Rapper-turned-property tycoon Vanilla Ice has appeared on TV to further discuss his embarrassing burglary arrest in Florida, insisting the saga is “just a mess”.
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.
“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.
