Kendall Jenner has addressed rumours about her sexuality, confirming that she is straight and attributing the speculation to the fact she is “low-key with guys”.
The model, who is reportedly in a relationship with basketball player Blake Griffin, said she believes she has a “male energy”.
Asked why reports on the internet have persisted, she told US Vogue: “I think it’s 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. You don’t want to, like, look crazy.”
She added: “I don’t think I have a bisexual or gay bone in my body, but I don’t know! Who knows?!
“I’m all down for experience — not against it whatsoever — but I’ve never been there before.
“Also, I know I have kind of a male energy. But I don’t want to say that wrong, because I’m not transgender or anything. But I have a tough energy.
“I move differently. But to answer your question: I’m not gay. I have literally nothing to hide. I would never hide something like that.”
Discussing the year following the election of Donald Trump, Jenner told the magazine: “It’s very unmotivating. There are things happening that are just so horrible that it makes you not want to participate in anything.
“I’ve had days lately where I just want to sit in my bed and do nothing. It makes you scared to go out. It’s a complete nightmare. And I wish I had the power to fix it all.”
She also addressed the string of allegations of sexual harassment and assault made against high-profile men, most recently in the fashion world, saying: “Luckily, I haven’t been put into a situation like that ever in my life.
“I’ve heard about it for so long, I get it. I can try and understand it.
“But that being said, I think that it’s so powerful that, in a time that’s so shitty, for lack of a better word, it’s just really cool and empowering to see a bunch of women come together and say we’re not going to stand for this — we’re not taking it lightly; we are going full force. That’s what I find so inspiring.”
