After some investigation, it’s been learned that “there now appear to be discrepancies in Jackie’s account. The fraternity has issued a formal statement denying the assault and asserting that there was no ‘date function or formal event’ on the night in question.”

Random House, publisher of Not That Kind of Girl, will be issuing an edited and corrected edition of Dunham’s book.
