Kylie Jenner Set To Become Youngest Ever Billionaire

Kylie Jenner, the youngest of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, was unveiled as potentially being the 'youngest ever self-made billionaire' after raking in a whopping $900million (£679m) from her cosmetic company.

The mum-of-one, who will turn 21 in August, is now the richest member of the popular family, according to the MailOnline. Kimye are going to need to up their game sharpish then.

The news has come from Forbes as Kylie appeared on their August cover which will be focused on 'America's Women Billionaires'.

The young Jenner has built up her fortune all thanks to her makeup line, Kylie Cosmetics.

Once she crosses the $1billion mark, she will unseat Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg as the 'youngest-ever self-made billionaire'.

The cover was first shared on the Forbes Instagram account with this caption: "Kylie Jenner is on track to become the youngest self-made billionaire ever, ahead of even Mark Zuckerberg, who became a billionaire at age 23."

It added: "Find out how she built a $900 million fortune in less than 3 years. #SelfMadeWomen." Like we're all going to be able to do the same or something?"

And Kylie herself followed shortly after:

But some people have found issue with the 'self-made' bit in the prestigious title which is within an arms reach away. tweeted: "Self-made means having succeeded in life unaided. Used in a sentence: Forbes says that Kylie Jenner is a self-made woman." throwing shade around like it's been created from a Kylie Cosmetics contour palette or what?


One said: "She is the very opposite of self-made???"

Another added: "Im not discrediting her success but hardly self made ..sure she works hard and earned her success. but she was given the platform and had one hell of a capital to start up."

Can anyone just be happy for a gal? Well, it's safe to say that many are and there are also a fair few asking for a cheeky borrow.

One said: "Congrats @KylieJenner! any hopes of you sharing a little bit of that $900 million & paying off my student loans?"

Another said: "We knew you can do it. You have your own name now. Not just a shadow to anyone. We love you kylie."

They clearly want an IOU.
