Justin Bieber dethrones Kendall Jenner as the queen of Instagram -- with a little help from Selena Gomez!
Justin Bieber is the new King of Instagram, as his steamy throwback pic with ex Selena Gomez has overthrown Kendall Jenner's reigning snap.
Although Bieber and Gomez ended their relationship in 2014, it seems the Internet still has not gotten over "Jelena." The singer's Instagram pic, posted in March, features the young couple locking lips, and has captured the hearts of millions—literally. Receiving about 3,569,000 likes since it was first posted, Bieber's snap is currently ahead of Jenner's photo by roughly 7,000 likes, including the one that really matters—a stamp of approval in the form of a double tap from Selena Gomez.
