Is Kylie Jenner really a ‘self-made’ billionaire as Forbes deemed her?

Is Kylie Jenner really a ‘self-made’ billionaire as Forbes deemed her?

She shared the Forbes magazine cover for Kylie Jenner with the caption: "She was always trolled for getting her lips done, bullied all the time". Kylie Jenner is well on her way to becoming the "youngest self-made United States billionaire".

According to Forbes, the businesswoman has in less than three years amassed a fortune of 900 million United States dollars (£680 million).

"Calling Kylie Jenner a "self-made billionaire' is like claiming you made soup from scratch because you opened a can and reheated it", while another posted on Twitter: "For f*** sake, if you start the 40-yard dash on the 39-yard line, you are NOT self-made". Netizens are pointing out the fact that Jenner shouldn't be called "self-made" as she was born into an already rich family.

"Another year of growth will make her the youngest self-made billionaire ever, male or female, trumping Mark Zuckerberg, who became a billionaire at age 23", Forbes reported.




In another tweet, she stated that if there should be someone celebrated for being "self-made", it should be Jenner's mother, Kris. "Self-made means having succeeded in life unaided", its post stated yesterday, July 11.

Dictionary.com also pointed out that the searches for "self-made" were up by 18,628 per cent on their website. But little do most people know that shooting up to Forbes' list of America's 60 self-made richest women are two women of Indian-origin.

Jenner's net worth has skyrocketed thanks to the success of Kylie Cosmetics. Technology executives Jayshree Ullal and Neerja Sethi have been ranked 18th and 21st with net worth of $1.3 billion and $1 billion respectively.

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