Update: Timbaland Denies Reports of Suicide Attempt

Police were on the hunt for Timbaland yesterday (August 24) and it wasn’t for the public’s safety—it was for his own.

According to TMZ, Timbo’s family was nervous that the Virginia native would hurt himself after a $2 million piece of jewelry was stolen. The L.A. County Sheriff’s Department brought out all the stops—a helicopter and squad cars—to try to find the Grammy-winner’s Escalade. After some time, the vehicle was located and Timbo was brought back to his home, where paramedics determined that he did not present a threat to himself or others.

Today (August 25) also marks the nine year anniversary of the death of Timbaland’s friend and collaborator, Aaliyah.

Stay tuned to XXLMag.com as more info become available.

Update: Timbaland called into Ryan Seacrest’s radio show today to deny the reports of a suicide attempt. During the short exchange, Timbo said it was all a misunderstanding. He apparently got upset after learning someone in his inner circle stole an unidentified object from his house and decided to take a drive to collect his thoughts. “Something did happen,” Timbo explained. “It wasn’t a watch it was something else,” he said of the object, “but it was people that’s close to you. The only thing I did was take a drive to see how my head went.”

Tim said the incident got blown out of proportion. “They probably thought ’cause I wasn’t talking,” he shared, “so I guess people got worried.” Adam Fleischer

    I doubt is about some jewelry, a special articles floater on your home insurance covers that. I know he gotta have one. Either way it gotta be something more serious than a piece jewelry.

    Sounds like homie took a ride to calm down, before he went ape sh^t on someone and wrongly accused them.

    Yo Timbo:

    get a safe homie.

    I worked with this fat faggot from the beginning helping get him where he is 2day & all he & Ginuwine did was is stab me in the back like & out of millions like a bitch nigga would. 1st a few years back Ginuwine gets all doped up & tries 2 drive himself off a cliff & now this chump of a friend tries 2 do the same which driving off a cliff on drugs is a homo way of doing yourself if you gonna take that route anyway. Do it like a real man & blow your fuckin’ brains out Tim. Die by Cop, U fuckin’ Herb.

    I been telling people 4 years that Tim is a straight Pussy cause I have seen him do some real pussy shit when the shit hits the fan. I know 4 a fact neither 1 of them can handle any type of pressure & this, once again proves my point 2 all the fruits out there. The cream always rises 2 the top, not slide off the side of a fuckin’ cliff! It takes pressure 2 create a diamond which is why I thrive off that shit. Tim, do the world a favor, finish what U started U punk bitch! Go ahead & Murk yourself.

      ^ wow fam.

      I can relate to Timb doing dirty business, cause I was on that promo team for Bubba Sparxx in NYC, met dude, we got the product, and dude literally changed his number by nighttime, so we got no cheddar for our work.

      N^ggaz left nothing but smashed ‘Ugly’ records in front of the door.

      • PHARO

        Err tim dosen’t handel his promos he has ppl to do that for him….the above 2 comments are lies far from accurate.
        NO ONE WORTH OVER $200 MIL IS GOING TO KILL THEIR SELF OVER $2 MIL. He’s not the first to be robbed of that value.

        • http://www.bboycult.com Don mcCaine

          whatever homie.

          I never wrote Timb HIMSELF gave me the product. Bubba was on Timb’s Beat Club label, wasn’t he? Yeah I’ma blame Timb, he was the boss.

          The same way Obama gets flack for all the sh^t his underlings & workers do.
