Kylie Jenner in row with Forbes over billionaire status
A row has broken out between one of the world's leading business magazines and the youngest member of reality TV's most famous family over the value of her cosmetics company.
Forbes magazine has accused Kylie Jenner of spinning a "web of lies" to inflate the size and success of her business.
Jenner, 22, has been struck off the magazine's coveted list of billionaires after becoming its youngest ever "self-made" member in March 2019. She reacted angrily on social media and said the allegations called into question Forbes's reputation.
现年 22 岁的詹娜曾在 2019 年 3 月跻身众人垂涎的《福布斯》“白手起家”亿万富豪排行榜，成为了榜单上最年轻的成员，但她现在已被除名。詹娜在社交媒体上愤怒回应，认为她受到的指责令福布斯信誉存疑。
Jenner agreed to sell a 51% stake of her cosmetics company, to the publicly traded beauty firm Coty for £486m in November in a deal valuing her business at about £970m.
詹娜在去年 11 月将自己彩妆公司 51% 的股份以 4.86 亿英镑的价格出售给了美妆上市公司科蒂；这笔交易中，詹娜的品牌估值约为 9.7 亿英镑。
Forbes said, however, that information shared by Coty showed Jenner's firm is "significantly smaller and less profitable than the family has spent years leading the cosmetics industry and media outlets, including Forbes, to believe".***
Jenner is not the first person to have been accused of inflating their wealth to become known as a billionaire. Other notable examples include the US commerce secretary, Wilbur Ross, and the US president, Donald Trump.
"Of course, white lies, omissions and outright fabrications are to be expected from the family that perfected – then monetized – the concept of 'famous for being famous'," the article said.
"But, similar to Donald Trump's decades-long obsession with his net worth, the unusual lengths to which the Jenners have been willing to go … reveals just how desperate some of the ultra-rich are to look even richer."
