KUALA LUMPUR, March 12 (Bernama) -- Forbes magazine has named Kylie Jenner as the youngest self-made billionaire of all time last Tuesday, reported Reuters.

Jenner, 21, is the half-sister of Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian from reality TV ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’.

According to Reuters, Jenner, who owns 100 per cent of the company, made it to the annual Forbes list of billionaires after her Kylie Cosmetics online debut in 2015.

"She was both the world’s youngest billionaire and also the youngest self-made billionaire ever that succeed ranked 2,057th from 2,153 among other billionaire as self-made or inherited on Forbes 2019 list," said Forbes.

However, netizens were reported to be outraged at the recognition, particularly on the ‘self-made’ part.

Twitter users argued that Jenner was barely on her own, thanks to the global influence of her immensely popular half-sister, Kim Kardashian.
