Given that both Kim kardashian and Kylie Jenner are both newly-minted billionaires (well, almost), it makes sense that the beauty moguls would want to spend a little of that hard-earned cash. But there’s only so many pricey handbags, enormous mansions, and custom Bugattis a reality star can buy before they have to go in search of a new thrill. And, apparently, that new thrill, for the kardashian-Jenner family, is very pricey horses.
According to the Daily Mail, Kylie recently purchased a $200,000 pony for her two-year-old daughter with rapper Travis Scott, Stormi Webster. The white horse named Frozen arrived in Los Angeles from the Netherlands early last week and is currently being quarantined for fourteen days before its moved to a barn closer to the Kylie Cosmetics CEO’s home, the new site says. Sources tell the outlet it would have cost her an additional $7,000 to $10,000 to have the horse shipped overseas.
The horse’s breeder, Stal Wilten, appears to have confirmed the sale in an Instagram post, although the caption has since been edited to include no mention of Jenner and her daughter. On Thursday, he shared an image of the pony, writing, “#ThrowbackThursday goes to the most famous pony of
“Self-made” billionaire millionaire Kylie Jenner obviously ain’t the type of parent who worries about spoiling her kids. For daughter Stormi Webster’s second birthday this past winter, the new PMK (Pimp Mama Kylie) constructed an extravagant carnival of nightmares called “Stormi’s World” (featuring a bunch of creepy blow-up Stormi heads, a Frozen-themed ice room, and a custom-redesigned private jet interior to match). Girl doesn’t know the meaning of the word “ostentatious”. Because girl didn’t pay attention in school.
Last week Cardi B and Offset declared WAR when they presented little Kulturewith a $20,000 Birkin bag for her second birthday. NO ONE threatens Stormi’s title of “Baby Veruca Salt”, so Kylie bought her daughter a $200,000 white pony from the Netherlands named “Frozen” (like the movie!). Shipping was, of course, not included. That cost Kylie an extra $7,000-$10,000.

An unknown man attacked Spencer Grammer while she was dining outside in New York City on Friday.
The New York Daily News reports that the actress, who also happens to be one of Kelsey Grammer’s daughters, was seated on the outside patio of an East Village restaurant with a friend on July 24 when a reportedly intoxicated man walked up just before midnight, demanded to be seated, and began arguing with the eatery’s waitstaff. Grammer and her friend intervened, which is when both of them got slashed by what the Daily News calls an “unidentified sharp instrument.”
Grammer, who voices Summer on Rick and Morty and previously starred in ABC Family’s Greek, says that she and her friend were trying to de-escalate the situation.
“My friend and I did what anyone else would do in the same situation,” she says in a statement to Us Weekly. “Several others, predominantly women, were also attempting to prevent the altercation from escalating.”
“I sustained a laceration on my arm, and my friend was stabbed in the back, but thankfully he suffered no serious internal injuries,” her statement continues. “We expect to recover quickly.”

In case you missed Simone Biles’ interview with Today’s Hoda Kotb on Thursday, the gymnast spoke about her experiences with racism and anti-Blackness in the world of international athletics.
Kotb asked the Olympic gold medalist, who covers next month’s issue of Vogue, about her earliest experiences with racism, Bossip reports. Biles responded by saying that she didn’t really notice racism in a first-hand kind of way until she beat Italian gymnast Carlotta Ferlito in balance beam at the 2013 World Gymnastics Championship and Ferlito told the press that “next time we should also paint our skin black so then we can win, too.”
“I had beat her out of a medal, and she got upset,” said Biles. “And that was really the news, rather than me winning World’s.”
Biles went on to say that this kind of experience is super familiar to every Black athlete and athlete of color.
“It happens every day,” she told Kotb. “But we just have to keep going for those little ones looking up to us.”
At a live-streamed Comic-Con@Home panel on Friday, Charlize Theron recalled encountering sexism on set during the early, pre-winning the Oscar for Monster and Hollywood taking her more seriously stages of her career.
TheOld Guard star said that while filming 2003 action flick The Italian Job, she realized that everyone just assumed she wouldn’t be able to keep up with her male co-stars.
“I remember vividly getting the schedule in our pre-production, and they had scheduled me for six weeks more hard training than any of the guys,” Theron said, per IndieWire. “It was just so insulting.”
The actor went on to say that the lowered expectations and unfair treatment “put a real fire under my ass.” She continued:
I was like, ‘All right, you guys want to play this game, let’s go’… I made it a point to outdrive all of those guys. I vividly remember Mark Wahlberg, halfway through one of our training sessions, pulling over and throwing up because he was so nauseous from doing 360s… When I started my action career, it was so important to s!-->!-->
Kim ‘not a billionaire yet’ despite Kanye West’s congratulatory message, says Forbes
Kim Kardashian West is not a billionaire “just yet” despite Kanye West having congratulated her for becoming one, says Forbes.
On Wednesday, the rapper tweeted that he was “so proud” of his wife for “becoming a billionaire” after it was revealed that she had sold a stake in her beauty brand for $200m (£162m).
The reality TV star turned beauty mogul sold a 20 per cent portion of KKW Beauty to Coty Inc.

But Forbes has now said that kardashian’s billionaire status is not yet confirmed.
The financial publication writes that the Coty deal values KKW Beauty at $1bn after just three years in operation.
But Forbes estimates that kardashian has a 72 percent stake in the company, while her mother Kris Jenner owns an 8 percent stake.
That means that while it is true that kardashian runs a billion-dollar business, she is not quite a billionaire herself.
However, Forbes estimates kardashian’s net worth at $900m (£721m), so she’s not far off.
The news comes shortly after Forbes revoked the billionaire title attached to kardashian’s younger half sister, Kylie Jenner.
In a report titled: “Kylie Jenner’s Web of Lies”, published in May, the outlet references documents it obtained from Coty, which also purchased 51 per cent of Jenner’s beauty brand Kylie Cosmetics in November 2019 for $600m (£481m).
But according to Forbes, which declared Jenner the “world’s youngest self-made billionaire” in March 2019, the documents reportedly show Jenner’s business is “significantly smaller, and less profitable, than the family has spent years leading the cosmetics industry and media outlets, including Forbes, to believe”.
