According to Alex Rodriguez, Kylie Jenner bragged about how “rich” she was to him and Jennifer Lopez at this year’s Metropolitan Museum of Arts Costume Institute.

The 43-year-old former professional baseball shortstop was pleased with where he and the “On The Floor” hitmaker were placed for the star-studded event, but was amazed by how openly the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star spoke about money.

Speaking to Sports Illustrated magazine, he explained: “We had a great table. The Black guy from The WireIdris Elba, yeah, and his new wife. Some famous singer next to me, I don’t know what her name is. Versace — Donatella. We had Kylie and Kendall [Jenner]. And we had an Asian gentleman from Crazy Rich Asians, the lead.

Kylie was talking about Instagram and her lipstick, and how rich she is.”

Her cash confidence comes as no surprise as back in March the 21-year-old reality TV star was named the world’s youngest self-made billionaire by Forbes magazine.

The brunette beauty – who has 16-month-old daughter Stormi with Travis Scott – insists she “didn’t expect” to be so successful when she launched her beauty business Kylie Cosmetics, which Forbes magazine valued at least $900 million, four years ago.

She said at the time: “I didn’t expect anything. I did not foresee the future. But [the recognition] feels really good. That’s a nice pat on the back.”

Most of the brand’s marketing is done through social media — where the brunette beauty announces product launches, previews new items and tells fans which shades she’s wearing each day — to her 175 million-plus fan base across Instagram, Facebook and Twitter and Kylie believes it’s been essential to her success.

She added: “It’s the power of social media. I had such a strong reach before I was able to start anything.”

Jenner has overtaken Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, who previously held the title of the youngest self-made billionaire from the age of 23.
