Forbes has just named Kylie Jenner the youngest self-made billionaire ever, but not everyone is so sure of her "self-made" status. swooped in and shared its definition of what being self-made means, and Jenner's qualifications fall rather short. 

Jenner claims she was cut off financially by her parents at 15, but she's had a strong social media following and the influence of the Kardashian/Jenner name for almost her entire life. When this same situation happened last year, Forbes quickly defended itself by sharing its own definition of the term.

Kylie Jenner has just been named the youngest self-made billionaire ever. 

Forbes reported that Jenner is the youngest self-made billionaire ever. At 21 years old, she beat out Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, who was 23 when he made his first billion. Jenner told Forbes that she "didn't expect anything. I did not foresee the future. But [the recognition] feels really good. That’s a nice pat on the back.”

But doesn't agree with the "self-made" part of that title. retweeted Forbes and gave them its hard definition of the term "self-made." According to the website, being self-made means "having succeeded in life unaided." When we think of any member of the Kardashian/Jenner family, the last word that comes to mind is "self-made." 

If you ask just about anyone on the internet, they'll still tell you the family's relevance is directly tied to Kim Kardashian's infamous sex tape. And that popularity was only carried on because Kris Jenner was working her managerial magic behind the scenes. 

Even Kim had to start somewhere. She grew up with money and notoriety, too, because of her father's successful career as a lawyer. He was one of OJ Simpson's lawyers during his murder trial. His net worth was estimated at $30 million at the time of his death in 2003. 

Even a boujee hotel had to chime in and agree with on this one.

The Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles is an exclusive boutique hotel — its suites start at $2,500 a night. It claimed that Jenner and her family have been staying there "regularly" since she was seven. 

"Our suites start at $2,500 a night. I don’t think anyone who has stayed here regularly since they were 7 could be considered 'self-made,'" the hotel shared. A follow-up tweet stated that the hotel's "boss" said the Kardashian/Jenner family spends "a s**t ton" of money there.

Kylie Cosmetics is certainly a successful business. 

None of this is to say that Kylie Jenner didn't do anything on her own or that every single thing she's done can't be credited to her. Kylie Cosmetics is wildly popular and has amassed $900 million in its first three years. According to Forbes, the company earned an estimated $330 million in 2017 alone. 

All that success aside, Kylie Jenner did get a hefty head start in life.

Not every business owner begins life with a famous family name and fortune to help them out. Jenner has been featured on her family's reality show Keeping Up With the Kardashians since she was a kid. She had an audience watching her and everything she did long before she launched her makeup line. So when she did release her first Lip Kits, she already had eager fans willing to invest in her products. 

Plus, the exposure from the show gave her exposure for her makeup line over time. Think of how many business owners would love to have that kind of audience at the very beginning of their careers. has had this disagreement with Forbes before.

Back in July of last year, tweeted at Forbes about this same issue. Forbes tweeted the cover of its August 2018 issue featuring Jenner on the cover. The tweet included the hashtag #SelfMadeWoman — responded once again with its definition of "self-made."

The problem is that Forbes has its own definition of "self-made."

Forbes responded to the backlash for calling Jenner self-made last year by publishing an explanation of what being self-made means. While focuses on "unaided" wealthiness, Forbes defines a self-made person as "someone who built a company or established a fortune on her own rather than inheriting some or all of it."

Forbes also shared a ranking system it uses to track how self-made billionaires made their way. "Based on that scale, someone who inherited everything scores a 1, while someone who not only grew up poor but also experienced substantial hardships — like Oprah Winfrey — scores a 10," Forbes explained. "Kylie Jenner, who comes from a wealthy family and who has leveraged her fame to her advantage, ranks a 7."

Jenner said she got financially cut off by her parents at 15 years old.

In her interview with Paper magazine last month, Jenner said that she was cut off at the age of 15. She said her parents "told her to start making her own way" and claims she hasn't gotten a "single cent" from them since.

"My parents told me I needed to make my own money, it's time to learn how to save and spend your own money, stuff like that," she told Paper. "What I'm trying to say is I did have a platform, but none of my money is inherited."

Still, the internet doesn't think Jenner should be considered truly self-made.

Jenner didn't exactly start at the bottom and build herself up. She had clear advantages from a young age that others don't have, but Jenner isn't denying that. For a lot of people, though, "self-made" implies that she started from the bottom. 

Nevertheless, fans were quick to defend Jenner's success. 

She has connections, yes, but she used those connections to make a path for herself that allowed her to be self-sustaining. And at the end of the day, that's pretty impressive in its own way.
