Last week, Forbes proclaimed Kylie Jenner, 20, was on track to become the youngest self-made billionaire. But critics quickly pounced saying Kylie rode the wave of success paved by the Kardashian reality show dynasty.
“We Never Depended On Our Parents For Anything Besides Advice… We Are All Self-made”, Kim Kardashian Defends Kylie’s Forbes Cover.
‘I really didn’t get it, because she is ‘self-made’ — we are all self-made,’ Kim said in a phone interview with Refinery29.
An emphatic Kim added, ‘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.’
‘Me, Kylie, not one [of the siblings] has ever depended on our parents for anything besides advice,’ Kim stressed in the interview. ‘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.’
