[Editor's note on Oct. 11, 2018: This story, originally written Feb. 21, 2017 and updated June 9, 2017 and Feb. 12, 2018, has been updated once more with the news that Gomez's house is under contract.]

Pop singer Selena Gomez's Fort Worth mansion might finally have a new buyer. The five bedroom, six-and-a-half bathroom home priced over $3 million, then reduced at least once, was more recently for sale for $2.7 million via Christie's International Real Estate.

According to, the home is under contract as of early October 2018 after being on and off the market for a few years. Online, the home is marked as "no longer available."

But you still want to see it, don't you? The mansion looks like it belongs on a golf course in California, with its lush, green lawns and spacious rooms fit for a celebrity.

Here's the outdoor seating area at Selena Gomez's Fort Worth home, which is under contract as of early October 2018.

Gomez's home is located in Montserrat, a gated community in southwest Fort Worth that includes homes priced in the $200,000s, according to Zillow.

Gomez's 10,000-square-foot abode at 4649 Saint Laurent Court is surely on the upper end of the neighborhood. The home is situated on 1.5 acres and has a tennis court, putting green, outdoor kitchen and pool. It was built in 2005.

Like cars? Selena Gomez's garage will hold 8 of them.

The home had previously been available but shared in secret "because of her famous name and security concerns," noted Candy Evans of Candy's Dirt in early 2017.

The final sale price is not yet available.

Selena Gomez's home in Fort Worth, built in 2005, is 10,000 square feet.

Gomez, of course, was born in Grand Prairie. In fact, she visited her childhood home in Grand Prairie in January, taking a picture on the stoop. The Instagram photo was liked by 8.4 million people.

The "Hands to Myself" singer appeared on Barney & Friends as a child, as many young Dallas-Fort Worth actors do. She also starred on Disney showWizards of Waverly Place and famously dated fellow pop singer Justin Bieber for several years. Her singing career has included sultry singles such as "Come and Get It" and "Good for You."

Here's the footprint of Selena Gomez's Fort Worth mansion. It's situated on 1.5 acres.

She was the first celebrity to hit 100 million Instagram followers — which seems so long ago, now that she's nearing a whopping 150 million followers.

Gomez took her Texas home off the market temporarily in 2017, PageSix reports, and purchased a California mansion for $2.25 million the same year.

More recently, TMZ and People report that Gomez is being treated for emotional issues.

Inside Selena Gomez's Luxurious Homes In California And Texas

With a net worth hovering around $60 million, it's no surprise that Selena Gomez is living it up in luxurious homes in Texas and California.

Selena Gomez isn't even thirty and has lived in and flipped an incredible amount of gorgeous homes. The hot popstar is secretive about where she spends her time and rarely shows her home on social media. So, we don't know exactly where she's shacking up at the moment. But we do know a lot about her recent properties. And some of them are so spectacular that even Justin Bieber would be jealous.

Selena has owned homes all over the Greater Los Angeles area including Studio City and Calabasas. But she's also owned a property in Forth Worth, Texas, not far from where she was born and raised. With a net worth hovering around $60 million, according to Business Insider, it's no surprise that Selena's living it up.

Without further ado, here's an inside look at Selena Gomez's luxurious homes in California and Texas.

13 Selena Gomez Made Some Major Moves Thanks To Her Calabasas Home

There's no doubt that Selena Gomez proved herself when she bought and sold this massive mansion in Calabasas, California. According to Today, Selena sold this house to rapper French Montana in 2016 for $3.3 million. He later flipped it for $6.5 Million. Meaning, Selena found a property that had so much potential it almost doubled in price.

12 At Selena's, You're Greeted In Style

There's nothing quite like entering a home with a fantastic foyer. First impressions are everything, after all. According to Hello Magazine, the foyer has a neutral tile floor which leads to the home's walk-in cellar and view of the epic grand staircase. Just outside is the $400,000 recording studio that Selena put in to be able to work from home.

11 Selena's Bedroom Got A Total Revamp When French Montana Moved In

When Selena Gomez owned this beautiful Calabasas, California mansion, she was partial to a bright purple bedroom. But when French Montana moved in, everything got a more muted tone. Either way, the master suite is truly amazing and seems like the best place to cuddle up to someone as downright hot as Selena. So, we guess we're saying... Justin Bieber was a very lucky dude.

