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.

GOOD FOR YOU TIMBALAND!!!! JUST FOR THAT I'M BUYING YOUR ALBUM WITHOUT EVEN HEARING ANY OF THE TRACKS. I'M BUYING IT NO MATTER WHAT. Come to think of it, I'll probably buy 5 copies and promote it on every site I have!!!! =)

I am with Christine...I am buying the album too... There have just been too many pictures and articles that the world sees Chris Brown having the time of his life. The overkill of bodyguards when he is doing community service or in court is sickening. Tough boy can give a beating but can't take one.

Timbaland is first of all too old to be walking around calling himself Timbaland, that was soooo 1990s. And all i got to say is that HE who is without sin cast the first stone!!!!!!

There are sins and SINS and until you get your face punched you shouldn't be so forgiving.

Stupid TMZ    

TMZ has just stopped Tims album sales and now it's gonna be a back lash against Timberland, just watch twitter. What you dumb asses fail to realize is that Chris still has all of his fans and even more, his concerts are crazy, he's topping the charts and MTV can't get enough of him! Many don't even know who Timberland is. Tim is gonna be the one that is mad with TMZ not Chris because Chris expect that from TMZ. TMZ is messing with Tims album sales. Remember you idiots what ever Chris Brown touches turns to GOLD. He is the most talented artist in the game, he's a triple threat, singer, song writer and dancer. Dumb TMZ just F-up Tims album sales.

GIVE THE KID A BREAK...HE'S WAS 18 YRS OLD & SHE WAS 19....THEY WERE BOTH SPOILED BRATS, LIVING A LIFE THAT THE AVERAGE TEENAGER COULD NEVER DREAM OF & THINGS GOT OUT OF HAND.
IF CHRIS WAS A GROWN MAN I'D BE DOWN WITH ALL OF YOU, BUT HE'S A KID. HE MADE A MISTAKE. RHIANNA WENT TOO FAR & HE SNAPPED. I HOPE YOU DON'T THINK THAT RHIANNA IS A SHY & RETIRING YOUNG LADY. SHE'S ONE OF THSOE HOT BLOODED ISLAND GIRLS & SHE CAN BE A HANDFUL. THAT'S NOT SAYING SHE DESERVES TO BE BEAT, BUT IT'S SAYING THAT THEY BOTH HAVE A LOT OF GROWING UP TO DO & LETS NOT JUST BURY THIS KID & HIS ENTIRE CAREER AT 19!

WE have all done something in our past that if revealed, would destroy us. There are other celebrities who have done or are currently treating and/or beating their girfriends/fiancee's/wives but it has yet to go publicly. Chris Brown made a mistake, although it was a mistake, it was a huge mistake. He is paying criminally and we should not take any further actions.

He is still human and have bills to pay. he deserves a life. Half of the ones who are still humilliating him may be those who are unemployed and already feel some sort of guilt for your own downfall.

If it were your son, how ,ong would you penalize him? would it be this long or would you continueto stick by him amist his mistakes?
