Rap singer Snoop Dogg declared he doesn't want to divorce his wife Shante Broadus. Snoop blames the music industry and the money on their split, admitting he cheated his wife of eight years.
He says: "I fell back in love with my wife and kids.
A lot of times you get cloudy. The music industry is a mother, man, and it'll take your vision and blur it.
But I need my wife and kids in my life. So if you hear about a divorce, it'll be my wife divorcing me. It won't be me divorcing her."
On 21 May 2004, Snoop Dogg filed for divorce from his wife Shante Broadus, citing irreconcilable differences and seeking joint custody of their three children, Corde, Cordell, and Cori. But they have reconciled since.
