Kylie Jenner responds to Forbes' claim she lied about 'billionaire' status, plus more news

Wonderwall Logo By Wonderwall.com Editors of Wonderwall | Slide 1 of 10: In a sudden pivot from the 2019 cover story in which Forbes declared Kylie Jenner to be the world's youngest self-made billionaire, the magazine declared on Friday, May 29, that Kylie had exaggerated the size and value of her company "for years." The piece, "Kylie Jenners Web of Lies -- and Why She's No Longer a Billionaire," may not have had quite the impact Forbes' editorial team was hoping for, though. Twitter users shamed the magazine for spending any energy on the contents of a makeup entrepreneur and reality star's bank account given this week's conflagration of protests of George Floyd's killing, general political divisiveness and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The Daily Beast published a response entitled, "Kylie Jenner is Not a Billionaire, Who Honestly Gives a S---?' Even Kylie seemed confused by the take-down, tweeting, "i can name a list of 100 things more important right now than fixating on how much money i have." That post, of course, only came after some slightly more dramatic tweets. "What am i even waking up to. i thought this was a reputable site.. all i see are a number of inaccurate statements and unproven assumptions lol. i've never asked for any title or tried to lie my way there EVER. period," she wrote."'Even creating tax returns that were likely forged' that's your proof? so you just THOUGHT they were forged? like actually what am i reading," she added. She later acknowledged that she's "blessed" to have "a beautiful daughter" and "successful business." A lawyer for the star has since told Fox News Kylie's camp has demanded Forbes retract its claims that she forged her tax returns.
