Last night, actor/musician Tyrese Gibson posted a video to Instagram and Facebook featuring himself and Dr. Dre that seemed to confirm that the rumored acquisition of Beats Electronics by Apple was a done deal. By morning, the video was gone, suggesting that some lawyers somewhere got very jittery. While no one has refuted last night's story by the Financial Times that the deal is imminent, it's still not official, so Gibson and Dre probably jumped the gun by quite a bit.
In the video, presumably shot during a studio session/celebration, Gibson (who goes by Tyrese in his singing career) says "billionaire boys club for real... " in reference to the $3.2 billion figure cited in the deal, and the fact that it could potentially make Dr. Dre (a.k..a. Andre Young) a personal billionaire.
Business Insider captured a screenshot of how the video appeared on Facebook before it was taken down:
At one point, Gibson shouts "the Forbes list just changed," presumably to include new billionaire Dre. Dr. Dre, for his part, mostly nods enthusiastically along, but then says himself, over Gibson's shoulder, "The first billionaire in hip-hop, right here from the motherfucking West Coast. Believe that."
