When Apple bought Beats in June of 2014 for $3B, he made $30M from the deal
LeBron invested in the famous “Beats” headphones company started by hip hop mogul in 2008. In fact, one of the biggest reasons the headphones line took off was LeBron’s shrewd move to present a pair to all of his teammates on the 2008 USA Olympic Basketball Team. The power of 12 of the most famous basketball players in the world wearing these headphones instantly made them a pop culture phenomenon. When Beats was purchased by Apple for $3 Billion in June of 2014, LeBron’s slice of the sale was more than $30 million in profit.
