Kylie Jenner defends her $5K donation to makeup artist’s GoFundMe

Kylie Jenner has been forced to put out a statement after she came under fire for asking fans to donate to makeup artist Samuel Rauda’s GoFundMe. The major criticism she faced was that she had only given $5,000 when the GoFundMe target was $120,000.

Some fans are of the opinion that Kylie Jenner could singlehandedly offset the makeup artist’s medical bills.

Also, many who criticised her had believed that Rauda was her makeup artist and friend.

However, the Billionaire make-up mogul has addressed the issue in her Instagram Story. First, she clarified that the makeup artist was not her personal employee and neither was he her friend.

“Sam isn’t my makeup artist and unfortunately we don’t have a personal relationship anymore but I have worked with him a few years ago and think he’s the sweetest,”  she wrote.

Additionally, she claimed that the original goal when she donated was $10,000 and she had completed it with hers. “They had already raised $6K so I put in $5K to reach their original goal and thought I’d post on my stories to gain more awareness if anyone felt so compelled to share or donate,” Kylie Jenner added.

The new goal of Rauda’s GoFundMe was changed to $120,000 and it has gotten to $100,000. Jenner said that she didn’t understand the outrage because the family had reached out to her through her personal makeup artist Ariel and they were “very appreciative of all the donations, prayers and love towards Sam“.

Samuel Rauda was involved in a ‘serious car accident’, Capital Xtra says, but he is recovering and needed to raise money for his medical expenses. He has an Instagram account with 273K followers and a YouTube page with over 80K subscribers.

American singer Bebe Rexha came to Kylie Jenner’s defence as well during the criticism and she too caught a bit of fire as well.

  9. I think she was only trying to help. Most people just believe that because you have money, you would have no need for it. Annoying entitlement mentality!
