Dictionary.com Fact-Checks Forbes’ Claim That Kylie Jenner Is ‘Self-Made’

The magazine estimates Jenner's net worth to be roughly $900 million, making her the 27th-richest self-made woman in the United States.

Toke Makinwa is out with a new episode of her "Toke Moments" vlog and in this episode, she's talking about the Kylie Jenner Forbes magazine cover that was released this week.

Featured on the cover with the headline "America's Women Billionaires", Kylie, who welcomed daughter Stormi in February, was called one of "the 60 richest self-made women".

"Calling Kylie Jenner a "self-made billionaire' is like claiming you made soup from scratch because you opened a can and reheated it", while another posted on Twitter: "For f*** sake, if you start the 40-yard dash on the 39-yard line, you are NOT self-made".


According to Forbes one more year and she will be the youngest billionaire in the history. "Her story is not inspiring or motivating for anyone".

Forbes released an Instagram photo for the cover of the August 31 issue of the magazine yesterday, July 11.

Dictionary.com also pointed out that the searches for "self-made" were up by 18,628 per cent on their website.

"Self-made means having succeeded in life unaided", they said in the tweet. And today, she is worth nearly a billion. "Yes, Kylie comes from a wealthy family and she got a visibility boost from her family, but she owns her company and is valued based on earnings she has personally received and on the value of the company she founded".
