Snoop Dogg and his family are mourning the death of his infant grandson.
Snoop’s son Corde Broadus shared the news on Instagram that his baby, Kai Love, died this week just 10 days after his birth. The post included a video of Broadus’ older child, 13-month-old daughter Elleven Love, giving her baby brother a kiss, as People reports:
“Kai Love 9/15/19 – 9/25/19 ///// My Son Kai brought so much love and positivity into this world,” Corde’s caption began, alongside a video of his 13-month-old daughter Elleven Love giving her baby brother a kiss in the hospital and a sign bearing his name and death date that also read, “Love + Light” with a smiley face.
“His energy will live on and these 10 days of love will always be special to us,” continued the grieving dad, 25. “Let’s all cherish life and those we love while we are here. Thank you
Snoop made no direct mention of the tragic loss, but in a poignant Instagram post Friday, he shared video imagery of the words:
“If you’re facing something you don’t understand:
Choose to trust God
Remember all He has done for you
His ways are higher than ours
He is always good.”
No information was shared as to the cause of the newborn’s demise, or any other details.
Condolences to Snoop Dogg and the entire Broadus family.
