Early Life and Education
Kylie Kristen Jenner was born in Los Angeles, California on August 10, 1997, to Kris and former Olympic gold medalist Bruce Jenner. Bruce came out as transgender in 2015 and has been known as Caitlyn since then.
Kylie has an older sister, Kendall, and several half-siblings: Kourtney, Kim, Khloé and Rob from her mother’s first marriage to O.J. Simpson defense attorney Robert Kardashian, as well as Burt, Brandon, Brody, and Casey from her father’s previous marriages.
Khloé married basketball players Lamar Odom in 2009 and Tristan Thompson in 2016. In 2014, her sister Kim married rap superstar Kanye West.
Jenner attended the private Sierra Canyon School and graduated from Lauren Springs High School. Calabasas, California, is where she calls home.
Jenner also has her own cosmetics line, Kylie Cosmetics, which includes the wildly popular Kylie Lip Kit.
When the then-17-year-old socialite admitted to using “temporary lip fillers” in 2015, she sparked media frenzy in July 2018 when she revealed via Instagram that the fillers were gone).
She and Kendall were named to Time magazine’s list of the Most Influential Teens in 2015. That same year, she launched Kylie, a paid lifestyle app that is expected to generate millions of dollars for the young entrepreneur.
Kylie Jenner, like her sisters, has a large social media following; on Instagram alone, she has more than 100 million followers.
She used her celebrity figure to launch a social media campaign against bullying called #IAmMoreThan. The campaign highlighted the personal stories of six people who turned their painful bullying experiences into something positive.
Jenner’s social media influence was demonstrated when, in February 2018, she tweeted about her lack of interest in the Snapchat platform, shares of its parent company fell by 6.1 percent the next day, wiping out a whopping $1.3 billion in market value.
That summer Forbes featured Jenner on a cover to highlight its annual “richest self-made women” list.
Coming in at No. 27 with a net worth of $900 million — well ahead of famous big sister Kim, at $350 million — Jenner’s fortune was attributed to her 100 percent ownership of the successful Kylie Cosmetics brand.
Jenner was featured in Forbes’ annual list of the world’s wealthiest people in March 2019.
With a net worth of $1 billion, the 21-year-old became the youngest member of the billionaires’ club and the youngest self-made billionaire, breaking the record previously held by Mark Zuckerberg, who was 23 at the time.
In May, she launched her Kylie Skin skincare line, demonstrating no signs of slowing down. Coty Inc., the fragrance and cosmetics giant, announced in November 2019 that it would buy a 51 percent stake in Jenner’s beauty business for $600 million.
Jenner would continue to serve as creative lead on product development and marketing initiatives for her brand, in addition to retaining 49 percent ownership.
In April 2017, Kylie Jenner began dating rapper Travis Scott. Later, reports surfaced that she was pregnant, but neither Kylie nor any other member of the Kardashian/Jenner clan would confirm it.
