Kylie Jenner Is The Youngest Self-made Billionaire In History

Travis Scott might want to stop cheating on his baby mama Kylie Jenner.

At age 21, Kylie Jenner is not only the young celebrity in the Kardashian/Jenner clan, but she is also the world’s youngest self-made billionaire in history. Forbes magazine formally welcomed Kylie to the billionaire club on Tuesday after her lipstick company, Kylie Cosmetics, ballooned in net worth to over a billion dollars, yes that’s nine zeroes. The news comes just days after she reportedly accused Travis Scott of cheating on her.

“I didn’t expect anything. I did not foresee the future,” Jenner told Forbes. “But [the recognition] feels really good. That’s a nice pat on the back.”

Kylie Jenner toppled Mark Zuckerberg who previously held the title for the youngest billionaire after crossing the milestone in 2008 when Facebook became a household brand. At the time Zuckerberg was 23 years old. Kylie is now a mere 21 and is already a self-made billionaire. Jenner is now the 2,057th richest person in the world.

Forbes estimated that Kylie Cosmetics raked in $360m in sales last year. She mostly runs the company using her iPhone, and if you follow her on Instagram, you will notice that she regularly promote new products from the company. The richest person in the world remains Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos with a whopping $131bn fortune mostly held in his shares in Amazon.
