Model Kendall Jenner confronts the rumors about her sexuality

In a recent interview with Vogue magazine model and reality star Kendall Jenner addressed internet rumors that she is gay. “I think it’s because I’m not like all my other sisters, who are like ‘Here’s me and my boyfriend!’ ” she said. “So it was a thing for a minute because no one ever saw me with a guy.” She adds that she doesn’t have “a bisexual or gay bone in (her) body,” but isn’t against the idea. “I’m all down for experience — not against it whatsoever — but I’ve never been there before.” She wouldn’t name her recent flame, Detroit Pistons power forward Blake Griffin, by name when asked if she has a boyfriend. “I like my private life,” she said, adding ambiguously “Yeah ... no. I’m happy. He’s very nice. I have someone being very nice to me.”
