Twitter Reacts to Kylie Jenner Becoming the Youngest Self-Made Billionaire

The 20-year-old graces the cover of the new Forbes magazine "America's Women Billionaires" issue, and with a valuation topping $900 million, Kylie is on track to be the "youngest-ever self-made billionaire" in history. Kylie Cosmetics has sold $630 million worth of make up since its inception and Kylie own 100% of Kylie Cosmetics. "Wow. I can't believe I'm posting my very own Forbes cover".

The young mother, who gave birth to her daughter Stormi back in February, graced the cover of Forbes this month wearing a sharp business suit with her raven hair slicked back. Forbes conservatively values the company at $800 million, with an estimated $330 million in sales previous year. In 2017 alone, she sold an estimated $330 million.

"Thank you @Forbes for this article and the recognition".

The ranking, which is in its fourth year, collates America's most successful self-made women entrepreneurs and executives as measured by their net worth.

Some on Twitter lashed out at the publication for recognising Jenner as a "self-made billionaire", given that she made millions from her famous family's TV show.

"I struggled for a minute with finding something to do on my own", Jenner told Forbes.

"Social media is an wonderful platform", Jenner told the outlet about her brand strategy. A Forbes profile on the socialite also pointed Jenner has only seven full-time and five part-time employees.

It's hard to conceptualize Jenner's exponential wealth, but Forbes highlights its direct connection to her social media success. Within the next year, she's set to become the youngest self-made billionaire ever, besting Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and Snapchat king Evan Spiegel. "Momager" Kris handles her business affairs, taking a 10 percent cut. The reality star, who was sacked from Teen Mom OG earlier this year, revealed that she planned to get the proper amount of filler injected back into her lips once her current filler was dissolved.

Whether the reality TV star and social media authority is "self-made" is open to interpretation, however, it's important to note Kylie did invest $250,000 of her own money from modeling gigs to produce the first line of lip kits that eventually led to her makeup empire. On Sunday, she revealed on Instagram that she had ditched them.
