Update 7/27/15: Coco took to Twitter to confirm her pregnancy shortly after this article was published. The pair is expected to discuss Coco’s progress into the pregnancy, the baby’s gender and other details when their new talk show, “Ice & Coco,” airs next month on FOX.


Apparently, Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker aren’t the only reality stars expecting a bundle of joy.

According to TMZ, Tracy “Ice-T” Marrow, 57, and Nicole “Coco” Marrow, 36, are expecting their first child together. It is currently unclear how far along Coco is, and the gender of the baby has not been disclosed as of yet.

Ice-T fathers two children from previous relationships, LaTesha, 39, and Ice, 23. He also has two grandchildren, including 20-year-old Elyjah Marrow, who was charged in the accidental shooting of his roommate earlier this year.

Coco has been rather open about her desire to have a baby, but confessed to feeling pressured about when she would do so.

“There’s a lot of peer pressure for me,” she told E! News in 2012. “It’s not just my family that’s giving it, it’s the world…When the time’s right, I will. I feel like I’m still young, and I have time.”

Ice, however, shared that he would be on board whenever his wife decided that she was ready.

“At the end of the day, it’s Coco’s call,” said Ice, 53. “She puts in the order and I can do the deed.”

Ice and Coco are already the proud parents of two adorable English bulldogs, Spartacus and Maximus.

Rapper Ice-T’s grandson has been indicted in the death of his roommate.

The 20-year-old, Elyjah Marrow was arrested last June after accidentally shooting his roommate Daryus Johnson, in the chest.

Daryus, 19-years-old, was shot with a stolen gun. According to People,

Police found Johnson unconscious at Bentley Manor Apartments in Marietta, Georgia, and he was later pronounced dead after being transported to a nearby hospital.

“Marrow was not using proper firearms safety when handling the gun,” Officer David Baldwin told The Marietta Daily Journal at the time. “That reckless handling of the firearm is what led to Johnson being accidentally shot and eventually killed.”

Elyjah has been indicted on multiple charges including, involuntary manslaughter, possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, theft by receiving stolen property and possession of firearm during commission of a felony reckless conduct.

It’s truly sad to see a young black man in a situation like this.

Many celebrities make a trip to the plastic surgeon to have work done at some point in their career. However, sometimes these celebs get a little too carried away trying to enhance one part of their body, like “the girls.”

Naya Rivera currently stars on the hit show “Glee” and is engaged to rapper Big Sean but last week she made headlines for a totally different reason. Pictures surfaced of the “Glee” star with her breasts remarkably bigger than they were before. However, Rivera has denied getting a boob job even though it appears she’s gone up at least two cup sizes.

Say Cheese! Celebs Caught Cheating By The Paparazzi

Being a celebrity means you trade your privacy for fame and fortune, so you’d think stars would be more careful when they’re out cheating on their partners. You just never know when there could be an overly eager and stealthy paparazzi lurking in the bushes — as these famous cheaters found out the hard way.

Kristen Stewart

Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson met on the set of the popular Twilight movie back in 2008. Although they didn’t come out as a couple publicly, their relationship was no secret. Fans of the franchise were just as heartbroken as Pattinson when Us Weekly published photos of Stewart and much older director of Snow White and the Huntsmen Rupert Sanders making out like the plane was going down. Stewart and Pattinson tried to move past her transgressions but they eventually split up. Sanders’ ten-year marriage to wife and model Liberty Ross was also a casualty of their extramarital affair. Ross filed for divorce at the top of this year and is seeking spousal support.

What ‘Chu Say Boo? Caption This Pic Of 2 Chainz With His ‘New Boo’ Mariska Hargitay

We’ve seen Rihanna and Chris Brown lookalikes on “Law & Order: SVU,” but are you ready for the real 2 Chainz to hit the set of the crime drama? If not, that’s too bad because it’s happening — according to this pic the self–professed “hair weave killer” posted on Instragram last night.

Imagine my surprise as I scrolled my timeline and came across this image of 2 Chainz with his arm around a scary looking white woman and then realized…gasp!… that’s Olivia Benson. From the grin on his face — and the look of confusion on hers — it’s clear to see he’s a bit more excited about this new venture than Mariska Hargitay is, especially since he put a caption “my new boo” and she’s looking like “why do I have to do this?”

At first I thought 2 Chainz might have just been hanging around on set, but then I noticed another pic of him and Ice-T and a third image that appears to be a script with his name on it and that of the character I assume he’ll be playing, Calvin “Pearlie” Jones. Going by that name, it’s probably safe to assume he’ll be playing either a pimp, drug dealer, rapper or a regular negro living in his mama’s basement.

As interested as I am in catching those details, I’m more concerned with this photo right now and what you think was going through both of their heads in this shot. Caption the pic and tell us what you think.



Does Ice Really Love Coco? & Why Pimping Ain’t Always Easy

Ice T and Coco

I’ve been loosely following the whole Coco Austin and Ice T sex tape scandal and I’m not sure if I should feel sad for Coco, and subsequently her husband Ice T, or chalk this up to just a matter of chickens coming home to roost?

