Last week Forbes magazine revealed that Kylie Jenner is on track to become the world's youngest self-made billionaire in history.

However, it didn't take long before people – and the actual Dictionary – began throwing shade Kylie's way, saying that she isn't self-made at all.

calling kylie jenner a ‘self-made billionaire’ is like claiming you made soup from scratch because you opened a can and reheated it.

@KimKardashian @KylieJenner self-made? HAAAAA

Well, now Kim Kardashian has weighed in on the debate and defended Kylie amid the criticism.

Speaking to Refinery 29, Kim said:I really didn't get it, because she is "self-made." We're 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 went on to say that neither she, Kylie nor the other Kardashian/Jenner siblings had ever been given anything from their parents other than "advice."

She said:

Me, Kylie, not one of [the siblings] has ever depended on our parents for anything besides advice. That's how I lived my life with my dad. He never gave me anything. We might have had the opportunity, but I've seen it go the complete opposite way. Nobody works harder than my sisters and my mom.

And Kim concluded by saying how "proud" she was of Kylie for "taking an insecurity of hers and figuring out how to make a really successful business out of it."

So that's that.

E!
