Businesswoman Kylie Jenner, who has been deprived of her status as the world’s youngest billionaire, and her elder sister Kendall were caught refusing to pay salaries to their production staff. This is reported in the Instagram account Diet Prada, whose administrators publish scandals of the fashion world.
The U.S. Corporation Global Brands Group, which owns the fashion brand Kendall + Kylie, announced the impossibility of producing a collection of clothes spring-summer 2020 because of the coronavirus pandemic. The company had to stop working with suppliers of materials that had already been manufactured and handed over to Jenner factories.
As a result, textile industry workers, particularly in Bangladesh, were not paid for their work, and in social media were created many posts calling for the millionaire’s «humanity». «In my country, people are dying and Kylie Jenner orders products from here for her company and refuses to pay for it», says one such post on Twitter.
In addition, it is noted that all comments on this topic, which users leave on sisters’ Instagram pages, are deleted very soon. Kylie and Kendall themselves have not yet replied to any of the appeals.
On May 29, Forbes magazine deprived Kylie Jenner of her status as the youngest billionaire in the world. Journalists accused her of lying about her company’s income and forging tax returns to preserve her title. It turned out that Jenner’s current income is not a billion dollars, but just under 900 million dollars.
