Speaking on the CBS Sunday Morning show, Kris Jenner defended Kylie Jenner and said she used her own savings to begin Kylie Cosmetics. Listen, my girls, you can say that certain things have been handed to them. Following the release of the article though, the public was in an outrage over whether or not the youngest Jenner truly deserved this title.The Kylie Cosmetics owner was criticized for leveraging her family's fame, wealth and connections to reach her level of success, and therefore lacking the credibility to be dubbed "self-made". "It was awesome what she did", Jenner said, adding that her entire family took notes from the youngest sister.

"She showed the rest of us how to do it", Kris boasted. "I can't say I've done it by myself". She also receives her "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" paycheck, as well as money from paid endorsements for waist trainers, appetite-suppressing teas, her Adidas partnership and her Kendall + Kylie clothing and shoe line.

"My parents told me I needed to make my own money, it's time to learn how to save and spend your own money, stuff like that", she told Paper magazine back in February.

Though Kylie continued to live with Kris Jenner until she was 18, the makeup mogul revealed that her mother stopped funding her lifestyle three years prior. Kylie since has come forward and admitted she had "a lot of help" and a huge social media presence, but her mom maintains Kylie is entirely self-made.
