Sources say Apple is snatching up the company that brought us Beats By Dre for a whopping $3.2 billion! “Since Dre and Interscope honcho Jimmy Iovine created the brand … it’s a safe bet they will walk away with a huge chunk of that cash,” TMZ repots. “Dre and Jimmy created the brand back in 2008 with headphones — but now they’re also making bank off speakers, car audio systems, and a streaming service.”

The deal, which is on its way to becoming Apple’s biggest acquisition yet, is expected to close next week.
