Kylie Jenner has topped Forbes' annual list of highest paid celebrities despite claims that she lied about her billionaire status.

The reality TV star and make-up model reportedly made $590 million over the past year. She is way out in front of second-placed Kanye West who reportedly made $170 million.

However, BANG Showbiz reports that Forbes now estimates Kanye’s nett worth to be $1,3 billion, largely thanks to his Yeezy fashion line. West is the husband of Kylie's sister, Kim Kardashian.

The 22-year-old stunner's eye-watering earnings came after she sold a 51% stake in Kylie Cosmetics to the beauty giant Coty.

BANG Showbiz reports that Forbes – which made its calculations using pre-tax earnings between June 2019 and May 2020 – has reiterated its recent claim that Kylie is not a billionaire.

The star recently became involved in a high-profile dispute with the finance magazine after it insisted she wasn’t a billionaire.

The publication accused the make-up mogul of spinning a "web of lies" about her business, including her Kylie Cosmetics brand, reports BANG Showbiz.

Kylie’s lawyer, Michael Kump, hit back at Forbes, insisting its article contained "outright lies" about the star and demanding the company retract its comments.

"We have reviewed Forbes’ article accusing Kylie of engaging in deceit and a 'web of lies' to inflate her nett worth. The article is filled with outright lies."

YEN.com.gh has reported that Kylie bought a $15 million 5-acre plot just weeks after buying a mansion.
