Kylie Jenner Slams Reports That Bruce Jenner Is Not Her Biological Father
Kylie Jenner doesn't need a paternity test to know that Bruce Jenner is her biological father. In a series of Twitter posts Feb. 1, the teenage Keeping Up With the Kardashians star slammed a recent tabloid article claiming the celebrated Olympian is not her real dad.
"It sickens me how editors of a magazine can proudly write a story denying that a 15-year-old's father is actually hers," Kylie wrote. "Yes, my father is my father, and no my parents aren't getting a divorce. . . It's all bullsh-t."
Kylie continued, "And even though I don't let these stories get to my head, imagine [yourself] at 15 and someone telling you your father isn't your father." Adding that "people disgust me," the aspiring model then questioned the legality of writing about her family's genealogy.
"You're actually pathetic, going after a 15-year-old and telling her her father isn't her father," she tweeted. "Like, what? Are you insane? This makes me so mad. . . To whoever took the time to type those words onto that magazine, do you have a heart? I'm gonna find out if this is legal. Like it shouldn't be legal to publish harmful false information about a minor. . . I'm not taking the time to write all this because it hurts me. I'm writing this for the other teens my age."
When Kylie received some backlash from Twitter users, she addressed them head-on. "We all get cyber bullied unfortunately, some more than others. I see at least 20 mean things said about me a day and continue to be happy," she wrote. "If you guys only read the things I've read about myself everyday. . . Just trying to show you guys that you aren't alone and to ignore it, because there is so much more to life."
Half-sibling Kourtney Kardashian commended Kylie via Twitter. "That was some rant," she wrote. "But I just want to say that I am proud and honored to have you as my sister. What a well spoken young lady!" Pregnant Kim Kardashian retweeted Kourtney, adding, "I couldn't agree more! So proud."
Unfortunately, Kylie isn't the only one in her family who's been subjected to relentless rumors about her lineage -- her half-sister, Khloe Kardashiam-Odom, recently spoke out against recurring reports that she is the love child of Kris Jenner and Todd Waterman. (Her biological father, attorney Robert Kardashian, died in 2003 at age 59.)
"It is disgusting that Life & Style and InTouch magazines continue to print these false stories about my life: the status of my marriage, false reports about a miscarriage, the horrible lie that my dad is not my biological father, jealousy over my sisters' lives, etc. It is a complete waste of time to address these reports every time they print these ridiculous and absurd tabloid stories, but not only are these stories untrue, they're also unfair to the people who buy the magazines expecting to read accurate reports," the 28-year-old X Factor co-host blogged Jan. 16.
"Anyone who pays attention to these things can easily see the incredible bond that everyone in my family shares. I'm happily married to a wonderful man and fall in love with him more and more each day, and we'll have a baby when god wants us to and when the time is right," Kardashian-Odom added. "These blatant lies are distasteful and shameless."
