Following the billion-dollar sale of his Beats audio devices, music producer Dr. Dre has Dre homereportedly purchased the estate built by NFL quarterback Tom Brady and his supermodel wife Gisele Bündchen for a reported $40 million.

It’s a home worthy of the old Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous television show and the more modern Cribs.

The mega-18,298-square-foot mansion, which had an original list price of $50 million, was built by Brady who purchased the property for $11.75 million back in 2009, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Dre, 49, is the founder and chief executive of Aftermath Entertainment and Beats Electronics. Apple recently announced it will pay $3 billion to acquire Beats Music and Beats Electronics.

A story on NewsOne describes the estate, which is surrounded by a moat:

“The sprawling limestone- clad estate, set on four acres, reportedly has five bedrooms, nine bathrooms, seven fireplaces, a library, sweeping terraces, gym/sauna, massive infinity pool, golf course, open air galleries, and tons of other amenities.  The home is reached by a winding driveway, and the picturesque draw of the Old-World-French-château-inspired home is its cobblestone motor court and an actual moat that is reminiscent of a castle in a fairytale, which is filled with obscenely expensive Koi fish.  The eco-friendly estate’s electricity is supplied by solar panels.”

Dre has produced albums and worked with many of the biggest rappers in music including Snoop Dogg, Eminem, 50 Cent and Xzibit. He was ranked as the second richest figure in the American hip hop scene by Forbes with a net worth of $550 million, a figure that now tops a billion dollars following the sale of Beats by Dre to Apple.
