On Thursday night, Award-winning music producer Timbaland refused to perform during a charity show held in Detroit for the people affected by the polluted water crisis in Flint, Michigan because the club did not have the right brand of champagne, according to reports.
The co-owner of Club Bleu Mitchell Jaworski told the NY Daily News the reason why Timbaland refused to perform was because the club didn’t carry Jay-Z’s Armand de Brignac line of champagne, “Ace of Spades.” Instead, the hip-hop producer and his crew were given bottles of Dom Perigon and several other bottles of expensive liquor.
"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,” Jaworski told the Daily News in an interview.
Timbaland decided not to play a 30-minute DJ set in which hi was paid for in advance. Instead, he stood in front of the stage and nodded his head while another DJ played music.
