After selling over 35 million albums and becoming a household name, Snoop Dogg is a well-loved music mogul and has his own variety show with Martha Stewart. His relaxed, hilarious, and cannabis-influenced persona has connected him with fans around the world.
Although he is primarily known for success in his professional life, Snoop has also had many accomplishments in his personal life; one of them being his marriage.

In a Hollywood world where whirlwind marriages and divorces are normalized, Snoop and his wife Shante Broadus have defied the celebrity odds with a marriage that has lasted 24 years. Let’s dive into their relationship to learn more!
What does Shante Broadus do?
Shante Broadus (formerly known as Shante Taylor) was born in California in 1971. She attended Polytechnic High School in Long Beach. It just so happened that Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr, who would eventually become Snoop Dogg, also attended the same high school.
Shante and Snoop met there and began their relationship as high school sweethearts before Snoop Dogg was ever in the spotlight. The couple got married on June 14th, 1997.

As Snoop’s rapping career took off, Shante worked behind the scenes as his manager. A woman with a boss mindset, Shante founded BLE, Boss Lady Entertainment. Shante also launched The Broadus Collection, a trendy candle and headscarf line.
In 2021, the duo announced that Shante would become Snoop’s official manager. Of this decision, Snoop said, “Shante has been guiding my career behind the scenes from day one. She has always been my final gut check with all my decisions, and I wouldn’t be where I am today without her. I am grateful to have her as my official manager, helping to build the Snoop Dogg empire together.”
Shante and Snoop have three children together. Snoop also has a fourth child, Julian Corrie Broadus, whom he had with his previous high school girlfriend, Laurie Holmond.
Recently, the couple’s daughter Cori has made headlines for getting candid about her mental health.

Cori posted on her social media,“The last few weeks, my mental has not been so great. At one point I tried to end my life, but you & my family really give me a purpose to live & helped me realize life is much more than materialistic things & you gotta just keep pushing through the bulls–t. THANK YOU… #mentalhealthawareness.”
Although Snoop and Shante’s marriage has lasted long, they have had their ups and downs like many marriages. Unfortunately, Cori struggled with lupus as a child, which took a toll on Snoop and Shante’s marriage.
However, the couple noted that their daughter Cori helped save their marriage. Shante said, “Without [Snoop], I don’t know what I’d have done. It’s amazing how this all turned out. We were gonna get a divorce. But we wouldn’t have gotten through it [the lupus diagnosis] that way.” Alongside her parents’ marriage, Cori’s condition also improved.
Their daughter’s lupus diagnosis was not the only thing that put a strain on the couple’s marriage. On May 21, 2004, Snoop Dogg filed for divorce from his wife, citing irreconcilable differences.

There were allegations of infidelity, and Snoop even admitted that he cheated. However, Snoop Dogg eventually realized he had made a big mistake, and worked hard to win his wife back. On January 12, 2008, the pair renewed their vows.
Although the couple has had their ups and downs, Snoop and Shante have stuck by each other’s side and exemplified what it means to make a marriage work against all odds. The future looks bright for Mr. and Mrs. Broadus!
