Instead it is soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo. 

Who knew!? 


Both stars have 144.3 million insta followers, but Ronaldo has surpassed her by about 8 thousand. 

It comes as Gomez has taken a self-imposed break from social media, as she instead turns her focus to self-care after a public mental health battle. 

“Taking a social media break. Again,” she posted last month.

“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.”

Selena was the most followed celebrity for over two years.
