Did Madonna Propose To Vanilla Ice In The 1990s?

During a Tuesday (1.31) interview with Jenny Hutt of the Just Jenny podcast, Vanilla Ice claimed that Madonna proposed to him during the early 1990s.

Born Robert Van Winkle, the now-55-year-old, former rap star addressed his eight-month long relationship with the female pop superstar in 1991 and 1992 and disclosed her wedding plans, stating:

“She even proposed to me.” “I mean things were going so crazy and fast man.” “I was just like, ‘What? I thought the guy was supposed to do that.'” “‘What do you mean? Wait a minute, this is too fast. I’m just getting started here and I’m way too young for this.'”

The ‘Ice Ice Baby’ hitmaker explained he and Madonna (born Madonna Louise Ciccone) first met in the early ’90s when she attended one of his New York City performances, but despite his excitement at seeing her “dancing her a*s off” in the audience, Robert felt intimidated by her celebrity status. At the time, he was in his early 20s and just starting out, while Madonna was in her early-30s.

“I remember she came back to the dressing room and said hello to me, and she kind of gave me the sexy eyes and I was like… ‘I must be way, way mistaken on that,'” he revealed.

Despite their collective global success, Ice stated he and she had about as normal a relationship as possible but that their relationship took a downturn after the release of Madonna’s explicit 1992 coffee table Sex book that featured risqué images of Ice that he allegedly did not consent to. 

“I was dating her during that time, so I had no idea about a sex book, I’m doing my own thing,” Ice recalled. “I said, ‘How could you do that to me? And why did you do that to me?’ I could’ve sued her. I didn’t want to. I was like, ‘I don’t need that controversy. Let’s just let it go and you go your way, I go mine.'”
