Ms Jenner may have used her social media status to drive her company's advertising, but many on Twitter took exception to Forbes' definition of "self-made", claiming much of her success was dependent on her family's celebrity.

Jenner, whose net worth is estimated at one billion U.S. dollars (£761 million), has appeared on Forbes' billionaires list for the first time, ranked at number 2,057 overall. She added that the recognition "feels really good".

Kylie has overtaken Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, who previously held the title of youngest self-made billionaire from the age of 23.

At 21, she is both the youngest self-made billionaire and the youngest billionaire on Forbes" "young billionaires' list.

'That's a nice pat on the back, ' Jenner told Forbes. "But we can show them better than we could ever tell them I love you".

On Monday night, Khloe, Kylie, Kendall Jenner, and Kourtney Kardashian went to a roller rink to celebrate the birthday of Ky's friend and assistant, Victoria Villarroel.

Since launching with Jenner's famous Lip Kits, Kylie Cosmetics has expanded into eyeshadow, blush, concealer, highlighter and more, with the brand most recently debuting setting powder.

Flashback: Forbes announced a year ago that Jenner would likely take over the title.

Forbes put 2,153 billionaires on its 2019 list, down from 2,208 in 2018, and said their total combined net worth was $8.7 trillion, down from $9.1 trillion in 2018. "I'm a rollercoaster of emotions & have said things I shouldn't have", the reality star wrote. She mostly runs the company using her iPhone, and if you follow her on Instagram, you will notice that she regularly promote new products from the company.

According to an ET source on Tuesday, the two "aren't getting back together", and the KUWTK starlet "knows she needs to move on".
