Kylie Jenner is Still The World’s Highest Paid Celebrity Despite Losing Her Billionaire Status

Forbes has just announced its annual list of the 100 highest-paid celebrities in the world, and we're not surprised to see a Kardashian-Jenner on this list…

Kylie Jenner – the youngest member of the clan – has snagged the number one spot on the #Celebrity100 list, earning a cool $590 million due to the recent sale of 51 per cent of her stake in Kylie Cosmetics to American multinational beauty company Coty (Kylie reportedly made $540 million from the sale.)

Although being recently stripped of her billionaire status by Forbes for allegedly having "exaggerated over the years about the size of her business," this hasn't stopped the social media sensation and entrepreneur from coming out on top. She beat out brother-in-law Kanye West, tennis player Roger Federer, as well as footballers Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, for the title of highest paid celebrity.

After the allegations were made by Forbes claiming Kylie had presented fake financial statements, she took to twitter to express her disappointment and defend her earnings…

Nonetheless, Kylie's net worth still sits at a whopping $900 million.
