Kylie Jenner becomes the world’s youngest self-made billionaire at age 21

Owner of Kylie cosmetics Kylie Jenner makes it to Forbes billionaire list

There's a new tycoon in town.

The 21-year-old Keeping Up With The Kardashians reality star and beauty entrepreneur is now the world's youngest billionaire, according to Forbes on Tuesday (March 5).

Mr Zuckerberg, the Facebook founder and chief executive, dropped three places to number eight, as his fortune fell by $12.3 billion to $87.9 billion.

The 53-year-old tried to get his head around the situation, saying Kim's family "cashed in" on her sex tape leaking. The 61-year-old, who is the only Asian among the top 10, saw a Dollars 9 billion or 20% surge in his wealth, taking his net worth to USD 54 billion.Ambani bucked the poor stock market trend in India in the last year, and Reliance Jio Infocomm announced the launch of worldwide roaming between India and Japan, a first for India's 4G mobile operators to provide VoLTE-based global roaming services in India.

As part of their 2019 World Billionaires ranking, the magazine profiled Jenner, who reached $1 billion in profit two years faster than the previous incumbent youngest ever billionaire, Mark Zuckerberg. Not every rich kid could've done what she did.

"Forbes defines "self-made" as someone who built a company or established a fortune on her own, rather than inheriting some or all of it". Dictionary.com's Twitter account wrote, including its definition of "self-made".

"Haven't we gone over this?" "Having succeeded in life unaided". "What I'm trying to say is I did have a platform, but none of my money is inherited".

"I didn't expect anything".

She has attributed her rise up the rich list to her vast and dedicated following, telling Forbes: "It's the power of social media".

After the Kardashian drama surrounding Khloe, her ex Tristan Thompson and Jordyn Woods, fans were left fearing for Kylie Jenner's relationship with Travis Scott, the father of her daughter, Stormi, after rumours emerged the lip kit queen found some suspicious messages in his DMs. A post on crypto coins news further argued that such support contradicts the notion of "self-made" in Jenner's case, which indirectly questions Forbes' process for selecting candidates.

We bet it is.
