Timbaland Axes Chris Brown from His Album

11/23/2009 7:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Chris Brown was officially dropped from a track on Timbaland's new album -- and sources tell TMZ, the decision wasn't entirely about the music.

Timbaland Axes Chris Brown

A source close to Brown tells TMZ the singer's vocals were removed from a song called "The One I Love" due to the "drama" surrounding him.

Tim's manager, Marcus Spence, confirms Brown was dropped from the song -- but insists the move was a "creative decision for both parties" adding, "There's nothing against Chris. We love Chris."

But according to rapper D.O.E. -- who does appear on the track -- the song was originally called "Maniac" ... but was changed because "some people" didn't think it would be a good idea to attach Brown to a song with that title.

Funny enough -- Timbaland's album will be released the same day as Brown's ... December 8th.

Cmon guys he didnt kill anyone and is paying for what he did wrong. Rihanna publicly forgave him so why cant we forgive him and move on? We all have done some pretty bad things in our young lives that we want to forget and sure we wont forget what he did but we have to move on. How long are we going to make this kid suffer for his yes, big mistake? He did the crime and is doing the time. Lets all learn to be a little forgiving and get past this. Like I said Rihanns is and did, MOVE ALONG PEOPLE!

People deserve a second chance but the problem a lot of people (present company included) have with Brown is his lack of remorse. The only thing he seems remorseful about is the nosedive his career took. Maybe he should quit the tweets taking shots at other artists and try to become a better person.

There are of plenty people more talented than Chris Brown to replace him. It's not like he just hit her - he BEAT her. If you haven't seen the pictures you need to. Until he proves himself, I think he's a monster. Not enough time has gone by to think that he's a changed man, or that he's learned to control his anger. Good for Timbaland, I wouldn't want to associate my name with him either.

THISISIT again MJ breaks records    

Whatever, Timberland is a fat sweaty old man. His performance on the AMA's was gross just like him. Chris Brown should have performed, his song crawl is hot as fire.
