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

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.
