Kylie Jenner Has Been Named Forbes Youngest Self-Made Billionaire For The Second Time

She received a lot of backlash for the title last year

There is absolutely no denying the success that Kylie Jenner has seen in her short 22 years of life. And it seems that Forbes magazine agrees, having released their annual list of the world’s billionaires, it was little old Kylie who topped their list, again.

Last year Kylie won the title for youngest self-made billionaire, knocking Mark Zuckerberg, who was 23 before he made his first million. Unlucky Mark, work harder next time maybe, yeah?

Kylie was just 21 when she coveted the title last year, and now, at 22 she’s even richer than she was 12 months ago (love how that works for rich people). 2019 saw the youngest Kar-Jenner sis sell off 51% of her cosmetics brand for around $600m (roughly €550m), which leaves her business is now valued at $1.2 billion.

But, after coming from not a not-so-humble background, both Kylie and Forbes received a lot of backlash for their decision last year, with many pointing out that Kylie doesn’t exactly come across as ‘self-made’.

In response, Forbes said:

“Yes, self-made (despite a lot of help from her famous family, she didn’t inherit her business—she built it). And yes, billionaire (she’s worth $1 billion).”

This is now Kylie’s second year running with the title, placing her among just 2,095 people who are worth 1billion or more.

But, if anyone would like to diss Kylie for having no talent, we would like to point them to her most recent Tik Tok video, where she recreates that iconic ‘ABCDEFG Goodbye’ moment with her mam Kris, the talent leaps out.
