Celebrities Who Took a Break From Social Media: Kim Kardashian, Selena Gomez and More

For some celebrities, the best way to find peace is to take a hiatus from cyberspace, where total chaos reigns.

Stars including Selena Gomez, Kim Kardashian and Sarah Hyland have taken breaks from social media in order to refresh their minds, their mentions and their search history.

The “Lose You to Love Me” singer, who at one point was the most followed person on Instagram, is a huge fan of stepping away from the internet when trolls get her down.

“I have not, personally, in two years had any social media on my phone,” she said during an Instagram Live in October 2020. “I use the platform, I make sure I approve and write things I want to write, but I don’t look at it and it’s not on my phone.”

Even Kardashian has taken brief breaks from the app. After she was robbed at gunpoint in Paris in October 2016, she didn’t return to her accounts for three months.
