There are many people disputing the claim that reality TV show star and cosmetics mogul Kylie Jenner is a self-made billionaire, but 100 Thieves CEO Matt ‘Nadeshot’ Haag is having none of it.

On March 5, Forbes officially declared Jenner, 21, as the world’s youngest self-made billionaire, beating out Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerburg, who reached the ten-figure mark at the age of 23.

A large majority of her wealth comes from her Kylie Cosmetics company, which is estimated to be worth at least $900 million and has products sold both online and in retail stores throughout the United States. 

However, many have criticized Forbes’ use of the title “self-made billionaire” when describing Jenner, citing her ultra-famous family and inheritance as a major reason for her success.

Even Dictionary.com has tweeted several times on the subject, defining the term “self-made” as “having succeeded in life unaided,” insinuating that it does not apply to the 21 year old star. 

One prominent person who has sided with Jenner on this issue is Nadeshot, who tweeted out in her defense on March 5, calling the criticism of her newly earned status “nonsense.”

“Kylie Jenner is a billionaire but everyone is mad at the headline or claiming she’s this or that,” he tweeted. “Guess what, she has a billion reasons why she doesn’t care about none of this nonsense.”

The comments section was full of people debating about the legitimacy of Jenner’s new status and Nadeshot’s viewpoint. Some expressed their agreement while others continued to argue that her path to success and wealth, while legitimate, was very much aided. 

“Her money she made on the show that she put into her company, seems self made to me,” said Gen.G content creator AvaGG.

“Yeah fair enough, though not ‘self made’ in the least bit,” someone responded. “That’s all family money. Without Kim [Kardashian] or Kris [Jenner], there’s no Kylie.”

At the end of the day, Nadeshot is probably right in what he said – youngest or not, self-made or not, Jenner is a billionaire, regardless of what people say or think.

Tana Mongeau has responded to a video of her ex-girlfriend Bella Thorne who was filmed kissing another influencer in a TikTok that’s had millions of views.

Bella Thorne was at Clubhouse BH this week, the creator collective founded by Daisy Keech. The “Shake it Up” actress collaborated with influencer Teala Dunn in TikTok videos.

But in one video she was seen kissing her directly on the lips. The clip has already racked up more than 8 million views and 1.5 million likes.

It’s unsurprising that the pair are hanging out, as Teala and Bella have known each other for several years after both appearing on Shake It Up together. Bella makes regular appearances in influencers’ social media posts and even music videos.

Teala recently joined Clubhouse BH and has come under fire in recent weeks for repeatedly posting TikToks that use the same joke, over and over. Her video with Bella Thorne even plays into the same joke where she begins the video saying: “Fun fact, actually really really sad fact.”

Bella is also the ex-girlfriend of popular YouTuber Tana Mongeau. They dated for over a year but broke up in February 2019, and have thrown shade at each other over social media since.

Tana responded to the kiss by duetting the TikTok from her own account, adding: “People really pretend to be my friend,” and then commented “It’s a joke…kinda? Like?”

TikTokers and other influencers weighed in with their opinions too. Harry Jowsey commented: “What happened last time someone hung out with your ex?” referring to drama between the two and Francesca Farago in September.

Francesca and Tana were rumored to be dating, but they got into a fight after Tana posted a video with Harry, Francesca’s ex-boyfriend.

Another user got over 10,000 likes on one comment under Tana’s TikTok that said: “Teala hasn’t even done anything to me, yet she triggers me so much and idek why.”

Teala herself commented: “Girl what???” Despite claiming her response is a joke. But the pair appeared to have resolved any issues that may have come up after Teala tweeted: “Ummm I freaking love @tanamongeau everything’s fine y’all there’s no drama,” and Tana responded with love heart emojis.

Whether a romance is blossoming between Teala and Bella is yet to be determined.
