People Are Donating Money To Kylie Jenner So She Becomes Youngest Billionaire
A few days ago, Forbes magazine broke the news to us that Kylie Jenner could potentially be the 'youngest ever self-made billionaire', revealing that she's raked in a whopping $900 million (£679m) from her cosmetic company.
That's right, she just needs a cool $100m to reach billionaire status - and some people are so eager for her to reach it, that they're donating money to her in a crowdfunding campaign.
I honestly wish I was making this shit up.
The GoFundMe campaign, which was set up by Instagram star Josh Ostrovsky, who goes by the nickname 'The Fat Jew'. Obviously it all sounds like it's just a bit of a piss-take ("I don't want to live in a world where Kylie Jenner doesn't have a billion dollars. WE MUST RAISE 100 MILLION DOLLARS TO HELP HER GET TO A BILLION, PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD, THIS IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT"), but people have actually been donating money.

While most of the donations are only about $5 (£3.80), one anonymous person has gone for $1,000 (£750).
But so far the campaign has only just tipped over the $2,000 (£1,500) mark, meaning it looks pretty unlikely that she'll be getting her mega-money anytime soon.
Plus if you think about it, if the general public give her a $100m handout, she'll no longer be able to claim that she's self-made - although that's something that people are already questioning, with one person tweeting: "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."
thank you @Forbes for this article and the recognition. I'm so blessed to do what i love everyday. #KylieCosmetics pic.twitter.com/CRBwlBByk9

The cover was first shared on the Forbes Instagram account with the 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?
Kylie's sister Kim also shared the cover - twice - writing: "Wait I'm posting this again just because!!!! BILLION DOLLAR BABY". She then added loads of flame emojis, some wave emojis, explosion emojis and that weird emoji with the dollar signs for eyes and a green tongue.
