Vanilla Ice: Madonna Made Me Feel "Disgusting & Cheap"

The rapper explains why the Material Girl's graphic Sex book made him end their eight-month relationship

Vanilla Ice (real name: Robert Van Winkle) and Madonna dated more than 20 years ago, but the rapper still has some pretty strong feelings about it. In a new interview with Britain's News of the World, the star of The Vanilla Ice Project opened up about his fling with the Material Girl.

"She was older than me and a great lover," say Van Winkle, who was 24 at the time.

But after eight months together, their relationship hit the skids. Madge had just released her coffee table book, Sex, for which Van Winkle posed, and he says he was taken back by the final product.

"I thought she was taking pictures and running round naked because she was like that. Then when the book came out I was so embarrassed and ashamed," he admitted. "It was a porno. She threw me in like I was a product off a shelf and I didn't appreciate it. That was it and I ended it. She said she didn't have sex with these men but it looked like she was."

And, it was enough to make him want to end the relationship.

"I broke up with her after she printed that book because I was hurt to be an unwitting part of this slutty package," Van Winkle revealed. "It was disgusting and cheap. We were in a relationship yet it looked like she was screwing all these other people."

Madonna has gone on to have plenty of other lovers and we haven't heard her mention Ice's name in years, so it's pretty safe to say she's over it. But who knew Van Winkle had such strong morals?
