NeNe Leakes Clarifies Comment On Kylie Jenner's Forbes Cover After Dropping Shade

All together, Jenner's earnings put her fourth in Forbes' annual ranking of America's richest self-made women.

Once she crosses the $1 billion mark, she will unseat Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg as the youngest-ever self-made billionaire. Jenner is the sole owner, reaping all the profits.

Thanks to her makeup line, Kylie Cosmetics, Kylie Jenner is on track to be the youngest self-made billionaire by the time she turns 21 in August. In a cover story about the 20-year-old multi-millionaire, Forbes conservatively values the company at $800 million, with an estimated $330 million in sales last year.

Forbes reports that Kylie Cosmetics, founded in 2016 and famous for its Lip Kits, is now worth almost $800 million and the beauty mogul, who until recently opted for fillers to make her ow lips look plump, owns 100 per cent of the company.

Discussion around whether Jenner, whose upbringing in ritzy Calabasas was documented on "Keeping Up With the Kardashians", is truly "self-made" quickly exploded.

Whatever Jenner's worth may be, many on social media took exception to her being called "self-made" since she is a member of the wealthy and famous Kardashian/Jenner clan. "Kylie is a master of branding, and she plays with the concept of mother - the more natural look - and her Kylie Cosmetics look, full glam".

"Self-made means having succeeded in life unaided", the online dictionary tweeted. Used in a sentence: "Forbes says that Kylie Jenner is a self-made woman".