10 Another Place That Justin And Selena Got Cozy

This absurdly romantic bathroom would have been the perfect place for Justin and Selena to have gotten cozy with one another. According to The LA Times, the super-soaking sink-in bathtub is just off the master bedroom. It has two doors for access and a fireplace that looks into the bedroom. Seriously, this is what dreams are made of.

9 How About That Calabasas Backyard Though?

If you have an amazing property in California, chances are the backyard is almost as nice as the house itself. This is certainly the case for Selena Gomez's former home in the Greater Los Angeles area. According to Today, her Calabasas backyard has a courtyard, outdoor dining room and living room. As well as a complete outdoor kitchen with pizza oven. And then, of course, there's the pool.

8 Selena's Last Known Residence Was In Studio City, California

While Today says Selena is no longer living in her $2.7 million Studio City home, we're not so sure. After all, she has posted a few shots on Instagram that make it appear as though she's still living there. Either way, this four-bedroom, four-bathroom home is her last known living residence as of October 2019. Although, she did list her property, according to Trulia. We just don't know if that was real or not.

7 We All Want To Get Into Selena Gomez's Bedroom

Anyone with as big of a crush of Selena Gomez as us wants to get into her bedroom. And the one she had at her Studio City home is truly gorgeous. According to the LA Times, the bright white bedroom has two giant walk-in closets, and a stunning bathroom attached. Just outside the window are her lap-size swimming pool, hot tub, BBQ area, and massive patio which is protected by towering hedges for privacy.

6 And Now We're In Her Bathroom

Welcome to Selena Gomez's Studio City bathroom. While it isn't as extravagant as the one in her Calabasas home, it's still pretty gorgeous. In fact, it's a lot more welcoming than her other one. But so is the rest of the home which features two living spaces, a cozy kitchen, and treated brick floors. While it's above our price range, it's a lot less ostentatious than what most celebs have.

5 Selena's Mega-House In Forth Worth, Texas

Seeing property from the air certainly gives you a different perspective. Well, according to Forbes, this 10,000 square foot home was once owned by Selena Gomez. She bought it after selling her place in Calabasas in order to move away from the paparazzi and be closer to her roots. She grew up just 30 minutes away from this gated Montserrat enclave on the west side of Fort Worth, Texas.

4 Inside The Stunning Forth Worth Mansion

Although Selena Gomez has sold this incredible property, it's still worth taking a look at. According to Forbes, it was designed and built to replicate the great châteaux of southern France. The entire home is built of stones in hues of gray and blue. It's also flanked by pillars. As you can see, the epicurean dream of a kitchen is warm and totally functioning. The house also has a games room with billiards and shuffleboard as well as a home theater.

3 The Five-Star Master Suite And Bath

This looks like a great place for someone as hot as Selena Gomez to prepare for a night on the town. According to Forbes, this bathroom is part of the epic master suite. Just to the side is an enormous walk-in closet fit for a queen. There's even a well-placed laundry room nearby, which is one of three in the house. Convenience is everything, eh?

2 Yep, The Forth Worth House Has Its Own Mini-Golf Course

We don't know if Selena Gomez even likes mini-golf, but her home in Fort Worth, Texas has a course for her to play on. The green ran alongside the house and the guesthouse and wasn't too far from the two spacious eight-car garages and the lagoon-style resort saltwater pool, waterslide, and cabana... Damn!

1 6 Beds And 9 Bathrooms Doesn't Exactly Say "Starter Home' But That's What Selena Had In Tarzana, California

According to The LA Times, this was Selena Gomez's starter home when she first moved out of her parents' house. A few years ago, Selena listed the Tarzana, California house for $3.495 million. The neo-traditional home rests on a flat acre of land behind gates. It may be more modest than her Calabasas and Forth Worth homes, but it's certainly not a "starter home."

