Lebron’s share in Beats by Dre is undisclosed, but he reportedly earned 10% of the $3 Billion sale of the headphone and music streaming company. Lebron was given prototypes of the Beats headphones in 2008 by Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre, and was given a share in Beats by Dre in exchange for promoting the head phone giant.
