Kylie has been crowned Instagram’s richest star of 2018

bbc.com: Remember when Kylie Jenner was rumoured to have killed Snapchat? Well, it looks like she’s found her lane with Instagram, as the star has topped a rich list by commanding around $1 million (£760,000) per post.

The Kylie Cosmetics star can reportedly earn herself the hefty amount of cash on the social media site, beating her older sister Kim Kardashian by $280,000 (£213,000).

Despite having some time away from the cameras, while looking after her newborn daughter Stormi, Kylie has still managed to knock off last year’s highest earner – Selena Gomez.

But both of them beat footballer Cristiano Ronaldo and the likes of Beyonce and Dwayne Johnson.

Last year, Kylie was fourth on the list and below her sister Kim – earning herself less than half of what she can make now on $400,000 (£304,000).

We’re not so sure that Kim, 37, will be too bothered as she was reportedly cashing in $1 million per minute thanks to her perfume sales recently and before that, it was her Kimojis.

The top 10 in the 2018 Celebrity Instagram Rich List are:

1.Kylie Jenner – 110 million – $1 million per post
2.Selena Gomez – 138 million followers – $800,000 per post (£608,000)
3.Cristiano Ronaldo – 133 million followers – $750,000 per post (£570,000)

Mike Bandar, co-founder of HopperHQ.com, who released the list, said: ‘I’m not surprised that Kylie Jenner has topped this year’s list, as far as social media marketing goes, she has it down to a tee. Kylie was introduced to the public through her family’s reality show, but she has forged her own billion-dollar career and harnessed the power of Instagram to build a global, loyal, engaged following that brands are willing to pay top dollar for!’
