Kylie Jenner has topped the list of Forbes of the world‘s highest paid celebrities, who earned an impressive fortune of US $ 6.1 billion combined in the last year.
According to the publication, the founder of Kylie Cosmetics It was the highest-earning in 2020 with a fortune of US $ 590 million to its name.
This was mainly due to the sale of a 51% stake of his beauty empire to Coty for $ 600 million earlier this year, increasing his personal fortune by $ 540 million.
Kylie’s other earnings were likely generated from sales of Kylie Cosmetics, deals from patronage and appearances in reality show of his family Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
The news comes after Forbes drastically revoked Kylie’s status as a billionaire in May, claiming that the 23-year-old exaggerated the value of her company. In an article with the headline “Kylie’s Web of Lies,” the publication accused Kylie of “creating tax returns that were likely falsified.”
Kylie, who was named the youngest billionaire in 2019, responded to the scathing report and tweeted: “What am I waking up to? I thought [Forbes] it was a reputable site … all i see is a series of inaccurate statements and unverified assumptions hahaha (…) I never asked for any titles or EVER tried to fool them. Point.
