Kim Kardashian Defends Kylie Jenner Being Called a 'Self-Made' Billionaire

Described as the youngest self-made billionaire in history, it's the cool $900 million she has made from her company Kylie Cosmetics that earned her the recognition of Forbes. However, upon gracing the magazine cover, Kylie was hit hard by critics who don't believe she deserved the honor, to begin with, by claiming the young entrepreneur's success isn't "self-made" due to her namesake and her appearance on Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

It was the magazine's definition of "self-made" that had tongues wagging the most as Kylie was thrust into the limelight at the age of 10, of the back of her sister's rise to fame and the families reality TV show.

"Kendall and I were really branded together, and we wanted to do everything together, and we were like a team". I know so many people like that [who] haven't turned out to be as successful as Kylie. "If anything, I've seen the complete opposite". This shows how incredible her career is, but her fans also want to help her out.

'Even using a conservative multiple, and applying our standard 20% discount, Forbes values her company, which has since added other cosmetics like eye shadow and concealer, at almost $800 million.

Estimated to be worth $900 million (£678 million), the 20-year-old landed at the number 27 spot on the yearly rich list, eclipsing her older half-sister Kim Kardashian, owner of KKW Beauty, who came in at 54 with $350 million (£264 million). "It's just an insecurity of mine".

According to Kim, she and her sisters did not depend on their wealthy parents for "anything besides advice". "That's how I lived my life with my dad". Kylie has come under severe criticism for a video she posted on social media of herself with five-month-old daughter Stormi.

Kim Kardashian is the best known of the family, with only 2% saying they haven't heard of her.
