After over two months of asking his “prayer warriors” to pray for his mother, Beverly Tate, after she was hospitalized, Snoop Dogg is giving his followers a new update.
On Sunday, July 25, Snoop Dogg shared a bit of good news on Instagram about his mother’s health, stating that she is still fighting. In the photo he shared, Snoop is bent over the bed with his hand above his mom’s head, with two other gentlemen standing in the room as well.
He wrote, “Happy Sunday me and my brothers went to c mama today and she opened up her eyes to c us and let us know she still fighting. God is good💕🙏🏾 thanks for all the prayers 1 day at a time.”
The “Baby Boy” actor did not indicate the cause behind his mother’s hospitalization, however, he did receive an abundance of love and support from his celebrity friends.
New York rapper Roxanne Shante wrote, “My prayers are with you and your family Everyday is a blessing and an opportunity to get better.” Shad Moss, aka Bow Wow, also left a few words for Snoop Dogg. He said, “❤️❤️❤️❤️ pull through momma snoop we love you!!! You all in my prayers unc. I love you man. ❤️❤️❤️.”
“Fast and Furious” actor and former R&B singer Tyrese Gibson also left a message for the 49-year-old. He said, “Prayers for mother: Prayers for you King and your whole family…. Momms is the true matriarch prayers over her keep fighting mother keep fighting…..”
Snoop Dogg and his mother have a close relationship. He told Jada Pinkett-Smith on an episode of “Red Table Talk” that his mother is the reason he apologized to CBS host Gayle King after going off on her following her controversial comments about Kobe Bryant’s sexual assault case after his and his daughter’s death last year.
But he’s been showing her love well before that. In 1999, he released a song called “I Love My Momma,” on which he listed out things that she has taught him. A part of what he says in the song is “She the queen in my life, and I’ma make sure she gon’ shine again / She taught me everything, but she didn’t charge a fee. She taught me everything, except how to see a G / For the nine months you carried, I hope you bury me / Instead of the other way around, and I put that on Dogg Pound.”
Tate is 70 years old. Snoop Dogg’s father, Vernell Vernardo, did not stick around at first when Snoop Dogg was born, which is why Snoop is named after his former stepfather Cordozar Calvin Broadus Sr. However, Snoop Dogg and Vernardo have since rekindled their relationship.
