Forbes, who back in 2018 had Kylie Jenner on their cover calling her "The Youngest Self-Made Billionaire," released a story Friday claiming she's "no longer" a billionaire and gave a look inside her "web of lies."

Kylie sold 51% of her company Kylie Cosmetics in Jan. 2020 in a deal valued at $1.2B. However, Forbes claims that Kylie and her mom Kris Jenner have been misleading the industry on how big Kylie Cosmetics actually is.


Forbes estimated that rather than being a billionaire, Kylie is worth around $340M. Kylie took to Twitter after the claims were released to tell her side of things.

"What am I even waking up to. I thought this was a reputable site.. all I see are a number of inaccurate statements and unproven assumptions lol. I’ve never asked for any title or tried to lie my way there EVER. period," Kylie tweeted.


Kylie ended her Twitter rant by saying she's "blessed beyond her years," and essentially discrediting Forbes' claims.
