Kylie Jenner to become youngest self-made billionaire

After Forbes magazine touted "America's Women Billionaires" with Kylie Jenner on its cover, the backlash was immediate over a reference to the reality TV star as being "self-made". The 20-year-old reached the milestone by starting her Kylie Cosmetics line that boomed into mega success and will now most likely be passed down to her daughter, Stormi.

The page is trending, according to GoFundMe, and has so far racked up $422 in donations over thirteen hours by 28 people.

"At 21, she's set to be the youngest-ever self-made billionaire", the Forbes cover reads.

Big sister Kim Kardashian West is estimated to be worth $US 350 million and graced the cover of Forbes in July 2016 and was touted as a mobile mogul for her successful mobile phone game "Kim Kardashian: Hollywood".

"Calling Kylie Jenner self-made without acknowledging anywhere the incredible headstart she had is what allows people to turn around and look at poor people and ask them why they haven't become billionaires yet", one critic tweeted. "Kylie really fell in love with the natural look, and wanted more of that, so she chose to stop putting filler in her lips".

Forbes reports that Kylie Cosmetics, founded in 2016 and famous for its Lip Kits, is now worth almost $800 million and the beauty mogul, who until recently opted for fillers to make her ow lips look plump, owns 100 per cent of the company.

The magazine estimates she's now worth $900 million (USD). "Social media is an awesome platform", she says in the Forbes cover story. "I have such easy access to my fans and my customers.It's really my only passion".
