Vanilla Ice’s wife just filed for divorce after nearly 20 years together. According to TMZ Laura Van Winkle filed on Tuesday here in Florida. They have 16 and 18-year-old daughters. Rumor has it they’ve been separated for quite some time but this just made things official.
“I gave myself a birthday present. I wanted to file for divorce for a long time but I was scared to do it,” she told the Daily Mail. The two attended functions together and even went on family vacations but according to her they lived apart for the past few years.
Side note: Vanilla Ice’s wife was my babysitter when I was a kid, then years later they became my neighbors. Talk about small world, right? Not that any divorce is easy but they’ve been together for a long time so I wish them the best during this time.
