(PCM) Celebrity gossip magazine, US Weekly, has issued an retraction after they published comments allegedly made by model and “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star Kendall Jenner about her father Bruce Jenner’s gender transformation.
US Weekly ran a story titled “Kendall Jenner Breaks Silence on Bruce Jenner’s Transition: ‘I Will Always Love My Dad’” on March 18 and in the story Kendall is quoted as being incredibly supportive of her father’s decision.
Kendall’s alleged quote reads “He’s a wonderful man. And just because he’s changing shoes now, so to speak, doesn’t make him less wonderful. I will always love my dad, whether he’s a man or a woman.”
After the story was published, Kendall was outraged and took to her social media account to slam US Weekly and further claim that she never even did an interview with them in the first place to make the alleged comments.
Kendall’s father Bruce Jenner has yet to publicly comment on the rumors and speculation about his supposed gender transformation, so a quote from his daughter would be assuming that all of the rumors are in fact true.
US Weekly revealed that the supposed interview took place with a freelance journalist during the taping of the Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber back on March 14. Despite Kendall’s comments about the interview never taking place, the journalist in question stands by the interviews authenticity, however US Weekly had some concern about the manner in which it was obtained. They issued an apology to both Kendall and Bruce Jenner and have since removed the article from their publication.
