Well ain’t this a blip!? The allegedly self-made Kylie Jenner isn’t as rich as her or her family have claimed.
After pouring over the receipts, Forbes, which hailed her as a billionaire in March 2019, has determined that Kim Kardashian’s sister isn’t worth as nearly as much as she claimed.
Besides gassing up her bank accounts, Forbes claims that Jenner went as far as forging tax returns to pull the jig. The timeline of sales provided by the Jenners just doesn’t add up.
More likely: The business was never that big to begin with, and the Jenners have lied about it every year since 2016—including having their accountant draft tax returns with false numbers—to help juice Forbes’ estimates of Kylie’s earnings and net worth. While we can’t prove that those documents were fake (though it’s likely), it’s clear that Kylie’s camp has been lying.
This passage from Forbes is particularly damning:
Of course white lies, omissions and outright fabrications are to be expected from the family that perfected—then monetized—the concept of “famous for being famous.” But, similar to Donald Trump’s decades-long obsession with his net worth, the unusual lengths to which the Jenners have been willing to go—including inviting Forbes into their mansions and CPA’s offices, and even creating tax returns that were likely forged—reveals just how desperate some of the ultra-rich are to look even richer.
But perhaps more revealing is the fact that she hopped on Twitter to stress that her pockets are swole while being extra quiet about Black people rioting throughout the U.S. Mind you, her kid with Travis Scott is most definitely Black, just saying.
It’s not like Twitter needed much motivation, but the slander has been immaculate. Peep the best of the best below

If Kylie Jenner was black she won't have been given the billionaire status because Forbes would go to very extreme lengths to investigate her real financial worth.— IRUNNIA ™ (@Irunnia_) May 29, 2020
Imagine spending all these months as a motivational speaker organizing seminars and talking about how Kylie Jenner became the world's youngest billionaire at the age of 21, just for Forbes to remove her from the list because she lied about her wealth.— Obi Of Onitsha🇨🇦 (@MrObi_) May 29, 2020

I’m sure Forbes thought they were doing something with their latest Kylie Jenner article but the only thing it did was just prove how NOT credible they are as an organisation to report on anyone’s earnings.— MPUMZ. (@mpumz_n) May 29, 2020
Forbes had jay z emptying every piggy bank and went through his numbers with needle-like precision before they called him a billionaire. they pushed back on Fenty and said they couldn’t verify her portioned ownership of Fenty Beauty regardless of what her actual paper work said..— vaun (@_Vaun) May 29, 2020
