Kylie Jenner Just Admitted She’s Not A “Self-Made Billionaire”

Though she began her career as a little girl on the reality series, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kylie Jenner has created a brand and name for herself outside of the family business. In 2015 –Jenner founded Kylie Cosmetics and the response to the brand has been astounding.

Typically, when Jenner puts out a new Lip Kit which includes a liquid lipstick and matching lip liner–retailing for $29, they are sold out within the first 10 minutes. In fact, in 2018 Forbes shook the world and caused quite a bit of controversy when they declared Jenner was on her way to being the world’s youngest self-made billionaire. Since the news broke –there has been a ton of push back about Jenner’s “self-made” status. Now, Jenner is admitting she didn’t exactly achieve her fortune on her own.

This is what Kylie Jenner said about being a self-made billionaire

When Forbes published their feature on Jenner, even got involved tweeting, “Haven’t we gone over this? Self-made: Having succeeded in life unaided.” No one is questioning Jenner’s achievements –but to call Stormi’s mom self-made is incredulous. Now– the 21-year-old mogul is addressing her critics.

During a recent interview with the New York Times, Jenner said, “I can’t say I’ve done it by myself. If they’re just talking finances, technically, yes, I don’t have any inherited money. But I have had a lot of help and a huge platform.” We’re just glad the makeup mogul realizes she did have a head start when it came to growing and marketing her business. Privilege certainly comes into play here, but that doesn’t mean Jenner hasn’t worked hard for her success.

How does Kylie Jenner make her money?

In addition to Kylie Cosmetics, which is projected to be worth $1 billion by 2022 –Jenner also earns a massive paycheck from Keeping Up With the Kardashians where she also acts as a producer and from various product endorsements. In the past, Jenner has also had a T-shirt line with her big sis, Kendall Jenner for their brand Kendall + Kylie, as well as her 2017 mini-series, Life of Kylie.
