Does Kylie Jenner’s Deal With Coty Threaten Her Billionaire Status?

By

It’s a very exciting time in Kylie Jenner’s life. The makeup mogul just announced that she will be selling 51 percent of Kylie Cosmetics to Coty — the international conglomerate behind brands like Clairol, CoverGirl, and Max Factor. Coty will be paying Kylie a cool $600 million to have the majority share of the company.
