When news of the TV series Ice Loves Coco was first announced, many critics were sceptical about its staying power. Audiences have been charmed by the couple's surprisingly sweet relationship and heartened that the man who once famously penned the track Cop Killer should also be such an unbridled softie when it came to his wife.
Which makes what happened at the end of last year so surprising. While in Las Vegas, where Coco is performing in the burlesque show Peepshow - and where Ice-T was noticeably absent - she was photographed with her arm around the Californian rapper AP9. He is shown kissing her cheek and nuzzling his face into her neck. Coco responded that although nothing transpired between herself and AP9, "Ice is right, the pics I took with this man were in poor taste and I disrespected my husband, however, the pics were the only thing that happened."
Rapper AP9 then insisted he had naked pictures of Coco - the implication being that far more happened between them than simply posed photos - and as if that weren't enough for the beleaguered Coco, she was then pictured earlier this month having her famed derriere being groped by another chap, this time a man by the name of Moose Diesel. Mention of the photos though causes Coco to sigh. "Do I want to set the record straight? No," she replies, "because that's old news. And those pictures (with Moose Diesel) are old too. People are going to think what they think and there's nothing I can do about it. But people were also saying my booty was fake too, no matter what I said or did, so there's nothing I can do about that either.
"Ice and I just live our own lives," she adds. "I have to answer to him and he has to answer to me, and that's it. We don't care about the outside world and even though it can be harsh out there, we just have to deal with it." After the scandal erupted, rumours abounded that the couple were about to split, but, says Coco, "there's no truth to that rumour at all. I look at couples in the street who are in their sixties and have been together for 40 years and they're my idols. That's Ice and me for sure. We already feel like that because we've been together so long."

'Well hello there, baby bump!'
Kim Kardashian gave fans a peek at her growing baby bump. The 31-year-old, who is expecting her first child with boyfriend Kanye West, posted a snap on her Instagram page from a photo shoot recently. Her sister Khloe can be seen lifting up the peplum ruffle on her little black dress to reveal her pregnant form while the pair chat on vintage phones. Kim captioned the picture: "Well hello there! #PoppedOuttaNowhere!"
As well as her business duties for the Kardashian Kollection, the reality TV star has been spotted at the gym twice in as many days. And while Kim is doing her best to stay fit and healthy during her pregnancy, she admitted to fans on Twitter that she was feeling tired and apprehensive about hitting the gym. She wrote this week: "Was so lazy but had to get that workout in! I'm so not a night workout person."
Kim, whose baby is due in July, recently admitted she is terrified of piling on too much weight during her pregnancy. Kim returned from a break in Paris and has since been promoting her new E! series Kourtney and Kim Take Miami.
