Is Travis Scott Jealous of Kylie Jenner’s Success Amid $600M Cosmetics Sale?
Is anyone else surprised at just how wealthy Kylie Jenner has become? The youngest member of the Kardashian/Jenner clan has surpassed her older siblings in success and is showing no signs of slowing down.
Since founding Kylie Cosmetics in 2015, the company has made Jenner a billionaire. Are those around her proud of her success or is the green-eyed monster wreaking havoc in Jenner’s life?
Kylie sells her cosmetics line
Jenner started making her lip kits to overcome an insecurity.
“It’s the most authentic thing I’ve done in my career, and it really relates to me, and I feel like people can tell that I’m super passionate about it,” she said in an interview with the Evening Standard of her kits. “It came from an insecurity and I turned it into something. I was insecure about my lips, and lipstick is what helped me feel confident.”
When Jenner started out in the makeup industry, she probably had no idea just how big her cosmetics line would be. She started the brand with $250,000 that she earned from modeling jobs and hired a company to help her make her lip kits. Now, after just four years in the game, Jenner was able to sell 51% of her company to major beauty manufacturer Coty. But the shares of the company didn’t come without a huge price tag. Her partnership with Coty, who owns Covergirl, Rimmel, OPI, and more, cost them a whopping $600 million.
According to a release obtained by People, Jenner is “excited to partner with Coty to continue to reach even more fans of Kylie Cosmetics and Kylie Skin around the world.”
“I look forward to continuing the creativity and ingenuity for each collection that consumers have come to expect and engaging with my fans across social media,” Jenner said in the release.
Kardashians supporting their sister
Jenner may be more successful than them, but the rest of the Kardashians aren’t letting jealousy get in the way of them supporting their baby sister.
“Kylie’s sisters couldn’t be more proud of her,” a source told HollywoodLife. “As much as they’re blown away by her success, they’re also not surprised whatsoever because they know Kylie is super intelligent, an amazing businesswoman, and is very mature for her age. They fully support this new chapter in her career and look forward to seeing where she goes next. But one thing they know for sure, she’ll crush it no matter what path she chooses.”
How does Travis Scott feel about Kylie Jenner’s success?
Jenner and Travis Scott have called it quits for now, but the rapper is still proud of the mother of his child.
“Travis and Kylie are still very close, they still talk all the time, often several times a day. He knew all about this deal before she signed it, he’s very, very proud of her,” a source told the outlet. “He loves that she’s such a boss, especially because Stormi has such a great example of what hard work looks like. Regardless of their status as a couple Travis will always love and support Kylie, he’ll forever have her back and want the best for her.”
