Here’s a breakdown of how Selena got her money:
Selena got her start on Barney and Friends, alongside her superstar best friend Demi Lovato in 2001. She had small roles in movies such as Spy Kids 3D:Game Over, and the made-for-TV-movie Walker Texas Ranger. It wasn’t until her breakthrough role as Alex on Disney Channel’s Wizard’s of Waverly Place in 2007 did Gomez start achieving mainstream success. The Wizards of Waverly Place: The Movie television premiere became Disney channel’s second most viewed film-premiere after High School Musical 2, and won a second consecutive Emmy award for “Outstanding Children’s Program.” Her TV shows have earned her a net worth of $2,710,000.

Wizards of Waverly Place ended its successful run on Disney channel after four seasons. Gomez also announced that Selena Gomez & the Scene were in an ongoing hiatus, so she would focus on her film career.
In 2012, Gomez starred alongside Adam Sandler in Hotel Transylvannia, earning $358.4 million in box office sales. Next, she starred in the controversial film Spring Breakers with James Franco, earning her a more mature reputation and $31.7 million in box office sales.
