Make-up mogul, Kylie Jenner, has admitted she had ‘a lot of help’ on her way to being the youngest ‘self-made’ billionaire.
Recall after Forbes published a story “America’s Women Billionaires” and made Jenner it’s cover woman as the youngest self-made billionaire at 21 earlier this month. It generated a lot of controversies and criticism online as many pointed out that she grew up in a wealthy and famous family.
Now, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has admitted she wouldn’t have been able to make it on her own without a lot of ‘help’ from her family and friends including her mom Kris Jenner.
She told the New York Times newspaper: ‘I can’t say I’ve done it by myself. If they’re just talking finances, technically, yes, I don’t have any inherited money. But I have had a lot of help and a huge platform.’
She said: ‘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.’
