Kylie Jenner has definitely reached an amazing level of financial success at a young age. But there was some controversy over whether she could be considered self-made or not. She is now claiming she has been financially cut off from her parents for years, but is that true? Here is everything you need to know.

Forbes previously described Kylie Jenner as self-made, which led to backlash

Forbes did a profile on Kylie Jenner about her business Kylie Cosmetics.
Kylie Cosmetics was valued to be worth $800 million
and she owns all of it. It described her as the youngest-ever self-made billionaire at 21 years old.

This led to a lot of backlash given Kylie Jenner notably comes from a rich family and had a platform on reality television for a good portion of her life. Still, she was ranked number four on the list of America’s Richest Self-Made Women and the youngest on it.

Time has passed and it sounds like Kylie Jenner still believes she is self-made. She revealed why that is.

The beauty entrepreneur claims that she didn’t actually get that much help from her parents to start her business. She revealed what her parents told her at a young age.

“My parents told me I needed to make my own money, it’s time to learn how to save and spend your own money, stuff like that,” she told Paper Magazine. She then said they “cut her off at the age of 15.”

The reality star went on to talk about the Forbes title. “The self-made thing is true,” said Kylie Jenner and that she “spent every last dime that I had starting it [Kylie Cosmetics], not even knowing if it would be successful.”

This isn’t the first time Kylie Jenner has claimed this. She also talked about this years ago with British InStyle. “My mom cut me off financially three years ago,” she said. “So I pay for everything—my car, my gas and food as well as my clothes.” But is that actually true?

But she reportedly did get help from her parents in other ways

A source told E! News that the young reality star had her basic needs like food and laundry paid for by her parents like other teenagers. But she was cut off from more luxury items.

Kris has taught all the girls that if they want something, they have to work for it. Kris made sure she paid for Kylie’s car, for medical, for housing, for food, for vacations. All the usual stuff,” a source said. “If she wanted to buy new clothes, she would have to save up. If they wanted extras they had to buy extras.”

So is Kylie Jenner self-made? She definitely comes from a rich and famous family which led to her having a lot more business opportunities. She claims that she has been cut off financially from a young age but she reportedly still had her basic needs covered for her by her parents.
