Early Life:

Kylie Jenner was brought into the spotlight at a very young age through the show Keeping Up With The Kardashians. The show featured the day-to-day happening in the Kardashian/Jenner family, and Kylie was just 10 when the show started. Although the show was not a critical success, it still garnered a huge audience for E! Network.

Rise in Popularity:

Initially the show focused on Kylie’s elder and the most popular sister Kim Kardashian, and as she slowly grew up throughout the show, Kylie’s life was also featured. In fact she became so popular that she got her own spin-off show called Life of Kylie, but was cancelled after the first season.

Keeping Up With The Kardashians aired for twenty seasons and the final season just aired a few months ago.

Business Ventures:

In 2015, Kylie Jenner launched her own lip-kit collection called Kylie Lip-Kit. Later in February 2016, she renamed the name of her cosmetic brand and changed it to Kylie Cosmetics. Since this, the company sold a huge amount of kits from initial 15,000 to 500,000.

Just after a year in June 2017, Kyllie was placed at number 59 in the list of Forbes Celebrity 100, which is the list of highest paid celebrities in the past twelve months. She was just 19 at that time and her net worth was US$41 Million, making her the youngest person in the list.

How did Kylie Jenner become a billionaire?

In 2018, Forbes magazine claimed that Jenner had a net worth of over $900 Million, hence she was on the verge of becoming the youngest billionaire. Forbes also titled her as “Youngest Self-made Billionaire”, which will in fact break the record of Mark Zuckerburg, the CEO of Facebook, who became a billionaire at the age of 23.

The word ‘self-made’ created a huge argument online where people claimed that Kylie Jenner was already born in a rich family with fame and fortune, and she is not ‘self-made’. Even more serious discussions took place when journalists started writing pieces on wealth distribution, inequality and inheritance, as well as upward mobility in society.

Many celebrities came to defend Kylie, including her sister Kim Kardashian and her friend and socialite Paris Hilton, who claimed that Kylie is in fact self-made.

However in May 2020, the Forbes Magazine released a statement accusing Kylie of forging the tax documents and fabricating revenue figures of Kylie Cosmetics. Responding to this, Kylie tweeted a series of tweets writing:

“What am I even waking up to? I thought this was a reputable site… All I see are a number of inaccurate statements and unproven assumptions lol. I’ve never asked for any title or tried to lie my way there EVER. Period.”

Jenner’s attorney also called the magazine’s accusations as “unequivocally false” to which Forbes reacted saying that they spent months uncovering the facts and concluded that their “extensively-reported investigation was triggered by newly-files documents that revealed glaring discrepancies between information privately supplied to journalists and information publicly supplied to shareholders.”

Kylie Jenner Net Worth:

As of now, kylie Jenner net worth is around $700 Million and she has been included in the list of Forbes100 Richest Self-Made Women, making her the youngest one in the list.

Personal Life and Relationships:

Kylie started dating rapper Tyga in 2014, which created a widespread buzz because she was underage at that time. However, in 2015 after Kylie turned 18, they made their relationship public. Still, the couple could not last long and they broke up in 2017.

In the same month, she was spotted with rapper Travis Scott in Coachella Valley Music Festival, and the next year in February 2018, she gave birth to their first daughter, Stormie Webster. Kylie shared a picture of Stormie holding her finger, which became the most liked picture on Instagram until it was surpassed by the World Record Egg.

Kylie and Travis broke up in September 2019, but still they quarantined together during COVID-19  pandemic for the sake of their daughter.

Jenner was also a close friend to Jordyn Woods, and she also appeared in Life of Kylie. However, in 2019 Jordyn was spotted hooking up with Tristan Thompson, who is the boyfriend of Kylie’s sister Khloe Kardashian, and also the father of Khloe’s daughter True. This broke up the friendship of Kylie and Jordyn, and she also cut the price of her lip-kit that was named after Woods.

Other Ventures:

Kylie along with her sister Kendall Jenner released a book called Rebels: City of Indra: The Story of Lex and Livia. The novel is set in the dystopian world and tells the story of two sisters: Lex and Livia. However, it was received with negative reviews and the Jenner sisters were slammed for using a ghostwriter Maya Sloan.

She has also appeared in a number of music videos including “Find That Girl” by Boy Band Project, “Recognize” by PartyNextDoor ft. Drake, “Blue Ocean” by Jaden Smith, “Stimulated” and “Dope’d Up” by Tyga, “I’m Yours” by Justine Skye ft. Vic Mensa, “Come and See Me” by PartyNextDoor, “Stop Trying To Be God” by Travis Scott, “Stuck With U” by Justin Bieber and Ariana Grane, and “WAP” by Cardi B  ft. Megan Thee Stallion.
