Jenner’s influence in popular culture has been significant since the mid-2010s.

Time magazine recognized the Jenner sisters as influential teens in the world in both 2014 and 2015, acknowledging their substantial impact on social media among young people.

In 2017, Jenner became the youngest person to be featured on Forbes Celebrity 100 list. She also starred in her own spin-off series called Life of Kylie, which premiered in 2017.

However, Jenner’s wealth and its coverage in Forbes have sparked controversy.

In 2019, Forbes estimated her net worth at $1 billion, declaring her the world’s youngest self-made billionaire at the age of 21.

The notion of Jenner being self-made has been a subject of debate. In May 2020, Forbes released a statement accusing Jenner of falsifying tax documents to present herself as a billionaire.

Early Life

Kylie Kristen Jenner was born in Los Angeles, California on August 10, 1997.

She is the youngest daughter of former Olympic decathlete champion Caitlyn Jenner (formerly known as Bruce Jenner) and television personality and businesswoman Kris Jenner (formerly Houghton).

Jenner has Dutch, English, Irish, and Scottish ancestry from both sides of her family, with some Welsh ancestry from her father’s side.

She has an older sister, Kendall, and eight older half-siblings. From Caitlyn’s side, she has three older half-brothers – Burt, Brandon, and Brody Jenner – and one older half-sister Cassandra Marino.

From Kris’ side, Jenner has three older half-sisters – Kourtney, Kim, Khloé – and one older half-brother Rob Kardashian. Her parents divorced in 2015, before her father’s transition.

Jenner attended Sierra Canyon School, where she was a member of the cheerleading team.

She claims to have participated in school plays and community plays.

In 2012, she started homeschooling and joined an at-home education program, graduating with a high school diploma in July 2015 from Laurel Springs School in Ojai, California.

Career

In 2007, Jenner, together with her parents and siblings Kendall, Kourtney, Kim, Khloé, and Rob, made their debut on the reality television series Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

This show follows the personal and professional lives of their family members and has been a success for the network E!.

It has also led to the creation of several spin-offs, such as Kourtney and Kim Take Miami, Khloé & Lamar, Kourtney and Kim Take New York, and Kourtney and Khloé Take The Hamptons.

Jenner has made multiple guest appearances on these spin-offs.

In August 2011, the sisters hosted Glee: The 3D Concert Movie at the Regency Village Theater in Westwood, Los Angeles.

They were also recognized as Style Stars of the Year by Seventeen magazine in 2011 and were chosen as “Style Ambassadors” for the magazine.

In February 2012, they hosted the premiere of The Vow in Hollywood.

Additionally, the Jenners interviewed the cast of The Hunger Games premiere at The Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles in March 2012.

Later in 2012, Jenner appeared alongside her sister Kendall and mother Kris Jenner in an episode of the American reality television series America’s Next Top Model.

The Jenner sisters jointly hosted the 2014 Much Music Video Awards, during which Kylie made her acting debut in a promotional video for the event in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, in June 2014.

In August of the same year, the Jenner sisters were featured in singer PartyNextDoor’s music video for “Recognize”.

Additionally, Kylie appeared in Jaden Smith’s music video for his track “Blue Ocean”. Together, Jenner and her sister Kendall wrote the dystopian science fiction novel Rebels: City of Indra: The Story of Lex and Livia.

The story followed twin girls, Lex and Livia, in a self-sustaining biosphere called Indra, constructed from the remnants of Earth.

The novel faced criticism upon its release for being ghostwritten, prompting the actual ghostwriter, Maya Sloan, to disclose that while the Jenner sisters provided a two-page outline for the book, Sloan was responsible for the writing.

However, the Jenners’ creative director, Elizabeth Killmond-Roman, clarified that they had multiple Skype and FaceTime conversations with Sloan to discuss the novel’s content.

Despite this, the book received negative reviews and only sold 13,000 copies in its initial four months on the market. A sequel titled Time of the Twins was later released, co-authored by the Jenner sisters.

In February of 2016, Jenner’s beauty company underwent a name change to Kylie Cosmetics, and the quantity of kits manufactured increased from an initial 15,000 to 500,000.

Jenner unveiled a three-minute promotional video for a line of lip glosses in March 2016, directed by Colin Tilley and featuring fellow models Karin Jinsui, Mara Teigen, and Jasmine Sanders.

The soundtrack for the video was identified as “Three Strikes” by Terror Jr, a group formed on the same day as the video’s release; however, the lead vocalist, later revealed to be singer Lisa Vatale, was widely rumored to be Jenner herself.

Nevertheless, Jenner later refuted any connection to the band. In May 2016, she made her musical debut by rapping on producer Burberry Perry’s track “Beautiful Day”, alongside Lil Yachty, Jordyn Woods, and Justine Skye.

The following month, Jenner appeared in another music video for PartyNextDoor’s song “Come and See Me”.

In April 2017, she surprised attendees at the Rio Americano High School prom in Sacramento by accompanying junior Albert Ochoa after learning that his original date had declined.

In June 2017, Jenner was ranked 59th on the Forbes Celebrity 100 list, which ranks the highest-earning celebrities of the past year, having earned around $41,000,000, making her the youngest individual on the list at 19 years old.

In 2020, Jenner and her family revealed the end of their long-running reality show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians, after twenty seasons and nearly 15 years on television.

In August 2021, Jenner introduced Kylie Swim, a new swimwear line catering to women of all sizes. The official launch took place on September 17, 2021, on Kylie Jenner’s website.

However, the brand faced criticism on social media for its perceived poor quality and impracticality, with some suggesting that the products were only suitable for Instagram photos.

