Vanilla Ice Is Reportedly Embroiled In Some Paternity Drama

June 7, 2023 / Posted by:

It’s funny that Vanilla Ice (born name: Rob Van Winkle) was quick to take all of the credit for creating his first baby, “Ice Ice Baby,” despite all of our ears hearing it, all of our eyes seeing him, and MarioChocolateJohnson taking the blame for it–which all suggests otherwise. But, it looks like it’s going to take a DNA test and an appearance in court for him to take credit for a 5-year-old daughter he made with his longtime girlfriend, Kirra Hentz. She’s asking the courts to force Ice to take a DNA test in an effort to establish paternity so he’ll pay child support, and they can determine custody arrangements. So take off your Reebok Pumps, microwave some Totino’s, and plop down on your hideous geometric-print couch; because we could have ourselves a nostalgic 1990s The Maury Povich Show-style “you ARE/you ARE NOT the father” moment.

Radar Online says it’s unclear if Rob and Kirra had ever married, though she recently filed court documents using his last name. They were unmarried when they had the child and are now living apart. The two must not be VIP kickin’ it anymore since Kirra wants to establish that Rob’s the father so they can figure out custody, and so he’ll reach into the pockets of his Hammer Pants for some of his dirty Mar-a-Lago money and pay up.

According to court documents obtained by, Kirra Hentz asked the court to establish Vanilla Ice [real name: Robert Van Winkle] as the father of the little girl named Priscilla.

In addition, she asked the court to set up a custody arrangement and award her child support. Kirra filed the petition using Vanilla’s last name but it’s unclear if they are legally married.

In her petition, Kirra said they both live in Florida but are currently at separate homes. She said they were not married when they conceived their child, born in June 2018.

The documents give us a primer on how babies are made and include the shocking revelation that Ice allegedly doesn’t spend much time with Priscilla.

“The parties engaged in sexual relations resulting in the potential conception and gestation of the minor child …. [Vanilla Ice] may be the biological father of the minor child and genetic testing should be ordered to confirm” he is the father, the petition read.

Kirra said she should be awarded most of the custody with the rapper has “limited time-sharing with the minor child.”

Kirra’s also asking for Rob to pay her legal fees. He hasn’t commented on any of this, but it seems like at least as of two years ago, he acted like he WAS the father:

And here’s Rob and Kirra in happier times:

Rob’s marriage before he got with Kirra was chaotic shambles, so this probably won’t end smoothly either. It’s too bad we no longer have “Jerry! Jerry! Jerry!” to step in to make things immeasurably messier in front of an audience of millions help them talk this out.
