Move over, Kylie Jenner – Kim Kardashian West is on her way to reaching billionaire status.

The reality star and business woman is on track to earning the title after selling a 20% stake in her cosmetic line, KKW Beauty, to global beauty brand, Coty, in a $200 million deal.

According to Billboard, Kardashian West is not officially a billionaire, but her makeup and fragrance company are now valued at $1 billion as a result of the deal. Forbes clarified the media mogul is worth $900 million.

Still, Kardashian West’s husband, Kanye West, championed his wealthy wife on Twitter writing, “I am so proud of my beautiful wife Kim Kardashian West for officially becoming a billionaire.”

“You’ve weathered the craziest storms and now God is shining on you and our family,” he said, adding, “So blessed this is still life / So I made you this still life. We love you so much.”

While Kanye celebrated with an artistic photo of vegetables and flowers, Kim opted for a fiery new look instead.

The reality star stunned fans when she debuted bright red hair on Monday. Many fans assumed it was a wig, but her hairstylist Chris Appleton quickly set the record straight.

"Red head 🍒 it’s NOT a wig before you start with that s---," Appleton joked on Instagram with a few photos of Kardashian West’s new ‘do.

"Kim is a trendsetter and not afraid of doing something new. We have done the blonde and the pink before and red was unexpected. I love that about Kim," Appleton told People.

He revealed they were inspired by Kardashian West’s red cherry wig for the 2019 KKW Beauty “So Fire” collection shoot.

"We felt a red vibe. I worked with Kim's skin tone to create red that suits her and that’s why I left the darker root," Appleton continued.

The power couple also celebrated North’s 7th birthday party with a Western-theme at their ranch in Cody, Wyoming.

North was joined by her friends and family as they rode horses and raced go-karts on the private track. The eldest daughter also showed off her cowboy boots and her cowgirl hat-shaped cake.

"Happy 7th Birthday to my first born baby North! I can’t believe you are 7," Kardashian posted on Instagram.. "Crazy how time has flown by so fast like this! You are everything and more than I ever dreamed of! The most stylist creative Gemini performer ever! I love you to your alien planet and back!"

Kardashian West’s billionaire milestone comes amid the Forbes controversy that stripped makeup mogul Kylie Jenner of her billionaire status and accused her of lying about her tax returns in order to boost her net worth and make herself seem richer than she was.
