Producer extraordinaire Timbaland gives fans a deep look inside the man behind some of our favorite hit records. E!’s True Hollywood Story sits down with the musical genius to discuss his career, suicidal thoughts and falling in love with the late R&B princess Aaliyah. In the interview Timbaland confesses:

“When I first met Aaliyah—it’s time for the world to hear this, I’m gonna give up a little secret—I was in love with her. I said, But I’m not… She just a baby, I’m old. I said to myself, ‘I’m just gonna be her brother.’ Oh man, I was fightin’, I was fightin’ a lot—a big war. But I loved Aaliyah.”

But don’t expect Timbaland to keep the confessions coming past this interview, “This will be the last time I talk and I’m going back into hibernation,” he says before baring his soul for the cameras.

Timbaland’s True Hollywood Story: Timbaland airs this Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET on E! Watch the trailer here.
