Dr. Dre Moves Business to Ireland to Avoid Taxes


A few weeks ago Dr. Dre was named the highest earning rapper of 2012, thanks to his 51% stake in headphone line Beats by Dre.

Now that Dre is philthy phucking rich he's doing everything he can to hold on to his cash...

Dre earned a whopping $110 million last year, thanks to Beats by Dre, and now the shrewd business man has moved three subsidiaries of Beats by Dre to West Cork Ireland to take advantage of their low corporate tax rate.

The new structure allows Dre to channel money between the separate companies to legally reduce profits and his tax burden.

Hell yeah! I was about to say the same thing! Maybe the REAL reason WHY he leaving is BECAUSE he going over there to get TREATMENT for SOMETHING! Look at his lips! He look like he been sucking on something for way too long. I heard he was down low. And ain't he married to a cracker po white trash. I guess he didn't want a black chick cause he was afraid she was gone take his cash. His cracker just a beard. Yes he looks like he got something he can't get rid of and his face caving in. Do we have another Easy E on our hands?

117 are you crazy. taxes have been required way before Obama. White folks have been taking they money to Cayman Islands and Ireland for years, Romney do the shit. but check this out here is something to think about. number one should a middle class person pay more then the rich. HELL NA.
Second if a business lets take beats by dre makes 20 fucking million dollars and Americans are buying the shit and he making his money here in america, should he make pay fucking taxes to the place where he make his money. Hell yeah. maybe it shouldnt be at 30% but it should be something.

Only a ghetto rich nigga would find a way to avoid paying taxes. He probably wasn't paying in the first place. Greedy bastard. And what makes him think the business will do better in Ireland. Ireland is suffering financially. Asshat. I hate these rappers. Nothing but ghetto dusty niggas with money.

Guilt has him m looking like this...

It has been said for years that he is/was down low, and that he has his love thang working as his assistant or in his entourage with him at all times. It was even said a few years ago that he smack his white wife because she had gotten out of pocket about his piece. Or maybe he is running cause he don't want Suge to come and take that from him to. You know how Suge did the five heartbeat thing on him and he left with nothing. Or last but not least, he maybe leaving because he doesn't want to give his grown kids any of his money. Remember when his oldest daughter was on tv saying how he wouldn't help her to get into the rap world and he wouldn't give her any money to help her live, and how he doesn't even speak to her. But I think he might be going over there so that he can be with his love meat and they can be happy and not really worry about the paparazzi taking there picture.

That's a lot of headphones sold! But thing is I hardly ever see anyone wearing headphones on the street, in the subway, etc. Who's buying them? I would like to see the numbers, because it wounds unbelievable to me that anyone could make that much net profit off headphones.

^correction, it "sounds" unbelievable to me

LMAO @ the conspiracy theories... Dre is on STEROIDS, that's why he looks so strange.

Those headphones are a rip off anyway. And typical, whenever people start banking $$, they want to hold on to every penny, and don't want to pay their fair share of taxes.

Ask any professional audio person, Beats headphones are the worst. The best headphones are Bose QC-15.
