Last week, Forbes Magazine wrote that Kylie Jenner was on her way to becoming the youngest ‘self made’ billionaire in history.
The ‘self made’ title raised many eyebrows from both fans and the usually disinterested, sparking debates as to whether she really fits the category, as she launched her business off of an already mammoth platform.
Now, sister Kim has defended Kylie’s title in a new interview with Refinery 29.
“I really didn’t get it, because she is 'self-made' — we are all self-made," she said of the backlash.
"What, because we came from a family that has had success? To me, that doesn’t really make sense... I know so many people like that [who] haven’t turned out to be as successful as Kylie. If anything, I've seen the complete opposite."
"Me, Kylie, not one [of the siblings] has ever depended on our parents for anything besides advice," she explained.
"That’s how I lived my life with my dad [Robert Kardashian]. He never gave me anything. We might have the opportunity, but I’ve seen it go the complete opposite way. Nobody works harder than my sisters and my mom."
Like a good big sister, she also said she was very proud of Kylie for taking an “insecurity of hers and [figuring] out how to make a really successful business off of it.”
