Kylie Jenner tops list of 20 biggest Instagram earners

Reality TV star knocks singer Selena Gomez off No. 1 spot with £760,000 per sponsored post

Reality TV star Kylie Jenner is this year’s top earner on Instagram, according to the latest rich list for the social network.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star reportedly makes around $1m (£760,000) per sponsored post. Her sisters Kim Kardashian West and Kendall Jenner are in fourth and tenth place respectively in the earnings list.

Model and mother-of-one Jenner knocked 2017 winner Selena Gomez into second place, reports the BBC, which adds that “singers Beyonce and Justin Bieber, actor Dwayne Johnson and footballers Neymar and Cristiano Ronaldo also made the top ten”.

David Beckham was the highest-earning Briton on the list, compiled by UK-based marketing firm Hopper HQ, earning an average of £228,200 per sponsorsed post.

Despite topping the list, Jenner, 20, is still a long way off having the most followers - an accolade that goes to Gomez, who has close to 136 million followers. Jenner has around 111 million.
