Vanilla Ice, aka Robert Van Winkle, says that his recent burglary arrest is “a mess and I’m dealing with it.”
Appearing on Good Morning America Friday to promote the fifth season of DIY Network’s The Vanilla Ice Project, the rapper couldn’t say much about his legal issues, but shared a bit about what’s going on.
“It’s all blown out of proportion. It’s a mess, and I’m dealing with it,” he said when first asked about the incident. He would repeat variations of those comments in response to co-host Lara Spencer’s additional questions about his legal situation. But he also repeatedly said he couldn’t go into detail.
Van Winkle was arrested and charged with burglary and grand theft last week after Florida investigators discovered several items removed from the house next to the one he was renovating at his house.
On GMA, Van Winkle confirmed that he was renovating the house that the goods were taken from and that that house was being foreclosed upon.
He also shared with GMA some DIY tips for creating expensive-looking home decor.
