Kylie Jenner Is the Youngest Self-Made Billionaire Ever

Ever since news revolving around Forbes' 2019 list of self-made billionaires was made public, debates sparked as a result. Forbes which released the list on Tuesday attributes the shrinking numbers to economic forces and weak stock markets.

Jenner's sister Kendall and boyfriend Travis Scott celebrated the 21-year-old billionaire on Twitter.

The publication's list of billionaires is topped by Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, whose net worth is 131 billion USA dollars (£99.7 billion), with Microsoft's Bill Gates in second place with 96.5 billion United States dollars (£73.5 billion).

The number of self-made women reached 72 for the first time, up from 56 a year ago.

What's made her so rich? To be self-made by Forbes' standards, someone has to build a company or establish a fortune instead of inheriting some or all of it. "But the term is very broad, and does not adequately reflect how far some people have come and, relatively speaking, how much easier others have had it".

Jenner falls into the latter category. She added that the recognition "feels really good".

Detractors have wondered as the Jenner-Kardashian sibling climbed her way to a billionaire exactly what Forbes means by "self-made". The Kardashians were thrust into the spotlight after Robert died in 2003, and they eventually landed the E! reality series "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" in 2007. "Make a sex tape, make a billion - what kind of message is that?" he asked. She owns 100pc of the three-year-old beauty business, which made an estimated $360m in sales previous year.

She also credited her success to her massive social media following as she is also among the 10 most popular personality on Instagram with 126 million followers.

Ranting to his co-host Susanna Reid, he asked: 'When you say self-made billionaire, I just thought she'd got it because her sister made a sex tape and that is why they all became hugely rich. Momager Kris Jenner, 63, is especially "over the moon that her baby girl's achieved this level of success", our source says, and for more reason than the 10% management cut she gets from all her kids.
