Kylie Jenner becomes world’s youngest billionaire

Kylie Jenner has become the world’s youngest self-made billionaire.

The reality TV star, 21, reached the milestone earlier than Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg who became a billionaire aged 23.

The youngest Kardashian family member made her fortune from her best-selling cosmetics business.

She founded and owns Kylie Cosmetics, which was founded in 2015 and is now estimated to be worth a staggering $800 million.

Kylie admitted topping the young billionaires list ‘feels really good’.

She added: ‘I didn’t expect anything. I did not foresee the future. But the recognition feels really good.

‘That’s a nice pat on the back.’

The list shows Amazon founder Jeff Bezos remains the world’s richest man.

His fortune totals $131bn, according to Forbes, up $19bn from 2018.

Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg’s wealth is among those falling.

It has dropped by $8.7bn in the past year to $62bn, according to the Forbes list.
