Beverly, who had two other sons with Vernell, was hospitalized in July for an undisclosed illness and Snoop in May asked his fans and followers on social media to pray for her.

”I’m being tested right now, ya’ll. Make sure ya’ll pray for me and my family,’ Snoop posted earlier this year amid his mother’s health troubles.

Vernell left the family only three months after Snoop’s birth and he was named after his stepfather, Calvin Cordozar Broadus Sr.

The couple divorced in 1975 and she raised her family in a church environment in Long Beach, California.
