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."

Rapper Snoop Dogg is mourning the loss of his 10-day-old grandson, Kai Love. Kai is the third child of Snoop Dogg's 25-year-old son, Corde Broadus, who revealed his newborn died on Wednesday, Sept. 25.

Corde posted a video online of his daughter kissing Kai, who never left the neonatal intensive care unit at the hospital where he was born on Sept. 15.

The grieving dad also shared the sad news on his Instagram account, writing: "Kai Love 9/15/19 – 9/25/19 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."

The baby's cause of death was not announced.

Snoop's wife, Shante, dedicated a heartfelt song to her late grandson on Thursday and posted video of herself tearfully singing along to The Dells' hit "The Love We Had Stays On My Mind". Snoop has yet to address the tragedy.
