All right stop. Collaborate and listen. Another Hollywood couple bites the dust. A new report claims Vanilla Ice’s wife, Laura Van Winkle, filed for divorce from the ‘Ice Ice Baby’ rapper on Tuesday, Oct. 18, after nearly 20 years of marriage. To find out more, click below!
Just when we thought nothing could be worse than Angelina Jolie dumping Brad Pitt, we discover that Vanilla Ice‘s wife of nearly 20 years, Laura Van Winkle, filed docs to divorce the rapper on Oct. 18. Our hearts are broken — or should we say, they’re covered in ice.
This is a painful split, especially considering Vanilla Ice, whose real name is Rob Van Winkle, and Laura have two daughters together — a 16-year-old and an 18-year-old. However, sources close to the couple told TMZ that Vanilla Ice, 48, and Laura have been separated for a few years now. The legal docs just make their split official.
Plus, their marriage, which started in 1997, was very tumultuous. Vanilla Ice was previously arrested twice for domestic battery — once in 2001, and then again in 2008.
The Grammy-nominated singer, who is most famous for his 1991 hit, “Ice Ice Baby,” recently appeared on the 23rd season of Dancing With the Stars. The season premiered on Sept. 12, and he was eliminated during the Oct. 4 episode.
