Selena Gomez is no longer the most followed person on Instagram. The 26-year-old, who held the honour for two years, has now been pushed to the second place by football star Cristiano Ronaldo. A report by Elle announced the shift in rankings a few hours ago, noting that Selena Gomez had 144,308,767 followers to Cristiano Ronaldo's 144,309,204.

The numbers have been neck-to-neck at around 144 million each for the last few months now, but it seems like the Juventus star has come out ahead after Selena announced she was taking a social media break last month.

Selena's last Instagram post was shared on September 24, where she announced that she is taking a break from social media. "Update: 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," she wrote.

On the other hand, Cristiano Ronaldo's latest Instagram post was shared only nine hours ago, and has since collected over 4 million 'likes'.

"I'm not on the Internet," she told Elle last month. "I haven't been on the internet in months. I don't have my password for Instagram."