Selena Marie Gomez was born on July 22, 1992, in Grand Prairie, Texas,[4] to Ricardo Joel Gomez[5] and Texas-born[5] former stage actress Amanda Dawn "Mandy" Cornett.[6][7][better source needed] She was named after Tejano singer Selena Quintanilla, who died in 1995.[8][9] Her father is of Mexican descent, while her mother, who was adopted, has some Italian ancestry.[10][11][12] Gomez's paternal grandparents emigrated to Texas from Monterrey in the 1970s.[13] Regarding her Hispanic heritage, Gomez has said she is "a proud third-generation American-Mexican"[14] and that, "My family does have Quinceañeras, and we go to the communion church. We do everything that's Catholic, but we don't really have anything traditional except [that we] go to the park and have barbecues on Sundays after church."[15] Gomez was fluent in Spanish until age seven.[13] Her parents divorced when she was five years old, and she remained with her mother.[6][16] Gomez has two younger half-sisters: Gracie Elliot Teefey, through Amanda and her second husband Brian Teefey,[17][18] and Victoria "Tori" Gomez, through Ricardo and his second wife Sara.[19] She earned her high-school diploma through homeschooling in May 2010.[20]

Gomez was born when her mother was sixteen years old.[21] The family had financial troubles throughout Gomez's childhood, her mother struggling to provide for the pair. At one point, Gomez recalls that they had to search for quarters just to get gas for their car. Her mother later recalled that the two would frequently walk to their local dollar store to purchase spaghetti for dinner.[22] Gomez stated, "I was frustrated that my parents weren't together, and never saw the light at the end of the tunnel where my mom was working hard to provide a better life for me. I'm terrified of what I would have become if I'd stayed [in Texas]."[23] She later added that "[My mom] was really strong around me. Having me at 16 had to have been a big responsibility. She gave up everything for me, had three jobs, supported me, sacrificed her life for me."[24] Gomez had a close relationship with her grandparents as a child and appeared in various pageants growing up. Her grandparents often took care of her while her parents finished their schooling, and she went as far as stating that they "raised her" until she found success in show business.[24]

Gomez first gained an interest in pursuing a career in entertainment watching her mother prepare for stage productions.[25] She began auditioning for various roles and met Demi Lovato during an audition for Barney & Friends.[26][27] Both Gomez and Lovato were later selected to appear on the series in 2002,[28][29] with Gomez portraying the character Gianna.[30] The show was her first acting gig. Gomez recalled of the experience, "I was very shy when I was little [...] I didn't know what 'camera right' was. I didn't know what blocking was. I learned everything from Barney."[31] Gomez appeared in thirteen episodes of the show between 2002 and 2004; the show's producers released her as she was "too old" for the series.[32] While working on Barney & Friends, Gomez had a cameo role in the film Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over (2003) and the made-for-television film Walker, Texas Ranger: Trial by Fire (2005).[33] She guest starred in a 2006 episode of the Disney Channel series The Suite Life of Zack & Cody.[34]

I'm just looking to send a good message."[86][89] Gomez teamed up with designers Tony Melillo and Sandra Campos for the project, both of whom had previously worked with big-name fashion houses.[87] Melillo and Campos teamed with New York-based Adjmi Apparel to manufacture the brand, which was formed by Adjmi CH Brands LLC, the holding company for the brand.[90]

Selena Gomez Visits Childhood Home and Wonders If It 'Could Have Been Better Than My Life Today'

Selena Gomez spent part of the weekend reflecting on her past — and taking a literal trip down memory lane.

The 25-year-old singer shared a photo of herself perched on the doorstep of the Texas home where she spent her youth, on Saturday, writing on Instagram, “The home I grew up in, from birth to 13… (no one was home when I knocked this time lol).”

“I visit this place every chance I get,” Gomez said. “In many ways it very well could have been better than my life today, but I’m grateful for a voice that can enable change today. Even when I don’t know how to do it well or actually want it. I love you Grand Prairie. Thank you.”

Gomez also pared down her followed list to just 37 accounts, changed her Instagram profile photo to an old photo of her mom Mandy Teefey, and updated her bio line to read, “By grace through faith. Also Will and Grace is life.”

There have recently been strains between Gomez and Teefy, noticed by fans after the duo unfollowed each other on Instagram. But their recent estrangement wasn’t sparked solely by pop star’s newly rekindled relationship with Justin Bieber.

