Kim, who already defended Kylie about the Forbes matter earlier this month, once again spoke about that while at a charity poker game benefitting City of Hope National Medical Center at The Forum in Inglewood, California.

"You know, everyone has a team, I don’t care who you are," Kim shared with Entertainment Tonight. "But when you don’t get it from someone else, that's 'self-made.'"

"It’s not like that was handed to her," she continued. "She figured that all out. I mean, we all have."

Kim and Kylie's mother Kris was also on hand for the big poker tournament, where she spoke quite highly about them and her other children as well. "I’m proud of all of my kids because they really have an amazing work ethic and they roll their sleeves up and really do what they love to do so that makes me really happy," she shared. "They all find their passion. When that happens, it’s magical."

Kris also said that Kylie built her very successful beauty line with her own time and money, and deserves everything because of it. "She made her own money for over a decade, she put it in the bank, she saved every nickel," Kris recalled. "And then, when she decided  on what she wanted to do, she spent her money on a venture that could have gone south or north, and it did really well."
