On Tuesday, the 21-year-old showed up on Forbes’ Wealthiest Celebrities in America list, arriving at No. 5 with total assets of $900 million. In spite of the fact that Jenner has her hands in everything from reality television to major endorsement deals, a large portion of her cash originates from Kylie Cosmetics—a super successful beauty line that she has 100% ownership.

Kylie, who is anticipated to become “the youngest ‘self-made’ billionaire,” says platforms like Instagram plays a huge role in her success.


“Social media is an amazing platform,” Jenner told Forbes. “I have such easy access to my fans and my customers.”

Kylie Jenner shares the No. 5 opening with JAY-Z, whose net worth grew by $90 million in the recent year. Forbes credits the flood to Hov’s deals with companies like Armand de Brignac champagne and D’Ussé cognac, as well as his stakes in Roc Nation and Tidal.

George Lucas leads the pack with $5.4 billion. Steven Spielberg takes the No. 2 position ($3.7 billion); Oprah Winfrey comes in at No. 3 ($2.8 billion); and Michael Jordan pursues with $1.7 billion.

Adjusting the main 10 are David Copperfield (No. 7, $875 million), Diddy (No. 8, $825 million), and Tiger Woods and James Patterson, who tied at the No. 9 position with $800 million each.

As per Forbes, the 10 wealthiest American big names in 2018 have a consolidated worth of $18.7 billion.
