Soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo takes over the top spot.
Selena Gomez is no longer the most-followed person on Instagram after being knocked out of the top spot by soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.
As of Monday morning (Oct. 29), the soccer star has 144,320,476 followers on the social media platform, while Gomez, who has held the title for more than two years, now trails him at 144,312,745 Instagram followers.
It’s no surprise that Ronaldo’s ascent to the top spot occurred while Gomez herself is unplugged from technology. In her last Instagram post from Sept. 23, the “Wolves” singer announced that she would be “taking a social media break.”
