With assets now worth $ 900 million at age of 20, Forbes predicts Kylie Jenner, the youngest of the Kardashian family will become the youngest self-made billionaire in the world.

Currently, Kylie is not old enough to drink alcohol in the U.S., but she is richer than her older sister Kim Kardashian West, 37, who has about $ 350 million in assets.

Kylie Jenner founded her own cosmetics brand, Kylie Cosmetics, two years ago, with a range of lipstick and eyeliner products worth $ 800 million, according to Forbes magazine.

Kylie Jenner is in the 27th place on the list of Forbes billionaire – self-made billionaires (who make their own fortune without support) and Jenner goes straight to the billion-dollar spot at any time. Which is similar with Mark Zuckerberg – who achieved this at the age of 23.

Evan Spiegel, founder of Snapchat, also became a billionaire in his twenties, but it is unclear exactly how many years he made this achievement, according to the BBC.

Forbes magazine has covered her success story on Jul 11, 2018 and write about Jenner’s life with her photo on the cover. Kylie has shared this picture on Instagram with her 110 million followers.

While the story gets a lot of attention, on the social network there is also much opposition to Forbes using the phrase itself billionaire for Kylie, simply because she inherited the wealth and popularity of family, conditions make it easier for her to make money.

Jenner became famous when she was 10 years old due to appearing with her family on the reality show about herself – “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.”

With the show “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” she is simply placed in the spot where she will be famous and successful – it helped her so much for a great start.

At the age of 18, as the founding of the cosmetics chain, she was a star, an idol of youth. If someone else created the same cosmetic chain, it would not have been as successful as Kylie’s.
