Kylie Jenner fires back at Forbes after her billionaire crown slips off

Earlier today, Forbes posted an article that claimed that despite selling the majority half of Kylie Cosmetics last November for $600 million and placing her company's wealth at $1.2 billion, the youngest Jenner member has apparently been inflating the size and success of her business for years.

Forbes recently took away Kylie's title of the youngest self-made billionaire. The magazine also projected that the reality star's net worth is just under USD$900 million.

Kylie Jenner addressed Forbes claims that she "lied" about her billionaire status on Twitter.

Meanwhile, the 22-year-old is denying all claims Forbes is making, with her attorney Michael Kump stating the "article is filled with outright lies". "Period", she shared with her followers. "I am blessed beyond my years, I have a handsome daughter, and a successful business and i'm doing perfectly fine", she said.

Kylie Jenner tweeted, "What am I even waking as much as".

Ms Jenner debuted Kylie Cosmetics in 2016 with $US29 lip kits containing matching lipstick and lip liner.

Another demonstrator, whose mask read "I can't breathe", said: "We need to be treated just as fairly as anybody else". The governor said state Attorney General Letitia James will investigate actions by both NYPD officers and protesters.

The article also accused Jenner and her family of forging tax documents, adding to their extensive "web of lies" to further inflate Kylie Cosmetics.

What do you concentrate on the report and the information that Kylie Jenner was kicked off of Forbes' checklist of billionaires? Keep sharing, keep watching, keep speaking out, because it's the only way we can come together to help bring this much needed change and awareness.

Yesterday, a surprisingly blunt report by the extremely credited publication uncovered the younger mogul for colluding together with her staff to forge paperwork (i.e tax returns) to make her the youngest "self-made" billionaire.

Forbes spokesman Matthew Hutchison issued a staunch defence of its investigation into "newly filed documents that revealed glaring discrepancies between information privately supplied to journalists and information publicly supplied to shareholders". Kylie then asked the magazine's credibility when they say the tax returns were forged. "Our reporters spotted the inaccuracies and spent months uncovering the facts".

She said "speaking up is long overdue" and the public can't sit back and ignore that racism is one of the two "horrific pandemics" the USA is now facing. Still pretty good if you ask us.
