Kylie Jenner (born Kylie Kristen Jenner) was born on August 10, 1997 (age 21) in Los Angeles; California to the popular American TV personality and retired Olympic gold medallist Caitlyn Jenner and business woman Kristen Mary Jenner (Kris Jenner) as the youngest member of the Kardashian clan. At 21, she became the world’s youngest self-made billionaire ever. But what do you know about her?

Her net worth:

According to Forbes, Kylie Jenner is currently worth $1 billion.

Early childhood:

Kylie had her education at Sierra Canyon School and Laurel Springs School; both in her hometown California and currently resides at Hidden Hills, California.

At age 14 in 2012, she collaborated with the clothing brand PacSun, along with her sister Kendall, and created a line of clothing, “Kendall & Kylie”. In 2015, Jenner launched her own cosmetics line called “Kylie Lip Kits”, which was later renamed to Kylie Cosmetics the following year. She has starred in the E! reality television series Keeping Up with the Kardashians since 2007.

Career:

In 2007, Jenner, along with her parents and siblings, Kendall, Kourtney, Kim, Khloé, and Rob, began appearing in the reality television series Keeping Up with the Kardashians, which chronicles the personal and professional lives of their family members. The series was successful for its network, E!, and has resulted in the creation of numerous spin-offs including Kourtney and Kim Take Miami, Khloé & Lamar, Kourtney and Kim Take New York, and Kourtney and Khloé Take The Hamptons, in which Jenner has made multiple guest appearances.

2013–2014: Early endorsements

Jenner has two nail lacquers from the Nicole by OPI nail polish brand called Wear Something Spar-kylie and Rainbow in the S-kylie. Kendall and Kylie earned $100,000 each for their OPI endorsements in 2013.

Jenner became skincare brand Nip + Fab’s second-ever ambassador in March 2015.

Later in the year, the Jenner sisters were booed while introducing brother-in-law Kanye West’s performance at the Billboard Music Awards in May 2015. In May 2015, an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians premiered in which Jenner admitted to getting a lip augmentation. Her enhanced lips from lip fillers created speculation and gained her publicity. Prior to the episode’s debut, Jenner stated that she merely used lip liner and over lined her lips. As a result, the practice of suctioning one’s lips into a small glass in order to induce greater blood flow to swell the lips was called the “Kylie Jenner Challenge” (though there was no indication that Jenner herself employed this method). Jenner responded to this by stating, “I’m not here to try & encourage people/young girls to look like me or to think this is the way they should look.”

Her cosmetics company is worth an estimated $900 million and she is the most influential person on Instagram with more than 108 million followers

Charity Deeds:

Jenner set up an eBay account where she auctions old clothing to raise money for the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. Jenner joined her family in a charity yard sale on November 10, 2013. Proceeds from the sale were donation-matched and sent to Share Our Strength: No Kid Hungry and the Greater Los Angeles Fisher House Foundation. She joined Khloé, Kendall, Lil Twist, and The Game at PINZ bowling alley in Studio City, California for a charity bowling game on January 19, 2014. The event was held to raise money for The Robin Hood Foundation, a nonprofit for which The Game pledged to raise $1 million in donations. The Jenner sisters participated in singer Chris Brown’s two Kick’n It For Charity Celebrity Kickball games in Glendale, California on July 19, 2014 and on August 16, 2014. At the first game, she competed on actor/singer Quincy Brown’s team.


Personal Life

Jenner is currently in a relationship with rapper Travis Scott, with whom she has a daughter born in February 2018. Jenner had previously dated rapper Tyga between 2014 and 2017.
