Kylie Jenner, 22, is Forbes’ youngest ‘self-made’ billionaire for the SECOND year in a row

Forbes released the annual World’s Billionaires list on Wednesday and beauty mogul Kylie remains the planet’s youngest self-made billionaire at aged 22.

In 2019, the star unseated Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, 35, as the youngest-ever self-made billionaire – he was 23 when he made his first billion 11 years ago in 2008.

Forbes has addressed the controversy that surrounds the title ‘self-made’ as last year, people were up in arms that Kylie came from an already privileged background.

They penned: ‘ Yes, self-made (despite a lot of help from her famous family, she didn’t inherit her business—she built it). And yes, billionaire (she’s worth $1 billion).’

Kylie famously made it onto the billionaires list in March 2019.

Then in November last year, she sold off 51% of her Kylie Cosmetics brand to beauty brand Coty Inc. for $600 million.
