While there's no doubt that Kylie Jenner billionaire, people are a bit dubious about the "self-made" part.

She is a 20-year-old from a family who is famous for being famous and she is nearly a billionaire.

But the Twitterverse has opinions on Forbes using the word "self-made" to describe someone who had $250,000 laying around-money Jenner had earned from modeling gigs-to jumpstart her business.

Forbes The 20-year-old with her seemingly unstoppable makeup empire, Kylie Cosmetics, is one of seven newcomers on the list. "I'm so blessed to do what i love everyday. i couldn't have dreamt this up!"

Jenner said she hopes to pass her business down to her daughter, Stormi: "If she's into it", she said. "That, in turn, has helped the nation's most successful women become richer than ever before".

Another Twitter user said "calling Kylie Jenner a "self-made billionaire" is like claiming you made soup from scratch because you opened a can and reheated it".
