Kylie Jenner has become the 5th wealthiest American celebrity of 2018, the same position with Jay-Z.

According to Forbes, the 21-year-old net worth of $900 million makes her a first-timer on the list. This list ranks the wealthiest American celebrities based on fortune they have amassed off their fame.

The list did not take into account stars whose wealth made their famous. Kylie Cosmeticswhich was launched two years ago, and has already shifted over $630 million in makeup products, according to Forbes.

The line is so popular new products typically sell-out within minutes of their release. There are indications that if Kylie continues on this rate, she might unseat Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg as the youngest-ever self-made billionaire.

Top on the list is Star Trek‘s founder, George Lucas with an estimated $5.4B which largely came from the fortune he pocketed when his Lucasfilm Production Company sold to Disneyfor $4.1 billion in 2012.

Michael Jordan (No. 4; $1.7 billion) climbs up the ranking with a $400 millionnet worth increase derived from his sneaker fortune and a 90% stake in the increasingly valuable Charlotte Hornets.

Diddy who has always occupied the position dropped to the second position with an estimated wealth of $825M. Forbes says the reason Jay-Z’s wealth went all up on the table is his new business interest in alcohol. He bought a stake in Armand de Brignac and D’Ussé cognac which increased his net worth.
