A lot has been made of the 23-year-old star’s wealth after she launched her best-selling lip kits that turned into Kylie Cosmetics.
But the mother to Stormi Webster tried her best to deflate any attention she received over her fortune during part-one of the Keeping Up With The Kardashians reunion on Thursday evening.
Don’t talk to me about my money! Kylie Jenner deflated any attention on her about her billionaire status while on part one of the KUWTK reunion on Thursday
When host Andy Cohen said that she is the richest, Kylie shot back: ‘I don’t wake up and look at myself in the mirror, like, “Good morning self-made billionaire,”‘ she said, as Kim joked, ‘I do.’ Kylie added, ‘But yeah, it’s amazing.’
She said she got into makeup because of she was insecure about her lips. ‘I have really small lips and I didn’t ever think about it until I had one of my first kisses and a guy said to me, Oh my god, you’re such a good kisser but you have such small lips,’ she revealed. “From then on I felt un-kissable. I had an insecurity because this guy said something to me. Then I got this obsession with makeup because I would over-line my lips.”‘
And Cohen also opened his show by saying if he needed some money for his parking meter he would come to her, to which she barely smiled.
Kylie has a rocky past when it comes to her billionaire status.
In May 2020 the beauty slammed Forbes after it published a bombshell report accusing the Jenner family of inflating figures and ‘forging’ tax returns for the makeup mogul’s cosmetics company.

It appears the star was taken by surprise at the article, which claims Kylie Cosmetics is not doing as well as the Jenners want people to think – and that the Lip Kit creator is not actually a billionaire.
Forbes named Kylie the world’s youngest self-made billionaire in 2019 and again in 2020, and of her surprise over their latest article she wrote 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’
She followed up with a quote from the Forbes report that accused the Jenners and their accountant of producing false tax returns. ‘”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,’ Kylie tweeted incredulously.
Not easy: Kylie has a rocky past when it comes to her billionaire status. In May 2020 the beauty slammed Forbes after it published a bombshell report accusing the Jenner family of inflating figures and ‘forging’ tax returns for the makeup mogul’s cosmetics company. She denied it
She followed up with another post focusing on the positive, ‘but okay i am blessed beyond my years, i have a beautiful daughter, and a successful business and i’m doing perfectly fine.’
In a detailed report based on public financial disclosures, Forbes accused the family of creating a ‘web of lies’ and said Kylie had inflated the size of her business and success. The publication accused her of ‘lying about company figures and forging tax returns’ to be dubbed a billionaire.
Based on filings from beauty giant Coty, which acquired a 51 percent stake of Kylie’s makeup company in January 2020 at a valuation of $1.2 billion, Kylie Cosmetics generated revenues and profits that were far lower that the figures touted for years by the Jenner-Kardashian clan.

These shock claims come after Forbes put Kylie on the cover and hailed her the youngest self-made billionaire ever two years running. Forbes explained that it had been shown 2016 tax returns indicating revenue far higher than the numbers revealed by Coty’s filing, and that there were only two explanations: Kylie Cosmetics’ sales had utterly collapsed in the two years before the acquisition, or the tax returns were fabricated.
In 2020, Forbes claimed that their new calculations put Kylie’s personal fortune at just under $900million.
Earlier this year she was dropped off Forbes’ 35th annual billionaires list.
Also on the show the makeup mogul confessed that she was ‘not thinking’ about marriage ‘right now,’ to host Cohen, despite recently rekindling her romance with baby daddy Travis Scott.
The reality star also opened up about her very private pregnancy and even where things stand with ex-boyfriend Tyga, admitting they are ‘not friends’ anymore.

Jenner was asked ‘Do you think marriage is in the cards for you,’ which prompted her to briefly spill her thoughts.
‘I’m not thinking about marriage right now, but I would hope to get married one day,’ she coyly said with a smile.
And she continued to explain why the Houston-born rapper, 29, was not on the show very much, saying she ‘never pressured him,’ about it.
‘I don’t know,’ she said of his minimal presence. ‘I guess, sometimes, he didn’t want to be filmed. I never pressured him to be on the show.’

On again! The former pair confirmed they were back on on June 15 as they walked the red carpet together in NYC, before she posted an intimate snap of her wrapped in his arms
Reunion look: The reality star also talked about her very private pregnancy and dished on where things stand with ex Tyga
Kylie also spoke about that status of things with ex Tyga who also dated Rob Kardashian’s baby mama Blac Chyna.
‘We’re not friends, but we are okay. If I see him out, or if I run into him anywhere, you know, I always wish him well. I have no bad feelings towards him,’ she told Cohen.
She also dished on her decision to keep her pregnancy away from both the public and the show, saying that she had already ‘shared so much’ of her life and didn’t want to deal with others ‘opinions’ because she was only 19-years-old.
‘I shared so much of my life. I was also really young when I got pregnant. And it was just a lot for me, personally. I didn’t know how I would bring that to the public, too, and have, you know, everyone’s opinions. I think it was just something that I needed to go through by myself.’
No bad blood: ‘We’re not friends, but we are okay. If I see him out, or if I run into him anywhere, you know, I always wish him well. I have no bad feelings towards him,’ she told Cohen of Tyga

Her statements about marriage come after the cosmetics founder confirmed she and the Sicko Mode rapper had rekindled their romance with an Instagram post on June 15 and a red carpet appearance.
At the Parsons Benefit in NYC, the pair posed for photos alongside daughter Stormi, three, and in an award acceptance speech Scott gushed: ‘I love you wifey.’
A source told People that they were ‘very sweet and cute together,’ and held hands at the reception and that this time around there is a ‘different energy’ between the pair.
‘Although they always got along, there is a different energy between them now. Kylie and Travis are very close again. Kylie flew to NYC to support him. It’s just great to see them back together,’ an insider shared.

‘They never put any pressure on their relationship. The focus was always on being the best co-parents. They still keep separated homes in LA because this is what works for them,’ it was added.
The pair had sparked romance rumors over the last few months after they took a trip to his native Houston and even spent the day at Disneyland. She also flew to Miami to ring in his birthday at the end of April where they were seen getting handsy in the club.
Despite splitting in 2019, TMZ reported in May that the pair were in an ‘open relationship,’ which prompted Kylie to hit back about the ‘narrative’ on social media.
‘I’m not discrediting anyone who is in an open relationship but it’s just careless and disrespectful to throw this narrative out there without knowing what’s true,’ she said via Twitter at the time.
