July 22 marks a major milestone for Selena Gomez: her 25th birthday. The multi-talented singer, dancer and actress certainly has a lot to celebrate as she hits the quarter-century mark, including a successful Netflix show and the new buzzed-about single “Bad Liar.”
When she turned 24, Gomez was in the midst of her Revival tour, which landed her poolside in Jakarta, Indonesia. She hasn’t publicly revealed party plans for this year, but it’s likely that her boyfriend, The Weeknd, will do something special for her.
Take a look at Selena Gomez’s net worth as the wealthy and influential woman enters her mid-20s.
Selena Gomez Net Worth: $50 Million
Selena Gomez’s age has never gotten in the way of her career. Named after slain Tejano singer Selena Quintanilla, the child actor landed her first gig in 2002, when she played Gianna on “Barney & Friends.”
She’s remained in the spotlight ever since, constantly impressing fans with her seemingly endless talents. Life hasn’t been without struggles for Gomez, as she was diagnosed with lupus in 2013. The chronic illness forces her to intermittently take time away from the spotlight, but she always bounces back.
Gomez has served as a Pantene spokesperson since 2015, earning $3 million per year for her work, according to E! News. In Dec. 2016, Page Six reported that she also signed a $10 million deal with Coach to serve as the face of the luxury handbag brand and design her own collection.
All this success has brought Selena Gomez’s net worth to $50 million. Despite the size of her fortune, the down-to-earth star lives rather modestly for her income bracket. In early 2017, she purchased a three-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom Studio City, Calif., home for $2.25 million.
Selena Gomez Music
Despite Selena Gomez’s age, she’s already an accomplished musical artist. Released in 2016, her latest album, “Revival,” has sold more than one million copies. The record generated several hit singles, including “Hands to Myself,” “Same Old Love,” “Good for You” and “Kill Em With Kindness,” which have been downloaded more than 6.5 million times.
After releasing the album, Gomez embarked on her Revival tour, donating a portion of the proceeds from each ticket to the Alliance for Lupus Research. Gomez had to cut the world tour short, however, due to a lupus flair up that left her unable to perform.
Before she was a solo artist, the “It Ain’t Me” singer honed her performance skills as part of a band. Selena Gomez & the Scene have since split, but made several hits together. The group’s three albums, “When the Sun Goes Down,” “A Year Without Rain” and “Kiss & Tell,” each sold 500,000 copies.

’13 Reasons Why’ and Other Selena Gomez Film Projects
Singing and dancing aren’t Gomez’s only talents; she’s also an accomplished actress. Some of her biggest films include “Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising,” “Monte Carlo” and the “Hotel Transylvania” franchise. Of course, not every Selena Gomez movie has been a hit. In 2013, she starred opposite Ethan Hawke in the film “The Getaway,” which was a huge summer box office flop.
Gomez has also continued with television work since her “Barney and Friends” days. She starred in the Disney Channel’s “Wizards of Waverly Place” and has been known to surprise audiences with guest spots on popular shows like “Inside Amy Schumer.”
Her latest project, “13 Reasons Why,” puts Gomez behind the camera. She’s an executive producer on the Netflix original series. Not surprisingly, the show’s official soundtrack features Selena Gomez music.
Selena Gomez Relationships
When it comes to dating, most people have a type, and Selena Gomez is definitely into rich and famous Canadian musicians. The star has been dating The Weeknd since at least January 2017, when TMZ caught the pair kissing outside a Santa Monica, Calif., restaurant.
The Selena Gomez/The Weeknd relationship came as a surprise to many, considering he split from model Bella Hadid in November 2016. Gomez and Hadid have many mutual friends, including singer Taylor Swift. Gomez and The Weeknd seem to have found happiness and plenty of things in common, including their bank account balances: The Weeknd’s net worth is also $50 million.
Before The Weeknd, there was Justin Bieber. Deemed “Jelena” by fans, Gomez dated Bieber on and off from 2009 to 2016. Gomez also had a brief relationship with DJ Zedd.

Selena Gomez Instagram
No one does Instagram like Selena Gomez. She has the largest Instagram following in the world, with 123 million followers as of July 11, 2017.
Selena Gomez’s net worth gets a boost from her epic following. She earns $550,000 per sponsored Instagram spot, according to the Instagram Rich List 2017, which is released by U.K.-based Instagram planner and scheduling tool Hopper HQ.
Her Instagram content ranges from candid snaps that offer a glimpse at her personal life to teasers promoting her latest projects. Every post garners at least one million likes, and those featuring Selena Gomez and The Weeknd are especially popular.
Perhaps almost as intriguing to fans is the couple hundred people Gomez follows — and those she unfollows. In March, Gomez and The Weeknd made headlines when they simultaneously unfollowed Bella Hadid.
