The mother of rapper Snoop Dogg has died, the star has announced.
Beverly Tate’s death was confirmed by her son on his Instagram account on Sunday as he revealed the sad news to his 65.2 million followers.
The rapper posted two sweet tributes to Beverly, with the first being an image of the pair. He wrote alongside it: “Mama thank u for having me.”
In the second, which was a shot of his mum smiling, the California Gurls singer, 50, wrote: “Thank u god for giving me an angel for a mother TWMA.”
A cause of death is yet to be revealed.
The news was also confirmed by the musician’s father, Vernell who also asked for prayers and said the family needed them now more than ever.
Beverly was hospitalised earlier in the year, but the reasons weren’t disclosed at the time. Snoop asked for good vibes from his fans at the time and updated them in July to say she was “still fighting” and had opened her eyes.
He wrote at the time: “Happy Sunday me and my brothers went to [see] mama today and she opened up her eyes to [see] us and let us know she still fighting.
“God is good … thanks for all the prayers one day at a time.”
He didn’t reveal any further details however.
Snoop has often attributed his mother to raising him to have good qualities and confessed that it was Beverly who forced him to apologise to Gayle King after he made controversial comments towards the presenter.

“Stay strong neph. Moms is now watching over you Forshizzle.”
He also shared his own post to Beverly on his own Instagram page asking his fans to send love and prayers to the whole family.
