37-year-old reality star KIM KARDASHIAN is defending her sister Kylie Jenner’s Forbes magazine cover, on which Kylie is called the “Youngest Ever SELF-MADE Billionaire.”
Many have expressed outrage at the claim saying that the Kardashians were always successful, even before Kylie started her lip-kit business. Kim is now speaking out against the backlash, saying to Refinery29: “I really didn’t get it, because she is ‘self-made’ — we are all ‘self-made.’ What, because we came from a family that has had success? To me, that doesn’t really make sense… I know so many people like that [who] haven’t turned out to be as successful as Kylie. If anything, I’ve seen the complete opposite.”
Kim continued: “Me, Kylie, not one [of the siblings] has ever depended on our parents for anything besides advice,” she says. “That’s how I lived my life with my dad [Robert Kardashian]. He never gave me anything. We might have the opportunity, but I’ve seen it go the complete opposite way. Nobody works harder than my sisters and my mom.” For more of Kim’s interview with Refinery29 click here.
