As we celebrate Selena, let’s take a look at her work over the years, specifically through her net worth, which is so much higher than you’d think!

What is Selena Gomez’s net worth?

According to, Selena is worth a staggering $800 million, the highest of her fellow Disney alumni. It even eclipses her BFF Taylor Swift’s net worth, currently at a still massive $600 million (although that’s before residuals from The Eras Tour start rolling in).

The total comes not only courtesy of her career as an actress and singer-songwriter, but also as a producer, entrepreneur, beauty mogul, mental health advocate, lucrative endorsements, and her social media fame.

What contributes to Selena Gomez’s net worth?

Acting has been a large contributor to Selena’s fame, given she made her screen debut at the age of ten on Barney & Friends. Roles in Hannah Montana, Wizards of Waverly Place, Another Cinderella Story, and other Disney entries made her a star.
