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.

Navigating the spotlight can be tricky. Navigating the end of the spotlight can be even trickier.
Some stars move into logically-connected careers (Mark Hamill's largest post-Luke Skywalker role was voicing The Joker for Batman: The Animated Series).
Then again, some stars ... don't. These are nine stars with the post-fame careers that we (and maybe they) never saw coming.

If you remember watching the 1991 film Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze's climactic scene, which featured Vanilla Ice rapping about ninjas and dancing with the turtles, then you'll likely enjoy this clip.

Now here's a juicy rumor that Miley Cyrus just couldn't help but poke fun at.
The Twitterverse went into overdrive this weekend after a report surfaced claiming the Bangerz singer was pregnant with rapper Juicy J's child – this, just two weeks after Cyrus, 20, called off her engagement to Liam Hemsworth, 23.
Apparently, the news took even Cyrus by surprise: On Monday, the singer let loose a pair of cheeky tweets that ribbed the speculation.

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.

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.
