Travis Scott and others including Momager Kris Jenner and a huge number of onlookers reacted to Forbes’ claim that Kylie Jenner could be a billionaire by the end of the year.
Due to the success of Kylie Cosmetics of which she owns 100%, Jenner’s net worth is now a whopping $900 million. She has surpassed other members of her family, including Kim Kardashian West ($350 million) and Kris Jenner ($60 million). Due to the success she has had in the last 3 years, Jenner is not only included in Forbes’ list of ‘Richest Self-Made Women’, but it is also predicted that by the end of this year, she will be the youngest ‘self-made’ billionaire. If that happens, she will be beating out former title-holders such as Mark Zuckerberg.
Since Jenner’s cover has hit social media, Jenner’s family, other celebrities and fans on Twitter cannot stop commenting on Jenner’s success.
1. Travis Scott
Kylie and Travis do not usually address each other on social media. Apart from a joint appearance at the 2018 Met Gala, the two have stayed away from any major declarations on social media or otherwise. However, Scott took to Twitter to post about Jenner’s Forbes cover, captioning it, “CANT BE MORE PROUD.”
2. Kris Jenner
Posting Kylie’s cover on Instagram, Kris wrote a note for her youngest daughter. She said, “My beauty on the cover of Forbes Magazine!! I am SO proud of you @kyliejenner and everything you have accomplished. You work so tirelessly on your business, and with so much passion and precision. As a mother, it brings me immense joy to watch you continue to make your @kyliecosmetics dreams a reality!!”
In her interview with Forbes, Kylie credited her mother with a lot of her success. Like she does with all of her children and clients, Kris manages the finance and PR of Kylie Cosmetics in exchange for a 10% commission.
3. Kendall Jenner
Kendall was one of the first to take to social media to congratulate her little sister. Some part of Kylie’s $900 million net worth can be credited to her business ventures with Kendall, such as the Kendall + Kylie collection and the Kendall and Kylie Video Game.
Kendall, who works as a model, has a net worth of $18 million.
4. Kourtney Kardashian
The eldest siblings of the Kardashian-Jenner brood also congratulated Jenner on her cover.
5. Kim Kardashian
Kim, who is the next richest person in the family, congratulated Kylie on social media. Although Kim is just one step behind Kylie in terms of family wealth, there is a significant difference in their net worths with Jenner being worth $900 million and Kim being worth $350 million. The success of KKW Beauty since its conception projects that Kim’s net worth will also be jumping significantly within this year.
6. Khloe Kardashian
Khloe also took to Instagram to celebrate Jenner’s cover by placing it amidst a literal money shower.
7. Kylie Jenner herself
Jenner took to Instagram herself to let her 110 million followers know her thoughts on her cover. She wrote, “wow. I can’t believe I’m posting my very own @forbes cover. Thank you for this article and the recognition. I’m so blessed to do what I love everyday. I couldn’t have dreamt this up! #KylieCosmetics”
Instagram celebrity Josh Ostrovsky took to social media to joke around about Jenner’s billion dollar goals. Creating a gofundme, he wrote “Kylie Jenner was on the cover of Forbes Magazine today for having net worth of 900 million dollars, which is heartbreaking. I don’t want to live in a world where Kylie Jenner doesn’t have a billon dollars. WE MUST RAISE 100 MILLION DOLLARS TO HELP HER GET TO A BILLION, PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD. THIS IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT.”
He also provided a genuine link where people can donate for this ’cause’. Both Kylie and Kendall liked the spoof post. At the time of writing, 26 people raised $412 dollars in the last 8 hours.
Social media as a whole had a lot to say about Jenner potentially becoming the youngest self-made billionaire this year. Forbes explained that she was being titled self-made because at the start of her career, she invested $250,000 dollars from money she had made through endorsements and modelling to finance the 15,000 original lip kits. Despite this, most people took strong issue with Jenner being called self-made, saying her family and social background made her a success, not her investment. For others, Jenner’s new title will be well-deserved. For some, Jenner being lauded for her business strategies is a laughable idea as a whole.
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. Her story is not inspiring or motivating for anyone https://t.co/YMnTSzHlKP

calling kylie jenner a ‘self-made billionaire’ is like claiming you made soup from scratch because you opened a can and reheated it.

The year is 2018:
•Kim Kardashian’s youngest sister, Kylie Jenner, is almost a self made billionaire worth $900M
•Kim Kardashian herself is only $5M away from being worth more than the biggest superstar in music.

Maybe it's far fetched to laud Kylie Jenner (because we all know this is all Kris) and tout her as a self-made billionaire, but the girl did capitalize on her generational wealth, white privilege and fame in a major way. I mean, it could have gone left. Just look at Rob…

angling and celebrating kylie jenner’s wealth as a self made female billionaire is exactly what makes liberals unlikable, not universal health care and free tuition.

Kylie Jenner is a billionaire and some people still scoff at the concept of 'redistribution of wealth'?

Kylie Jenner is not a SELF MADE BILLIONAIRE.
She is a product of the reality empire created, by her sister in which she USED to further her MAINSTREAM APPEAL.
Advocating Kylie Jenner as Self Made is a slap in the face, to the REAL Entrepreneurs in world business.
