Florist to Timbaland: Get Scrooged

12/29/2008 2:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

A Florida florist wants a piece of Timbaland's mansion after the rap mogul allegedly stiffed the store out of more than $10,000 in Xmas decorations.

The White Tulip Florist in Miami Beach filed legal papers required to slap a lien on Timba's Miami mansion, claiming he bought $25,850 worth of trees, flowers and lights but still owes $11,450.

We're told Timbaland pitched a fit when he got the bill -- demanding to see the wholesale cost of the items he bought. The florist showed Timba the price list, but that wasn't good enough.

A call to Timbaland's rep was not immediately returned.

one and all,

i must resurrect my hypothesis that of which i am most known: 'Bling Splatt the Cause of Pre-Mature Death among Rappers'.

As submitted to the New England Journal of Health, the American Medical Association, National Geographic, Reader's Digest, and Redbook.

My postulate that the root cause of death among rappers is not due to black on black crime, per se. But, due to the inordinate use of metals within the framework of their upper torso, in the region of what is known on the street as 'da grill'. Commonly used metals such as silver, gold, platinum, and an occasional diamond or two (dependent upon the rappers ability to sell their wares - ie records - ) as placed in the oral cavity of said rapper, causes reactions such that mortality rates are a foregone conclusion. There is no cure for 'Bling Splatt", the diagnosis is death.

What causes 'Bling Splatt'? There is no simple answer. My theory revolves about the idea that low IO levels of said rappers combined with calcuim and phosphorous (previously stated in street slang as 'da grill') when mixed with metals and/or metallic objects react such that positively charged electrons are emitted which when released within the parietal lobe send such a large electrical pulse throughout the parietal region of the brain, that the organ cannot absorb...in essence...KABOOM !!!...the brain has exploded...ie "Brain Splatt".

Collegues at the Bellevue Mental Hospital, Def Jam Records Inc., Johns Hopkins Medical University, and Toys 'R Us are in concert with my hypothesis, theories, and ideas. They are all in agreement that more study and review is needed in this arena of medicine. I have applied for a $500 Billion bailout for study and research and a few luxury amenities for myself (Mustang Ranch, Nevada trips for me and the staff, and dubs for my Prius). President-elect Obama has been apprised of this situation and receives daily updates as to which rapper is next believed to contract the illness as such. The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Secret Service, MI6, Scotland Yard, and Elmer Fudd are conducting intelligence quotient (IO) tests on secretly on unsuspecting rappers, as we speak, in order to compile and update their existing files of low intelligence rappers.

Such a twist of fate that belies our 'mos def freestylin' word-slangin' prophets. That there by the grace of God, he shall speak. But, there by the grace of God, when he speaks with mouths full of 'bling', his head will go BOOM !!!

My services are rendered to expose the truth regards the death of our nations rappers. Word !!!

Typical completely self involved nouveau riche numbskulls that erroneously believe there is something about them so special that they don't have to pay the price for what they want.

Asking for the wholesale costs was really none of his business. He wanted the goods and services, he pays the price the company providing them charges, PERIOD.

I won't be surprised to see this wanker on the list of bankrupt "celebs" soon.

I know about this florist, White Tulip in Miami. They are crooks. They steal money. They don't pay employees, they are rip off artists and not to be trusted. I am sure they are the problem not Timbaland!
