Today, Forbes published a cover story announcing the youngest projected self-made billionaire, which showed Kylie Jenner at the age of only 20, has a net worth of 900 million dollars. Yes, you read that correctly, and in just one more year, the magazine estimates that she’ll become the youngest billionaire in history, at age 21.

With Kylie Cosmetics having an estimated net worth of $800,000,000, and a number of endorsement deals, she is on track to become the youngest in history to make one billion dollars, breaking the record held by Mark Zuckerburg who hit the billionaire status at the age of 23.

However, Twitter users alike have mixed feeling on her status of “self-made,” where Forbes defines it as “anyone who didn’t inherit any part of their money.” People argue, because her reality star fame, that it was the help of her family that made her become this rich, even if Kim Kardashian only has a net worth of $350 million dollars.
