Whenever someone is related to a celebrity, there is a high chance that they will become one. The case is precisely the same for Laura Giaritta, who rose to fame only due to her marriage to Vanilla Ice. The 54-year-old rapper is famous for his musical contribution with the likes of ‘Ice Ice Baby,’ and ‘WTF – Wisdom, Tenacity & Focus.’ He had the support of his longtime beau, Laura, all the time, which led to such massive success.

So, without wasting much time, let us know the net worth and married life of the diva.

Laura Giaritta’s Dramatic Married Life with Vanilla Ice

The life of Laura Giaritta changed big time when she indulged in a romantic relationship with Vanilla Ice. It all started when they met at a party on July 4, 1994. The love birds shared a special connection for an instant as Ice was seeking to create a career with his rap music. Ever since the two started dating, they couldn’t be happier.

After a few years of dating, the lovely pair decided to take things to a new level. Thus, they tied the knot on March 30, 1997, to bind themselves in holy matrimony. As expected, the two married in a lavish ceremony at Star Island mansion in Miami Beach, Giaritta. The love birds became parents for the first time in 1998 as they welcomed their first child Dusti Rain Van Winkle. 

Similarly, only two years later, Giaritta gave birth to their second child, KeeLee Breeze Van Winkle. Furthermore, Rapper Ice shares one daughter Priscilla Love VanWinkle from his previous relationship.

Despite a family together, cracks formed gradually in the relationship between Vanilla Ice and his wife, Laura Giaritta. Similarly, there is a rumour that Billie Eilish & Jesse Rutherford are romantically linked.

Laura Giaritta and Vanilla Ice’s Complicated Divorce

The relationship between Laura Giaritta and her beau, Ice, started deteriorating shortly after their marriage. Surprisingly, the police in Florida arrested Ice in January 2001, as he assaulted his wife on Interstate 595. Consequently, he went on probation and attended therapy sessions. Luckily, both of them kept a cool head back then and decided to mend things together.

In January 2008, the rapper assaulted his wife, Laura Giaritta, again, which got him arrested again. In fact, he pushed his wife, which led to consequences like staying away from his wife and children, but the charges were dropped later in April 2008. The ups and downs in their marriage kept on occurring all the time.

In 2016, Giaritta filed a case in a court in Palm Beach, Florida, and had enough of all the fights and conflicts, which led her to file for a divorce as she labelled the marriage as ‘irretrievably broken.’ Unfortunately, the separation process took longer than expected, primarily through matters like his hesitant behaviour by Ice not to reveal his property. The divorce was finalized in November 2019, which led the musician to celebrate with a party.

Not much is known about Laura’s life following the separation as she went to live a private life. On the contrary, her ex-husband, Vanilla, married a secret girlfriend and had a baby with her. You would be surprised to know how the former SBK singer used to date Madonna in 1991.
