Us Weekly on Thursday retracted and removed a story it published on its website Wednesday, which had quoted Kendall Jenner purportedly discussing her father Bruce Jenner's transitioning to womanhood. "The interview was allegedly conducted by an independent freelance journalist at the . . . taping of Comedy Central's roast of Justin Bieber in Los Angeles," the magazine said in a statement to Newsday. "When Ms. Jenner denied, via Twitter, that the interview took place, Us Weekly immediately reached out to the freelance reporter. . . . [A]fter attempting to reconfirm his account, editors of Us have concerns about the veracity of this interview and the circumstances under which it was obtained. . . . We sincerely apologize to Ms. Jenner and her family." Bruce Jenner has not publicly addressed speculative reports that he is undergoing gender transition.
