Her Twitter and Instagram handle, which is called @bosslady_ent, shows the closeness, bond, and affection that exists between her and her husband. She once confessed that the nickname ‘Boss Lady’, with which she wastes no time to show off, was given to her by her husband, who also never failed to use the word ‘Boo’ in his songs just to honor his wife Shante.
Their relationship, which has lasted for over two decades, has had its own share of marital storms and challenges. On May 21, 2004, after seven years of marriage, the couple witnessed the first public altercation in their marriage when Snoop filed for divorce on the grounds of insurmountable differences. However, the divorce never saw the light of day as Snoop had to throw away all divorce papers and reunite with the love of his life.
Talking to Queen Latifah on Youtube about her intended divorce and makeup, Snoop Dogg said, “You have to understand the turmoil and things I put her through on my path to success. I had no understanding of how I hurt her and how I betrayed myself until I became a man and realized that I just love this woman who loves me and had my children. I had to put my life in perspective and let my music and business take second place.” Snoop would later give the green light for an event to renew his marriage vows with Shante on January 12, 2008. There were a total of two hundred guests present for the big event.
On June 14, 2017, Snoop celebrated its 21st wedding anniversary with Shante.
