Selena Gomez is no longer the most followed person on Instagram

Much-loved actress and singer Selena Gomez is no longer the most followed person on Instagram.

It’s been revealed that the 26-year-old has been dethroned of the social media honour by Portugese footballer Cristiano Ronaldo.

The father of four has shot to the top of the photo sharing platform with a whopping 144.5 million followers, edging past Gomez’s 144.3 million fans.


It comes after the pop singer announced she would be taking a break from social media, with her last photo posted on September 24.

“Taking a social media break. Again,” Gomez wrote.

“As much as I am grateful for the voice that social media gives each of us, I am equally grateful to be able to step back and live my life present to the moment I have been given. Kindness and encouragement only for a bit! Just remember- negative comments can hurt anybody’s feelings.”

Ronaldo frequently posts on Instagram, sharing photos of his family, workout routines and football.
