Kylie Jenner may be the youngest member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, but she’s certainly carved out her own path since October 2007, when Keeping Up With the Kardashians premiered on E!
No longer known simply as the daughter of
Kris and Caitlyn Jenner or the little sister of Kourtney, Khloé, Kim and Kendall, Kylie is a serious force to be reckoned with in her own right.
In March 2019, she became the world’s youngest “self-made billionaire”
thanks to her uber-successful business ventures in makeup, with Kylie Cosmetics, and fashion, with Kendall + Kylie. (Although Forbes later revoked the title, estimating in May 2020 that she is actually worth just under $900 million.)
Further cementing Kylie’s place in history is her own spinoff series on E!,
Life of Kylie, and her undeniable social media footprint. Kylie boasted more than 140 million followers on Instagram alone in August 2019, and as of July 2019, the multihyphenate was taking in a whopping $1.2 million per Instagram post.
The businesswoman has also managed to captivate the world with her personal life. Kylie has kept tongues wagging with high-profile relationships with rapper
Tyga, whom she dated on-and-off from 2015 to 2017, and Travis Scott, whom she began dating in April of 2017. She went on to welcome her first child, daughter, Stormi Webster, with Scott in February 2018. They split in October 2019.
Prior to becoming a mom, she also had the world guessing about her pregnancy status, keeping mum even after
Us Weekly confirmed her big news in September 2017.

Intro to the Spotlight
At just 9 years old, Kylie became a household name after being thrust into the spotlight with the premiere of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. The family celebrated the show’s 16th season in March 2019.

Kylie began a romance in March 2013 with Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith’s son Jaden, but the pair had cooled off by December. “I don’t have a boyfriend, but I do really want that boyfriend prom experience,” she told Seventeen Prom at the time. “If I couldn’t find a boyfriend, I would want to go with one of my best guy friends, like Jaden. I know I’d have fun with him – he makes me laugh and he is a great dancer.”
2013 was a big year for Kylie: She got her start in fashion alongside big sis Kendall when the two collaborated with PacSun for their first clothing line.
Kylie’s family and friends threw her a lavish sixteenth birthday party at Nobu in Malibu. In attendance at the bash were famous faces such as Kylie’s ex Jaden, , Tyga, Hailee Steinfeld Naya Rivera and Hailey Baldwin. Drake, Big Sean and also performed at the celebration.
Just 18 days after her 16th birthday, the teenage Kylie crashed her Mercedes Benz in a three-car collision in Calabasas, California. Kylie kept her cool, however, with TMZ reporting that she apologized, asked those involved if they were OK and exchanged information.
Deny, Deny, Deny
Kylie addressed her altered appearance multiple times in 2014. “These plastic surgery rumors hurt my feelings to be honest and are kinda insulting,” she tweeted in April. She also addressed her larger lips in October, telling Twitter followers, “How long are we gonna talk about this lip thing lmao. Let’s get a our lives together guys and talk about some important s–t. Just talk about something new at least. I’m bored.”
Kylie made waves when she began dating then-25-year-old Tyga at just 17. Brother-in-law Kanye West confirmed the pair’s relationship in February 2015, telling Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club, “I think [Tyga] got in early. I think he was smart.”
A new boyfriend wasn’t the only change in the model’s life that year: She also purchased her first $2.7 million home in May of that year.

The Truth Will Set You Free
After more than a year of speculation, the businesswoman finally copped to lip injections in a May 2015 episode of KUWTK. “I have temporary lip fillers, it’s just an insecurity of mine and it’s what I wanted to do,” she said.

Kylie revealed in an interview in June 2015 that she was taking care of her own expenses. “My mom cut me off financially three years ago,” she said. “I pay for everything — my car, my gas, and food, as well as my clothes.”
The reality star completed high school in July 2015 and encouraged her fans to do the same. “I finished school last week,” she tweeted at the time. “I know I never post on social media when I’m in class but that doesn’t mean I don’t encourage education! Because I do!”
After dad Caitlyn came out as a transgender woman, t he entrepreneur admitted she had known about her secret for years. “I mean, obviously I knew about it my whole life, but it was never admitted to and then it was all said and done,” she told Wonderland magazine in February 2016. “I honestly just wanted to not be lied to. I just wanted honesty and no secrets.”

Us confirmed in October 2019 that Kylie and Scott called it quits. “Travis and I are on great terms and our main focus right now is Stormi,” she tweeted at the time. “Our friendship and our daughter is our priority.”
In May 2020, Forbes revoked Kylie’s billionaire status, alleging that the makeup mogul and members of her team lied about sales and forged tax returns to “look even richer.” Forbes estimated that Kylie’s personal fortune is actually just under $900 million, with more than a third of her earnings coming from selling 51 percent of Kylie Cosmetics to Coty in 2019. She disputed the “Inside Kylie Jenner’s Web of Lies” report, tweeting, “I’ve never asked for any title or tried to lie my way there EVER. period.”