“It’s more complicated than just fighting over a guy,” a source close to the family previously told PEOPLE. “Mandy and Selena have had their ups and down before. This isn’t the first time.”

Though the mother and daughter weren’t on speaking terms toward the end of last year, Gomez “also wants to give her mom some space,” added the insider. “When they fight, they fight hard. But when they love, they also love hard.”

Multiple sources previously told PEOPLE Gomez’s family was concerned about the on-again romance and that Bieber was determined to show her loved ones he had matured.

An insider also confirmed that Teefey, 41, had voluntarily sought treatment at a hospital in Los Angeles in December but dismissed a report that it was because of an argument with her daughter over Bieber. “It’s been a stressful time for Mandy and she made the decision herself to go to the hospital and make sure everything was okay,” said the source.

After ringing in the new year together in Mexico, Bieber and Gomez headed to a private gym session in Los Angeles on Wednesday.

A source previously told PEOPLE that they welcomed 2018 in Cabo with friends, adding that the pair are “doing great.”

Selena Gomez's stunning houses: from Texas to Los Angeles

Selena Gomez's spectacular property story

Selena Gomez has come a long way from her modest childhood home in Texas. With an impressive 18-year career already under her belt as a successful actress, singer and songwriter, it's no surprise that the young star has built up an impressive property portfolio over the years. Let's retrace Selena's road to fame and step inside the spectacular houses she's picked up along the way... 

Where does Selena Gomez live?

Image Press Agency / SIPA USA / PA Images

Having spent time living in Calabasas, Studio City and of course, her home state of Texas, Selena Gomez has accumulated an incredible roster of jaw-dropping real estate over the years. Today, she lives in a sprawling 11,500-square-foot estate in the stylish Los Angeles neighbourhood of Encino. But she wasn't born into such a palatial property...

Selena Gomez's childhood

A world away from the glitz and glamour that surrounds her today, Selena Marie Gomez was born on 22 July 1992. Born and raised in Texas, she grew up in the small city of Grand Prairie in Dallas County. For the majority of her childhood, the star lived with her mother, after her parents divorced when she was just five years old.

Where is Selena Gomez from?

Selena and her mother, Mandy, lived in this quaint, three-bedroom, two-bathroom home until Selena was 13. A short 20-minute drive from the bustling heart of Dallas, the celebrity childhood home is now estimated to be worth $174,200 (£132k). 

Where did Selena Gomez grow up?

In the past, Selena has been candid about the financial hardships the family faced when she was growing up, however, it's clear that she still has a lot of affection for her formative home. The star even made a nostalgic trip back to Grand Prairie to see her old childhood digs in 2018, documented here on her Instagram. 

Selena Gomez's acting debut

Supported by her mother, with whom she remains incredibly close, Selena began auditioning for acting roles from an early age. She landed her on-screen debut in the television series Barney & Friends when she was just 10 years old, alongside fellow child star Demi Lovato.

Moving to Los Angeles

While other small roles followed, Selena's big break came in 2007 when she was cast as Alex Russo in the hit Disney Channel series Wizards of Waverly Place. Aged 15, the young actress upped sticks to the bright lights of Los Angeles with her mother, Mandy.

Selena Gomez's music career

In 2009, while still pursuing her acting career, Selena decided to dip her toes into the world of music and became the frontwoman of pop-rock band Selena Gomez & The Scene, wracking up six platinum-selling singles. In 2013, she decided to go solo and released her hit album Stars Dance. Since then she's released two more albums, Revival and Rare, with all three debuting in the top 10 of the Billboard 200 chart. 

Selena Gomez's Tarzana starter home

In July 2011, around the time of her 19th birthday, Selena snapped up her first-ever home in the Tarzana area of California's San Fernando Valley. The star coughed up just under $2.2 million (£1.7m) for the house not long after she went public with then-boyfriend Justin Bieber at the Vanity Fair Oscars Party. After purchasing the property, she set about upgrading it with a sleek neutral colour scheme and luxury fixtures. 

Selena Gomez's Tarzana starter home

Sitting on just under an acre of land, the luxurious gated home is nestled behind a row of trees, which would have provided plenty of privacy for the young star. Boasting five fireplaces, five bedrooms and eight bathrooms, the stylish house features a bright open-plan living space with sweeping views out across the picturesque garden. 

