On Tuesday, Forbes and Bloomberg reported that the makeup entrepreneur and reality star had officially crossed the $1 billion milestone.
Some people were less than pleased with the designation of Jenner, whose ritzy upbringing was documented on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, as "self-made." Forbes uses the "self-made" designation as a way to distinguish between extremely rich people who inherited wealth and those whose fortune was made primarily in other ways.
Jenner follows in the footsteps of some of the most famous billionaires in the world -- including Mark Zuckerberg and Evan Spiegel, who each made their first billion before reaching the age of 30. A few high-profile names, including Larry Page and Bill Gates, just missed the cutoff, achieving documented billionaire status at age 31.
Here are the select few self-made billionaires who made $1 billion before age 30.
In 2014, Forbes estimated Holmes had a net worth $4.5 billion at age 30 because of the massive valuation of her blood-testing startup, Theranos. At the time, she was the youngest woman to become a self-made billionaire -- and held that status until Jenner's recent triumph.
Patrick Collison joined the elite ranks of people who become billionaires before turning 30 at age 28 in 2016. Stripe, an online-payments company founded by Collison and his brother John, reached a $9.2 billion valuation after raising $150 million from Alphabet's investment division, pushing both brothers into the billionaire range.

Dustin Moskovitz, 26
Moskovitz made Forbes' billionaires list for the first time in 2010, at the age of 26. While Moskovitz left Facebook in 2008, after serving as its first chief technology officer, his 6% stake in Facebook was almost entirely responsible for his place on the list.
