We don’t know if Selena Gomez was blowing out magical candles borrowed from the Wizards of Waverly Place set, but the Selena + Chef star just got a major surprise this weekend as she celebrated her 31st birthday. Turns out, her net worth has skyrocketed to nearly $1 billion.

On Saturday, July 22, the “Lose You to Love Me” singer marked her 31st by throwing a celeb-filled extravaganza at her Malibu residence. As seen in the slideshow below, guests at the event included Paris Hilton, Benny Blanco, Karol G and more.

But another trip around the sun wasn't the only thing Gomez had to celebrate. Turns out, our Leo queen is close to billionaire status, according to a new update posted by Celebrity Net Worth on July 21, which said that her net worth is now $800 million.

As noted by Marca, part of this leap could be due to Serena Williams investing in Gomez's start-up, Wondermind, which is dedicated to giving readers “easy, doable ways to put [their] mental fitness first every day.” According to Marca, Williams's $5 million investment led Wondermind to jump in valuation to $100 million.

Of course, we can't forget that the Only Murders in the Building actress also launched her own cosmetics line, Rare Beauty, back in 2020. This business move has been quite lucrative, with sales of the Rare Beauty blush alone netting around $70 million last year, according to Bloomberg.

In addition to all this, Gomez is the producer of her aforementioned show, Only Murders, which has earned her two Emmy noms (for producing). Not to mention, she has plenty of other projects lined up, including the upcoming musical comedy Emilia Perez, co-starring Zoë Saldaña.

Talk about a good week for Selena.
