They are estimated by Forbes to own 20-25% of the company each. This could see them make $800 million each and bump up Dre’s total net worth to over $1 billion depending on the final sale figure and taxes. The deal would also see Apple become one of the leading players in music streaming industry with Beats Music. Congrats to Dre and Jimmy.