I know that there is a delicious irony in seeing a former rapper and self-professed pimp, who made a career of objectifying women including his first wife, now wallow in the same subjugating cess pool he had once championed. However, it is hard for me to celebrate when there is the exploitation of another woman at afoot, even if she is not the beacon of women progression we hope for.

For all intents and purposes, Coco, born Nicole Austin, is the manifestation of everything that is wrong and chauvinistic with our culture. Not only was her entire image birthed out of a desire to appease the male gaze but more specifically, her entire packaging has co-oped and capitalized on a certain bottom heavy aesthetic, which has largely been synonyms with black women. The anomaly of being a white girl with a booty has provided Austin with opportunities that women with dark hues and more genetically natural curves are not afforded, particularly a starring role in a Vegas show. The mainstream sees Austin’s naughty girl routine as bubbly, vivacious and of course, sexay. However those same descriptives are rarely found or used when discussing your average video vixen. In the latter, we are suppose to feel nothing by pity and sympathy for them. Last I checked nobody was offering Karrine “Superhead” Steffans a show anywhere and her sexual posturing is probably more authentic than Austin’s carbon copy in platinum blonde. But I guess when you are white, it will get it done. Hat tip to Jen the Pen…

However the angst over Austin’s hot persona pales in comparison to the sheer ridiculousness that is the Ice-T/Coco’s relationship – or at least the relationship they play out in front of cameras. There is no doubt that the couple loves playing up the whole pimp ho dynamic, And who can blame them? The entire pimp culture has been glamorized through not only Ice T’s music but through films like The Mack and Dolomite. The two have even gone as far as to dress in the attire at a recent award show. But while the Tees revel in the romanticized version of pimping, mainly the bedazzled pimp cups and barely there attire, real life girls (and some boys) are being sold against their wills into prostitution and used as sex slaves. In fact the average age for a girl recruited into the sex trafficking industry is only 12 years old. Fact of the matter is that pimp culture, violence and sexual abuse and manipulation are intertwined. And the sexual domination of mostly women and children by men is probably not the healthiest image you want to promote as man and wife.

This, of course, leads me to the sex tape, which is being shopped around from some rapper, who no one has ever heard of. And perhaps that the point of getting the tape out there. Name recognition, mainly at the expense of a woman, whose own image is clearly not of her own making nor benefit. Case in point, check out how Ice-T responded when he found out about his wife’s Vegas follies. First he publicly chastised his own wife and then he addressed the “haters:”

Don’t worry about me… Worry about earthquakes and hurricanes.. I got this. It’s not about the come up…. It’s all about the comeback!
Everyone with opinions about MY personal life.. Can ‘Eat a Hot Bowl of D-cks’ Check YOUR b-tch.
My wife checks 100k a week….. Worry about your broke ho….. Not your b-tch. Not your concern.

In all this grandstanding and boosting, however, are there any words directed at the guy in question, even after he has threatened Ice T with physical violence? In the end Ice T still gets to maintain his role as the pimp in the situation while Austin, who had to apologize publicly to her husband for her “indiscretions,” bares the brunt of what often befalls those classified as the product. It would seem that it is only cool and respectable when Austin embodied the free-wheeling, sexay girl persona just as long as the beneficiary was Ice T, her husband. But being sexually free and public for herself? Well now, that is just flat out hoe-ish. I guess whoever said pimping wasn’t easy must never thought about what it is like to be the hoe.

My Ice-T/Coco Moment: The Time My Man Took Indecent Photos With Other Women And Thought It Was Okay

December 20th, 2012 - By Clarke Gail Baines

You probably haven’t been paying much attention like that, but last week in Hollyweird, there was drama between rapper/actor Ice-T and his wife, the forever half-dressed Coco. While the “model” is well-known for showing off her interesting assets via Instagram, her hubby wasn’t too happy to see that while in Vegas, she took some pics with another rapper, named AP.9, that were just a bit too friendly. Cheeks were touching, kissy faces were made, there was even some snuggling. And while Coco probably thought they were innocent, when the images were put all together in picstitch form, it’s clear that she should have been somewhere with her husband and not hugged up with this random fool. Ice felt the same way, because he lambasted his lady on Twitter for the pictures:

“Don’t get it twisted, I’m not happy about this s**t. Most of [the pics] are disrespectful and in bad taste. She’s made me look and feel like s**t. I say this on Twitter because there’s no way to avoid the obvious misconduct of a married couple.”

And if that wasn’t bad enough, the rapper she was doing the most with in the photos, AP.9, has most recently claimed that he has pictures of Coco naked that she took while with him in a private room. Clearly this guy is not feeling any kind of way about causing drama between the couple, but that’s what thirsty people do for attention, right?

