Make-up mogul Kylie Jenner recently received a lot of criticism from netizens after she asked her followers to donate money to help her make-up artist Samuel Rauda who recently met with an accident. According to Fox News, while she herself donated $5000 despite her high income, she posted a request for her fans to contribute a sum total of $60,000 for Samuel’s treatment. The Keeping Up With Kardashian’s star who was declared as the youngest billionaire ever by Forbes, took to her Instagram Story on Monday to clarify that she was not pressing her fans to pay for Samuel’s emergency surgeries.
In Kylie Jenner’s latest Instagram story, she wrote it was very important for her to clear up the false narrative that she had asked fans for money and she was not paying for makeup artist’s bills. She wrote she did not have any professional relationship with Samuel anymore and they worked together years ago. After learning about Sameul’s accident through her current makeup artist and friend Ariel, she was compelled to visit his ‘gofundme’ page which was set at 10k and they had already raised 6k so she added her 5k to reach their original goal. She thought of posting it to her stories to gain more awareness and if anyone would like to donate but she doesn’t know how it became so twisted. She ended by saying Sam’s family had reached out to Ariel and they were very appreciative of all donations, prayers, and love towards Sam.
