Kylie Jenner has slammed Forbes magazine editors for revoking her billionaire status and accusing her of lying about her wealth.
The publication’s bosses dropped an article, entitled ‘Inside Kylie Jenner’s Web of Lies and Why She’s No Longer a Billionaire’ on Friday (May 29, 2020), and suggested the reality TV star and make-up mogul had doctored tax documents for her Kylie Cosmetics company to swindle herself onto the title’s famous Forbes Billionaires list.
Kylie, who was dubbed the world’s youngest “self-made” billionaire by the magazine in March 2019, has denied the claims, taking to social media to defend herself.
Fuming on Twitter, the 22-year-old wrote: “what am i even waking up to. i thought this was a reputable site… all i see are a number of inaccurate statements and unproven assumptions lol (laughing out loud). i’ve never asked for any title or tried to lie my way there EVER. period.”
Keeping Up with the Kardashians star Kylie went on to insist she never collaborated with her manager mom Kris Jenner and her accounts to create fake tax returns to submit to Forbes, as suggested in the piece.
“‘even creating tax returns that were likely forged’ that’s your proof? so you just THOUGHT they were forged? like actually what am i reading,” she continued. “but okay i am blessed beyond my years, i have a beautiful daughter, and a successful business and i’m doing perfectly fine. i can name a list of 100 things more important right now than fixating on how much money i have.”
Forbes editors insist Kylie is worth, in reality, under $900 million.
