Rapper-turned-reality TV star Vanilla Ice
has been arrested for domestic battery. The star - real name Robert Van Winkle - and his wife Laura had been arguing since Wednesday. It is believed Laura called police to report her husband was hitting and kicking her at their Palm Beach County, Florida home on Thursday evening.
According to the arrest report, Laura Van Winkle appeared uninjured, but told cops she wanted a divorce from the star. But she is reported to have reneged on her earlier allegations, insisting her husband had not hit or kicked her, but had pushed her.
She is alleged to have told a police officer, "He started yelling at me for going out to buy a bedroom set. In front of my daughter. I'm sorry I can't say any more until I talk to an attorney." Robert, 40, told cops about the couple's two-day fight, admitting he called his wife "nuts", and said his wife is bipolar and takes medication but still has 'irrational episodes'. He denied the allegations he pushed his wife.
Van Winkle was arrested in 2004 over similar domestic battery charges.