Subsequently, on September 21, Jenner announced the launch of a new skincare and hair product line for babies, named Kylie Baby.

By January 2022, Jenner made history by becoming the first woman to reach 300 million followers on Instagram, surpassing the previous record held by singer Ariana Grande.

In April 2022, Jenner and her family made a comeback to television with their new reality show, The Kardashians, after departing from the E! Network to join Hulu.

The show features Jenner, her sisters Kourtney, Kim, Khloe, and Kendall, as well as their mother Kris Jenner.

It also includes appearances from ex and current partners such as Scott Disick, Travis Barker, Tristan Thompson, and Corey Gamble, with Kanye West making a guest appearance.

The first season premiered on April 14, 2022, exclusively on Disney+. A second season premiered on September 22, 2022, with a third season renewal announced for the first half of 2023, officially airing on May 25, 2023.

Personal Life

In August of 2014, Tyga was spotted getting close to Jenner at her 17th birthday celebration.

Shortly after, Tyga ended his relationship with Blac Chyna, his fiancée and the mother of his child.

When Jenner turned 18 in 2015, she and Tyga officially became a couple. Jenner then appeared in two of Tyga’s music videos, “Stimulated” and “Dope’d Up”. The couple broke up in April 2017.

Jenner was first seen with Travis Scott at Coachella in April 2017. Their daughter was born on February 1, 2018.

Jenner also appeared in Scott’s music video for “Stop Trying to Be God” from his album Astroworld.

Although they split in September 2019, they quarantined together during the COVID-19 pandemic for the sake of their daughter and eventually rekindled their romance.

On September 7, 2021, Jenner announced that she and Scott were expecting their second child.

Their son was born on February 2, 2022. In January 2023, reports surfaced that the couple had once again broken up.

Since late 2023, Kylie has been romantically involved with actor Timothée Chalamet, with their public debut as a couple being at the 81st Golden Globes where they were seen kissing.

Jenner and Jordyn Woods first crossed paths in 2012, introduced by their mutual friend Jaden Smith, the son of Hollywood stars Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith.

Over the years, they developed a close friendship, with Woods even making appearances in Jenner’s reality TV show “Life of Kylie” in 2017 and her pregnancy video in 2018.

The bond between them led to the launch of the Kylie x Jordyn collection by Kylie Cosmetics in September 2018.

Unfortunately, their friendship came to an end in 2019 due to Woods’ involvement with Tristan Thompson, who was in a relationship with Jenner’s half-sister Khloé Kardashian.

Despite the fallout, Jenner decided to discontinue the Woods-named lip kit and discounted the remaining stock.

However, in July 2023, Jenner and Woods were seen together publicly for the first time since the scandal.

By November 2023, Jenner mentioned that they had never completely severed ties, shedding light on the current status of their relationship.

Controversies

On June 28, 2017, the Jenner sisters made public their plans to launch a collection of vintage T-shirts under their Kendall + Kylie clothing line named Rock vs. Rap.

This collection featured images of various rock and rap artists such as The Notorious B.I.G., Tupac Shakur, Metallica, Pink Floyd, The Doors, Ozzy Osbourne, and Led Zeppelin, with the Jenner sisters’ pictures superimposed on them.

The introduction of these products faced immediate criticism from family members and representatives of the artists portrayed on the shirts, including Sharon Osbourne, Jim Jampol, and Voletta Wallace, the mother of Biggie Smalls.

The Jenner sisters also faced backlash on social media, being labeled as “insensitive.” Wallace, The Doors’ manager, and Jim Morrison’s estate sent a cease-and-desist letter to the Jenner sisters, stating that they did not authorize the use of these musical icons’ likenesses.

In response, the Jenners issued an apology for the shirts and removed them from retail.

Forbes cover

Jenner appeared on the cover of the August 2018 issue of Forbes. The magazine claimed she had a net worth of $900 million and that she was on the verge of becoming the youngest “self-made” billionaire.

This would beat Mark Zuckerberg, who became a billionaire at age 23.

However, the publication’s use of the term “self-made” sparked widespread criticism and jokes online. Critics argued that Jenner was already born into fame and fortune.

Some discussions took a more serious tone, with journalists writing pieces on wealth distribution, inequality and inheritance, as well as upward mobility in society.

However, celebrities such as Jenner’s half-sister Kim Kardashian and socialite Paris Hilton have come out and defended Jenner, legitimizing assertions that she is indeed self-made, while Hilton who was born into the Hilton family also described herself as self-made.

In May 2020, Forbes released a statement accusing Jenner of forging tax documents so she would appear as a billionaire.

The publication also accused her of fabricating revenue figures for Kylie Cosmetics.

The same day, Jenner responded in a series of tweets, writing: “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”.

Jenner’s attorney also demanded that Forbes retract the statements, calling the magazine’s accusations “unequivocally false”.

Forbes reacted, stating that they spent months uncovering the facts and concluded that their “extensively-reported investigation was triggered by newly-filed documents that revealed glaring discrepancies between information privately supplied to journalists and information publicly supplied to shareholders”.

However, Jenner became the youngest person on Forbes‘s list of 100 Richest Self-Made Women in October 2020. She is the only person on the list in her 20s, and is worth $700 million.

Underpaying factory workers

Remake, a non-profit, labeled Global Brands Group as the manufacturer for the Kendall + Kylie clothing line. The organization claimed that money was being withheld from workers in the factories despite having finishing their work.

The organization also reported them firing workers in Los Angeles, affecting over fifty-thousand workers.

She received criticism for this on multiple platforms, with fans asking her to pay her workers.

In response to this, the clothing line said that Kendall + Kylie was not owned by Global Brands Group.
