Kylie Jenner: “I Haven’t Had A Dollar Of My Mom’s Money For Five Years”
The world met Kylie Jenner when she was just a young girl, appearing alongside her much older, famous sisters on E!’s Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
We’ve seen the reality star grow up right before our eyes and now, the 18-year-old has made a name for herself due to her business savvy mindset. “I’m a young woman, for one thing, and I don’t depend on a man or anybody else,” Jenner recently revealed to Glamour UK.
The publication’s June covergirl continued, “I make my own money and start my own businesses, and I feel like I’m an inspiration for a lot of young girls who want to stand on their own.”
“I haven’t had a dollar of my mom’s money for five years,” she explained. “Ever since I started earning my own money, I’ve paid for everything: all my cars, houses, clothes, everything. I like to know exactly what’s going on and I’m actually quite careful with what I spend. We all are as a family.”
For Kylie, much of her success comes from KUWTK and being active on social media. Tyga’s girlfriend is one of the most followed users on the app, garnering a whopping 59.9 million followers. But believe it or not, Jenner doesn’t plan on being in the spotlight for the rest of her life.
“In time, I think I’ll just slowly start moving behind the scenes,” Kylie revealed. “The show [Keeping Up With the Karadashians] has to end eventually, and I’m not going to leave until we’re done with it, but by 20 I want to have the whole of my cosmetics line out because that’s my primary focus. I definitely won’t want to be doing anything else that would make me more public.”
