Kylie Jenner claims she got it out the mud.
The Internet had a lot to say when Forbes claimed Kylie Jenner was on pace to become America's youngest billionaire. With the platform she has from the Kardashian-Jenner clout, there's no doubt that she had a major advantage when it came to launching her own business. However, she insists that she is a self-made almost billionaire. The 21-year-old explained that her parents cut her off at 15 and forced her to hustle.
Kylie Jenner covered Paper Magazine's latest issue and spoke about motherhood, plastic surgery and her road to riches. Despite the assumptions that she was able to reach near-billionaire status due to her family's wealth, she said that's not the case.
“I had such a huge platform, I had so many followers already and I had so many people watching me,” she said. Claiming that the "self-made" title is true, she said that her parents "cut her off at the age of 15."
“My parents told me I needed to make my own money, it’s time to learn how to save and spend your own money, stuff like that,” Jenner said. “What I’m trying to say is I did have a platform, but none of my money is inherited.”
Jenner also debunked plastic surgery theories.
"People think I fully went under the knife and completely reconstructed my face, which is completely false," she said. "I'm terrified! I would never. They don't understand what good hair and makeup and, like, fillers, can really do."
