This Athlete Dethrones Selena Gomez As The Most Followed Celebrity on Instagram

For the last two years Selena Gomez was the numero uno on the photo sharing app – Instagram but today the 26 year old singer and actress is no longer the most followed celebrity on Instagram.

33 year old football star Cristiano Ronaldo have overtaken Gomez on Instagram. Ronaldo has 144,391,277 followers while Gomez lagged behind with 144,341,731 followers.

With a combined 261 million followers and counting on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram combined, last year ESPN crowned Ronaldo the most famous athlete on the planet.

However, Gomez in her last Instagram post on 21 September said that she has taken a break from social media.

“Taking a social media break. Again,” she wrote on Instagram. “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.”

It is reported that Gomez is in a mental health facility.