Selena Gomez's Tarzana starter home

The perfect home to kick-start the teenage actress's property portfolio, the dwelling also has a media room, complete with a wet bar, pool table and a built-in TV. Decked out with dark wooden floors, sleek modern fixtures and French doors, it would have been the ideal spot for Selena to relax and hang out with friends. 

Selena Gomez's Tarzana starter home

The master suite comes with its own ensuite bathroom and a cosy fireplace, while visitors would've been hosted in the private one-bedroom guesthouse, which boasts its very own entrance, a gourmet kitchen and two luxurious bathrooms. 

Selena Gomez's Tarzana starter home

Outside the lavishly landscaped grounds offer a full basketball court, vast swimming pool, yoga pavilion, built-in barbecue and a cabana bar. In 2014, Selena put the property on the market for just under $3.5 million (£2.7m), eventually selling it on to fellow pop star Iggy Azalea.

Selena Gomez's Calabasas mansion

Just before selling her first property, Selena snapped up this estate in March 2014, nestled in a gated community in star-studded Calabasas, a neighbourhood already home to the Kardashian family. Shortly before her public breakup with Justin Bieber, the star paid $3.7 million (£2.8m) for the lavish home. 

Selena Gomez's Calabasas mansion

The 7,800-square-foot property was a step up from the star's starter home, with the magnificent mansion boasting no end of spectacular entertaining spaces. Just inside the grand entrance is a stone-walled wine cave where the singer would've no doubt stored her favourite tipples, while a double-height living room is situated further down the hallway. 

Selena Gomez's Calabasas mansion

Featuring five bedrooms and six bathrooms, the home has a stunning master suite of grand proportions. With a comfortable seating area and a huge celebrity-worthy walk-in wardrobe, the opulent space also includes an ensuite bathroom with a spa-style bath and a steam shower.

Selena Gomez's Calabasas mansion

Packed with top-of-the-range amenities, the home has a cosy home theatre that's ideal for movie marathons, while no expense has been spared on security. The property is surrounded by a nine-foot-high detection fence and is monitored by security cameras. It's no wonder the star took extra precautions as not long after she moved in, a trespasser, who was later charged with felony stalking, broke into the compound.

Selena Gomez's Calabasas mansion

Extending over three acres, the estate unsurprisingly features an amazing back garden, complete with a sunken patio, dining cabana and brick pizza oven for whipping up alfresco meals. However, it wasn't enough to persuade Selena to stay as she put the home on the market in 2015 for $4.5 million (£3.4m), eventually selling to rapper French Montana for $3.3 million in May 2016 (£2.5m) after a hefty price drop. 

Selena Gomez's Texas house

In December 2015, the star decided to go back to her Texan roots and splash out on this impressive mansion in Fort Worth, not far from her childhood home in Grand Prairie. Sitting on one-and-a-half acres of private land, the home is located in the exclusive community of Montserrat and was built in 2005. Bought by the star around the time she revealed she'd been diagnosed with autoimmune disease lupus, it's not clear how much she spent on her new home. 

Selena Gomez's Texas house

The 10,000-square-foot home offers a wide range of luxe amenities. From a designated games room decked out with a wet bar and beer taps to a craft room and home theatre, it must've been a restful retreat for the singer. The living spaces are just as lavish too, with floor-to-ceiling stone fireplaces and airy vaulted ceilings. 

Selena Gomez's Texas house

The star, who is known for her love of cooking and even has her own show, Selena + Chef, which premiered in August this year, would have been at home in the top-of-the-range kitchen. Rustic wooden cabinets sit alongside a huge island and elegant stone floors. Open-plan with the main living room, it's the ultimate entertaining space. 

Selena Gomez's Texas house

Offering five bedrooms and six bathrooms, the plush property has plenty of space to accommodate family and A-list guests. The master suite is the perfect place to kick back and relax thanks to its separate sitting area and ensuite bathroom, complete with a luxurious bath and huge vanity.

