Celebrities Behaving Badly: Ice Prince admits to cheating on his ex but who, at this point, cares?

These days, Ice is known more for his relationships, or lack thereof, than his music. Can we move this music thing along Ice? Last we left off Ice, former Vice President of Chocolate City, left Chocolate City, launched Super Cool Cats record label, and deliberately attracted so much drama about his romantic relationship, at the time, by saturating the internet with images and discussions about his relationship.

Fast forward to today and with very limited music coming from him, and nothing to show his new label’s progression or addition to the ecosystem, he tells us the romantic interest that he positioned to attract so much controversy is now an ex and that he cheated on her. “As in,” who cares at this point?

In his exclusive interview with Linda Ikeji’s blog/media where he offers this story, he has a nonchalant attitude that guys will be guys but he is just “being honest?” What’s your honesty and what you do in your bedroom with your flame of the moment got to do with being an executive, a label owner and driving your team towards success?  If guys will be guys and cheat, what exactly is the point of your story? A little media attention? Move on, grow up and get back to the music and the business of music. Also, stop granting lame interviews/answering questions that undermine your brand.

Ice, what’s your honesty and what you do in your bedroom with your flame of the moment got to do with being a label owner managing an artist (you) and driving your team towards success?  If guys will be guys and cheat, what exactly is the point of putting this story out there and dragging your ex’s emotions and pain out in the public for round two? A little media attention? Ice, move on, grow up and get back to the music and the business of music. If you need psychological help to address the underlying reasons why you lack the ability to exercise self-control in your relationships, then get counseling, privately.

Also, stop granting interviews/answering questions that undermine your brand. You already struggle so much, as it is, with presenting a credible and sustainable brand. Don’t shoot yourself in the foot more than you already have.

“LIB: Have you ever been cheated on by a girl

I don’t know, I wouldn’t say I know of any. I haven’t caught any of my girlfriends cheating on me. Actually, I always mess up. It’s never them messing up. It always me. I have been blessed to date some of the very nicest girls. I take my time before I get into relationships and I have been blessed to have some amazing women come in my life but I always mess up.

LIB: Give us an example of one time you messed up?

Many times, I cheat just like any other guy and sometimes I’m caught cheating or checking out somebody else. It is not something I’m not proud of but I’m just being honest.

LIB: How do the ladies feel when they find out you cheated on them?

All of them went through hell..lol It is not something I’m proud of. Its not a good thing but I’m just been honest with you because you are sitting down here and talking to me about it and I’m an honest man

LIB: Do you think cheating is something you need to work on?

‘Definitely’

LIB: Do you think your status as a celebrity influences you to cheat?

I don’t think it’s about being a celebrity. It’s just about being a guy.

LIB: Where do you meet the ladies you cheat with

They just find me.. lool!

LIB: Can we say social media has a part to play in this?

I wouldn’t blame it on social media because you can’t reach me on social media. Ask anybody if I have ever replied their dm, I don’t. This is because I feel the ‘dm’ is where the ‘devil meet’. My dms are crazy and every time I open my dms whether it’s Instagram or twitter, the first five messages already make me want to close it because it’s full of bullshit. So I don’t even bother opening it. It is a waste of time for me to click on that arrow. If you need to reach me, you come through my guys. If it is important, you know how to reach me and you won’t dm me. So I won’t blame it on social media. All the people I have any thing to do with, we met in real life, hung out in real life and played in life.

LIB: Did you ever cheat on Maima?

Yeah”

    LOL. You’re so right, though. His tiny brand doesn’t need any more negatives attached to it. All this talk, all these interviews–but where are the hit records? Where?!!
