Reality star Kylie Jenner has defied the odds by becoming the world’s youngest self-made billionaire dethroning Mark Zuckerberg as the youngest person to ever reach the milestone.
The Kylie Cosmetic creator was photographed breaking the law in Los Angeles as she chatted on her cellphone while driving. All this while the internet was going wild over her new ‘self-made billionaire’ title.
Chatting and driving is a big no-no under California law which makes it illegal to use a handheld phone or text while driving. First offenders can be slapped with a $150 ticket.
Somehow we think the world’s youngest billionaire can afford the fine.
The makeup mogul looked deep in conversation as she wore minimal makeup for her chit-chat as she cruised through Calabasas.
The internet was fired up over the fact Kylie fell into the ‘self-made’ category coming from such a rich and famous family. You can read some of the debate points below.
Kylie Jenner is not a “self made billionaire” her family was already worth millions and incredibly famous. All she did was leverage her fame, fortune, and family name. https://t.co/jTxoH0LqwE

The naysayers aren’t derailing Kylie who is defying the rules of what it is to be self-made and she is proud of it. Of course, there are plenty of people on Kylie’s side!
.@KylieJenner was worth $5M in 2015. Fewer than 4 years later, she's become the world's first self-made billionaire.
Don't believe she's self-made? How about you try achieving a 19,900.00% return on investment in 4 years.
Congrats, girl. You earned it. https://t.co/VDzITayGm7
