Why Snoop Dogg And His Wife Shante Nearly Got Divorced

While it’s not usually a surprise when Hollywood couples call it quits, many were stunned when Snoop Dogg and Shante Broadus decided to part ways in 2004. According to Us Weekly, after seven years of marriage, Snoop asked Shante Broadus for a divorce, citing “irreconcilable differences.” However, in a surprising about-face, the divorce never happened.

According to E! News, “The Next Episode” rapper revealed that fame had gotten in the way of his love for Broadus. He shared that he attempted to get a divorce, but when he came back home to his wife and kids, it clicked that nothing could get better than that. Snoop said, “This music industry is a mother, man, and it’ll take your vision and blur it. But God is good, so I understand that I need my wife and my kids in my life—so I threw the papers away.” The rapper joked that if divorce ever surrounds his marriage again, it will be because his wife asked for it, not him.

Although Snoop and Broadus wound up getting back together, it didn’t come easy. Snoop said, “A whole lot of begging and pleading…it was up to me to try to put it back together because I’m the one who said I didn’t want to be a part of it no more…” Despite the bump in the road, the couple moves past it.
