Forbes Reveals That Kylie Jenner Is More Successful Than Mark Zuckerberg
Jul 12 2018
Forbes said it valued the 20-year-old's company at almost $US800 million and that Jenner owns 100% of it.
With over 100 million followers on her Instagram, the social media outlet has been fruitful in providing Jenner her own platform in which to promote and showcase her business, which many would argue is very important, especially considering that the makeup line can be a hard sell. At her tender age, Forbes also ranks Jenner as the youngest person on its annual list of "America's Richest Self-Made Women". Jenner is the sole owner, reaping all the profits.
Kylie's boyfriend and Stormi's father, Travis Scott, couldn't be more proud of his girlfriend for her impressive accomplishment.
If Jenner keeps this up, she's expected to make history by becoming the youngest self-made billionaire of both men and women within the next year. "I have such easy access to my fans and my customers", she told Forbes.
But while such huge success at such a young age would usually be lauded, the reaction to Jenner's cover has largely been anything but, with people calling the reality TV star and Forbes out on the "self-made" description.
"It has sold more than $630 million worth of makeup since, including an estimated $330m in 2017".
Momager Kris and her siblings all took to social media to congratulate the 20-year-old. Thank you for this article and the recognition. Kris Jenner manages her daughters' finances and public relations for a 10 percent cut - meaning that past year, Kylie paid her mom $17 million. "I'm so blessed to do what I love every day", she tweeted next to a photograph of the cover story.
As Reynolds wrote, "As the youngest child of an already booming empire, Jenner grew up on television and was born into wealth; her struggles to get her business up and off the ground were eased greatly by her family's wealth".
Kylie says she'll be working on Kylie Cosmetics forever, but would consider passing it down to her daughter Stormi Webster someday, "if she's into it".
Kylie Kristen Jenner being the youngest member of the Kardashian-Jenner family is an American TV personality, entrepreneur, model and socialite.
She later repeated the post, writing: "Wait I'm posting this again just because!"
