[artist id="503162"]Timbaland[/artist] says that there is no way he was thinking about committing suicide. The super-producer called in to Ryan Seacrest’s radio show this morning and denied the TMZ report that he was contemplating suicide after a $2 million watch was stolen from his Malibu house.
“People steal from me all the time,” Tim told Seacrest. “Something did happen. That wasn’t a watch. It was something else.”
Tim also said that he suspected somebody close to him had stolen from him and he left his home to think.
“Only thing I did was take a drive and figure out how I’m gonna handle it,” he explained. “I wasn’t talking, so I guess people got worried. I tell people if my mom ain’t calling or my brothers or my best friend, ain’t nothing to talk about. … Now why would I commit suicide? I could buy what was stolen.”
The Malibu/ Lost Hills Sheriff’s Station weighed in on the subject. Police say they had received a call from “distraught family members,” and according to a police report, “His wife, mother, mother-in-law and other friends had been trying to find him but that proved unsuccessful so they called for the assistance of the Sheriff’s Department.” A missing persons report was apparently filled out yesterday.
A police helicopter located Tim a short while later and the hitmaker returned home, the report also says.
Tim did leave his crib later and spent all night in a recording studio. The platinum king told Seacrest he had just come out of the lab, where he was finishing up Keri Hilson’s new album. He said fans can expect a couple of singles from it in the next couple of days.
“I just got back from the studio,” Tim said. “I don’t know if a person who’s going to commit suicide would be in the studio.”
