Rapper Snoop Dogg Announces Death of His Mother Beverly Tate
The 50-year-old did not disclose the cause of his mother's death. Back in May, the rapper posted a photo of himself and his mother, asking followers to pray for her. She was hospitalised for unknown reasons. He later updated followers on her health by posting a picture from a hospital. He said that his mum was still fighting.
The musician has praised his mother over the course of his career. Most recently, he credited her for making him apologise to TV presenter Gayle King for the comments he made over her interview about the late NBA superstar Kobe Bryant, a close friend of Snoop Dogg.
While interviewing one of Bryant's friends King asked about the rape allegations made against the basketball player. After the interview was aired, Snoop Dogg harshly attacked the TV presenter, calling her crude names and even threatening her.
Her later issued an apology.
"I publicly tore you down by coming at you in a derogatory manner based off of emotions of me being angry at a question you asked. Overreacted", he said. "I should have handled it way different than that, I was raised way better than that", the artist said in a video posted on Instagram.
