Cori’s Illness Saved Snoop And Shante’s Matrimony-dom

Snoop Dogg and Wife Shante

Although your boy Snoop is typically one of the usual suspects in the “Isn’t He Married???” category, it appears that his marriage is ‘doing well’ due to little Cori:

Snoop Dogg has credited his daughter Cori’s battle with lupus with bringing the rapper closer to his wife Shante, insisting the life-threatening illness helped to save their faltering marriage.

The rap superstar, real name Calvin Broadus, filed for divorce from his wife of seven years in 2004, citing irreconcilable differences. The couple reunited months later, prompting Snoop to withdraw the legal petition, and they renewed their vows in 2008. Snoop admits the turning point in their relationship came when young Cori was diagnosed with the autoimmune disorder in 2005 – and her subsequent health battle made the hip-hop star and his wife realize they had to stay “together forever.”

Shante tells People magazine, “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.” Snoop adds, “That’s what it boiled down to. Cori’s lupus showed us we need to be together forever.”

The rapper reveals the couple had turned to a marriage counselor to help them overcome their troubles and he would often escape to the recording studio to cry and gather his emotions. He says, “You always think it’s gonna happen to someone else. Some days in the studio, I’d just cry. It was the only zone I had to express myself.”

However, he’s in awe of how strong Cori, now 11, has been throughout the health crisis – despite struggling with the side effects of the disorder, which caused her hair to fall out and affected her weight. Snoop explains, “My daughter is the love of my life. When she’d lay in bed saying, ‘My brain hurts’, it bothered me so much. I felt helpless… (But) she’s the toughest little thing I’ve ever met, even with the needles.”

And Cori has managed to keep her lupus under control to enjoy a normal childhood. Her proud father adds, “She’s on the honour roll, playing volleyball and softball, living life. She has all this joy. In the beginning lupus was winning. But now Cori is.”

That’s wonderful. We don’t know what kind of ‘situation’ Snoop and Boss Lady have going on, but it has to be hurtful to little Cori to her her dad all hugged up on random broads time and time again. SMH.

    Oh wow, I didn’t know she had lupus, that would explain her thinning hair on his show. I always wondered if something was wrong with her. It’s good to know that she’s overcoming it, poor thing…

    I PRAY THAT EVERY THING WORKS OUT FOR THE CHILD BUT IN ORDER FOR THE WIFE TO BE HAPPY AND STAY HAPPY THE HUSBAND NEEDS TO DO A CHANGE OF CAREER, TO HAVE A STILL BROKEN MARRIAGE AND A SICK CHILD CAN BE VERY DEPRESSING .

  • 2Sweet

    That’s the nicest picture of Snoon & Shante I’ve seen to this day. I love seeing BLACK families staying together no matter the circumstance. And people can say what they want about their “situation” but their children seem like very well-adjusted individuals. It is so sad whenever children have to battle illness like that, but I’m glad lil Cori is pulling thru.

    @Deenj cosign 100% people nowadays are just lazy. Relationships are work and keeping a marriage is even harder work.

    @Baybaybay

    I heard Snoop say Don Magic Juan was telling him to go home.

  • rene

    What do you mean the marriage was saved due to illness of a family member? She is mairred to a rapper, and she either wants to be or not. It seems like every time we turn around she is leaving him for something, I bet he is missrable in this marriage. Who would want to be married to someone who blackmails them every minute? ” If you turn around wrong I will take half of everything and the kids” I am sure this is what goes on.I know she is not complaining about the money he makes.

    It was a critical time for their daughter and they made the right decision.

    Baby girl didn’t need to be stressed out by their divorce when she was fighting for her life.

  • kkbaby

    I say this all the time, I don’t live with Lupus, LUPUS lives with me. I know what lil choc is going through cause I was diagnosis when I was 12 n now I’m a 29yrs old.

  • nicki

    @Deenj I agree with you 100%

    Its so easy to walk away from a marriage, the hard part is staying or sticking around to make it work……You know, For better or worse, Richer or poorer, etc…..

  • DB

    WoW…Lupus? I had no idea. Happy to hear she is doing well.

    But are they together because they found love again while going through this or are they together to keep up appearances and give Kori a two parent home? If it’s for appearances, then that’s why he’s so blatant with his “stuff” while out. They have an “agreement”…or rather, MARRIAGE OF CONVENIENCE.
