According to TMZ, producer Tim “Timbaland” Mosley was pursued by the L.A County Sheriff’s department as a possible suicide.
Law enforcement officials said that Mosley was allegedly distraught over the theft of a $2 million watch and went driving in his Escalade. When family members could not find him they called the Sheriff’s Department.
Some time later a police helicopter located Timbaland and he was pulled over and questioned. Eventually Tim was taken back to his home in a patrol car, evaluated by paramedics and determined not to be a threat to himself.
Given that this is the ninth anniversary of Aaliyah’s death it’s certainly understandable that Tim would be upset, but suicide seems a bit suspect. Furthermore, the idea of one of Forbe’s Top 10 richest rappers wanting to kill himself over a gaudy watch seems even more ludicrous.
Timbaland’s rep could not be reached for comment.
