Remember that video from a few weeks back where Dr Dre bragged about becoming a billionaire? Turns out Apple wasn't particularly impressed with the revelation, especially since that long rumoured buyout of Beats hadn't been finalised at the time.
In fact, the rumour is that the video has actually caused the finalisation of the deal to be held up. Some are even going as far as saying that Apple "nearly imploded with outrage," when the video started making its way round the web.
This is just one alleged reason explaining why the rumoured buyout hasn't taken place yet. But when you consider that it's likely to be a deal costing Apple somewhere in the region of $3.2 billion (£1.9 billion), it's not surprising that Apple wants to take its time.
Whatever the reason, the buyout is expected to be (finally) announced sometime shortly after the Bank Holiday weekend. [TechRadar]
