Rap veteran Ice-T may be largely responsible for his wife Coco Austin turning into a headline-making generator these past few weeks as new “Ice Loves Coco” sneak peek footage shows him encouraging her to relocate to Las Vegas.

In the footage, Ice pushes for Coco to pack her bags and spend a short time in Sin City.

In a sneak peek from an upcoming episode of Ice Loves Coco, the rapper ironically convinces his bootylicious wife to move to Las Vegas for several months to star inPeepshow, and RadarOnline.com has the video. “Three months. At the end of the day you are handling your business. You are doing what you want to do. And it’s like a vacation. Look at it like a working vacation,” Ice tells Coco, attempting to persuade her take the job. “What is going to fall apart?” Coco, who is concerned that leaving NewJersey for three months will get in the way of her dog park business venture and will strain her relationship with her husband, voices her concerns, but Ice continues to talk her into going.

Despite Coco’s initial resistance, Ice continues to persuade his wife she should head out West.

“You gotta clear your mind. I understand that we don’t want to be broke up and get away from each other, but we gonna handle that. You can make this move.” “I know I can make the move. I’m venting right now,” Coco sternly protests. “You get kind of hyper when I vent cause you don’t understand. I’m just basically telling you what is inside my head. So you jumping on me is not going to help the situation. I just gotta make sure I deal with it correctly.” (RadarOnline)

Shortly after her move out to Las Vegas, Coco got linked into affair rumors with rapper AP.9.

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)

AP.9 later stepped forward and added fuel to the fire when asked about 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)
