It’s not even noon on the West Coast but Timbaland’s already had a hell of a day. TMZ reported earlier today that the Grammy-winning artist went missing after relatives called into police, fearing that he was contemplating suicide following the theft of his $2 million watch. But after police located Timbo, he called in to 102.7 KIIS FM’s On-Air with Ryan Seacrest to clear up the false suicide report.
“I don’t know what happened. To be honest with you, I don’t even know what people were talking about,” he told Seacrest, claiming that he gets stolen from often and that it wasn’t a watch that was thieved. “The only thing that I did was take a drive to figure out how to handle it.”
“I tell people that if my mom ain’t calling or my brother or my best friend, then ain’t nothing to worry about,” he calmly stated. “Why would I commit suicide? I could buy what was stolen. You know it’s close in your family when it’s things in your house.”
Timbaland called the on-air jockey from the studio, where he is currently finishing up work on Keri Hilson’s upcoming sophomore album.
