Published Apr 11, 2008Former rapper, actor and reality TV star Vanilla Ice has taken things to the extreme once again. And as usual, its has nothing to do with music but rather, his torrid domestic life. According to several news reports, Vanilla Ice allegedly rocked his wife like a vandal on Thursday, landing his ass in jail for the second time on domestic violence charges.
The 40-year-old (real name, check this, Robert Van Winkle) was arrested for domestic battery after police received a call from his wife, Laura Van Winkle, claiming the Iceman had hit and kicked her, the Daily Mail reports.
When police arrived at the couples South Florida home, she told officers: "He started yelling at me for going out to buy a bedroom set in front of my daughter. By this time, Ice had ridden two blocks away from his home on his motorcycle, the Palm Beach Post reports, so he and his wife could chill.
Ice has denied all allegations of domestic battery, claiming his wife is prone to "irrational episodes because of her bipolar disorder.
Ice was first arrested on similar charges back in 2004 and pleaded guilty to Disorderly Conduct. He was sentenced to probation and ordered to get undergo family therapy.
Our advice to Ice and his wife? If there was a problem, yo, just solve it. Violence be too cold, too cold.
