Snoop Dogg announced he has hired his wife, Shante Broadus, as his new manager.

"Shante has been guiding my career behind the scenes from day one," said Snoop, who is best known for his 1993 debut album, Doggystyle.

"She has always been my final gut check with all my decisions, and I wouldn't be where I am today without her. I am grateful to have her as my official manager, helping to build the Snoop Dogg empire together."

Snoop married Shante Taylor on June 12, 1997. They share three children -- sons Corde, 26, and Cordell, 24, and daughter Cori, 21.

Snoop and Shante's marriage has endured the test of time, despite rampant rumors of cheating and outside babies. The couple nearly divorced in 2004 after she learned of his outside child, a son named Julian Corrie Broadus, who was born in 1998.

Shante's appointment as her husband's new manager comes ahead of her first book, "Paid the Cost to be the Boss Lady."

Shante issued a statement about her new gig.

"The industry at large is seeing a major shift in more representation of Black women in key executive roles. I am excited to enter this official position, helping to further expand Snoop’s wide-ranging empire. I have been by Snoop's side for over two decades, so together with the rest of the team, our goal is to strengthen Snoop’s legacy as a brand with the loyalty and trust of our guidance that has made Snoop who he is today."

Mariah Carey departed Jay Z's Roc Nation management because she was looking to downsize to a smaller boutique management firm, TMZ reports.

According to earlier reports, Mariah left Roc Nation after an "explosive" argument with Jay Z during a meeting about her future with the company.

However, Mariah took to Instagram on Monday to deny reports that she had an explosive argument with her former boss.

Sources close to the situation tell TMZ that Mariah prefers to work with a smaller team that can devote more time to her. Unfortunately, Jay's powerhouse agency has too many cooks in the kitchen.

At Roc Nation, artists like Mariah could have 20 or more people working on marketing, social media, music, merchandise, etc. -- which created an impersonal environment and she simply wanted a more intimate team.

TMZ's sources say Mariah and Jay Z actually decided a couple months ago to part ways amicably after working together since 2017.

Mariah reportedly signed with Range Media Partners, which also signed her manager Melissa Ruderman. Ruderman left Roc in early 2021 to become a partner in the music division at Range, and she will be working closely with Mariah.

The report prompted speculation that Ruderman lured Mariah away from Roc Nation to join her at Range.

Some of Range's other clients include big name actors Bradley Cooper, Jonny Depp, Michael Fassbender, Tom Hardy and Keira Knightley.

Mariah will be Range's first bold name music artist.
