The magazine estimates Jenner’s net worth to be roughly $900 million, making her the 27th-richest self-made woman in the US.

“Another year of growth will make her the youngest self-made billionaire ever, male or female, trumping Mark Zuckerberg, who became a billionaire at age 23,” Forbes reported.

However, some took issue with Forbes classifying Jenner as a “self-made” near-billionaire.

A twitter user posted:

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

Kylie Jenner has really made a name for herself in the beauty world. So much so that Kylie Cosmetics has gained $900 million, and she’s only 20-years-old.

The company was launched only 3 years ago, so landing the cover of Forbes America’s Women Billionaire is pretty justified.

But most people are of the opinion the phrase ‘self made’ shouldn’t have been applied in her case.

Kylie is the youngest person on the fourth annual ranking of America’s Richest Self-Made Women, but what people have an issue with is the ‘Self-Made’ part.
