American business magazine, Forbes has said that even though not a billionaire, Kylie Jenner is the highest-paid celebrity in the world.
During the annual Forbes list, Kylie Jenner and her brother-in-law Kanye West topped as the highest-paid celebrities, but sports stars, including Roger Federer and Lionel Messi, dominated the top 10.
The 22-year-old half-sister of Kim Kardashian, made headlines a week ago when Forbes said that after reviewing data from the Coty sale, it no longer believed she was a billionaire as it had declared a year ago.
Jenner responded saying that the original Forbes estimate was based on “several inaccurate statements and unproven assumptions.”
Forbes estimated that Jenner earned $590 million in the last 12 months, mostly from the sale of a 51 percent stake in her Kylie Cosmetics line to Coty in 2019.
West, who is married to Kardashian, followed with an estimated $170 million in earnings, much of it from his deal with Adidas for his Yeezy sneaker brand.
