Quincy Timberlake’s story hit headlines 14 years ago after he left his wife Rose Mueni and eloped with new anchoor Esther Arunga to Australia.
It did not end there as Quincy further made headlines in 2014 after police arrested him together with Esther Arunga and charged over the murder of their son Sinclair.
Esther was freed but Timberlake was not.
Moreover, Timberlake abandoned his wife Rose and three children namely, Trevor, Quincy, and Cassidy.
Rose fell ill and suffered depression leading to her death in March 2022, leaving their sons to fend for themselves.
Yet again, the story of Quincy Timberlake is back, only this time through Kenyan Lawyer Wahome Thuku.
The lawyer through his socials explained the current situation of Timberlake’s children, calling on Kenyans of goodwill to help the sons out of their financial turmoil.
“Yesterday, I met three of the most humble humans in this city. Cool, calm, composed and very disciplined. The Timberlake brothers.” He wrote on August 3.
Eldest Son Sells Fries to Fend for His Siblings
Wahome Thuku revealed that Quincy Timberlake’s three children had been struggling to make ends meet.
The lawyer stated that the trio whose dad abandoned in 2009 and lost their mom last year have been facing the wrath of life.
22-year-old Trevor currently sells French fries in a small joint he inherited from his late mom to take care of his younger siblings.
“He takes care of the two young brothers – food, clothes, rent (8k) and everything else. Including their discipline. I talked to him yesterday and the first thing I told him was to think about going back to school. He would like to do that very much,” Thuku narrated.
Likewise, the lawyer revealed that Trevor who schooled at Pioneer Potter Academy, Umoja cleared primary school in 2015 when the father was already facing jail in Australia.
He scored 368 points and joined Maomnaner school in Kitale through sponsorship by the owner of the school. He attended Form 1 and then two terms of Form 2.
Unfortunately, Trevor dropped out due to lack of fees, and only went back to sit for Form 4 exams in 2019 and scored a D.
Similarly, 19-year-old Quincy was placed to pursue BSC in Mechatronics Engineering at Dedan Kimathi University but is looking to change to Aeronautical Engineering. The lawyer explains that Quincy had not cleared fees arrears in his High School.
Quincy who did his primary school education at Elite Primary in Nakuru sat for KCPE in 2018 and scored 416 marks.
He later joined Chavakali High School in Vihiga County for his secondary school education five days before the end of Term one. He later dropped out at from three and went back for form four where he sat his KCSE exams and scored an A.
“He never attended Form 2 term three and the whole of Form 3. He went back there and straight to Form 4 in term two and three. That was just after the mother’s death. He sat for KCSE and scored an A,” Thuku wrote.
The last born of Rose’s children with Quincy Timberlake is Cassidy who is currently a form four student at Green Oak School in Nairobi
The 17-year-old also attended Nakuru Elite primary school and scored 379 marks in KCPE. He later joined Chania High School in Thika and was there for two terms.
He went back after Covid break and was sent away over fees. His guardians unsuccessfully pleaded with the school management.
As a result, they transferred Cassidy to Mavoko High school then to Green Oak school in Nairobi where he is combining Form 3 and 4.
The Lawyer revealed that Cassidy has accumulated a fee balance of Ksh.33,000.
Kenyans Raise Over Ksh 1Million for the Timberlake Sons
Wahome Thuku took to his socials and mobilized his followers to help raise funds to support the three brothers.
“I never give a Paybill number since I can’t manage to control it. If you think you can bail them out then you can only trust me with your money. No other way. You know I will account,” wrote Thuku.
Kenyans of goodwill came out within a brief period and raised over one million shillings for this noble course.
The lawyer expressed his gratitude to Kenyans saying he did not expect them to help in large numbers.
“I am moved beyond words by your response. Over 500 of you have contributed from 50bob to 20k. And I mean Kenyans here and across the world.” Thuku wrote.
“I can now inform you that we have crossed the one million mark in contributions,” He wrote on August 6.
Nonetheless, the city lawyer while announcing the end of the fundraiser assured Kenyans that the money will properly be put into use to see the two young boys finish school.
