Addressing internet rumors, model and reality-TV star Kendall Jenner says she is not gay — but she isn’t ruling it out.
“I don’t think I have a bisexual or gay bone in my body, but I don’t know,” Jenner, 22, of E!’s “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” says in the new issue of Vogue. “Who knows? I’m all down for experience — not against it whatsoever — but I’ve never been there before.”
Jenner believes she has “kind of a . . . male energy? But I don’t want to say that wrong, because I’m not transgender or anything,” like her father, former Olympian Caitlyn (nee Bruce) Jenner. “I’m not gay,” she says. “I have literally nothing to hide. . . . I would never hide something like that.”
The speculation might have begun, she says, “because I’m not like all my other sisters, who are like, ‘Here’s me and my boyfriend!’ So it was a thing for a minute because no one ever saw me with a guy. I would always go that extra mile to be low-key with guys, sneaking around all the time.”
That attitude continues with what Vogue identifies as her current boyfriend, Detroit Pistons’ forward Blake Griffin, 28. The article’s writer says in the piece Jenner phoned him from Michigan on Feb. 15 while “visiting a friend.” Asked if she had a boyfriend, Jenner responded, “I like my private life,” adding, after a pause, “Yeah . . . no. I’m happy. He’s very nice. I have someone being very nice to me.”
