Add Timbo to my ain’t shit collection. Timbaland acts like a diva because he could not get his very expensive booze and bail out of the event.
NY Daily News reports,
Timbaland refused to perform at a charity show in Detroit for residents afflicted by Flint’s poisoned water supply when the club served the wrong brand of champagne.
The event raked in at least $3,000 to buy bottles of water and filters for the troubled city despite the multi-Grammy winner’s apparent lack of professionalism late Thursday night, said Club Bleu co-owner Mitchell Jaworski.
The two bottles of “Ace of Spades” champagne worth more than $300 each were replaced with Dom Perignon because the club did not carry Jay-Z’s expensive line of Armand de Brignac bubbly.
Despite the mix-up, the hip-hop producer and his entourage polished off an entire arsenal of booze in the club’s VIP seating which included two bottles of Patron, three bottles of Ciroc, two bottles of D’usse and one bottle of Disaronno Originale Italian Liqueur.
“They had about 15 bottles of liquor and champagne, which is extremely excessive especially for a charity event,” Jaworski told the Daily News. “They seemed more concerned about getting every drop of liquor.”
