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.

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.

9. Twitter

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.

Jenner launched Kylie Cosmetics in 2015 and branded it as such in 2016.
