Snoop Dogg is mourning the loss of his beloved mother, Beverly Broadus Green. On Sunday (Oct. 24), Snoop shared with his followers via Instagram that his mom has transitioned. First, he posted a black and white photo of himself on IG with a caption that reads, “Walk by faith not by sight. Smile Snoopy that’s what U would say when it was time to take a picture TWMA.” He later shared two separate photos of his mom thanking her for having him, and publicly thanking God for giving him “an angel for a mother.”
During Mother’s Day weekend, Snoop didn’t reveal what was wrong with his mom but he did ask for support from his 65 million plus followers on Instagram. “I need all my prayer warriors for momma right now please and thank you.”
Mrs. Green was a proud ordained evangelist and the author of two books, “Real Love,” and “Real Love II: The Story of an Extraordinary Woman.” The latter, according to its Amazon description, is an autobiography that details her journey from her roots in the Deep South to the bright lights of Hollywood.
Green was born on April 27, 1951 in McComb, Mississippi, but she grew up in Long Beach, California. She has four sons, including Snoop. In a video interview shown at her 70th birthday soirée this year, Green talked about her health problems and thanked God for keeping her alive. “I am celebrating my 70th birthday and it’s been a joy coming to this,” she said. “Even though there were times when I thought I wouldn’t make it. I’ve been a sick woman in the hospital for six weeks at a time, and didn’t know, but the God that I serve, he told me it wasn’t time and he let me live on just a little bit longer. And I’m so happy. I’m so blessed.”
