Her Hospital Battle
The late matriarch was reportedly hospitalized in May for an undisclosed illness, according to PageSix.
The “California Gurls” crooner had taken to Instagram that May to write, “I need all my prayer warriors for momma right now please and thank you,” alongside an adorable photo of his mom.
In July, Snoop Dogg shared a photo of him and his brothers visiting Tate at the hospital. The star told fans she opened her eyes, letting them know she was still fighting.
Tate later gave up the fight after her courageous battle with her illness. However, the cause of her passing is yet to be known.
Headlining The SuperBowl
Earlier in October, The Blast reported that Snoop Dogg will be headlining the 2022 Super Bowl Halftime Show and was already making plans to that effect.
