Kendall Jenner denies gay rumors, addresses romance with Blake Griffin
By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 03/14/2018
Kendall Jenner is many things -- including a tomboy with a self-described "male energy" about her -- but the supermodel and reality TV star says she is not gay despite recent rumors.
Prior to getting involved in a romance with 28-year-old Detroit Pistons player, Blake Griffin, Kendall was subjected to rumors about her sexuality, and the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star doesn't understand how they came about.
"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," Kendall reasoned with Vogue in its April 2018 issue, for which she graces the cover.
"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."
Kendall said she collects vintage cars and would trade a pair of high heels for jeans and a hoodie any day, but she insisted to the magazine, "I don't think I have a bisexual or gay bone in my body."
The Estee Lauder and Calvin Klein model -- who typically hangs in a pack of guys -- continued, "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?"
Kendall was quick to defend her word choice as to not offend anyone.
"I don't want to say that wrong, because I'm not transgender or anything," said Kendall, who was linked to A$AP Rocky before dating Blake.
"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."
The 22-year-old brunette beauty refused to open up about her relationship with Blake; however, she pretty much confirmed he's in the picture.
Kendall told Vogue that she was "visiting a friend" in Michigan the day after Valentine's Day 2018. When asked directly if she was spending time with Blake, Kendall replied, "I like my private life... I'm happy. He's very nice. I have someone being very nice to me."
Kendall and the professional athlete reportedly began hooking up in September 2017.
One month later, a source close to Kendall told Us Weekly that she had made her relationship with Blake official and they had become a "full-on couple."
Ever since then, the pair have been spotted out in public together numerous times, and Kendall has been photographed sitting courtside at his basketball games and cheering him on.
