Kendall Jenner might be part of America's most public family, but her private life tends to fly under the radar for the most part, which is just the way the model and part-time reality star likes it. One rumor that has persisted is that some of the closest women friends in her life are actually romantic partners. In a new profile for Vogue, Jenner sets the record straight about her sexuality without revealing too much — but also doesn't close the door on the possibility.

"I don’t think I have a bisexual or gay bone in my body, but I don’t know! Who knows?! I’m all down for experience—not against it whatsoever—but I’ve never been there before," she said. "To answer your question: I’m not gay. I have literally nothing to hide. I would never hide something like that."

While there are claims of evidence that her best friend Lauren Perez is actually her girlfriend — and that her falling out with model and actress Cara Delevingne was actually a full-fledged breakup — Jenner says the rumors stick because she's private about her love life in comparison to her siblings.

"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. 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."

In fact, she wouldn't confirm whether or not she's dating the Detroit Pistons' Blake Griffin, despite evidence in the profile that she was in Michigan the day after Valentine's Day. "I like my private life," she explained, while finally offering up that she is seeing someone, with no confirmation if that someone is Griffin. "Yeah...I’m happy. He’s very nice. I have someone being very nice to me."
