Snoop Dogg Brings His Big Family to 'The Addams Family' Premiere after His Grandson's Death
Snoop Dogg and his family are sticking together after recently going through a tragedy. The rapper had fun with his clan last weekend at the premiere of "The Addams Family."
The animated MGM film premiered on Sunday at Westfield Century City in Los Angeles, and Snoop, who voices the character "It," successfully mixed business with pleasure.
Although the rap legend was at the premiere as one of the film’s cast members, he also seemed to have a lot of fun hanging out with family, judging by his social media posts.
Snoop, 47, posed for photos with some of his grandchildren outside the venue and in the theater. The rapper also shared a snapshot of the entire Broadus clan posing on the purple carpet.
"Mi Familia," a proud Snoop captioned the pic. "Addams. Family premiere."
The 2019 "Addams Family" remake, according to Daily Mail, is the latest high-profile project adapted from the beloved Charles Addams cartoon series about a horror family of the same name.
Snoop did not directly address Kai’s death, but he posted a video message of texts
Snoop (real name Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr.) voices "It" in the movie, working alongside co-stars Charlize Theron, Oscar Isaac, Bette Midler, Jennifer Lewis, and Chloe Grace Moretz.
"I was a fan of the Addams Family as a kid," Snoop told reporters, per BCK Online. "When they reached out to me and asked me to be a part of it, I was like, 'I can’t say no because I loved the show so much as a kid.'"
It’s good to see Snoop and his family having fun again after they recently lost the rapper’s grandson, Kai Love.
Kai, born to Snoop’s first child Corde and his partner Soraya, lived for only ten days, reportedly spending most of that short time in a neonatal intensive care unit.
Corde, 25, confirmed the tragedy in a since-deleted Instagram post quoted by ESSENCE:
"My Son Kai brought so much love and positivity into this world. His energy will live on and these 10 days of love will always be special to us. Let’s all cherish life and those we love while we are here. Thank you."

Thank you for all the condolences. I think we missed the biggest lesson tho. My son did all he needed to do in his 10 days here on earth. He has now graduated and continuing to do work. He died in my arms and that feeling of energy will never leave me. Kai wants all of you to kno he’s doing great and wants to continue to inspire those who light is dim. It makes perfect sense to me why 2 spiritual loving and healing people like me and Soraya was given an angel like Kai and now we will use his energy to raise 11 to the best person she can be for ALL of us. Life is beautiful y’all and I want y’all to kno Soraya is at peace and is moving forward with huge smiles and A little baby running around thinking she grown 😁😂🤙🏿. Jus want to use my spotlight for happiness and growth and not anything less than. Thank you! Now let’s get back to our soul purpose - Kai Love
LEANING ON GOD
Snoop did not directly address Kai’s death, but he posted a video message of texts after the sad news broke.
"If you're facing something you don't understand: Choose to trust God," the message read. “Remember all He has done for you. His ways are higher than ours. He is always good."
Kai was Corde’s third child. The budding rapper shares one-year-old daughter Elleven with Soraya while he has a four-year-old son Zion with ex-girlfriend Jessica Kyzer. Snoop also has another granddaughter by his second son Cordell.
