Jenner, who turns 21 in August, appears on the cover of the financial magazine's "America's Women Billionaires" issue.

Kylie Jenner shocked her fans when she recently revealed she "got rid" of her lip fillers, and a source tells ET that the decision was influenced by her becoming a mom earlier this year to daughter Stormi.

Once she crosses the $1 billion mark, she will unseat Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg as the youngest-ever self-made billionaire.

As people debate Forbes' decision to put Kylie Jenner on a list of "self-made" billionaires, Dictionary.com is wading into the discourse. In a cover story about the 20-year-old multi-millionaire, Forbes conservatively values the company at $800 million, with an estimated $330 million in sales last year.

The magazine reports that Jenner is likely worth about $900 million, considering her company, Kylie Cosmetics, has sold more than $630 million in makeup to date, not to mention the millions she's earned from her TV show and other media appearances.

"We consider any person who built her own fortune, and didn't inherit the money, to be self-made", Forbes' methodology reads.

Even Dictionary.com took a moment to tweet the definition of "self-made", which "means having succeeded in life unaided". Netizens are pointing out the fact that Jenner shouldn't be called "self-made" as she was born into an already rich family. Her success is commendable but it comes by virtue of her privilege. Used in a sentence: "Forbes says that Kylie Jenner is a self-made woman".
