Kylie Jenner fans are throwing their support behind a GoFundMe page to help the businesswoman become the world’s youngest billionaire.

Jenner, 21, has made Forbes’ 2018 list of 60 Richest Self-Made Women thanks to her $900 million Kylie Cosmetics empire – but she is $100 million short of being a billionaire.

In a bid to speed up the process, one ‘heartbroken’ fan set up a GoFundMe page to help the reality TV star reach the target.

Started by Instagram celebrity Josh Ostrovsky, who goes by the nickname The Fat Jew, the campaign has so far raised $1,848.

The campaign description reads: “Kylie Jenner was on the cover of Forbes Magazine today for having a net worth of 900 million dollars, which is heartbreaking.

“I don't want to live in a world where Kylie Jenner doesn’t have a billion dollars. WE MUST RAISE 100 MILLION DOLLARS TO HELP HER GET TO A BILLION, PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD, THIS IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT.”

Fans jokingly threw their support behind the bid with one tweeting: “Skipping my child support payments to help this fierce female become an iconic billionaire!”

Another wrote: “Just took out a second mortgage to support.”

A third joked: “My kid doesn't need to eat this month..I'm in.”

Another sarcastic comment read: “I was going to rent a house for my family but being homeless so she can have more money is clearly better.”

Kim Kardashian recently defended her youngest sister after took a savage swipe at her being “self-made”. The company’s official Twitter account posted the definition of the word, tweeting: “Self-made means having succeeded in life unaided.

“Used in a sentence: Forbes says that Kylie Jenner is a self-made woman.”

Kardashian hit back in defence telling Refinery29: “I really didn’t get it, because she is 'self-made' — we are all self-made.

“What, because we came from a family that has had success?

“We might have the opportunity, but I’ve seen it go the complete opposite way. Nobody works harder than my sisters and my mum.”
