Model Coco Austin has stepped forward to silence recent chatter which suggested she may have been unfaithful to her rap veteran husband Ice-T.

Despite steamy photos of Coco embraced by multiple men floating online, she claims the images are irrelevant.

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.’ (Daily Mail)

Back in mid-January, photos of a man grabbing her lower backside popped up online.

January 14, 2013: Just when you thought that the whole Ice T-CoCo pic scandal couldn;t get more wierd . . . we just learned that CoCo is BEGGING a Las Vegas music exec – to take pics of him SQUEEZING HER AZZ off the internet. You see CoCo allowed him, and others to feel up her cakes and take pics of it – but now that theyy posted it online, she has a PROBLEM with it. We’re not even MAD at Coco . . . she’s just doing like she’s SUPPOSED TO DO. We’re mad at ICE for trying to make her a HOUSEWIFE!!! (Media Take Out)

In December, tensions initially flared between Ice and Coco over the leaked poses.

Ice-T tweeted, “Coco’s in Vegas. She has given me her explanation of the pics on the net from her first weeks out there [at Peepshow, where she’s performing] with some dude. She said he knew someone in the crew from our show and would pop up where ever they would go. He also said he knew me. I don’t know dude.” He continued, “Regardless… They would take Posed pics every time. Most of them 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 @Cocosworld,” added Ice-T. He concluded, “Don’t get it twisted… I’m not happy about this sh*t.” (Gossip Cop)

Rapper AP.9 later stepped forward and added fuel to the fire when asked about his relationship with the curvy model.

Ice T’s gonna be pissed … ’cause rapper AP.9 is now strongly insinuating that he’s banging T’s wife Coco. Coco said the pics were harmless … and stated that she’s “happily married.” But this weekend, AP.9 was shamelessly trying to breathe life back into story … because when he was asked about the rumors he was still bangin’ Coco, the rapper looked into the camera like he LOVED the attention and said, “That’s a RUMOR? Is that a rumor?” He added, “No comment man.” When asked if he was worried about retaliation from Ice — AP.9 shot back, “I’m from the hood … I’m not worried about nothin’.” (TMZ)
