Music Producer Timbaland Dishes Out On His Dark Secrets

Famed producer Timbaland has battled many things in his career.

But he has also been a smashing sucess in the music business.

Working with the likes of Justin Timberlake, Missy Elliot, Nelly Furtado, and Dr. Dre, he has been a force since the early 90s.

With E!'s True Hollywood Story, Timbaland reveals some of his demons.

He admits to loving the late Aaliyah but chose to be a big brother type.

He states the following:

When I first met Aaliyah—it time for the world to hear this, I'm gonna give a little secret—I was in love with her. I said, But I'm not…She just a baby, I'm old. I said to myself, 'I'm just gonna be her brother.' Oh man, I was fightin', I was fightin' a lot—a big war. But I loved Aaliyah.

Aaliyah signed a record deal at 12 and allegedly married R. Kelly at 15.

She tragically passed away at 22 in a 2001 plane crash.

Timbaland also talks about his weight and his suicidal thoughts.

I was almost 400 pounds. Who wants to be a 400-pound black man? I'm looking in the mirror, my breast is bigger than a girl breast. And I was saying, ‘That ain't cool.' So I got very depressed, like suicidal depressed.

But now, the superstar producer is married and healthier.

Timbaland's Story airs Tuesday, December 20th.

    This is creepy. Why does it seem like Aaliyah was some kind of Lolita to these men? He's not really that clear about whether or not he did something about it, but it does seem like he didn't. At least he knew the difference between right and wrong, unlike the hebephile R. Kelly.

    Just the other day I realized how many great productions Timbaland was involved in over the pst 2 decades. His work with Missy Elliott is legendary The guy is truly a genius. Great to read how he could hold back in regard to Aaliyah unlike the pedophile R. Kelly.

    "married R. Kelly at 15"

    THAT'S A LIE! R. Kelly likes them way YOUNGER than that!
