Vanilla Ice is just trying to deal.

On Feb 18, the former rapper (real name: Robert Van Winkle), 47, was arrested and charged with burglary of a foreclosed home in Florida adjacent to a property he was renovating for his DIY Network home improvement show, The Vanilla Ice Project.

After telling reporters as he left Palm Beach County Jail last Wednesday that the incident was "a misunderstanding … blown out of proportion," the "Ice Ice Baby" rapper appeared on Friday's Good Morning America to further discuss the arrest.

Battery Case Dropped Against Vanilla Ice

Rapper Vanilla Ice won't be prosecuted for allegedly beating his wife, court documents show.

"The State declines to file criminal charges," a Palm Beach County, Fla. prosecutor wrote. "There is insufficient credible evidence ... due to the victim recanting her original statement and lack of an independent witness."

The rapper, real name Robert Van Winkle, 40, was arrested April 10 in Wellington, Fla., after his wife, Laura, told sheriffs that he allegedly "struck" and "kicked" her.

"It was just a verbal argument. He didn't physically harm his wife," Winkle's attorney Bradford M. Cohen told PEOPLE.

A restraining order against the musician has also been lifted.

Vanilla Ice Released From Police Custody

Rapper Vanilla Ice was released from a Palm Beach County, Fla., jail Friday after being arrested Thursday night for alleged domestic battery.

A judge ordered the musician (real name: Robert Van Winkle) not to have contact with his wife Laura, except by phone.

The rapper, 40, was released on his own recognizance.

Sheriffs responded to a call from a Wellington, Fla., home Thursday night about a domestic dispute. According to an arrest report, Laura Van Winkle allegedly told a deputy that her husband only pushed her, although she initially told a dispatcher she'd been "struck" and "kicked."

The rapper is due back in court May 5.
