Kim Kardashian Defends Kylie Jenner Amid 'Forbes' Cover Backlash
Kim Kardashian jumped to her sister Kylie Jenner's defense when asked about the backlash over her recent Forbes cover that claimed the beauty mogul was "self-made." Read on to see what she had to say.
Kim said she really "didn’t get” the backlash because Kylie is "self-made."
Forbes declared Kylie “the youngest-ever self-made billionaire” at 20 years old on its most recent cover — Kylie's makeup line is worth close to a billion dollars. Kim explained that she's proud of her sister for taking "an insecurity of hers and figuring out how to make a really successful business off of it.”
Kim continued, "We are all 'self-made.' What, because we came from a family that has had success? To me, that doesn’t really make sense… I know so many people like that who haven’t turned out to be as successful as Kylie. If anything, I’ve seen the complete opposite."
"Me, Kylie, not one of the KarJenner siblings has ever depended on our parents for anything besides advice," the KKW Beauty founder said.
Kim concluded by saying, "That’s how I lived my life with my dad Robert Kardashian. He never gave me anything. We might have the opportunity, but I’ve seen it go the complete opposite way. Nobody works harder than my sisters and my mom."
