Kylie Jenner is known for her incredible wealth and was at one point named the world's youngest ever billionaire. The 25-year-old beauty entrepreneur rose to fame via her family's reality TV show Keeping up with the Kardashians, and then continued to shine on related shows such as Kourtney and Khloe take Miami, Life of Kylie, and most recently, The Kardashians.
The TV star is also a social media sensation, with over 388m followers on Instagram and 52.4m on TikTok. Kylie is also a mom to two children with her on-again-off-again partner of several years Travis Scott. But just how much is Kylie worth today, and how did the pop culture icon come to make her fortune? HELLO! finds out...
How much is Kylie Jenner worth in 2023?
According to Forbes, Kylie's net worth currently stands at around $600million (around £480million). In March 2019, the magazine reported that she had become the "youngest self-made billionaire," believing she had been able to make this vast amount of money through her 100% ownership of Kylie Cosmetics.
However, in 2020, after Kylie sold 51% of Kylie Cosmetics to Coty, the business magazine later took back its claim that Kylie had reached billionaire status. "Filings released by publicly traded Coty over the past six months lay bare one of the family’s best-kept secrets: Kylie’s business is significantly smaller, and less profitable, than the family has spent years leading the cosmetics industry and media outlets, including Forbes, to believe," the magazine reported.
Following the article's publication, Kylie and Kris Jenner's representatives hit back with a statement which Forbes quoted on its website as saying: "The accusations that the Jenners, and/or their accountants, falsified tax returns and then lied about their 2016 revenues for the last four years, are absolutely false." Whatever the exact number of Kylie Jenner's fortune, no doubt surrounds the fact that it is an impressive number, however.
How much does Kylie Jenner earn per month?
Due to the nature of Kylie Jenner's work as a reality TV star, businesswoman and influencer, it is difficult to estimate exactly how much the 25-year-old makes each month. For certain, the number likely varies quite a bit, but her per-month fortune likely averages somewhere between $20-50million.
What is Kylie Jenner's job?
As well as being a TV star and popular figure on social media, Kylie is a businesswoman and has had many lucrative ventures over the last few years. In 2015, the successful socialite launched a hugely popular Topshop fashion line with her sister Kendall Jenner. She has also fronted campaigns for big brands such as Calvin Klein, Beats and Adidas.
Following her successful clothing range at Topshop, in August 2015 the then-teenager announced that she would be launching her first lipstick line as part of her new company Kylie Lip Kit. This name was then changed to Kylie Cosmetics, which expanded its product range and became hugely popular, in February 2016.
Kylie also makes money through advertising products through sponsored posts on her social media. In 2019, news that she was making over $1.2million per sponsored Instagram post practically broke the internet, as the young star immediately became recognised as one the highest paid individual influencers on the platform.
Of course, in addition to moneymaking, Kylie is also a dedicated mom to her two children with rapper Travis Scott. Both their five-year-old daughter Stormi and one-year-old son Aire regularly make appearances alongside their mom in posts on her lucrative social media accounts.
How is Kylie so rich?
As the daughter of Olympic champion Caitlyn Jenner and TV personality Kris Jenner, Kylie was born into quite a bit of money. However, when Kylie was around nine years old, after her family became famous from starring in the reality TV show Keeping Up with the Kardashians everything changed.
Since that show's first success in 2007, Kylie's profile has been raised thanks to it and its spin-offs' continued popularity, the business opportunities which have come from it and the huge social media following she has succeeded to gain from capitalizing on the interest shown into her life.
In February 2018, Kylie's photo of her baby daughter became the 'most liked' Instagram post ever. And while that record has now been surpassed, the star undoubtedly continues to know how to best use her popularity with the public in business, on TV, and on social media.
