Kylie Jenner to become youngest self-made billionaire

Kylie Jenner to become youngest self-made billionaire

While it is true her cosmetics company, Kylie Cosmetics, is worth multimillions, netizens do not agree that the term "self-made" applies to Jenner.

Toke Makinwa is out with a new episode of her "Toke Moments" vlog and in this episode, she's talking about the Kylie Jenner Forbes magazine cover that was released this week.

The magazine estimated that Jenner's cosmetics company, reality TV gig and endorsements have helped the 20-year-old (she turns 21 in August) rake in a $900 million fortune. His few choice words congratulating the youngest of the Kardashian/Jenner crew sparked RHOA star, Nene Leakes to comment her own opinion. So Kylie Jenner made Forbes and there's been so much talk about it, from if she's really "self- made" to doubts and much more.

After all, she grew up in one of America's richest and most-followed celebrity families.


The story also reports Jenner, who became a mom in February, has also earned several million from her share of E!'s "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" and endorsement deals with Puma and PacSun. Self-made. Even Dictionary.com roasted the magazine for the title, Tweeting yesterday "Self-made means having succeeded in life unaided. Used in a sentence: Forbes says that Kylie Jenner is a self-made woman".

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

"What her half-sister Kim Kardashian West did for booty, Jenner has done for full lips", Natalie Robehmed wrote for Forbes.
