    Kylie Jenner has hit back at claims she bragged about her wealth

    The reality TV star and Kyle Cosmetics businesswoman has responded after Alex Rodriguez claimed she "was talking about Instagram and her lipstick, and how rich she is" at the Met Gala last month


    However, Kylie has dismissed this version of events, and posted a face palm emoji as she said on Twitter: "Umm no i didn't. We only spoke about 'Game of Thrones' (sic)"

    Former professional baseball shortstop A-Rod, 43, was pleased with the table he and Jennifer Lopez were put on for the star-studded event, but he has admitted he was amazed by how openly the 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' star spoke about money.

    He had said: "We had a great table. The black guy from 'The Wire' - Idris Elba, yeah, and his new wife. Some famous singer next to me, I don't know what her name is. Versace--Donatella.

    "We had Kylie and Kendall [Jenner]. And we had an Asian gentleman from 'Rich Asians', the lead. Kylie was talking about Instagram and her lipstick, and how rich she is."

    Kylie's alleged cash confidence comes as no surprise as back in March the 21-year-old reality TV star was named the world's youngest self-made billionaire by Forbes magazine.

    The brunette beauty - who has 16-month-old daughter Stormi with Travis Scott - insists she "didn't expect" to be so successful when she launched her beauty business Kylie Cosmetics, which Forbes magazine values at at least $900 million, four years ago.

    She said at the time: "I didn't expect anything. I did not foresee the future. But [the recognition] feels really good. That's a nice pat on the back."

    Kylie has overtaken Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, who previously held the title of youngest self-made billionaire from the age of 23.

    The make-up mogul signed an exclusive distribution deal in November last year with beauty store chain Ulta to stock her $29 lip kits - a matte liquid lipstick and matching lip liner - into the company's 1,000-plus stores across 50 states in the US, having previously sold only online or occasionally at pop-up shops.

    Following her deal with the beauty company, Kylie Cosmetics sold $54.5 million worth of products in just six weeks, according to estimates from Oppenheimer.

    Kylie owns her entire company, which she started in 2015, and has just seven full-time and five part-time employees, while manufacturing and packaging is outsourced to Seed Beauty and her mother Kris Jenner helps run the brand's finances and PR.
