Kylie Jenner (22) was unjustly crowned the youngest ‘self-made’ billionaire in the world. Kim Kardashian’s 22-year-old half-sister appears to be worth just under 900 million dollars and has even fiddled with tax refunds so that her assets would be higher, reports business magazine Forbes Friday after a new investigation.
Earlier this year, the business magazine placed Kylie for the second time as the youngest billionaire on the wealthy list with a capital of about 1.2 billion dollars.
Now documents previously supplied by her team appear to be not quite correct, says Forbes. For example, she was left with a lot less than she had communicated to the deal with beauty giant Coty Inc., to whom she sold 51 percent of her shares in her successful company Kylie Cosmetics, last year.
According to Forbes, it’s obvious that “Kylie’s team lied.” The tax refunds that employees of the magazine received after visits to her accountant and at her home were “most likely falsified.”
She owes nearly 900 million dollars; she would be worth to Kylie Cosmetics, founded in 2014. Although Kylie can be seen together with her family in the reality series ‘Keeping Up! with the Kardashians’, her bank account feels a lot less of that.
Kylie Jenner contradicts the accusations on Twitter. “I thought this was a respectable website,” she responds. “All I see are a number of inaccurate statements and unproven assumptions. I’ve never asked for any title or tried to lie my way there ever.”
The reality star and founder of Kylie Cosmetics don’t seem to like Forbes’ new research. “I am blessed beyond my years, I have a beautiful daughter, and a successful business and I’m doing perfectly fine,” says Kylie. “I can name a list of 100 things more important right now than fixating on how much money I have.”
