Timbaland Confesses That He Was in Love With Aaliyah

So I was just reading this and thought, "oh wow!"

Producer, Timbaland who has worked with Missy Elliott, Justin Timberlake, Ginuwine and the late great Aaliyah will be telling his story on the E! True Hollywood Story next Tuesday where he talks about  suicidal thoughts over his previous 400 pound weight gain in 2003 and he even confesses about being in love with Aaliyah.

"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," Timbaland says. "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."

Timbaland's E! True Hollywood Story airs Dec. 20 at 9 p.m. on E!
