The 26-year-old singer isn’t very far behind Ronaldo with a total of 144,312,745 followers on the social media platform. Gomez is currently taking a break from all social media platforms, so it’s possible the former Disney star doesn’t mind giving up the title.

Earlier this month, news broke that Gomez had entered a mental health center, after multiple hospitalizations. Just days before her mental breakdown happened, she took to social media to announce her break, by saying,”taking a social media break. Again. 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. Obvi.”


Gomez first earned her title as Instagram’s most followed person back in 2016 — beating out her BFF, Taylor Swift. Currently Ariana Grande sits as the third most followed person on the social media platform with 132 million followers.
