Kylie Jenner Is Now The World’s Youngest Billionaire At The Age Of 21
Forbes has announced Kylie Jenner as the youngest billionaire in the world at the age of 21.
In the Forbes annual list which was released on Tuesday, March 5, 2019, Kylie Jenner is both the youngest self-made billionaire and the youngest billionaire on Forbes’ ‘young billionaires’ list.
Jenner has amassed a personal net worth of $1billion through her wildly successful range of make-up, Kylie Cosmetics. She has now overtaken Facebook’s founder, Mark Zuckerberg who became a billionaire at 23.
She was surprised by the success of her cosmetics company which was only founded in 2015 but is now worth an estimated $900million.
“I didn’t expect anything. I did not foresee the future,” says Jenner, who is the youngest billionaire in the world. “But [the recognition] feels really good. That’s a nice pat on the back.”
This latest development is coming months after it was announced that Kylie was in a tie with music mogul, Jay-Z as the 5th wealthiest person in the world.
