Recently, Snoop Dogg took to his Instagram page to celebrate his adorable wife in a sweet post. The "Drop It Like It's Hot" crooner also shared a cute black and white photo of himself and his wife.
In the picture, Snoop can be seen leaning in to kiss his wife on her cheek. Shante had a captivating smile on display and looked effortlessly beautiful. While sharing the image, he wrote in the caption:
"Ain't no woman like the one I got @bosslady_ent."
Snoop Dogg, born Cordozar Calvin Broadus, began dating Shante in high school. The pair later got married in 1997 and share three children, sons Corde and Cordell Broadus and daughter Cori Broadus.
The high school sweethearts recently celebrated their 23rd marriage anniversary. However, they have had to battle through several ups and downs to get to their place of happiness.
Snoop and his wife, Shante, have moved on from the cheating drama and are currently enjoying the best of their marriage.
In 2004, their marriage hit a rough patch and the couple nearly got divorced. The couple also had to overcome a tipping point when their youngest child, Cori was diagnosed with lupus at the age of six.
Snoop claimed that coming together as a family to help their daughter beat her health scare was a turning point in their marriage and helped strengthen the bond between them.
The couple managed to ride the waves and on January 12, 2008, they made a big statement when they renewed their vows on Charlie Wilson's 20-acre ranch in front of 200 guests.
More recently, Snoop's marriage was rocked by cheating allegations when YouTube personality Celina Powell claimed through a YouTube video that she had an affair with the music mogul in 2018.
The award-winning rapper never came out to deny or confirm Powell's claims but Shante seemingly responded to the allegations with some cryptic and sad messages on her Instagram.