Selena Gomez's Texas house

Outside, the home is just as impressive, with the extensive grounds featuring a putting green, sports court, cabana, outdoor kitchen, swimming pool and a waterslide. However, Selena decided to part ways with the pad, listing it for $3.5 million (£2.7m) in 2016 and eventually selling for $2.7 million (£2m) in October 2018.  

Selena Gomez's Studio City house

Before selling her mansion in Texas, Selena took another swipe at the Los Angeles real estate market and picked up this picture-perfect home in the celebrity property hotspot of Studio City for $2.2 million (£1.7m) in May 2017, shortly after making her new relationship with The Weeknd official when the pair attended the Met Gala together. However, it proved to be a trying year for the star. Just a few months later, Selena underwent a kidney transplant following organ damage caused by her battle with lupus.

Selena Gomez's Studio City house

We think this colourful, calming home would've been the perfect place to recuperate. The four-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom dwelling was built in 1951 and fully remodelled by the star. Looking through the house, you can see Selena's penchant for bright statement pieces, like this bold neon sign and the oversized green velvet sofa.

Selena Gomez's Studio City house

Towards the rear of the property, a large open-plan room houses the gourmet kitchen, as well as a cosy sitting area and dining space. The star's distinctive boho style is evident throughout, from the suspended pan rack to the rustic herringbone floor tiles.

Selena Gomez's Studio City house

The home's pièce de résistance, the tranquil master suite would have been the perfect place for Selena to unwind, with its sweeping bay window and snug seating area. The relaxing space is completed by a walk-in wardrobe and a marble-clad ensuite bathroom. 

Selena Gomez's Studio City house

As well as all this, the home has a mirrored home gym, an office and a guesthouse. Outside, the lush backyard features a stone-edged swimming pool and spa, plus a built-in barbecue. The home was listed in June 2018 for $2.8 million (£2.1m) but has since been reduced to $2.4 million (£1.8m), and is currently under offer.

Selena Gomez's new house in Encino

In April 2020, the international pop star, who is becoming known for her real estate deals and house-flipping, purchased a mansion for $4.9 million (£3.7m), which was custom-built by the late singer-songwriter Tom Petty. Located in the exclusive neighbourhood of Encino, in Los Angeles' San Fernando Valley, the mega-mansion sits on almost an acre of land at the end of a secluded cul-de-sac; the perfect private retreat for the pop star.

Selena Gomez's new house in Encino

The huge home has nearly 11,500 square feet of interior space and features a spectacular double-height living room with a grand floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace and a sweeping spiral staircase. Skylights flood the airy space with light, while sleek wood floors run throughout the refined living areas. 

Selena Gomez's new house in Encino

The luxury home comes with not one, but two master suites, each benefitting from a private balcony. Elsewhere there are four additional guest bedrooms, 10 bathrooms and a zen yoga studio, plus a massage room and a gym for the ultimate wellness experience.

Selena Gomez's new house in Encino

The perfect place for the singer-songwriter to pen new hits, the walls of the media room are adorned with guitars and records, while the sunken sitting space offers a relaxing spot to work on new ideas. Made for a pop star, the impressive home also offers a vocal booth, so Selena can record new songs without having to leave the property.

Selena Gomez's new house in Encino

Outside, the outdoor kitchen and covered loggia offer ample space for alfresco entertaining, while expansive stone terraces and a shaded pool provide plenty of room to cool off in the California heat. From a modest house in Texas to a multimillion-dollar estate in Los Angeles all before the age of 30, we can't wait to see what Selena Gomez snaps up next!

Where Does Selena Gomez Live And How Big Is Her House?

Selena Gomez purchased her newest home at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, and one could speculate she did so after being stuck indoors for weeks at a time. Her new Encino home includes a half an acre of outdoor space, and the house itself has basic amenities and then some, including a family room, formal dining room, and large kitchen. According to E!, some believe Petty also had secret passages built throughout the property, which was renovated prior to Gomez's purchase.

The California home isn't the first large estate Gomez has bought. In 2015, she purchased an approximately 10,000 square-foot mansion in Fort Worth, Texas, so she would have a place to stay while visiting and hosting family, per Velvet Ropes. That house featured five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a movie room, crafts room, coffee bar, and dining room with a fireplace. Gomez eventually put the property up for sale, and now, it seems her Encino mansion is her home base.

