Pop star Selena Gomez has revealed she is completely deleted Instagram from her phone in an attempt to get away from the nasty trolls.

The 26-year-old, who has been one of the most followed accounts on the site, with 152 million of fans say they have ditched the app for her mental health, reports The Sun.

The former Disney star is said to be the social media site was “dangerous” and “unhealthy”, particularly to young people who spend a lot of time on it.

In an effort to lessen the impact on her life, Gomez has been removed from the app from her mobile phone and uses someone else’s phone if they want to post something.

It is as if Instagram boss, Adam Mosseri, said he was “disappointed” to hear of Gomez, and had been removed from the app, but it also said that Gomez is not your typical Instagram user. “She’s got more than a 100 million followers, it’s a whole different world,” Mosseri said.

Speaking with US radio host Ryan Seacrest and Kelly Ripa earlier this week, Gomez said on Instagram “, it would make me feel depressed.”

“It wouldn’t be a very good about me and look at my body differently.

“I’ve been using it a lot, but I think it’s really unhealthy for young people, including myself, have to spend all of their time to ensure that all of these comments and let them in.”

Gomez, who had a kidney transplant in march of 2017, as previously, it is revealed that her assistant was now in charge of her account.

The singer and actress said that she was going to get obsessed with all the trolls and negative comments out there, and it was overwhelming.

Speaking to The New York Times back in 2017, she said, “I have to delete the app from my phone at least once a week.

“It’s as if they [the trolls] you want to cut to your soul.

“Now, imagine that all of the insecurities that you already feel about yourself, and having someone write a paragraph pointing out every little thing, even if it’s just physical.”

In that same year, Gomez took a break from the spotlight to focus on her mental health, while in a rehab facility, where they will not be on the phone for up to 90 days.

While he was speaking at the Cannes film festival last month, Gomez said, is that while Instagram is also a useful platform, said that it “scared” her, the young people were so engaged with it.

She said, “But for my generation in particular, social media is a terrible thing.

“It is selfish — I don’t mean to be selfish, that’s rude, but it is very dangerous for you.”
