Must be nice to be famous simply because your sister made a sex tape and your dad transitioned to a female.
Forbes has named Kylie Jenner the youngest “self made billionaire” ever. At twenty-one, Jenner has a net worth of $1 billion dollars and her make-up line Kylie Cosmetics, is worth at least $900 million alone.
Jenner told Forbes, “I didn’t expect anything. I did not foresee the future,” says Jenner, who is the youngest billionaire in the world. “But [the recognition] feels really good. That’s a nice pat on the back.”
She credits social media for her rise, saying “It’s the power of social media. I had such a strong reach before I was able to start anything.”
Forbes may think Jenner is self made, but on social media, they’re getting a lot of flack for that statement.
Kylie Jenner isn’t a 'self-made' billionaire, she’s a SELFIE-made billionaire profiting off the back of her big sister’s sex tape. What a tragic reflection on our shallow social media society!https://t.co/ch0CEhNq2k pic.twitter.com/6ICY5mTpPM

Classing Kylie Jenner as a "self made" billionaire is hilarious. Can't imagine the struggle she's had to go though to get where she is today with a couple million in her pocket to get her started & a multi million dollar family behind her. She's a real grafter.
