Kim Kardashian West is setting the record straight.
Buzz erupted online after a Sept. 23 report on the Evening Standard's website implied that Kim was voting for Donald Trump following a chat with her Republican former step-parent Caitlyn Jenner.
"At first I thought, 'Oh my god, I'm so Hillary [Clinton],' but I had a long political call with Caitlyn last night about why she's voting Trump. I'm on the fence," Kim allegedly said in the new issue of Wonderland magazine, as teased by the Evening Standard.
Not so fast.
First, Wonderland issued a statement denying it had published those Kim comments. "Wonderland did not print or publish that," a mag spokesperson told Just Jared. "The issue is on stands and that's not in it."
Then, on Sept. 24, Kim took to her website to clarify exactly who's getting her vote in November's presidential election.
"A 'quote' of mine was released yesterday causing my phone to blow up by friends, family and even both candidates' camps, so I want to explain the context in which I said I was 'on the fence' about my vote," Kim explained.
"There was a point when I wasn't 100% sure I was even going to vote in this election; I didn't want to vote blindly. But I also thought about how not voting would mean that I wasn't making my voice heard, so I decided to talk to my closest friends and family who I love and trust, to have an open conversation about politics," she continued.
Kim confirmed she'd had a long conversation with Caitlyn. The reality star explained that Caitlyn "encouraged me to do my research before making my decision and then vote for the candidate whose policies aligned with the things that matter most to me," Kim added.
"And so that's what I did. I thought about the things that are so important to me that they outweigh everything else, such as gun control and protecting women's rights to safe and legal abortion."
Kim says her choice was clear: "I found that without a doubt, I stand with Hillary. I'm with her. I believe Hillary will best represent our country and is the most qualified for the job."
Kim also shared her gratitude for being able to have a political discussion -- and the opportunity to vote.
"God bless America for allowing us to even make these decisions," she wrote. "There are so many in this world who are not so privileged."
