Cristiano Ronaldo Makes a Stupid Amount of Money For His Paid Instagram Posts
This number might make you angry.
We already know the Cristiano Ronaldo made beaucoup bucks last year—93 million of them, to be exact. That’s all well and good, as the Real Madrid megastar is ridiculously talented. But the amount he makes off of a single Instagram pic is actually irritating.
According to data compiled by Hopper, Ronaldo makes approximately $400,000 every time he posts one of these:
In other words, the man makes enough to buy a house every time he throws on a branded T-shirt snaps a selfie for his 103 million followers. And he doesn’t even top “Instagram’s Rich List.”
The crown goes to Selena Gomez, who gets a $550,000-check cut every time she posts sponsored content. The Kardashian clan takes four of the ten spots, while Lebron James brings up the rear with a measly $120,000 per post.

Happy Bday to my brother @teamswish!! Not a day goes by and I don't think of you kid! Proud of the man you've become over the years. Since day 1 when you were coming to Akron when u were still in HS to work with me I've always believed in you. Quite frankly more than u believed in yourself at times and I've never wavered cause i knew what you were all about. Loyal, caring, driven, misunderstood, passionate, trustworthy, etc etc etc. Most importantly TRUE!! Enjoy your day to the fullest and know i can't wait to get back to work on that court with u as my wing backcourt mate!! Let's go. #Automatic #Worrkkkk #Swisher #RocketLauncher #Champion
Even with all that wealth, Ronaldo still can’t get a decent bronze bust of his head made properly.
