In case you missed it, the almost-billionaire found herself in hot water earlier this week over a donation controversy. Sam Rauda, a makeup artist who worked with the beauty mogul a few years ago, has recently undergone surgery following an accident. As a result, his family set up a GoFundMe with a goal of USD10K to “help cover the cost of his medical expenses and what’s to come.”

Following the announcement of the fundraiser, however, allegations flooded in against Jenner, claiming that she must be underpaying her staff if his family was unable to pay for the bill. Further, critics asserted that Jenner should be footing the bill herself considering her net worth.

Since then, Jenner has offered her perspective via Instagram Stories as of March 22, stating “I feel it’s important for me to clear up this false narrative that I’ve asked fans for money and am not paying for my makeup artist’s medical bills. 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.”

“I saw my current makeup artist and friend Ariel post about Sam’s accident and his family’s gofundme and I called Ariel immediately to see what happened to Sam. After learning in more detail about the accident it compelled me to visit his gofundme which was set to 10K. They had already raised 6K so I put it in 5K to reach their original goal and thought I’d post on my stories to gain more awareness if anyone also felt compelled to share or donate,” she continues. “I don’t know how all of this got so twisted but his family has reached out through Ariel and are very appreciative of all the donations, prayers, and love towards Sam.”

She then added: “Anyone that knows me knows that I do things from the heart and I try to be helpful whenever I can be. Let’s all stay positive and keep Sam, his family, and anyone you know who is going through a difficult time in our prayers. I hope you have a beautiful day and let’s encourage each other to help.”
