On the 21st of May 2004, after a blissful seven years of marriage, the couple witnessed their first public marital disagreement when Snoop filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences. However, the divorce never saw the light of the day as Snoop had to throw away all the divorce papers and reunite with the love of his life.
Speaking to Queen Latifah on Youtube about their intended divorce and makeup, Snoop Dogg said, “You gotta understand the turmoil and the stuff that I put her through in my journey to becoming successful. I had no understanding of how I was hurting her and how I was betraying myself until I became a man and realized I need to love this woman who loves me and had my kids. I needed to put my life in perspective and let my music and my business become secondary.” Snoop would later go-ahead to host an event to renew his wedding vows with Shante on January 12, 2008.
