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 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
