Vanilla Ice

Busted After

Meltdown with Wife

4/11/2008 12:37 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0411_ice_booking_2-1Former rap star Vanilla Ice, real name Robert Van Winkle, was arrested tonight at his home after an alleged altercation with his wife. 

Ice was booked by Palm Beach County Sheriff's deputies at 10:43 PM ET on a charge of domestic battery. Sources tell TMZ he got into an argument with his wife, Laura, and he pushed her.

Vanilla Ice is still in custody at
Palm Beach County Jail. Palm Beach County Sheriff's tell TMZ that in most cases, people arrested for domestic violence are usually held over to see a judge. Looks like Mr. Van Winkle will spend a night in the pokey.

Another man that is disrespectful with his childs mother? I will question this story until the facts are in. He has seemed to be a good "Family Man."

Vanilla Ice's 15 minutes have been over so long they were in the last century (Well, technically since his hit was in the '90s it was last century but you know what I mean). Why is it news that he beat up on his wife?

THIS COULD HAPPEN TO YOU TOO:

WARNING!!! WARNING!!! WARNING!!!

After leaving my comments on a US Weekly article today (Nicole's
Baby) it really got under another poster's skin and she started
freaking out and leaving lots of other comments under her name and
other names. Whatever. But, IMAGINE MY SURPRISE when she fired back
with another comment telling everyone my full name (first and last)
even though all I had used was my first name!!!

Somehow "Smoothie Sucks" (her name) was able to obtain my last
name!!!!!

So, either "Sucks" works for US Weekly and therefore has access to
EVERYONE'S NAME and of course EVERYONE'S E-MAIL ADDRESSES or she
knows someone who works there that was willing to jeopardize their
job by giving her that info or someone is hacking into their system.

It gets even worse if you are a member of usmagazine.com because when
you join they ask for your REAL ADDRESS and your TELEPHONE NO. and she
can get that info too.

So if you VALUE YOUR PRIVACY or your ANONIMITY, forget it. US Weekly
is giving out personal information.

I don't believe this until the facts are in. I watched him on Ty's rodeo show and he adores his wife and kids. He is also from Dallas and still lives here. Do not believe everything TMZ post!
