Internet divided over Forbes cover of 'self-made' billionaire Kylie Jenner

SAN FRANCISCO, CA (KRON) - On Wednesday Forbes magazine announced Kylie Jenner landed the cover of the magazine's 2018 List of Richest Self-Made Women. 

According to Forbes, Jenner is poised to be the "youngest-ever self-made billionaire" thanks to her extremely successful cosmetics company, Kylie Cosmetics. 

Forbes estimates Jenner's company is worth nearly $800 million. 

She owns 100 percent of the company.

The $800 million doesn't factor in the millions the star has earned from TV programs and endorsing products, as well as $60 million in estimated after-tax dividends she's taken from her company. 

People were quick to pick a side and criticize and/or defend Jenner on social media. 

Even dictionary.com got in on the shade. 

 

 

 

 

Despite the naysayers, Jenner has had plenty of cheerleaders coming to her defense.
