Ariana Grande has dethroned Selena Gomez as the most followed woman on Instagram, but the numbers are still close.

According to Billboard, the 25-year-old star has a total of 146,286,173 followers, while the 'Bad Liar' singer has only fallen slightly behind with 146,267,801.

'7 Rings' hitmaker reportedly gained 13 million more followers on Instagram over the last four months, which coincides with the release of her latest album 'Thank U, Next', as well as her split from former fiancé Pete Davidson in October.

But the pair's impressive totals are still eclipsed by that of soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, who overtook Selena in October to be the most followed person on the photo-sharing app.
