Hopper HQ had started publishing a list of highest-earning stars in 2017 after speaking with celebrities and social media influencers to determine how much they were being paid, as well as speaking with advertisers to estimate how much could be charged for a post.
Last week, Johnson was ranked on top of the Instagram rich list, by another publication. Johnson reportedly makes more than $1 million per paid post on the social media platform. This was the first time in four years that either a Kardashian or a Jenner hadn’t dominated the list.
