Vanilla Ice's estranged wife wants a court to force him to pay for repairs to her house.
Vanilla Ice's estranged wife wants him to pay for repairs to her house.
The 'Ice Ice Baby' singer officially split from Laura Van Winkle - the mother of his daughters Dusti Rain, 20, and 18-year-old KeeLee Breeze - two years ago and they are currently going through a divorce, but she's asked a court to order him to fund much-needed maintenance work to the Florida home they used to share because the local Home Owner Association (HOA) are pressuring her over the lack of fence around their pool and a dirty of mildewed roof.
According to documents obtained by TMZ, Laura claims the 50-year-old rapper - whose real name is Robert Van Winkle - has dismissed multiple notices to pay by saying he isn't the homeowner any more, but she insists that isn't true and she believes he should pay all the costs because he brings home $825,000 a year.
Laura filed for divorce in October 2016 after 16 years of marriage, but insiders claimed at the time they had actually separated long before then.
A source previously said: ''He and Laura have actually been separated for a few years now, and she's just making the split official.''
In 2008, the rapper was arrested for domestic battery after allegedly hitting Laura, but the case was later dropped after she explained to police that her partner had only pushed her.
But that wasn't the first time the pair have come to blows as the 'Ridiculous Six' actor admitted to ripping out Laura's brunette locks from her head in 2001 but claimed he only did so to prevent his partner from hurtling herself out of his car's window whilst they were in the midst of a blazing row. He later pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct.
Following the incident, he was put on probation and ordered to undergo family therapy sessions.
