Miami, Feb 27 (IANS) Rapper Vanilla Ice, whose real name is Robert Matthew Van Winkle, says he has landed “in a little bit of a mess” following his arrest last week.
The 47-year-old, who was charged with burglary residence and grand theft following an alleged crime which occurred adjacent to a Florida home he was renovating for his ‘The Vanilla Ice Project’ show, is hopeful the situation will soon be forgotten about, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
“I’m doing alright. Got in a little bit of a mess, but we’ll get through it. Yesterday’s history, tomorrow’s a mystery,” Florida Today newspaper quoted Ice as saying.
Items including bicycles, a pool heater and furniture were taken from the property at some point between December and February, and some were later found at the ‘Ice Ice Baby’ hitmaker’s home after police searched his house.
However, the items have now been “returned to their rightful owner”.
Police Chief Sean Scheller later confirmed that Ice, who shot to fame in the 1990s, was working with police to try to locate some of the missing items and he is said to have been very cooperative.
