They’ve been married since 1997.
Snoop Dogg and his wife Shante Monique Broadus have been married for what seems like forever. She has stood by her man through thick and thin — and even some recent cheating rumors. But how much do we really know about the rock in Snoop’s life? Who is Snoop Dogg’s wife?
Who is Snoop Dogg’s wife, Shante Monique Broadus? She’s Snoop’s high school sweetheart.
Shante and Snoop have been together from the very beginning way before big bank accounts and a huge rapping career. The couple met back in high school when she was still Shante Taylor and wed on June 14, 1997 at The Ritz Carlton Hotel in Marina Del Rey, California. Fun fact: both the bride and groom wore all white
She appeared on her husband’s reality series.
From 2007 to 2009, Snoop Dogg had his very own reality show calledSnoop Dogg’s Father Hood, airing on E!. The show featured the headline, “This Aint The Huxtables” and followed the rapper and his family, giving fans a front-row seat as the rapper balanced his career and fatherhood.
Though she wasn’t in every episode, Broadus still made appearances here and there, and we learned that her husband’s secret name for her is “boo.” Yes, we hear this name in his music, too, which may be a term of endearment to honor his wife.
Snoop and his wife have two sons and a daughter.
Shante has three children, all with Snoop. They share sons: Cordé (born 1994) and Cordell (born 1997), and daughter, Cori (born 1999) and of course, they all have special nicknames. Snoop calls his daughter Cori “Choc”, son Cordell “Rook”, and his oldest son Corde is called “Spank”.
Their daughter was diagnosed with Lupus.
Their daughter, Cori, was only 6 years old when she was diagnosed with Lupus.
Lupus is a “chronic (long-term) disease that can cause inflammation and pain in any part of your body. It’s an autoimmune disease, which means that your immune system — the body system that usually fights infections — attacks healthy tissue instead.” It most commonly will affect your internal organs (especially your kidneys and heart), skin and joints.
Her parents first noticed light spots on Cori’s skin and weeks later, her hair started to fall out. She also experienced dramatic weight loss. “I felt helpless,”Snoop said. “No power, no friends.” His wife added, “No one could tell me what was wrong. They drew tons of blood and said she has old-person cells. They gave her all kinds of [medication]. But she went downhill.”
Thankfully, the doctors were able to properly diagnose her and Cori now leads a healthy life. She has even followed in her father’s footsteps and loves to sing and make music. She has already released three singles and you guessed it: her dad has even appeared on some tracks.
She’s been in trouble with the law.
Snoop isn’t the only one with a rap sheet. Broadus was arrested back in 2008 with a DUI. Shortly after she had taken her booking photo and arrest, she was released with a citation, as there’s no bail needed for DUIs charges in Fullerton, California where she was arrested.
Broadus and her family were close with the Bryant family.
When world found out about the devastating loss of both Kobe Bryant and his 13-year-old daughter, Gigi, Shante quickly took to Instagram to share her love and condolences. She shared photos of both her and her son posing with Kobe and captioned the photo with “sending Love To @vanessabryant And Family @snoopdogg Had So Much Love For @kobebryant He Was His Biggest Fan Ever R.I.P. #Kobe And #GiGi The Broadus Family.” The first person to comment on the photo was her husband, Snoop, who said, “He was my and will always be my favorite person in life glad he knew how much I loved him. Thanks boo @bosslady_ent U made me smile with this post.”
