Timbaland Suicidal After Jewelery Theft?

Just one week after singer Fantasia Barrino was rushed to a hospital for an apparent suicide attempt, producer Timbaland may have suffered a similar fate.

According to TMZ, family members of the 39-year-old, born Timothy Mosely, contacted authorities concerned that Timbo was distraught over the theft of some expensive jewelry, and that he might cause himself physical harm. As of Tuesday (August 24) evening, the L.A. County Sheriff’s department put out a “possible suicide” All Points Bulletin, and began searching for the Virginia native’s car by squad cars and a helicopter.

After speaking with his brother yesterday, Timbaland was said to be upset over the stolen Jacob & Co. watch, valued at $2 million. Believing that it may have been someone close to him that committed the crime, Timbaland jumped in his Cadillac Escalade heading away from his Malibu, Calif. home, and was unable to be reached by family members. He was later located by police and transported back to his residence where he was evaluated by paramedics. It was later determined that he was not a threat to himself, and authorities left the home. Cops are now investigating the theft of his belongings.

Ironically this news comes on the nine year anniversary of his protege and close friend, singer Aaliyah, who died in a tragic plane accident in 2001. Timbaland has yet to make a statement regarding the matter.
