s delve into her story.
Early Personal Life
Jodie Woods was born to John 11 and Elizabeth on 6 January 2005, in California, USA. She has two brothers, John III and Joshua, and an elder sister, Jordyn.
The family underwent separation during her early years, and tragically, her father passed away from cancer on 18 January 2017, profoundly impacting Jodie, but in a bittersweet turn of events, the family managed to reconcile just before his death.
Unfortunately, there is no reliable information available about Jodie’s schooling journey.
Jodie has been a presence on social media for several years. In the early days, her posts featured a series of throwback images capturing moments with her sister and their father, although these posts have been removed since then.
The inception of Jodie’s social media journey coincided with the attention garnered by her elder sister, Jordyn, who is a model, reality TV star, and social media influencer, who rose to fame through her appearances on the reality series ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians,’ subsequently amassing a substantial following of over 12 million on Instagram.

As Jordyn’s influence and presence expanded across social media, she caught the attention of the renowned modelling and talent agency, ‘Wilhelmina International’. Entering into an agreement with the agency, Jordyn began her journey with ‘Wilhelmina International’s Curve‘, their division dedicated to plus-size models.
Rapidly ascending in the modelling world, she achieved significant prominence as one of the most sought-after plus-size models in the United States. Jordyn has graced the pages of renowned publications such as Mane Addicts and Vogue, showcasing her versatility and impact in the industry.
Naturally, Jordyn’s fans were intrigued by her family, leading them to discover Jodie through her sister’s Instagram posts.
As Jodie increased her activity on Instagram, her mother assumed the role of manager of her account. She is currently affiliated with ‘PR Woods Management Group,’ an organization led by her mother.
This transition marked a significant step in Jodie’s social media presence, aligning her with a management group while maintaining the familial connection. Jodie’s foray into social media was initially closely overseen by her mother, a prudent measure considering her young age.
Under her mother’s guidance, Jodie successfully transitioned into a social media influencer in her own right. Remarkably, within just a year of her inaugural Instagram post, she’d amassed a following exceeding 400,000 followers—an impressive feat, especially considering the absence of distinctive elements on her Instagram page, which primarily comprises updates on her daily life and fashion choices. A predominant theme in her posts is the sharing of selfies showcasing her latest hairstyles or clothing styles. The relatable and down-to-earth nature of her Instagram content has evidently resonated with netizens.

In contrast to the ostentatious and exaggerated “flexing” posts prevalent on other platforms, Jodie’s Instagram page stands out as a breath of fresh air for individuals of her age group. The genuine and unassuming tone of her content, coupled with the fact that her sister Jordyn consistently captures media attention, contributes to the growing interest in Jodie. This association has been instrumental in her continual expansion of followers.
These days, her posts are a bit more glamorous, but they reflect the success Jodie has experienced in life, and she clearly doesn’t want to hide the nice things she has just to fake humility.
In February 2019, Jodie found herself in the spotlight, albeit for less favourable reasons, due to circumstances involving her sister. Reports surfaced about an alleged infidelity involving Khloe Kardashian‘s ex-, Tristan Thompson, and Jodie’s sister leading to the end of Kylie Jenner and Jordyn’s friendship.
As a consequence, Jodie faced a barrage of negative comments on her Instagram posts from online trolls and followers of Jordyn. While the majority of these comments were directed at Jordyn, the experience was undoubtedly unpleasant for Jodie, and extended to bullying incidents at school.
Despite the challenges, Jodie demonstrated unwavering support for her sister by sharing images with Jordyn. One such post in April 2019, featuring the two sisters, became the most-liked on Jodie’s Instagram page, amassing over 280,000 hearts or likes.
Undeniably, Jodie’s public profile continues to grow, and the future appears promising for the talented teenager. Describing herself as a dancer and singer in her Twitter bio suggests she is actively pursuing lessons in both disciplines.
Jodie has a passion for photography, capturing moments that resonate with her creativity.
An avid food enthusiast, she proudly identifies as a big-time foodie, enjoying diverse culinary experiences.
Devoting regular hours to the gym, Jodie prioritises her health and fitness. Her commitment to maintaining a healthy lifestyle reflects her conscientious approach to appearance, lifestyle choices, and fashion sense.
Later Personal Life
According to publicly available information, Jodie isn’t currently in a relationship. In 2019, she was linked to Quincy, P Diddy’s eldest son, when a picture of them together circulated on the internet. However, Jodie’s mother dispelled the rumours, emphasising that Quincy is like an elder brother to Jodie.
Jodie is quite short at 5ft 3ins (163cms), weighs about 110lbs (50kgs) with vital statistics of 35-27-36. She has dark brown eyes and long black hair, but she’s sometimes seen in wigs, sporting blonde hair.
Jodie earns a decent amount of money from her social media content and brand endorsements. As such, her net worth is estimated to be $2 million, as of late 2023.
