I actually met Ice-T…way back in the day, and I have to say the man was pretty awesome, he was down to Earth and fun. Anywho, the rapper turned actor married Nicole “Coco” Austin on December 31, 2001 and said that she has made him the happiest man alive. He also talked about why she is the perfect wife:
“I think its wrong to promote that when you’re successful that its a bunch of drama and pain. I’m looking at these housewife shows and these broads are mad. I’m like ‘B– You in a mansion. How could you be mad?’ That’s disrespectful to people that have it bad and are struggling.
I’m much more of a Bonnie and Clyde dude…When I seen Coco, I was like ‘damn, this is the caliber of female I’m looking at. Now, I didn’t care if she was black, white, [it] doesn’t really matter to me.
When I got at her, she was just what I was looking for. I was watching ‘The Osbournes’, I’m like ‘would Ozzy even have a house if it wasn’t for Sharon Osbourne? She holds it down’.
So Coco came in and became my assistant, helped me get my life together…since I been with her, I’ve tripled my income. You gon’ keep a woman that helps you make money. So we’ve been together now 11 years. It’s been beautiful. And I live by the rule: “One down b— equals ten funky hoes”.
Hmm not the most romantic man in the world eh? But I think we get the sentiment.
