Kylie Jenner’s net worth:
Although Forbes had wrongfully declared Kylie Jenner the youngest ‘self-made’ billionaire, but there had been controversy about her being self-made as well as her net worth. In March 2019, Kylie Jenner appeared on the Forbes Billionaires list after claims that Kylie Jenner sold 51% of Kylie Cosmetics to Coty, Inc. in January 2019. It was later revealed through official documents that the Kylie Cosmetics deal with Coty, Inc. was much smaller than what had been claimed.
After the Forbes Billionaires list controversy, Kylie Jenner now stands worth $900 million, still making her the youngest richest person in 2020. As far as the net worth of Kylie Jenner compared to other Kardashian sisters is concerned, she stands 2nd to her older sister Kim Kardashian, also having a net worth of $900 million just above Kylie Jenner.
The claims of Kylie being self-made had also been a point of controversy. Kylie Jenner’s status as “self-made” billionaire sparked controversy on social media. Many accused Kylie Jenner of benefitting from her family’s wealth. Responding to the criticism, Kylie Jenner said, “If they’re just talking about finances, technically, yes, I don’t have any inherited money.” But the question still remains the same; would any other teenager not born as wealthy and as privileged as Kylie have gotten the same success from such a venture.
Kylie Jenner regarded social media as the main force behind the overnight success of her cosmetic brand. She said, “It’s the power of social media. I had such a strong reach before I was able to start anything.”
