Timbaland refused to perform at a fundraiser for water-plagued Flint, Michigan, because he was served Dom Perignon instead of Jay Z’s $300-a-bottle champagne, it has been claimed.He reportedly asked for Ace of Spades to be served in the dressing room of the Detroit event raising money to buy bottled water for residents. Instead he was served Dom Perignon, and that was enough to lose his contract all together.
According to the New York Daily News, Timbaland drank every drop of the champagne, tequila, vodka, cognac, and disaronno that he had requested. However, he still refused to perform his 30-minute DJ set because of the champagne mix-up and simply stood in the venue nodding his head.
The co-owner of Club Bleu, Mitchell Laworski, where the event took place, told New York Daily News that, ‘They had about 15 bottles of liquor and champagne, which is extremely excessive especially for a charity event’. ‘They seemed more concerned about getting every drop of liquor.’
That’s not cool Timbaland..if its true.
