Man Killed on Timberlake's Golf Course

2/8/2009 1:27 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Justin TimberlakeA man was killed on Justin Timberlake's golf course yesterday in a freak accident involving a tree.

It all went down in Justin's home town of Millington, Tenn., where JT rescued the Big Creek golf course from developers back in November.

The construction worker was involved in a renovation project clearing trees with a track hoe, when a tree fell and crushed him.

Shelby County Fire Dept. told WREG in Memphis: "We think at this point that the ground can be so unstable. It's very wet and very muddy that the bottom of the tree just gave way."

Calls to Timberlake's people have not been returned.

Why would you be contacting JT's people? It's ridiculous how you always like to lay blame on the celebrity when anything happens. And what exactly did you expect them to say? As if they'd talk to anyone calling from TMZ anyway? Lol

Why should his "people" return calls? It was a very unfortunate accident and people should be thinking of this man's family, not what Justin Timberlake would say. What exactly CAN he say? DUH!

I can't even stand this kid but what the hell does he have to do with this?? Absolutely nothing is the answer. Lame attempt to tie him to something semi-scandalous.

The tree was near a pond, that is why the ground was wet.

So his mere presence makes this news worthy, and not even a condolence to the man killed, classless TMZ
