Vanilla Ice with his wife Laura
Vanilla Ice is a free man. The rapper-turned-reality TV star has called it quits with his wife, Laura Giaritta.
The reason? Apparently, Laura cheated on Vanilla [born Robert Van Winkle], though she claims she hasn’t. “We’ve had problems for a very long time and Rob has moved out”, she told the National Enquirer.
But that is not all. It all started long time ago, when, in 2001, Vanilla assaulted his wife. He was charged of disorderly conduct and was sentenced to probation and ordered to attend family therapy sessions. In 2008, he was arrested again for hitting his wife.
The two got married in 1997 and have two daughters together, Dusti, 12, and Keelee, 10.
