Super producer Tim Mosely, BKA Timbaland has been hitting the gym and HARD!
The award-winning entertainer shows off his dramatic body transformation with his 130-lb WEIGHT LOSS!
“I had to get whipped, because I didn’t appreciate anything,” says Mosley, who’s worked with Beyonce, JAY-Z, Drake and more. “All my life I felt it was a little too easy.”
Despite his professional success, Mosley’s dramatic body change came after he went through a divorce, struggled with addiction to prescription painkillers, and had millions in unpaid taxes to the IRS.
The breaking point, though, came when Mosley “had a dream that death was near” in which he saw himself “with a white face.” Another factor was his children, Reign, Demetrius and Frankie.
“It’s like a bright light going on in your brain,” he says of raising children. “That’s how you know what true love really is.”
After that realization, Mosley set out to put his life together again, moving, paying off the IRS, and completing his divorce.
“I had to downsize, get all that superstar stuff out of the way,” he says. “The divorce at the beginning was very messy, but now we are good friends.”
As for the addiction to painkillers, Mosley decided to work on that by himself. “Just me and God,” he says. “This was the path chosen for me. God was rebuilding my character.”
It wasn’t an easy road to conquer his addiction, though, as Mosley counts withdrawal as “one of the toughest things I’ve been through.”
“The only things that got me through it were my kids, my girl, the help of God keeping my mind still,” he says of his girlfriend, Michelle Dennis, whom he calls “a great woman.”
At the onset of his journey, Timbo topped the scale at about 350 lbs!
After freeing himself of the addiction issue…next he had to hit the gym. He started slowly, then began boxing and jumping rope.
“When you get beat up the way I got beat up mentally, this ain’t hard,” he insists.
Even with all his hard work and all the improvements to his life, Mosley notes that “God has me under construction, which I’m still under.”
“I don’t feel like I’m complete. I don’t want to ever feel like I’m complete, ’cause my mind would probably get idle,” he says. “God needed me to be clear so I could see what is needed, not what I want.”
Timbaland is definitely a motivation for us all!
