Ice-T Blasts Coco Over Inappropriate Flicks With Male Fan
The bond that is Ice-T's relationship with his lady love, Coco, might have a few cracks in it. Ice is always vocal about his feelings for Coco, but pictures she took with a male fan has him questioning the relationship.
Ice took to Twitter Saturday (Dec. 8) to call his wife out.
In a classic tweet-and-delete move, the 54-year-old pegged his wife as being disrespectful for posing for photos with an aspiring rapper, AP-9. Ice explained that the guy pretended to be a friend of his, and called him a stalker, but after looking through the pics he changed his tone. 'She made me look and feel like sh-t,' he wrote.
The pics are from Coco's first weeks alone in Sin City.
Of course Coco is known to put her assets and implants on display just about anywhere, but apparently she went too far. She started out by writing 'relax' over the uproar, but realizing her wrongs, the 33-year-old also went on Twitter to apologize. 'I'm sorry baby & to everyone [sic].'
Before long Coco was littered with Twitter-hate, and allegations of infidelity. Do a few pictures mean she's cheating, or just looking for attention?

"Ice Loves Coco" Follows The Second Season Premiere of "Khloé & Lamar" As Part of E!'s Year-Round Sunday Night Reality Block
Los Angeles - As one of pop culture's most beloved, yet unconventional couples, Ice T and Coco continue to defy stereotypes with their unique, outrageous, and surprisingly traditional 10 year marriage. Just in time for Valentine's Day, "Ice Loves Coco" returns to show a more intimate side of this power couple, going behind the hype and headlines and giving viewers an exclusive glimpse into the ultra-stylish lives of rapper/actor/author/motivational speaker Ice T and his model/entrepreneur/Internet-sensation wife Coco. This season the fun couple take off to exotic locations, share a trailer when Coco makes an appearance on Ice's hit show "Law and Order: Special Victims Unit" and due to their demanding careers, face spending time apart for their first time in their marriage. Their love is undeniable, but life isn't always easy as Coco receives some news about her health that puts the possibility of expanding their family in jeopardy. However, this fun-loving duo is ready to conquer any obstacle that life puts in their path, as long as they are doing it together. Be part of their journey when "Ice Loves Coco" premieres in its regular timeslot Sunday, February 19th at 10:30pm ET/PT, followed by another all-new episode airing on a special night on Monday, February 20th at 10:30pm ET/PT.
In the premiere episode, Coco's maternal instincts kick in when changes in her body convince her that she must be pregnant. After a trip to her doctor Coco receives news that is not as joyous as she had hoped and instead learns she has genetically high blood pressure. The sudden diagnosis stuns the couple and if not treated seriously it could affect Coco's ability to have a successful pregnancy, putting her life, as well as a baby's, in danger. In a scared-straight moment of realization, Coco decides that there is nothing more important than family and vows to live a healthier lifestyle, change her diet, expand her fitness regime and not let her workload get out of control. She quickly learns that with the love and support of her devoted husband, these life changes are necessary and will greatly improve their chances of becoming parents.
Later in the season, the stress of Coco's health issues and the couple's constant work commitments begin to take a toll on Ice and Coco, so they decide to head off to Hawaii for some rest and relaxation. While they're there, they visit the Army base where Ice was stationed and celebrate their eleventh wedding anniversary. The paparazzi follow Ice and Coco to their home in Miami where Coco is the proverbial fish out of water on a deep sea fishing expedition. Ice and Coco also retreat to Arizona to spend time with Coco's sister and her ever-growing family. Ice's kids and his grandson join them, which gets both sides of the family together for a rare and entertaining reunion. Ice's second family, his "Law and Order: Special Victims Unit" costars, also make appearances this season including Kelly Giddish and Richard Belzer. With all this talk of family, Ice a

"Ice: A Memoir of Gangster Life and Redemption - from South Central to Hollywood" (Ballantine Books), by Ice-T: A lot of vocalists sing and rap about situations and events they haven't experienced.
Ice-T isn't one of them.
One of the first "gangsta rappers," Ice-T rhymed about hustling, banging and pimping on the mean streets of south-central Los Angeles.
Turns out, the lyrics Ice-T spewed, first as a solo rapper and later as the frontman of the thrash-metal outfit Body Count were the musings of a man who has lived them.
In his book, "Ice: A Memoir of Gangster Life and Redemption — from South Central to Hollywood," Ice-T describes how he "rapped about the (stuff) I knew firsthand... To me, it was just the life I was living. If anyone asked me at the time, I called it 'reality rap.'"
Based on that definition, let's call this a "reality book" — a tell-all that really does tell all.
And it's as cool as its namesake.
"Ice" is full of vivid descriptions of the never-boring life of the man born Tracy Marrow.
Raised as an only child in New Jersey, he became a pre-teen orphan whose parents both died of heart attacks. Shipped to live with his alcoholic aunt in L.A., Marrow had a front-row seat for the early years of the West Coast gangs as a student at Crenshaw High School.
He eventually graduated to becoming a street hustler and thief who was shot at by a security guard and nearly killed in a car accident. Hospital officials didn't know who he was, since, as a criminal, he never carried identification.
Marrow served a nearly four-year stint in the Army, stationed in Hawaii, where he credits an old-school sergeant with shaping his later career arc.
The Vietnam vet, referred to only as Donovan, screamed at Marrow that he was in the service simply because he couldn't make it in civilian life.
"More than anything else, that's the one statement that propelled me to where I'm at today. I give Sergeant Donovan all the credit," Ice-T writes.
"Ice" also provides readers with a behind-the-scenes look at his genesis as an actor, including how director Mario Van Peebles came across Ice-T in a club and hired him to portray an undercover cop in the influential early '90s flick, "New Jack City."
These days, Ice-T is in his second decade as a star of NBC's "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," where the one-time law-breaker again is portraying a member of law enforcement.
He also speaks to inmates and at colleges around the country.
"Who could have imagined that an ex-hustler from Crenshaw Boulevard would be spitting game to Ivy League students," he writes.
Or becoming the author of a fascinating memoir, the pages of which are jam-packed with tales of a guy who "actively did everything I rhymed about."

