The first billionaire of hip-hop is buying Gisele Bundchen and Tom Brady’s Los Angeles mansion for a staggering $50 million. With Apple acquiring Beats Electronics for $3.2 billion, Dr. Dre can certainly afford Tom and Gisele’s 14,000-square-foot Brentwood estate complete with a moat.
According to the NYPost: “Dre put an offer on the mansion as soon as it came on the market, and is a few weeks away from closing.”
The richest man in hip-hop is currently Sean “Puff Daddy” Combs, whom Forbes Magazine says is worth $700 million. Jay Z is in third place with $520 million. After Apple’s acquisition of Beats, Dr. Dre will certainly take the crown at the top spot.

Top model Gisele Bündchen and New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady are selling their stunning Los Angeles Estate. After 4 years of construction, the 14,000-square-foot Brentwood home is on the market for $50 million with the Westside Estate Agency.
The home cost $20 million to build and includes eight bedrooms, a six-car garage, a lagoon-shaped swimming pool with spa, a weight room and a wine cellar.
The amazing property was featured in Architectural Digest, where the NFL star told the magazine:
“Gisele and I have eight sisters between us, and there are lots of kids. We built this house as a sanctuary for our family—a place where we can enjoy being together.”
Los Angeles must not have been the ideal sanctuary for the Bündchen/Brady clan, as they’re building another mega mansion from scratch in Brookline, Mass. The family is reportedly planning on living full-time in the new 14,000-square-foot New England estate which, according to TMZ, will include “a basement spa, a motor court, a pool with a “Baja shelf” (perfect for tanning in the water), a library with a balcony, a wine cellar, and even its own yoga studio.”