Selena Gomez House Studio City (former)

Selena bought the home in 2017 after having to move out of her house in Calabasas because of a scary stalker situation. She purchased the private, Studio City house for $2.35 million.

Built in 1951, the home has four bedrooms and four bathrooms and is only about 3,100 square feet. So, it’s nice and cozy…for Hollywood standards!

In 2015, Selena Gomez bought a 10,016 square-foot mansion in Fort Worth, Texas.

What does Selena Gomez eat?

Selena Gomez is a gorgeous girl who loves to eat. She has always been vocal about being comfortable in your own skin and encouraging others to have a healthy self-image, too. She loves to treat herself, but still in moderation.

In the morning, she eats a piece of raw ginger or takes a shot of it to kill all the yuck that make be lingering. While she’s on tour, she keeps an abundant supply of pickles, hot Cheetos, and chocolate, as well as plenty of water.

When she’s looking to indulge, Selena loves fried chicken and Tex-Mex, probably because she’s a Texas native. And her favorite fast food is McDonald’s. But her trainer has been trying to switch her to a healthier food regimen, encouraging her to ditch the fried stuff for carrots and hummus.

Why did Selena Gomez go to rehab?

Selena Gomez recently completed her third stint in rehab, but it’s not for what you may think. When you hear rehab, you immediately think it’s treatment for drugs or alcohol. Selena sought treatment for mental health reasons.

Selena has a tough year. After receiving a kidney transplant in 2017 from her good friend and actress Francia Raisa, she also got back together with her ex, Justin Bieber. She also received a bunch of flak for appearing in a Woody Allen film amidst the Times Up movement.

So, in February of 2018, Selena checked into the Prive-Swiss in Connecticut. The wellness program is designed for high-profile people in need of rest and relaxation from the “always on” lifestyle. A 30-day stay could cost $120,000, but Selena stayed for two weeks.

Selena has been vocal about her suffering from anxiety and depression for quite some time. In 2014, she sought treatment at Dawn at the Meadows in Arizona, and then again in 2016 at a treatment facility in Tennessee.

How much money does Selena Gomez have?

After accumulating her fortune from her singing, acting, songwriting, and producing careers, Selena Gomez net worth is about $60 million. That’s some serious dough!

She recently signed a two-year endorsement deal with Puma for $30 million. And Selena is also known as the highest-paid celebrity on Instagram, raking in more than $550,000 per post. That’s more than the Kardashians and any sports star.

Why so much for Instagram posts? Because she is the most followed person on the platform! For reference, as of this post, she has 138 million followers compared to Kim Kardashian’s 112 million.

What part of Mexico is Selena Gomez’s dad from?

Selena Gomez was born on July 22, 1992, to Ricardo Joel Gomez and Amanda Dawn Cornett in Grand Prairie, Texas. Her parents named her after legendary Tejano singer and actress Selena Quintanilla-Perez.

Her parents divorced when Selena was only five years old, and Selena lived with her mother full-time. Ricardo, who is of Mexican descent, went on to remarry and have a daughter, Victoria. Amanda, who is of Italian descent, remarried and had a daughter, Gracie.

As for what part of Mexico her dad is from? We have no idea 🙁 Even though Ricardo is of Mexican descent, he was born in America.

What TV shows has Selena Gomez been on?

Selena Gomez began acting at an early age. She auditioned for Barney and Friends in 2002 and landed the role of Gianna. Fun fact: She met future B.F.F. Demi Lovato at the audition for Barney and Friends.

After leaving the show in 2004, Selena she appeared in minor roles on popular Disney Channel shows like The Suite Life of Zack and Cody and Hannah Montana. She eventually won the role of Alex Russo on the wildly popular Wizards of Waverly Place. The show put her on the map and lasted four seasons.

Selena concentrated more on her film and music careers and hadn’t taken on many television acting gigs since. She has appeared as herself on many shows like PrankStars (2011), The Voice (2015), Saturday Night Live (2016), and Inside Amy Schumer (2016).

In 2017, she began work behind the camera. She is the executive producer for the hit Netflix series, 13 Reasons Why. The second season of the controversial drama begins May 18, 2018.
