Kylie Jenner overtakes Mark Zuckerberg to become world youngest billionaire
Reality TV star, Kylie Jenner has overtaken Mark Zuckerberg to become the youngest billionaire on Forbes list.
Kylie Jenner is not only the youngest billionaire but also the youngest self-made billionaire. Kylie Jenner’s new position on the billionaire list was revealed in the Forbes 2019 billionaire list.
This is all thanks to her make-up line, Kylie Cosmetics; her reality TV checks, endorsement deals, and clothing lines.
However, Kylie Jenner refuses to take full credit for her achievement rather she says it’s the power of social media.
In her words:
I didn’t expect anything. I did not foresee the future. But [the recognition] feels really good. That’s a nice pat on the back.
It’s the power of social media. I had such a strong reach before I was able to start anything…I see [Kylie Cosmetics] going very far. I work really hard.
Fans of the cosmetic mogul had set up a gofund me last year in 2018 in a bid to raise $100M for Kylie Jenner so she can become a billionaire.
The attempt to raise $100M came after Kylie Jenner’s net worth at the time was announced to be $900M.