West Coast Hip-Hop veteran/TV star Ice-T is expanding his business portfolio with a strategic partnership with Aiko Importers and Pay Up Management to promote and distribute a new line of liquor named Original Gangster XO Brandy.
OG XO Brandy is produced in France and handcrafted in small batches, created with a blend from "exceptional vineyards" to ensure a distinctive flavor.
Representatives for Aiko Importers reached out to Ice-T's manager Mickey Bentson a year ago, who happened to be looking for an alcohol brand Ice-T could really get behind.
"Ice-T sat down with me and I told him, 'you have to see the presentation.' He loved the taste and the bottle. At the direction of Ice-T, I also told them we didn't want money, we wanted a partnership," Ice-T's manager Mickey Bentson told AllHipHop.com.
"Ice decided it would be best to have partnership in the business so we can build other brands. The bottles are great and the liquor is fantastic," added Bentson, who also owns Pay Up Records, a label that recently inked a major deal with Empire Distribution and signed artist Mr L.O.C. (Bay Area), Devon-P & TJ (UK) and Half Lip (PA).
"Coco will end up with her drink as well, and I will end up with mine. We think long term. We are building other brands within this company," Mickey Bentson told AllHipHop.com.
OG XO Brandy, which was founded in 2004 near Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, is currently available in select markets in the United States, including Boston, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, New York and Chicago.
By 2011, OG XO will be will be available in every market in the U.S., with a retail price of $22.99-$42.99.
In related Ice-T news, the superstar actor/rapper has been added to the lineup of performers during a concert celebrating the Zulu Nation's 37th anniversary in Harlem, New York at the Center for Hip-Hop Culture Center at Magic Johnson's Theater.
In addition to rappers like Ice, Sadat X, DJ Tony Touch and the Soul Sonic Force, Bentson is planning to introduce Half Lip, a new rock band on his Pay Up Records imprint.
"If you wait long enough, something big will come along and Ice-T waited," Mickey Bentson said.

T.I. is being sued for copyright infringement by rapper Motoe Blizzid.
Motoe Blizzid aka Nathan Filby, who is being represented by One LLP and has performed with Ice-T, Snoop Dogg, and Ludacris, says that T.I.'s Grammy Award winning song "What You Know," sampled portions of a 2004 song he made titled Reverence.
He claims that the track was delivered to a number of industry insiders before reaching a representative at Relentless Management, a company that reportedly works with T.I.
In court documents, One LLP and Filby claimed that the tracks contain the "same harmonic" range and lawyers even presented documents that showed an algorithm that claimed to show the song's similarities scientifically.
According to the lawsuit, Filby seeks a trial by jury and all profits derived from the song, which was featured on T.I.'s hit album King.

T-Pain was in a golf cart accident on Friday (March 27) that has left him with serious cuts and abrasions on his face. He also lost four teeth in the accident. Word is they blamed it on the ah-ah-ah-alcohol. Now, the name T(eeth) Pain makes sense.
Andre 3000 was driving a Porsche at 109 miles/hour in a 65 mph zone when Henry County police clocked him. He was stopped and arrested at about 12:30 a.m. Reportedly, he was singing Gimme The Green Light!!!!
Ice Cube has been cast as a cop in a new action comedy movie titled Ride Along. Cube plays a cop who attempts to mess up his sister's marriage to a white psychiatrist by taking him for a ride during his work day. How funny is it to you that the most gangsta of gangsta rappers are cops in movies and tv shows?
Ice-T is on Law & Order, Tupac was the po-po in Gang Related, and Ice Cube is now playing a cop in Ride Along. How can you rap about Eff The Police and Cop Killer, but play cops in movies? What's next, Rick Ross playing a rapper in jail being tormented by corrections officers?
T.I. appeared in federal court on March 27th, where he was sentenced to one year in prison for buying illegal machine guns and silencers in October of 2007, even though the federal mandate is 4 and 1/2 years for the crime. According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, T.I. could be freed from the feds' custody in as little as ten months for good behavior.
I am still bothered by the fact that T.I.'s sentence is so little. Had this been the average Joe caught with these weapons, the sentence would have been far worse. Everybody makes mistakes, but I feel the message that was sent on this was...Do the crime, but hire some damn good lawyers to get you off.
I believe some kids will think...if T.I can do it, so can I. Won't they be shocked when they get a mandated sentence for a T.I. type of crime!!!
