UPDATE: Kendall Jenner tweeted: “Shame on US Weekly for making up quotes. I NEVER said those things. I never spoke to them.” We have reached out to Us Weekly for a comment. Stay tuned for updates.
After months filled with rumors and Photoshop-fueled tabloid “journalism,” the Jenners are finally opening up about Bruce’s transition. Backstage at the Justin Bieber Comedy Central roast, US Weekly spoke to Kendall Jenner, who—for the first time—publicly spoke about her father’s gender identity. “I love my dad. He’s always been there for me and my sisters,” she said. “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.”
Recently, when asked about the transition rumors by Love magazine, Kris said, “I’m not even answering that. It’s just dumb.” Kendall’s words are a stark contrast to what Kris said, and hopefully a sign that the family is supporting Bruce’s journey. However, this brief statement from Kendall still leaves a question in our minds about what pronouns Bruce is using—and the fact that she asserts that “he’s a wonderful man” while also saying saying she’ll love him “whether he’s a man or a woman” seems a little contradictory. But, of course, this whole experience is new to Kendall, and what counts is her attitude—which is refreshingly thoughtful and positive.
