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.
