Kim Kardashian Tweeted To Prove She's Not Mad That Kylie Jenner's About To Become A Billionaire

Nothing to see here but sisterly support.

Yesterday, a Forbes cover story announced that Kylie Jenner is about to become the youngest self-made billionaire in history, with a net-worth of $900 million.

The majority of her wealth has come from Kylie Cosmetics, which launched three years ago and has generated $630 million in sales. Kylie owns 100% of the company, according to Forbes. The magazine said that Kylie's net worth will likely pass $1 billion within the next year.

And of course, people were shook.

$900 million under HER name. Can we let go of the Kylie Jenner AINT got no talent narrative? Clearly, making money moves is it @Forbes https://t.co/xfYpeQ75BT

Kylie Jenner literally cracked the code and illustrated the blue print. She’s 20 years old and worth $900M!!!!!! She owns 100% of Kylie Cosmetics!

However, the magazine also made the interesting estimation that Kim Kardashian is only (lol,) worth $350 million – a figure dwarfed by Kylie's net worth.

And of course, people had ~opinions~ – namely that Kim would probably be pretty pissed off that her younger sister had eclipsed her earnings.

I wonder how mad Kim Kardashian’s is now that Kylie is the richest Kardashian. Like how long before she post another nude so we can all forget about Kylie being a billionaire? https://t.co/H5OpkJ0jAv

If I’m Kim, I’m mad as hell they calling Kylie “self-made” .. like I didnt have to buss it open for us to get here 🙄

When Kim K hears people calling Kylie ‘self-made’

That’s not my point, Kim got them all famous, which gave Kylie her platform...with a platform FROM Kim, she was making money = not self made...idc that she flipped the bag and increased her money that’s not the point https://t.co/W4iRocaspV

It’s really bothering my inner peace that kylies richer then Kim? Like she’s not self made at all, everyone knows it’s all thanks to Kim https://t.co/YABokYJJUg

However, if there's one thing we know about the Kardashians, it's that family is everything. And so Kim wasted no time in proving that she's completely proud of Kylie.

Kim took to Twitter to share the cover of the magazine, congratulating Kylie alongside the flame emoji.

And then a few hours later, shared the image for a second time, along with this caption.

Wait I’m posting this again just because!!!! BILLION DOLLAR BABY 🔥🔥🔥🔥🌊🌊🌊🌊💥💥💥💥🤑🤑🤑🤑

And then, she retweeted this comment which appeared to respond to criticism that Kylie was neither "self-made" nor deserving of her success.
