Timbaland Evaluated By Paramedics After Reported Robbery
UPDATE: Timbaland called into Ryan Seacrest’s radio show to say he’s doing fine and authorities were just performing due procedure.
Superstar producer Timbaland concerned his family to the point of involving authorities yesterday, TMZ.com has reported. The Interscope artist/producer/executive allegedly contacted his brother-in-law by phone yesterday, expressing his pain over a two million dollar theft, including a Jacob & Co. watch. Shortly after the conversation, the Virginia-born Timbaland left his Malibu, California residence and began driving. Family members were unable to reach Tim, and contacted sheriff’s department.
Shortly after family contacted authorities, police stopped Timbaland’s Cadillac Escalade. The artist was reportedly evaluated by paramedics and escorted home in a patrol car.
Timbaland and his label have yet to speak on the matter. HipHopDX will keep you updated.
Since releasing his Shock Value II last year, Timbaland has produced on Drake’s Thank Me Later.
UPDATE: Hours after the original report, TMZ.com posted the 911 call from Timbaland’s mother-in-law which caused local sherriffs to send out the “possible suicide watch” APB. Timbaland subsequently called into Ryan Seacrest’s radio show, and said the following:
“I don’t even know what happened to be honest with you. People steal from me all the time, so that ain’t nothing new…it wasn’t a watch it was something else. It’s people that are close to you. The only thing I did was take a drive to figure out how I’m gonna handle it. They probably thought I wasn’t talking, so I guess people got worried. I tell people if my mom ain’t calling, or my brother or my best friend, then ain’t nothing to worry about. Why would I commit suicide? I just came from the studio. I don’t know any person about to commit suicide who would go to the studio.”
