In case you haven't heard, according to Forbes Kylie Jenner is a self-made millionaire who is only $100 million shy of being America's youngest self-made billionaire ever. Since Forbes came out with their list of America's Richest Self-Made Women, people have been debating whether or not Kylie can actually be considered a self-made businesswoman because her family is, you know, the Kardashians and Jenners. But there is one person who begged to differ with all the critics and said Kylie is indeed self-made. That person is, of course, her big sister Kim Kardashian.

In an interview with Refinery29, Kim said, "I really didn't get it, because she is 'self-made'—we are all 'self-made.'" Kim also said that just because Kylie is from the Kardashian-Jenner clan, that doesn't mean anything.

"What, because we came from a family that has had success? To me, that doesn’t really make sense," she said. "I know so many people like that haven’t turned out to be as successful as Kylie. If anything, I've seen the complete opposite."

Kim also said they've never taken anything from their parents except "advice." She said, "We might have the opportunity, but I’ve seen it go the complete opposite way. Nobody works harder than my sisters and my mom."

Kylie, on the other hand, hasn't said anything in regards to the controversy surrounding her cover. Instead, she's working on making that $100 million and just launched her new Kylie Cosmetics Summer '18 collection this weekend.
