Timbaland has opened up about his struggle with depression and drug addiction, which almost led to an overdose. During an interview with Rolling Stone, the producer explained, ” I was on drugs, dude. I was on OxyContin. ” Timbaland said he started taking pills in his 30s to deal with nerve damage he suffered from a gunshot wound as a teen. However, once his marriage ended and he wasn’t working as much, the number of pills he was taking increased.
