When Forbes crowned Kylie Jenner as the youngest home-made billionaire in March, the world had a lot to say. While many people celebrated Jenner on social media, others criticized her and said she was not homemade because she grew up in a rich, famous family.
But what about the Kardashians? What do they think of their baby sister reaching billionaire status?
Kylie Jenner just shared their feelings
Kylie Jenner recently sat down with Ellen DeGeneres for a chat on the host’s TV show, where she revealed how her family thinks about her status.
She said that although they are “really proud of me,” they sometimes tease her.
“When we talk in a group chat about where to go for a trip, they say,” Kylie? Are you going to pay for it? “She said in a clip of the upcoming episode (via Us Weekly). “Just things like that.”
Kim, Kourtney, Khloé and Rob Kardashian and Kendall Jenner did not comment on the comments. But it sounds like they were clearly joked.
Jenner was accompanied by her mother, Kris Jenner, whom she credits for the success of her makeup line, Kylie Cosmetics. With her business acumen and exceptional PR skills, Kris has contributed to building the brand into what it is today.
“I really appreciate my mother for what Kylie Cosmetics is now. With my creativity and her business spirit, we are the dream team together, “Jenner told Harper’s Bazaar in his July / August issue.
How Kylie Jenner became a billionaire
Well, it wasn’t really a nightly process for the reality star. Kylie Jenner first started dabbling in the cosmetics industry in 2015 when she launched Kylie Lip Kits.
The following year, she changed the name of the company, Kylie Cosmetics, and sold the products to millions of followers on social media. It took Kylie Jenner about three years to cross the billionaire mark.
She later credited “the power of social media” for her share in the fortune of her company while talking to Forbes.
“I had such a long reach before I could start something,” she explained. “I see [Kylie Cosmetics] go very far [because] I work very hard.”
But, she said, she definitely did not see the company as the cash cow it is.
“I did not expect anything. I did not foresee the future,” Jenner added. “But [the recognition] feels really good. That is a nice pat on the back.”
Kylie Jenner is expanding her business
The beauty mulul recently expanded the brand with skin care products. After-synchronized Kylie Skin, the line consists of face wash, moisturizer, a (controversial) walnut scrub and more.
And she could expand it even further. She is reportedly preparing to release a baby brand, a wine line, hair products, nail care products and fragrances.
Reports also say that she may also be ready to expand her family. (She shares a 1-year-old daughter, Stormi, with friend Travis Scott.)
“Everyone thinks Kylie will soon get pregnant with her second baby. They try, “a source told People on July 15.” Kylie likes to be a mother and can’t wait to give Stormi a brother or sister. “
It is unclear when it will happen, but we will keep you updated with updates on this billionaire.
