For someone aged just twenty-one, there's no denying Kylie Jenner has achieved a lot. She's the star of one of the longest-running and most successful reality television shows of all time, one of the most influential women on the planet, and even a mom to one-year-old Stormi. While many still see her as the youngest of the Kardashian gang, it's clear she's so much more.
Forbes has just released its list of billionaires and there's some surprising names. One of these being the youngest Kardashian who made history with her inclusion.
The Kardashian family are social media giants.

The family came to fame on a very popular reality show.Keeping Up with the Kardashians has been running since 2007, making it almost twelve years old. It's one of the most viewed reality TV phenomena of all time.
Kylie was nothing but a kid when the show started.

Not bad for the tender age of twenty one.Kylie has grown from being a fan favorite on the show, to a social media queen and entrepreneurial businesswoman.
She's the undisputed queen of Instagram.
On top of this, Jenner is also a mom.
Kylie has a truly multifaceted career.
Kylie Cosmetics is one of the most successful brands on the planet.
Last year, Forbes reported on her success.
The internet had a rather strange reaction.
Kylie Cosmetics really took after after launching in Ulta.

And it clearly paid off.

Although some weren't too thrilled with the news.Many see the sheer existence of billionaires as a failure of the system of capitalism - especially when many live in a state of constant worry about money.
Others had a different issue.Many quibbled with the "self-made" status of Kylie's fortune. It's certainly true that if she wasn't a member of the world's most famous family, it's unlikely she'd have made the Forbes list.
While it's true she's been clever with her line, some believe she'd be nothing without her status.

Fans congratulated Kylie online.Although we have to agree with this Twitter user - surely now she's worth a billion, Kylie can spare a few dollars for us?
We're sure Kylie isn't worried about the haters.And we're pretty sure we wouldn't be either, if we had a billion reasons not to care. It's clear Kylie is living her best life.
And for those who say she's famous just for being famous?
