CoCo Austin has apologized for her racy Vegas photos, admitting they disrespected husband Ice-T.
Over the weekend, Instagram photos showed CoCo, a model, playfully posing with rapper AP.9 in Vegas, where she is currently performing in the burlesque act “Peepshow” (subbing for a pregnant Holly Madison).
In the photos, AP.9 could be seen kissing CoCo on the cheek and touching her neck. Ice-T, rapper and star of Law and Order SVU, was not pleased, speaking out on Twitter about the incident over the weekend: “Most [are] disrespectful and in bad taste. She’s made me look and feel like sh*t. ‘I say this on Twitter because there’s no way to avoid the obvious misconduct of a married couple.That’s it. Any more questions ask [CoCo].”
Ice promptly deleted the angry tweets. Later that day, CoCo woke up to a social media maelstrom, but tried to downplay the photos: “Woke up to people in a panic about some pics. Please guys, I’m happily married, sometimes fans & friends take silly pics. It’s harmless.”
However, now CoCo is changing her tune, admitting to disrespecting Ice-T.
CoCo has now released a public apology to her husband. “Ice is right, the pics I took with this man were in poor taste & I disrespected my husband. However the pics were the only thing that happened. I feel so sad,” she said.
“The bottom line is I love Ice and I can understand why he’s upset,” CoCo continued. “There’s no excuse for my actions. I’m so sorry baby and to everyone.”
Ice-T and CoCo have been married for 11 years. No word yet on whether the drama will play out on their E! series, Ice Loves CoCo. Thus far, the show has focused on the strong marriage between the actor and model, as well as their English bulldogs. Ice-T and CoCo were spotted Monday night together in New York, so for now they appear to be working things out.
