Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Ice Cube and his wife have reached 32 years of marriage
Ice Cube may be known as one of the hardest men in the business, but once you begin peeling through the layers, he’s a softie at heart.
A self-proclaimed gangster, he’s built his reputation as the type of person who fears nothing and no one, someone who is willing to court danger and jeopardize his livelihood in the name of standing up for himself. His public persona, as such, exudes ruthlessness and a tough-as-nails resolve, which does tend to drive people away. If everyone is terrified of you, how will you ever find love?
“It’s a true partnership. I respect my wife and she respects me. I still get the butterflies when I see her. Romance and sex don’t have to fade. I still want her to look at me and say ‘this is the man I still want to be with.’ So have to keep yourself up, your P’s and Q’s, and go for what you know.”
“But sex isn’t overly important to me,” Cube told The Guardian. “Respect and freedom and prosperity are what I care about. Freedom for myself, that is – you gotta start with yourself.”
At the same time, his unyielding personality does allow him to get through most of life’s biggest hurdles with ease and determination. Take, for example, his thirty-year marriage with Kimberly Woodruff. They weren’t meant to get together, but Ice Cube waited patiently and respectfully till his turn came. Once it did, he seized the opportunity by its horns and ensured he would never let his lady go. Their story exemplifies what it means to share a long-term commitment, a commitment that tests you to the limit every day but also inspires you to be your best self.
Let’s chronicle Ice Cube’s relationship with Kimberly and how they’ve been subverting expectations for thirty years and counting. Whether it be in music with hits like “Today Was A Good Day” or in movies like Are We There Yet?, Friday, Barbershop and Ride Along, Cube makes it a point to give his fans what they want. But with such a hectic schedule, it keeps him away from home and his wife, Kim Jackson. In April of 2020, the pair would have been married for 28 years (that’s like a century in the entertainment business).
“The first thing I thought I was, ‘Wow, she could be your woman,’” describe Cube. “The first time we met, she wasn’t feeling me, she was NOT having it. She did not dig me. I think she was in a relationship, so she wasn’t having it. But I ended up seeing her about six months later, and the next time, we had more time to get to know each other. She could feel my vibe and fell in love with your boy!”
