Snoop Dogg married his high school girlfriend, Shante Taylor, on June 14, 1997, by which point they already had two children together – sons Cordé and Cordell.

After they had married, Snoop and Shante then welcomed their daughter Cori in 1999.

However, their relationship has not always been plain sailing, and the rapper filed for divorce in May 2004.

But in January 2008, the high school sweethearts renewed their vows, having never actually got divorced.

Shante is not just Snoop’s wife but also his manager and an entrepreneur, having founded Boss Lady Entertainment, a corporation that handles labels and recording studios.

Shante became Snoop’s official manager in 2021, taking over all parts of his enterprises.

Cordé Broadus

Snoop’s oldest son is Cordé Broadus, born in 1994. He has three children of his own

Cordé Broadus is the oldest of Snoop’s children, who the rapper welcomed on August 21, 1994, with his wife Shante.

Cordé, 29, has followed his father in forging a music career and performs under the alias Kalvin Love.

Snoop’s eldest son also made him a grandfather for the first time in 2015, when he had a son, Zion, with his then-girlfriend Jessica Kyzer.

Cordé also has two children with partner Soraya Love – a son called Leo and a daughter called Elleven.

Between their births, the couple tragically lost another son, Kai, when he was just 10 days old.

Cordell Broadus

Snoop’s second son, Cordell, was  natural athlete growing up, but left football behind for creative pursuits

Snoop and Shante’s second son, Cordell, was born on February 21, 1997.

A natural athlete, Cordell, 26, grew up playing football and played for the University of California, Los Angeles.

He committed to UCLA in February 2015, but quit the side that August to pursue his creative passions.

Coach Jim Mora told the LA Times in a statement: ‘Cordell informed me yesterday that he has decided to pursue other passions in his life – in particular his love of film through his company Film School Productions.’

Cordell had already starred alongside his father and Wiz Khalifa in Mac And Devin Go To High School three years earlier, but has pivoted to directing in adulthood.

His company teased a movie about his family in 2020, which would be called Son Of Kings.

He told Women’s Wear Daily: ‘I took a writing class at UCLA for film and the professor always said, write what you know. I know my family, so I want to start right there in my film career.’

Cordell has also made a career move into music, releasing Bron And Bronny, featuring his father, in 2020.

As is the case with his eldest son, Snoop also has grandchildren from Cordell and his girlfriend Phia Barragan.

They had their daughter Cordoba in March 2019, and son Chateau two years later.

Julian Corrie Broadus

Snoop had his third child, Julian Corrie, in a different relationship – with Laurie Holmond.

Julian, 26, was born on June 18, 1998, and has grown up pursuing a career in the tech industry.

He is a partner of NFT and ‘metaverse’ company Voxel X Network, and thanked his father in 2023 for having ‘paved the way so I can do anything I wanted’.

Snoop’s only daughter, Cori, was born on June 22, 1999, and she has also gone into the music industry under the alias Choc – the name she was affectionately called by her father when she was younger.

Cori, 24, is also an entrepreneur and co-owns beauty company Choc Factory with her beau Wayne Duece.

At just six years old, Cori was diagnosed with lupus, a chronic autoimmune condition that causes joint pain, skin rashes and tiredness.

Lupus can also cause hair loss, and her parents launched The Broadus Collection – a range of scarves and headwraps that were inspired by Cori’s journey.

The range’s online shop is accompanied by the message: ‘Cori didn’t let her diagnosis break her spirit, instead she began to wrap her head in beautiful scarves.

‘In support Shante and Snoop started wrapping their heads alongside her, making headscarves a family staple.

‘The Broadus family was inspired to create scarves to support the Lupus community in embracing their beauty and expressing themselves through their scarves.’

Speaking with People about her lupus battle in September, she said she had been ‘better than I’ve ever been’ after taking a more natural approach to her well-being.

‘I stopped taking all of my medication like five months ago,’ she said. ‘I’m just doing everything natural, all types of herbs, sea moss, teas. I started working out, drinking lots of water. So now I think my body’s like, okay, this is the new program and she’s getting used to it.’

In January 2024, Cori revealed that she had a stroke in a post on her Instagram Stories, writing from hospital: ‘Like I’m only 24, what did I do in my past to deserve all of this’

In 2022, Cori became engaged to her boyfriend Wayne Duece. ‘The easiest YES ever @wayneduece I love you so much and can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with youu,’ she posted to Instagram along with the moment he proposed.

‘Can’t wait to share my last name w/ you My beautiful fiancé,’ Wayne wrote on the app.

In January 2024, Cori revealed that she had a stroke in a post on her Instagram Stories.

‘I had a severe stroke this am. I started breaking down crying when they told me. Like I’m only 24, what did I do in my past to deserve all of this,’ she wrote from hospital.
