Forbes has shut down reports that Kim Kardashian is now a billionaire after she sold a 20 percent stake of her beauty line to American multinational beauty company, COTY, for $200 million.
This is coming after her husband, rapper Kanye West, took to social media on Tuesday, June 30, to congratulate her on becoming a billionaire after her deal with COTY.
According to Forbes, the 39-year-old reality star and mother of four is worth about $900million after inking a deal with Coty Inc. to sell a 20 percent stake in the company, which sells make-up and fragrances, for $200million
