Timbaland might have just won the Team Petty Award of the Year after he canceled a scheduled performance to benefit folks in Flint, Mich. over the weekend in Detroit. The reason? The Virginia producer didn’t take the stage because he was given the wrong bottle of champagne ahead of the show.

The New York Daily News exclusively 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.

Mr. Jaworski said Timbo and crew drank 15 bottles of liquor and champagne during the night, calling their booze consumption “excessive” and that they only cared about getting sloshed. He also adds that Timbaland and his entourage didn’t tip and exhausted their rider.

It was reported that Timbaland, born Tim Mosley, took the stage around 1 a.m. ET but just glared at the crowd. Jaworski addressed the matter on Club Bleu’s Facebook page but it appears the post has been erased.
