Grammy Award-winning record producer and rapper Timbaland is suing to evict a failed buyer of his Miami mansion, court records show.

Timbaland, whose real name is Timothy Zachery Mosley, has been trying to sell his home at 10395 Southwest 67th Avenue near Pinecrest. According to his lawsuit, Will Zamora was under contract to buy the home from Timbaland, but the sale fell through, according to Page Six.

Timbaland is alleging Zamora is now staying in the home illegally, preventing him from selling it to another buyer. And Zamora claims that liens on the property are preventing him from closing on the seven-bedroom, nearly 11,000-square-foot mansion.

Records show the rapper paid about $3.5 million for the home in 2004 and listed it for sale about a year ago for $4.4 million. He reduced the price to $3.39 million in the summer. As of last week, the listing was taken down, Page Six reported.

In early January, Timbaland closed on a double unit at Aria on the Bay in Miami’s Arts & Entertainment District. [Page Six] – Katherine Kallergis
