The American actress, singer and songwriter Selena Marie Gomez may be young, but that has done nothing to stop her from already enjoying considerable success in the entertainment industry – a career that has earned Gomez and estimated net worth of $60 million. Best known for her earliest performances in various “Disney Channel” series, Selena Gomez made the transition from child actress to adult performer with relative ease. Having recently released her debut solo album, “Come & Get It”, Gomez has proven herself to be a successful singer capable of chart-topping performances – and as her career continues, Selena Gomez’s net worth seems certain to continue growing.
Selena Gomez Net Worth $60 Million
Born on 22 July 1992 in the city of Grand Prairie in Texas, USA, Selena Gomez did not have the easiest upbringing – indeed, the actress and singer has been quoted saying that she grew up to constant frustration about her parents’ divorce, and about her inability to do anything to help her mother provide for them. Perhaps it was this frustration that spurred Gomez on to pursue her very first acting role at the young age of ten – in 2002, the future celebrity took part in auditions for the popular “ PBS Kids” children’s television series “Barney & Friends”. It was there that Selena Gomez first met her long-standing friend and fellow actress and singer, Demi Lovato, and the two would go on to appear together on “Barney & Friends”. By the time Gomez departed from the show in 2004, she had already made a name for herself as a talented child actress, and the road to future projects had been paved.
Over the next couple of years, Selena Gomez would continue to appear in various television and cinema productions, including a minor role in the 2003 sci-fi adventure film “Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over” alongside Antonio Banderas and Sylvester Stallone. Gomez would finally gain widespread recognition for her talent in 2007, having made a number of successful appearances on the “Disney Channel” musical comedy series “Hannah Montana” opposite lead actress Miley Cyrus. This performance landed Selena Gomez a role as the lead of her own series, “Wizards of Waverly Place”, which proved a massive success and won three Primetime Emmy Awards. The series went on until 2012, becoming one of the most viewed “Disney Channel” original series – something that certainly did wonders for Gomez’s popularity and net worth alike. Moreover, it allowed Selena Gomez the liberty of picking her own projects – and the rising star elected to focus on her budding music career, releasing her first solo album in 2013.
How rich is Selena Gomez? At the moment, Gomez’s net worth is believed to reach up to $60 million. Gomez owes most of this considerable amount to her career as an actress, and recently – to her success as a singer. Selena Gomez’s most recent album, the 2013 “Stars Dance”, reached #1 on the US Billboard 200 chart on debut, her greatest success to date.
Today, Selena Gomez continues to perform, having recently stated her intention to stop focusing on just one aspect of her career at a time – instead deciding to pursue acting and singing at the same time. Until recently, Gomez was in a relationship with the scandalous young singer Justin Bieber, but the two parted ways in 2012.
