Kylie Jenner Officially Lands The Title Of Youngest Self-Made Billionaire!
Kylie Jenner has finally hit billionaire status at the age of 21, making her the youngest “self-made” one to do so… at least according to Forbes!
The glossy tapped into the KUWTK starlet’s brain to recognize her milestone achievement for an article published Tuesday, and Kris Jenner‘s daughter is feeling good about her new title.
Speaking about her massive net worth, she described:
“I didn’t expect anything. I did not foresee the future. But [the recognition] feels really good. That’s a nice pat on the back.”
A pat on the back we’re sure other entrepreneurs would do anything for!
While Stormi Webster‘s momma downplays the key to her success, Forbes credits Jenner’s push from millionaire to billionaire status to her partnership with Ulta. Selling Kylie Cosmetics in physical stores launched her revenue over the edge — but as Kylie says:
“I popped up at a few stores, I did my usual social media—I did what I usually do, and it just worked.”
Of course, the youngest of the KarJenner girls understands her social media presence played a huge part in her company’s growth, even before she even founded Kylie Cosmetics in 2015:
“It’s the power of social media. I had such a strong reach before I was able to start anything.”
And it’s worth noting, her big sis Kim Kardashian West‘s net worth only comes in at $350 million.
Those are still some big numbers, but it hasn’t landed the momma of three on the same list, that’s for sure!
You may remember, the 38-year-old business mogul actually defended her sibling’s “self-made” title after Forbes announced in this past August’s issue that Kylie was set to become the youngest ever.
Kimmie opened up at the time:
“I really didn’t get it, because she is ‘self-made’ — we are all ‘self-made’. What, because we came from a family that has had success? To me, that doesn’t really make sense… I know so many people like that [who] haven’t turned out to be as successful as Kylie. If anything, I’ve seen the complete opposite.”
The lack of recognizing their privilege sparked backlash back then, so we can only imagine how people will feel now that the young makeup mogul can add “youngest-ever self-made billionaire” to her resume.
Especially since the momma of one’s personal life is being rocked by an alleged cheating scandal after reportedly accusing her baby daddy Travis Scott of straying…
While neither star has directly addressed the rumors, it’s still comes as a shocker since Khloe Kardashian faced her own drama surrounding Tristan Thompson and Jordyn Woods last month!
Although, we doubt King Kylie will be losing any sleep over the controversy tonight with the release of this article.
