American TV personality Kylie Jenner has made millions as a socialite and model. She rose to fame on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, a reality TV show. Since then, her profile has rocketed and so has her bank balance.
The young woman is worth a massive $11million dollars.
Four years ago Jenner worked with fashion clothing brand PacSun, which involved her sister, Kendall Jenner, and the pair created their own clothing line called "Kendall & Kylie".
Time magazine listed the teen sisters in its 2014 Most Influential Teens list, owing to the pair’s massive social media following and therefore reach to young people. The very definition of influence. And we all know how a big social media following can turn posts into cash for brand endorsements.
Believe it or not, Kylie Jenner has one of the largest Instagram followings.
But the teen certainly has ambition and some business acumen (or at least some decent advisers). Last year she launched her very own cosmetics brands called Kylie Cosmetics. She also launched an app which quickly became popular and reached the top spot on the iTunes store.
It is reckoned that of her wealth, $5.5 million comes from traditional modeling and a further $4 million comes from modelling on social media. Not bad gigs if you can get them.
The Jenner sisters grew up in California, and are the daughters of 1976 Summer Olympics decathlon winner Caitlyn Jenner, who later became known as Bruce Jenner, after undergoing a sex-change. The family is so well-known that almost all of them, including half sisters Kourtney, Kim and Khloe Kardashian — are raking it in and all becoming multi-millionaires.
Last year Kylie bought a $2.7 million five-bedroom mansion in the fancy gated community in California. A teenager with plenty of purchasing power right there.
“I feel like I'm way too young to wear such heavy makeup all the time. It's just bad for your skin, but I'm always doing photo shoots or red carpets and events, so I obviously want to look good.” Kylie once said.
Whatever she’s doing, she’s doing it right to be earning such colossal amounts of money from her activities. Don’t stop now! says the bank manager.
The family seems to attract money, it follows them round like it the most natural thing in the world. Earlier this year it was rumoured that the Kardashian’s are working on a film with $100 million paid to the Kardashians. It’s not clear how much money Kylie would see of this figure, but it’s fair to say that she’ll likely pocket millions.
But the young Kylie also has a big heart. She has used eBay to raise money for her local hospital Children's Hospital Los Angeles. Can’t argue with that.
Whatever she is doing she should carry on, because it seems that whatever she does, the money will keep pouring into her bank account.
