Dr. Dre will not be a billionaire after the deal with Apple has finalized

Forbes is probably warning Dr. Dre to stop being so happy about his money and it might be just too early for him to call himself the "first billionaire in hip hop". According to a rep from Forbes, after the $3.2 billion deal has been finalized, Dr. Dre will not be able to hit the billion dollar mark. Forbes Assistant Managing Editor for Wealth has revealed that after doing the calculations, Dr. Dre’s wealth will be marked at $800 million after the deal is finalized.

Dr. Dre’s share in the company is merely 25%, so that would leave him with $800 million after the sale of Beats. And when the taxes have been deducted from this share, he will have $480 million. The $800 million was reached by adding all other assets of Dr. Dre as well. The Forbes editor says that this is "Not quite enough to debut on the Forbes 400 but plenty for bragging rights.”

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
