Mark Zuckerberg old news as Kylie Jenner makes $1bn

The digital dictionary source responded to a Forbes report last July, that projected a then-20-year-old Jenner would become the "youngest self-made billionaire ever, " surpassing Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who became a billionaire at 23.

"I didn't expect anything".

Now that Kylie Jenner is considered a billionaire, that makes her the richest member of the Kardashian-Jenner family. A post on crypto coins news further argued that such support contradicts the notion of "self-made" in Jenner's case, which indirectly questions Forbes' process for selecting candidates.

Jenner, who is also the youngest in her family to become a billionaire, has a personal net worth of $1 billion.

She was surprised by the success of her cosmetics company which was only founded in 2015 but is now worth an estimated $900million. Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, who independently owns The Washington Post, and Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates still hold the top two spots.

Microsoft Corp (MSFT.O) co-founder Bill Gates remained in the No. 2 position with an estimated fortune of $96.5 billion, up from $90 billion previous year.

The social media personality made the cut as Forbes Magazine released its 2019 World Billionaires list on Tuesday, March 5.

"It's the power of social media", Jenner explains.

Jenner's wealth is thanks to her hugely successful Kylie cosmetics range, in particular, her lip kits.

Just seven months into her tenure as a legal adult, Kylie Jenner has added a fun new title to a list that already includes age-defying labels like mom and business owner: billionaire. Kylie would be in 2,057th place whether she was self-made or inherited. "I did not foresee the future", she told Forbes.

She has almost 27 million followers on Twitter and 128 million on Instagram, helping her to promote her products to her key consumer base - her own fans.
