American magazine Us Weekly has issued an apology to Kendall Jenner and her family after the model hit back at them for fabricating a number of quotes.
Earlier this week, Us' website published an interview with the 19-year-old in which she spoke openly about her father Bruce Jenner's decision to undergo a sex change.
"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," the interview quoted Kendall as saying.
Hours later the reality star took to Twitter to blast the magazine, saying, "Shame on US Weekly for making up quotes. I NEVER said those things. I never spoke to them."

The article was still visible on the website for most of yesterday but a retraction and apology was finally published yesterday evening.
The freelance reporter who wrote the article apparently still alleges that the quotes were true, but as there was no proof Us admitted that they had decided to remove the story from their site.
"When Ms. Jenner denied, via Twitter, that the interview took place, Us Weekly immediately reached out to the freelance reporter. He stood by the interview, and continues to maintain that the quotes are accurate," the statement read.
"However, after attempting to reconfirm his account, editors of Us have concerns about the veracity of this interview and the circumstances under which it was obtained. We would like to retract the story entirely and have removed it from our website. We sincerely apologise to Ms. Jenner and her family."
That's that cleared up… for now anyway!
