Ice-T & Coco's Flirty Photo Scandal: Why They Were Both Wrong

Sure, Coco made the first move, but both parties are guilty of over-sharing.

CoCo & Ice-T

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.

"Most of [the pics are] disrespectful and in bad taste," Ice-T tweeted. "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 [woman]. That's it. Any more questions, ask [my wife] @CocosWorld."

What he should have done: Approached his wife. Speaking privately—not on Twitter about his own concernswould have much more  contructive, not to mention mature. For a married couple, they should know better. When YourTango sat down with Coco in October, she told us the key to her successful relationship was in fact, that they both had great communication skills. "Our communication is just like the first day we met," she said! Well, then it wasn't very good in the beginning.


As for Coco taking to Twitter, she began by tweeting: "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, she later fessed up. "Ice is right, the pics I took with this man were in poor taste & I disrespected my husband," she shared. "However the pics were the only thing that happened. I feel so sad. The bottom line is I love Ice & I can understand why he's upset. There's no excuse for my actions. I'm so sorry baby & to everyone."

What she should have done:

Well, not posting the pictures to begin with is a start. While it is true that fans and friends take funny photos, we can understand why Ice was upset at her for sharing flirty pictures with another man. Also, while it's understandable that she took to Twitter to defend herself from her husband's tweets—he's your husband. Go in the other room and talk to him about it! There is no need to share it with the world.


Seems that all is well in Coco & Ice-T's world now, though. The couple was spotted out together in New York City Monday night, and in matching leather outfits!
