Reality television star and wealthy makeup entrepreneur Kylie Jenner slammed a recent claim made suggesting that she faked her billionaire status.

The media mogul is calling out an online article “Inside Kylie Jenner’s Web of Lies and Why She’s No Longer a Billionaire,” based on their recent claims.

Report suggests Kylie is not a billionaire

Last March, Kylie Jenner was called the world’s youngest “self-made” billionaire by Forbes magazine. That was based on her successful makeup brand Kylie Cosmetics.

However, now the magazine is claiming that Jenner is worth less than a billion and that she faked her way to get the status in the magazine.

Forbes now claims that Jenner was faking tax documents to get into the Forbes Billionaires list. The report alleges it was a collaboration involving Kylie and her mother Kris Jenner.

The allegations came about following a sale of 51 percent of Kylie Cosmetics to Coty for $1.2 billion in November 2019. Since then, Forbes says publicly-available filings from Coty over the past six months suggest Kylie’s company was worth less than initially thought.

Forbes goes on to say that after revising their estimates, Jenner’s fortune is “just under $900 million,” so she’s a bit shy of the billionaire status, in Forbes’ estimation.

Kylie Jenner responds to claims

The 22-year-old makeup mogul took to her Twitter on Friday to defend herself against the magazine’s report. Jenner posted several tweets, seemingly ticked off about what Forbes had to say.

In her first several tweets, Kylie slammed Forbes saying, “I thought this was a reputable site.. all I see are a number of inaccurate statements and unproven assumptions lol i’ve never asked for any title or tried to lie my way there EVER. period.”

While Kylie seemed to be upset with the magazine’s claims about her, she also tweeted about what is most important in her estimation. “I am blessed beyond my years, i have a beautiful daughter, and successful business and i’m doing perfectly fine,” Jenner tweeted.

Jenner added in a follow-up tweet: “i can name a list of 100 things more important right now than fixating on how much money i have.”

Kylie also responded to at least one Twitter commenter who asked her if that was what she’s worried about right now in the world.

Jenner replied to the tweet, saying, “this is literally the LAST thing i’m worried about right now.”
