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.

Karrueche Tran wants a judge to freeze her ex-manager's assets in her bid to recover at least $1.4 million she claims he stole from her.

In her court filing, obtained by The Blast, Karrueche says she fears Jacob York is spending all the money she earned from bookings and club appearances.

Karrueche is asking for an injunction against her former manager and his company Electric Republic. She believes Jacob failed to pay her $1.4 million in revenue. The two are currently in the middle of a nasty lawsuit.

In the newly filed documents, Karrueche says Jacob has refused to open his books and give her an accounting of the money she earned. She says her ex-manager dragged out the case for weeks with fake promises of a settlement.

She recently learned Jacob has been having issues paying his own lawyer which concerns her. Karrueche believes Jacob's financial difficulties "indicates Defendants have likely squandered the monies fraudulently withheld from Plaintiff and will either be required to liquidate assets in order to satisfy debts or will be incentivized to secret away such monies to place them beyond the reach of their creditors.”

Karrueche is asking the court to grant an immediate injunction and freeze Jacob’s assets.

Karrueche is best known for dating singer Chris Brown from 2010 to 2015. She is currently engaged to former NFL star Victor Cruz since 2018.

Mariah Carey and Jermaine Dupri part ways

Songbird Mariah Carey seems to be blaming her manager and producer Jermaine Dupri for the poor performance of her current album.

On Tuesday I incorrectly stated that Chris Brown fired his longtime manager Tina Davis. In fact, Brown hired Bu Thiam to head his management team. Bu and Tina will share management duties. I regret the error.

If you noticed a kinder, more intellectual Chris Brown tweeting on social networking website Twitter.com, there's a good reason for that.

6 months after telling the media Chris Brown would not give interviews in 2012, Brown's longtime manager Tina Davis has been fired.
