Kim says she and her sisters never depended on their wealthy parents for "anything besides advice."
Kim Kardashian has come to Kylie Jenner's defense after a recent article in Forbes faced backlash when readers took issue with its claim that Kylie is on her way to becoming the youngest "self-made" billionaire. The "billionaire" part was not the issue, as the numbers are indisputable, but the categorization of Kylie as "self-made," considering the money and fame she was born into as a member of the Kardashian empire, has many questioning the accuracy of the title. Kim Kardashian, however, is sure that Kylie is self-made, along with the rest of the family, as she said in an interview with Refinery29.
"I really didn’t get it, because she is 'self-made' — we are all 'self-made,'" she said. "What, because we came from a family that has had success? To me, that doesn’t really make sense... I know so many people like that [who] haven’t turned out to be as successful as Kylie. If anything, I've seen the complete opposite."
According to Kim, she and her sisters did not depend on their wealthy parents for "anything besides advice." "That’s how I lived my life with my dad [Robert Kardashian]. He never gave me anything. We might have the opportunity, but I’ve seen it go the complete opposite way. Nobody works harder than my sisters and my mom," she said.
It seems hard to believe that Kim's comments will silence Kylie's critics, but it seems they won't stop Kylie from hitting a billion off her makeup line. In fact, a facetious GoFundMe has been opened to help her get there.
