Waleed Aly isn't impressed with Kylie Jenner's Forbes cover

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star was recently named by the business magazine as "the youngest-ever self-made billionaire" after her worth shot up to $900m. "Welcome to the era of extreme fame leverage".

Forbes tweeted the story on Wednesday with the hashtag #SelfMadeWomen, prompting questioned whether "self-made" is an accurate description of Jenner's fortune.

Jenner now ranks at number 27 on Forbes' list of "America's Richest Self-Made Women".

That total is not confirmed and, since her company is privately owned by Jenner, she's not required to report her finances publicly.

However, Dictionary.com had a bone to pick with Jenner and the magazine, sharing a not-so-subtle tweet defining what it means to be "self-made".

Ghanaian photo model and Instagram star, Moesha Boduong has revealed that she has taken inspiration from Kylie Jenner's recent feat in Forbes magazine.

Forbes released an Instagram photo for the cover of the August 31 issue of the magazine yesterday, July 11. "So top executives at tech firms who are compensated for helping significantly grow companies make the ranks but not second-generation-women running family businesses".

The online dictionary's Twitter account even went as far as to give the link for the online definition of the word "self-made".

"It's incredible to be recognized for something I'm so passionate about, and I'm really grateful for that", Kylie said in the accompanying feature.
