Selena Gomez Making 'Jersey Shore' Money

2/15/2010 5:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Selena GomezSelena Gomez is one of Disney's biggest stars right now -- but she's barely pulling in more per episode than the wasted, juiced up cast of "Jersey Shore."

According to her minor's contract -- filed last month in Los Angeles Superior Court -- Gomez made $10,000 a show for the first season of "Wizards of Waverly Place," the same amount Seaside Heights' finest will pull in next season.

The show is now in its third year and her pay has only been bumped up to $11,025.

Selena ain't exactly struggling -- she's also got a million dollar movie deal and a music career on her shoulders too.

Plus, she's only 17 ... sure beats a babysitting gig.

I Honestly Love Both Miley And Selena, I Just Don't Think Singing Is For Selena, She Is An Amazing Actress, They Both Are. But I Think Miley Is The Better Singer. Still Its Nice That Selena Wants To Sing, But I Think She Should Leave The Singing To Miley And Demi. Im Not Hating On Selena.

My advice for Selena Gomez is to quit the TV/Film/Music Industry. TV and Film because she betrays Christianity by portraying the role of a witch, poisoning young malleable minds. Music because although her own opportunity.. The songs are not coming from her own heart.. She ought to find a young kid, get married and get out of the evil limelight. If she’s old enough to date.. Then she’ s old enough to commit to one man for the rest of her life. We surely don’t need anymore Natalie Portman’s, Winona Ryder’s, Drew Berrymore’s, Jennifer Aniston’s etc. etc, etc. who make a lot of money. Thank you and good day.

The saddest part of this whole article is that she is wholesome star..not a boozing, trash-mouthed, sleep with anything kind of those weirdos on Jersey Shore. She should be paid alot better. I watched JS one time and if I were from Jersey I would be finding a way to get them shut down pronto

Newsflash...Selz show is not number 1 cuz Hannah Montana has been for 4 years. And besides that Selena Gomez is a mean girl. Sure she does it on the down low. However, the hispanic community is growing against miley thanks to sel. Now they are blaming cyrus for selena's small income. Sel has enlisted the aid of justin gaston, beiber and jonas to put miley down. Just mean.

I think this is wrong.

I've seen several articles that say she's the highest paid Disney Star.

Here's a link

She's making 25k per episode.

Well i'm prety sure she will go through maijor changes physiscly here soon. Same for justin beiber, he's right at that point where your body does alot of changes. As fare as her money goes, whatever........ There will be plenty and plenty of disney stars after her, and we will get all up in there buisness as well. It's the same thing over and over.

Selena Gomez is talentless she aint good for nothing. She puts on a fake act so she can seem like the nicest bitch get real. This bitch is a bigger WHORE than Miley she be hopping around with different dudes all the time she's like a rag that guys pick up to use and then throw out when done using. I can't stand her she's pathic I'm happy Demi now knows the real Selena, who let's her own friends and family treat her so called Bestfriend like **** and for her to say that she would never be on TMZ funny BITCH go get pregnant like your mom you make us teenagers look dumb YOU STUPID PIECE OF ****.
