Kylie Jenner makes Forbes list of 'self-made' billionaires

Kylie Jenner makes Forbes list of 'self-made' billionaires

As the website disputes a claim in the most recent issue Forbes, that predicts Jenner in on track to become the "youngest self-made billionaire ever, male or female".

Travis Scott was not shy at all to express his love for Kylie Jenner.

"Social media is an awesome platform", Jenner told Forbes.

Jezebel's Megan Reynolds echoed the sentiment, writing, "She does owe much of her "self-made" wealth to her mother, Kris Jenner, whose evil genius for marketing her children and creating a capitalist empire around their image deserves far more shine here".

Momager Kris and her siblings all took to social media to congratulate the 20-year-old.

In the story accompanying the cover, Forbes said they estimate that Kylie Cosmetics has raked in $630 million since it launched in 2015.

We're throwing major side-eye at the enormous reach that would constitute the cosmetics guru as self-made, but her rise to the top of the food chain is still pretty impressive.

The mum of one claims that her online platform is the key to her successful business, telling the magazine: "Social media is an incredible platform".

While makeup and more specifically lip kits were a natural fit for Jenner ― she recently made headlines for ditching her signature lip fillers ― she says she "struggled for a minute" to identify her passion in a family where each member is successful in their own way.

The bulk of her income is derived from Kylie Cosmetics, best known for its lip kits.

She also hopes Stormi might inherit the family business, theorizing, "Maybe one day [I'll] pass this on to Stormi, if she's into it".

Kylie also posted the Forbes cover photo on Instagram and wrote, "wow. i can't believe I'm posting my very own @forbes cover. thank you for this article and the recognition". While the title is certainly exciting, Jenner's dreams for her business are all about one thing - Stormi.

Oddly enough, she has since made a decision to forego her regular lip injections and she's starting to look more like her old-self just as her business is about to burst into the billions bracket.
