‘What am I even waking up to. I thought this was a reputable site… All I see are a number of inaccurate statements and unproven assumptions lol. I’ve never asked for any title or tried to lie my way there EVER. Period.”

Kylie Jenner Highest Earner 2020
A representative for Kylie told forbes in a statement:
“The accusations that the Jenners, and/or their accountants, falsified tax returns and then lied about their 2016 revenues for the last four years, are absolutely false,” the letter reads, in part.
Regardless of whether the KUWTK star is a billionaire, she certainly travels like one. According to mirror online Kylie travels in her very own private jet! The jet is rumoured to have be kitted out with 10 seats and premium leather throughout. The estimated to cost around $5 million a year to maintain. Furthermore more the jet can’t land at most private airfields because it needs a longer runway.
No suprise she lost her billionaire status after spending 73 million on her jet. Although being the highest earning celebrity 2020, she can more than likely afford the Extravagance.
