Dr Dre just spent $40 million on a house - and not just any house.
Dr Dre has lodged on offer of around $40 million for Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen's Los Angeles mansion, according to TMZ.com. Tom and supermodel Gisele listed the 18,700 sq. ft Brentwood estate for $50 million after barely spending any time living in the place. They basically built the house from scratch, spending $11.75 million on the building in 2008 before severely redesigning the place to their own tastes.
Dr Dre Has Spent $40 Million on Tom Brady's Place
Insiders say there were "multiple interested parties ready to put offers on the house" but Dre swooped first with a solid offer, which Tom and Gisele decided to accept. Sources say the deal is not yet closed, but it's very close.
The high profile couple were offering the house fully furnished, but insiders from Dre's crew say the Beats guru wants to put his own stamp on things and only part with the cash on the proviso that he can bring his own furniture with him. Most of the stuff was furniture and artefacts that Brady has spent years collecting from various trips around the world.
Dre's new house boasts five bedrooms and NINE bathrooms.
As for Dre's finances, he was recently listed in Forbes richest hip-hop stars with an approximate net worth of.wait for it.$550 million. He's second only to Diddy or Puff Daddy, who's worth a cool $700 million.
Dre is currently readying his Daisy streaming service with Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor.
