Selena Gomez began her career as an actress and singer when she was a child. She has worked hard over the years to become one of the most famous names in Hollywood. She has sold millions of albums, and 341 million people follow her on Instagram, making her one of the most popular people on the site. So how has Selena Gomez’s success changed her net worth?
It’s easy to think that she’s only rich because she sings and dances, but that’s not really the case. Many people don’t know that Gomez has her own cooking show and line of makeup. All of these things, as well as other projects, add up to her huge celebrity net worth.

Quick View of Breakup History
In 2008, Selena was with Nick Jonas for a short time. Selena is also known for her on-again, off-again relationship with Justin Bieber, who is also a pop star. Selena was reportedly so stressed out by their relationship that she had to go to a rehab center. From December 2010 to November 2012, they had a serious relationship. They broke up but then got back together.
This cycle happened again in 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2017. They’re said to have ended their relationship for good in March 2018. Gomez had a serious relationship with The Weeknd from January 2017 to October 2017. The Weeknd’s 2018 album My Dear Melancholy, which came out in March, talks about Gomez several times.
The Detailed History of Selena Gomez’s Breakup
People still enjoy discussing the time when Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber dated, despite the fact that (1) they split up years ago, (2) they’ve both completely moved on, and (3) he’s now married to Hailey Baldwin Bieber. That’s it, Jelena’s done!
And honestly, people still clinging to that unsinkable ship might be interested to know that Sel has dated more than one person in her life, including such wild-card celebrities as Orlando “They’re Taking the Hobbits to Isengard” Bloom (we forgot about this relationship too, don’t worry), Taylor Lautner in his peak sexy Twilight wolf years, and the one and only Nick Jonas. Let’s reminisce for a little, shall we?
NICK JONAS: 2008
True, but only for a brief period of time. In 2008, Selena dated Nick and appeared in his “Burnin’ Up” music video.
TAYLOR LAUTNER: 2009
Taylor and Selena dated briefly after meeting while filming Ramona and Beezus and Twilight: New Moon, respectively. However, the public’s interest in their romance ruined their chemistry.
JUSTIN BIEBER: DECEMBER 2010 TO APRIL 2014
Justin and Selena were photographed having pancakes at IHOP in 2010. Selena told Us Weekly, “It was simply pancakes.” There aren’t just pancakes. The couple spent the following few years avoiding breakup rumors and hitting red carpets, including Katy Perry: Part of Me. Katy Perry’s documentary says love more than pancakes.
Things were pretty up and down for these two, but in May 2013, they won at the Billboard Music Awards. Not that important, except that Taylor Swift’s disgusted face was caught on camera when she saw them kissing backstage
Even though Sel’s friends didn’t like it, Jelena kept dating on and off until April 2014, when they got into a fight at Coachella after Selena allegedly found Kylie Jenner’s photos on Justin’s phone. At the time, tabloids said Selena “flipped out” and they broke up for a short time.
ORLANDO BLOOM: APRIL 2014
After supposedly flirting at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, it was rumored that Selena and Orlando hooked up to make Miranda Kerr and Justin Bieber jealous.
Selena and Elf Bae Orlando denied their relationship after they were spotted “hanging outside” of a Chelsea Handler show, but wait until you hear what happened next:
JUSTIN BIEBER: JUNE 2014 TO OCTOBER 2014
A few months later, Justin made it plain that he and Selena were back together by posting THIS non-dramatic black-and-white photo with the message “Our love is Unconditional.” Like, we get it, Justin. Settle down.
The following month (July), Orlando was spotted punching Justin in Ibiza and then Justin uploaded and erased a photo of Miranda looking super gorgeous on Instagram. You! Cannot! Make! This! Material! Up!
Selena and Justin were able to maintain their relationship until October when tabloids stated that Justin’s “secret liaisons” with Kendall Jenner led to their separation.
NIALL HORAN: DECEMBER 2015
Niall Horan of One Direction has been linked to Selena after they were photographed on a date at the Santa Monica pier. Oh, and they were also observed “kissing, cuddling, and dancing close together” during Jenna Dewan-35th Tatum’s birthday celebration.
Selena friend-zoned Niall when Entertainment Tonight questioned if they were dating, with the response, “Oh my gosh! No. I have always loved him. He’s incredible.” To be fair, they do go back rather far! Here they are in 2013 dangling in front of all these rumors.
THE WEEKND: JANUARY 2017 TO OCTOBER 2017
The internet exploded when Selena and The Weeknd were photographed kissing next to some garbage in Santa Monica. The pair spent the subsequent months traveling to Italy and making out on a yacht, and they finally made their Instagram account public in April 2017, just in time for Coachella:
Selena underwent a kidney transplant in September, and despite People’s claims that The Weeknd was “one of her strongest supporters,” they broke up the following month. A source told People, “She and Abel have been discussing their relationship for some months. It has been difficult with him on tour and her filming in New York. That was difficult for them.” This person continued, “It’s been difficult for them to see that this is where things were headed, and it’s been difficult for months.”
JUSTIN BIEBER: OCTOBER 2017 TO MARCH 2018
Well, this individual has returned. One day prior to Selena’s separation from The Weeknd, Justin and Selena were spotted having breakfast and attending a church service, and they spent no time in making it plain they were back together. We’re discussing public bike rides and pucker-ups at hockey games, the entire PR package. Unfortunately, March 2018 arrived, and the pair separated once more. And we all know how this narrative concludes: Justin marries Hailey Baldwin and Selena releases two caustic breakup songs about him.
NIALL HORAN (AGAIN…MAYBE): OCTOBER 2019
Selena was caught many times with Niall Horan, and despite the fact that nothing was official, the internet melted down. AGAIN. Even though they were socializing in a group, look at his arm around her!
…CHRIS EVANS??: OCTOBER 2021
Okay, I don’t know if this will work, BUT! Late last year, there were a lot of rumors going around about Chris Evans and Selena.
What’s the proof? Selena and Chris were seen hanging out together in Los Angeles (leaving a studio, a restaurant, etc.), and Chris is one of more than 200 million people who follow Selena on Instagram. But the rumors stopped spreading when it was proven that Chris is dating Portuguese actor Alba Baptista. Okay, plot twist! Selena also recently hinted at who she was dating on TikTok where she told the camera directly, “No, I’m fine. I don’t mind being single at all, it’s a thing. It’s alright.” She then moved the camera to her four friends, who were all couples and looking very in love.
