Did Kim Kardashian Buy Instagram Likes?

14 Jul 2015

The reality star gets over 3 million followers overnight

Looks like ‘Queen of Selfies’ Kim Kardashian is threatened by lil sister Kylie Jenner!

Kim recently took to her Twitter to share news that she “woke up to over 40 million Instagram followers,” which was a jump of roughly 3 million in just over one week, according to reports on Radar Online. But according to rumours, the followers were apparently bought.

Kim had come under fire in December as well when Instagram’s purge of fake accounts showed that she had more than 1.3 million fake followers.

A source said, “Kim has been really bothered by the fact that some of her family members, specifically Kendall, are catching up to her in terms of social media followers.”

In July, Kendall got more likes on a photo in a single day than Kim and Kanye West’s wedding photo. She has also added an additional 3 million followers on Instagram herself, going from 29 million followers at the beginning of the month to almost 32 million on the day of Kim’s record.
