Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was knocked to eighth place on Forbes' 33rd annual 2019 list of billionaires following a year of scandals over United Kingdom political consultancy firm Cambridge Analytica, which revealed that over 87m Facebook users had their data compromised by the shadowy organisation.

"I didn't expect anything", Jenner told Forbes. Forbes credits the company's success with its minuscule overhead and marketing costs which allow most of the profits to go right into Jenner's pocket. But (the recognition) feels really good. "That's a nice pat on the back".

Kylie Jenner, 21, the reality television star, became the world's youngest self-made billionaire on the list.

Besides being named one of America's richest self-made women as she graced the cover of Forbes' ranking of the most successful female businesswomen, Jenner was also ranked as one of the top five wealthiest celebrities for 2018 by Forbes.

On their billionaires list, Forbes distinguishes between those who inherited much of their wealth and those who made their fortunes on their own.

Talking about Brahmastra past year , Ayan had said, "It's a modern-day film set in India as it exists today". However, it has been named Brahmastra because it gets all the energies, wisdom and powers from ancient India.

"She's the youngest-ever self-made billionaire, reaching a ten-figure fortune at a younger age than even Mark Zuckerberg [who was 23 when he hit that mark]".

This is not to say that Jenner doesn't work hard or that she has no business acumen.

"I had such a strong reach before I was able to start anything".

Still, the young billionaire continues to double down on claims she's self-made.

"She did well online, but there's only so far that that can take her", Shannon Coyne, an equity research analyst at BMO Capital Markets, said of Jenner. She is the sole owner of the brand Kylie Cosmetics. "Khloe and Tristan are still communicating and always will. Khloe is very big about 'I'm having the father of her child staying in her life no matter how bad things get'".
