"Not a Dime in My Bank Account Is Inherited" — Kylie Jenner Defends "Self-Made" Claims in New Interview

“There’s really no other word to use other than self-made because that is the truth.”

Kylie Jenner is the cover star of Interview Germany’s first Spring/Summer 2019 issue. The beauty mogul posed in Dolce & Gabbana and Iris Van Herpen for the inaugural photo spread. For the SS19 interview she delves into her motherhood, makeup and her controversial status as America’s youngest “self-made” billionaire, an accolade given to her by Forbes. When asked about the “self-made” claim she defends her position and insists that her fortune is entirely self-produced:

Kylie Cosmetics has officially turned you into a beauty billionaire, and the youngest self-made billionaire in history. How does that feel?

KJ: I never thought that this could happen. I believed in Kylie Cosmetics but I didn’t even know what I was getting myself into. It feels amazing, it’s wild, and being the youngest ever to do it is a blessing. I now want to focus on giving back to people and doing things that I’m passionate about.

A lot of people feel like the term “self-made” is not 100% accurate in your case…

KJ: There’s really no other word to use other than self-made because that is the truth. That is the category that I fall under. Although, I am a special case because before I started Kylie Cosmetics, I had a huge platform and lots of fans. I did not get money from my parents past the age of 15. I used 100% of my own money to start the company, not a dime in my bank account is inherited… and I am very proud of that.

Jenner goes on to tease her upcoming ventures and shares her thoughts on social media. Read the full feature at Interview and preview her editorial below.
