“At 21, Kylie Jenner Becomes The Youngest Self-Made Billionaire Ever,” the digital cover of Forbes proclaimed today, noting that even Mark Zuckerberg needed two more years to make the list back in 2008 at 23.
In a portrait accompanying the story, Jenner could not have looked more different than young Zuck did for his debut Forbes profile. Clad in a crocodile-printed suit, pale pink turtleneck, and nude stilettos, with signature pink acrylic nails in frame, Jenner is decidedly not the hoodie-wearing tech wunderkid of the mid-aughts.
Instead, Jenner fully owns Kylie Cosmetics, a three-year-old company worth $ 900 million by Forbes’ estimate. Her fortune is around $ 1 billion. In 2018, a distribution deal with beauty retail giant Ulta helped to increase Kylie Cosmetics revenue by 9 percent. (Kylie Cosmetics did not respond to The Daily Beast’s request for comment.)
In its annual list, “Forbes” names Kylie Jenner the youngest self-made billionaire in the world, but many people have issues with the “self-made” title. Here, see people’s reactions on Twitter, some of which back the 21-year-old, while others denounce the idea that she made the fortune all on her own. Allure

The Ultimo founder has previously gushed about her relationship with the rich 53-year-old businessman who owns more than 50 companies, a private jet along, six homes, 15 cars and a 183ft yacht.
She told Hello! magazine: “My mum told me, ‘You won’t find love if you’re looking for it’, and honestly, it was the last thing I was looking for.
Tycoon Michelle met Doug two years ago at a business dinner and has previously gushed about their fairytale relationship[/caption]
“But as you get older, you realise what you want from a relationship and I couldn’t deny there was a true connection. I feel like I’m in a fairytale, a beautiful dream I don’t ever want to wake up from.”
The “bra queen” who is now known as Baroness Mone of Mayfair has already moved in with her beau into a huge mansion on the Isle of Man.
It boasts an enormous home gym, swimming pool and spa.

OHMYGOSSIP — Ciara wants to be a billionaire.
The 32-year-old singer – who has son Future, four, with ex-husband Future, and 16-month-old Sienna with spouse Russell Wilson – has always set herself big goals and doesn’t believe there are any barriers in her way to success.
She said: “The first goal I wrote down was to get discovered. The second was to sell three to four million records. Third, have longevity.
“No dream is too big. I want to be a billionaire. I never thought, I can’t be because of the colour of my skin, I can’t be because of my gender. The more resources, the more you can do.”
But even if she does become a billionaire, the ‘Goodies’ singer admitted nothing will be a greater accomplishment than being a wife and mother.
She told America’s Cosmopolitan magazine: “I think my greatest accomplishment 10 years from now is that I would have a successful life as it pertains to my marriage and being a mom.
“It’s cool to want to do all these creative things, but it’s no good to gain the world if you lose your soul.”
Ciara tries to ignore her critics and simply focuses on achieving her goals.
She said: “When someone comes for you and you didn’t send for them, you keep your eye on the prize. I know what my mission is. I know what I’m hoping for and working hard for every day. And that’s my focus.
“I’m not going to let people steal my joy. I move on. New day, new opportunity, new energy, let’s go.”
After giving birth to her daughter last year, the ‘Level Up’ singer vowed to make time for herself so now fits in three workouts a day to feel good and look “sexy”.
She said: “It was kind of like, wake up in the morning, breastfeed, eat a small meal, go train, come back in, breastfeed, eat another meal, go train, then come back, have another meal, and then a third training session at night.
“It was a good challenge, one I set for myself, not for anyone else. Taking care of myself makes me feel really good. And I want to keep it sexy too, you know.”