I really didn’t care much about this story when it dropped. I don’t watch the couple’s reality show, I’m not really a fan of Coco’s attire a majority of the time, and when Ice-T isn’t on Law & Order: SVU, I honestly don’t need to know what he’s up to. But I found myself feeling a certain way after I saw the pictures of Coco and AP.9 being very inappropriate. This is because I suddenly remembered that I had been in Ice-T’s place, where my partner was caught taking suspect pics with other women, and it was sooooooo embarrassing.

While in a pretty serious relationship in college, my boyfriend at the time was celebrating his birthday. I had a lot of big plans for him the day before, but as his big day came upon us, I came down with flu-like symptoms that I couldn’t hide for anything. We did lunch, I gave him his gift, and seeing how terrible I appeared physically, my boyfriend thanked me for my attempts, but told me I was more than welcome to go home and get some rest. And that’s what I did.

The next day, I woke up feeling much better, only to see that my boyfriend had been tagged in a bunch of photos that appeared in my timeline on Facebook. As a quick back story, for some reason, my boyfriend was friends with a girl that I had known first and fallen out with. I accepted that they were cool because I’m not one to give demands about who people can and can’t hang out with. But because she and I fell out so badly, imagine my surprise and rage when I saw that not only had she been in the photos with my boyfriend, but she was acting very inappropriately with him in every picture they were in. This heffa girl and two of her friends went to my boyfriend’s dorm room and brought him a cake for his birthday. While that was sweet, what proceeded was a hot a** mess. Back in the day, Facebook was all about bored people taking pictures on a random night and putting the pics online to show everyone, and that’s what they did. These ladies proceeded to kiss my man on his cheeks, sit on his lap, wrap their hands around his chest, jump up in his arms (booty all in the air), and there was even one EXTREMELY disrespectful picture of my enemy and my boyfriend, him holding her legs as if they were doing the wheelbarrow position (clothes on). She was hella smug in the photos, almost as if she was laughing at my dumb sick behind as I was laid up in the bed trying to get back to my healthy self. And while I could have snatched her (I did in my head), I came for his head, not hers, because he should have known and done better.

When I picked up the phone and called him, I can’t tell you how enraged I was. Not only had he behaved inappropriately, and with a chick I had personal issues with, but he embarrassed me by letting himself be tagged in photos that were seen by many people. After breaking down for him all the ways in which he had gone wrong, he clicked through the photos and realized that they were really and truly bad. He apologized for his mistake then, but even now, the photos are still under “Photos of Me” on his page. This is one of like 200 reasons why things didn’t work out between us.

You know, it’s already hard enough for people to be comfortable with folks having friends of the opposite sex, but when stuff like this happens, trust that you’re supposed to have in your partner definitely starts to diminish a little. What my ex-boyfriend did that he thought was so innocent was actually almost as bad as him cheating, because he not only played himself publicly, but he played me publicly too. Not to mention that he had my friends calling me acting a fool too (one of my close girlfriends at school even took it upon herself to have words with that ex-friend/enemy of mine and drama ensued). Aside from trust being a huge thing in a relationship, RESPECT is essential. When a person does things to compromise their relationship because they were trying to be “cute” or friendly with others, they’re being extremely disrespectful. And even though Ice shouldn’t have checked her on Twitter (tackalicious), she definitely needed a talking to. While me and my college boo didn’t make it for this reason and many more, hopefully this issue will be something Ice and Coco can get past. But for now, let’s hope that the only person she stays hugged up on is her man. Oh, and maybe those really cute bulldogs they own (no more balls in face pics though please)…

‘I Wouldn’t Care If You Were A Prostitute, And You Hit Every Man That You Ever Knew…’ Celebs Who Don’t Care About Their Woman’s Past

Women like to shade other ladies with questionable or busy pasts, but it’s clear a lot of men don’t feel the same way. These 15 celebrities didn’t care where their boo-thangs had been before they dated, slept with,  or married them — and they don’t care what we have to say about it either.

Lil Wayne

We couldn’t start this list without acknowledging the man who inspired the headline. When you come out with a song titled, “Prostitute Flange” and announce, “I Wouldn’t Care If You Were a Prostitute and You Hit Every Man That You Ever Knew. See It Wouldn’t Make A Difference If That Was Way Before Me And You Girl,” you can only assume he’s living what he’s rapping about. We can’t say if he was literally speaking on the past of ex-girlfriend Trina, who joined him on that track, but every now and again Weezy’s face pops up in an Instagram pic with a random groupie, and that special relationship he has with Superhead is oh so suspect.

Ice-T & Coco: Do They Need A Lesson in Communication?

From YourTango

A few nights ago, while out partying in Las Vegas Coco Austin, wife of rapper and television actor Ice-T, engaged in some friendly flirting—which was probably totally innocent. However, Coco decided it was a good idea to take suggestive photos of said flirting, and post the photos on her Instagram account for both her husband and the world to see.

According to Us, the photos showed Coco cozying up to rapper AP.9 —one was of Coco playfully closing her eyes while the rapper kisses her cheek; another of AP.9 burrying his face in Coco’s neck while she provocatively stares into the camera.

Ice-T was not pleased by the photos. And he made his opinions loud and clear shortly after on Twitter.
