Was Timbaland so distressed by the theft of a $2 million watch that he contemplated taking his own life? According to TMZ, that may have been the case.
Yesterday, the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department launched a manhunt for Timbo after the super-producer’s family contacted them, believing he was distraught over the theft of an expensive Jacob & Co. watch.
Timbaland was on the phone earlier in the day with his brother-in-law … deeply upset about something. We’re told one of the things that was eating at him was a theft at his Malibu residence a day before. Someone had stolen a crazy expensive Jacob & Co. watch — valued at $2 million — and Timbaland suspected it might have been someone he trusted.
Timbaland left his home yesterday and began driving. Family members couldn’t locate him, became extremely worried and called the Sheriff’s Department.
Authorities eventually found Timbaland and returned him to his residence where paramedics determined that he was not a threat to himself. An investigation into the theft is currently underway.
