Selena Gomez Net Worth: $60M
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.” The star has remained in the spotlight ever since, constantly impressing fans with her seemingly endless talents.
But life hasn’t been without its struggles for Gomez. The actress was diagnosed with lupus in 2013, which has caused her to intermittently take time away from the spotlight between projects. Last year, Gomez revealed to fans on Instagram that she had disappeared from appearances for some time in order to recover from receiving a kidney transplant.
But even with her illness, the star has remained a huge success, having scored multiple endorsement deals. Gomez has served as a Pantene spokesperson since 2015, earning $3 million per year for her work, according to E! News. In December 2016, Gomez also signed a $10 million deal with Coach to serve as the face of the luxury handbag brand and design her own collection. The star recently signed on to collaborate with shoe company Puma for more than $30 million.
All this success has brought Selena Gomez’s net worth to $60 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 $2.249 million, which she recently put up for sale.

Selena Gomez Music
Despite Selena Gomez’s age, she’s already an accomplished musical artist. Released in 2015, her latest album, “Revival,” cinched the No.1 spot on the U.S. album sales chart during its opening week release, according to Variety. The record generated several hit singles, including “Hands to Myself,” “Same Old Love,” “Good for You” and “Kill Em With Kindness.”
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 flare-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 more than 700,000 copies.
