The problem lies where the Magazine lists her as a "Self-Made billionaire"...

Forbes released an Instagram photo for the cover of the August 31 issue of the magazine yesterday, July 11.

Thanks to her Kylie Cosmetics make-up empire, the 20-year-old is estimated to be worth $900 million, landing the new mum at the number 27 on the magazine's yearly rich list.

According to Forbes, the businesswoman has in less than three years amassed a fortune of 900 million U.S. dollars (£680 million). "She grew up in a wealthy, famous family".

Kylie Jenner shocked her fans when she recently revealed she "got rid" of her lip fillers, and a source tells ET that the decision was influenced by her becoming a mom earlier this year to daughter Stormi.

In another tweet, she stated that if there should be someone celebrated for being "self-made", it should be Jenner's mother, Kris.

Explosion heard near Cairo airport, flights unaffected
Business Insider A massive explosion reportedly rocked the area near Cairo International Airport on Thursday evening. The cause of the detonation and fire at the fuel depot is unknown as of yet.

Dictionary.com is just keeping up with the facts. "Self-made means having succeeded in life unaided", its post stated yesterday, July 11.

"At 21, she's set to be the youngest-ever self-made billionaire", the cover reads.

Forbes tweeted the story on Wednesday with the hashtag #SelfMadeWomen, prompting questioned whether "self-made" is an accurate description of Jenner's fortune. Her success is commendable but it comes by virtue of her privilege.

The online dictionary's Twitter account even went as far as to give the link for the online definition of the word "self-made".

"What her half-sister Kim Kardashian West did for booty, Jenner has done for full lips", Natalie Robehmed wrote for Forbes.
