Kylie Jenner is a reality TV star who is reported to be the youngest self-made billionaire ever, reaching a net worth of $1 billion at age 21. Not only is she famous for being a reality TV star, she also has a daughter with rapper Travis Scott. She also owns houses in La Quinta, California and Beverly Hills, and has penned a fiction novel.
Kylie Jenner is the youngest self-made billionaire
Forbes magazine named Kylie Jenner the world’s youngest self-made billionaire. She has surpassed Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, who reached the same milestone at age 23. Jenner has made a name for herself as a makeup mogul, with her popular Kylie Cosmetics brand. At only 21, she is the youngest self-made billionaire, beating out her siblings and mom Kris.
Forbes magazine crowned Kylie Jenner the youngest self-made billionaire ever last year, and she hasn’t been topped since. Forbes reports that she has a net worth of $1 billion, and that she is the world’s youngest billionaire. Forbes also points out that there are nine other billionaires under 30 in the world today, including two heirs to billionaires.
Forbes magazine’s definition of a self-made billionaire has been debated, with some critics claiming Jenner was born into fame and wealth, and did not achieve this level of success on her own. But Jenner’s entrepreneurial efforts are impressive, and it’s easy to see why she’s considered a self-made billionaire. While she’s far from the richest member of the Kardashian family, her mother Kim Kardashian West is estimated to be worth around $350 million.
Relationship with rapper Travis Scott
After a brief romance, Kylie Jenner and rapper Travis Scott split up in 2019. However, they have remained on good terms while co-parenting their daughter Stormi. Earlier this year, they sparked rumors of a reunion when they were spotted together at the Parsons Benefit in New York City. Despite their tight-lipped relationship status, friends reportedly predicted that the couple would give birth to another child together in the future.
Sure enough, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star gave birth to a boy. Jenner had been busy decorating her nursery and planning a baby shower for the new addition to the family. While initially naming him “Wolf”, she has since changed her mind, stating the following:
“FYI our son’s name isn’t Wolf anymore. We just really didn’t feel like it was him,” she shared via Instagram Stories in March 2022. “Just wanted to share because I keep seeing Wolf everywhere.”
She has owned homes in Beverly Hills and La Quinta
It is a well known fact that Kylie Jenner has been active in real estate, owning eight properties across Southern California. Her properties range from a vacant lot in La Quinta to a $13.5 million Beverly Hills mansion. Her main residence, a sprawling estate in the Hidden Hills, cost $12 million and has been extensively renovated. But who exactly owns these properties?
In 2016, the reality TV star moved into a $6 million Hidden Hills mansion, but sold it for $6.7 million in an off-market deal. The same year, she bought an undeveloped plot next to her Beverly Hills mansion for $4.5 million, intending to use it for her Kylie Cosmetics headquarters. In December of the same year, she listed her Hidden Hills home for sale for $5.4 million. Despite the high price tag, she also picked up an empty lot next door, which she allegedly planned to turn into a horse stable.
When she was 18 years old, Kylie Jenner purchased her first property. A 4,851-square-foot Tuscan-style home in Calabasas cost her $2.6 million. Afterwards, she listed the property for $3.15 million, making it her most expensive purchase. But the young beauty mogul has been selling off her property for big bucks. She is already expanding her portfolio, and has plans to build a new home in the same area in the near future.
According to the New York Times, Kendall and Kylie Jenner have co-authored a fiction novel, Rebels: City of Indra. The book was ghostwritten by Maya Sloan, a creative writing graduate from the University of Arkansas and Boston University.
The authors of the novel have been criticized for using ghostwriters to write the book. However, the author of the book has denied that she ghost-wrote the book. The creative director of the Jenner sisters has said that the sisters and Sloan discussed the novel during multiple Skype calls. This explains the differences in the success of the book. The novel is a YA book and is not a retelling of the events in the movie or TV show.
