Kylie Jenner is threatening to take legal action against Forbes after the publication alleged she forged tax returns to secure her “youngest billionaire,” title. She is now demanding a public retraction.
According to Jenner’s lawyer Michael Kump, the Forbes article concerning her billionaire status spreads “outright lies.” He added, “Forbes’ accusation that Kylie and her accountants ‘forged tax returns’ is unequivocally false and we are demanding that Forbes immediately and publicly retract that and other statements,” in a statement obtained by TheBlast.
Kump went on to say it is sad that Forbes had three reporters investigate the effects of the COVID-19 crisis on Jenner’s net worth.
Kylie—who responded to Forbes in a series of tweets Friday morning—and her lawyer’s demands to the brand come after the outlet published a scathing article today, alleging Kylie Jenner is not worth anywhere near what she claims. It also accused the 22-year-old and her coined-up Kardashian family of supplying ‘forged’ documents to prove the reality star’s income.
