  • Kylie Jenner has slammed Forbes after they took away her billionaire status.
  • Forbes claimed that the lip kit mogul "inflated" figures about her business, including her Kylie Cosmetics brand.
  • Kylie took to Twitter saying: "I've never asked for any title or tried to lie my way there." 

22-year-old lip kit mogul Kylie Jenner was given the title of "youngest self-made billionaire" by Forbes in 2018.

The title has since been removed as Forbes now claims she "inflated" figures about her business including her Kylie Cosmetics brand.

On hearing the news, she fumed on Twitter: "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. i've never asked for any title or tried to lie my way there EVER. period ... '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 .. but okay ... i am blessed beyond my years, i have a beautiful daughter, and a successful business and i'm doing perfectly fine. [sic]"

And when some fans slammed Kylie for complaining amid a global pandemic, she said that it was the "last thing" she was worried about at this current moment.

She added: "i can name a list of 100 things more important right now than fixating on how much money i have ... this is literally the LAST thing i'm worried about right now. [sic]
