People are dunking on Forbes for suggesting Kylie Jenner is ‘self-made’

She's already the youngest person on Forbes' list of richest self-made U.S. women and another year of growth would make her the youngest self-made billionaire ever, beating Mark Zuckerberg, who crossed the threshold at the age of 23.

People love to hate Kylie Jenner.

The 20-year-old reality star also shared a precious snap of Stormi lying on her chest while wearing a white onesie.

Forbes Magazine has unveiled the cover of their 2018 August issue about "America's Women Billionaires", with makeup mogul Kylie Jenner gracing the front page. It has been reported that the brand is worth an estimated $800 million, which Jenner is the sole owner of. Her beauty line Kylie Cosmetics has earned over $900 million since it launched three years ago.

While makeup and more specifically lip kits were a natural fit for Jenner ― she recently made headlines for ditching her signature lip fillers ― she says she "struggled for a minute" to identify her passion in a family where each member is successful in their own way. What inspired her to help other women with her cosmetics company. She says someone can still be self-made with a little all just depends on what you do with it. "But at the end of the day, the negative comments and haters are only fuel for her to work harder and make another billion dollars". Kris Jenner manages her daughters' finances and public relations for a 10 percent cut - meaning that previous year, Kylie paid her mom $17 million.

Forbes said the firm has only seven full-time and five part-time employees, with manufacturing, packaging and sales outsourced, and momager Kris handling the business side in exchange for a 10-per cent management cut.

Meanwhile, Kim, 37, has been in the reality TV business for most of Kylie's life-and she still hasn't become quite as rich! And without that fame, as well as their wealth even before that fame, Jenner apparently wouldn't be able to reach this level of success.

There have been rumblings ever since Kim's sex tape was first leaked that Kris was behind the operation, a rumor she has firmly denied in the few other times she has discussed the video.
