Rapper Snoop Dogg’s daughter Cori Broadus received a surprise marriage proposal from boyfriend Wayne Deuce over the weekend that left her in tears.
On Friday, Nov. 26, the couple and the 23-year-old’s parents shared the exciting news and clips from the engagement. On Instagram, Broadus posted a picture of herself smiling with her ring on display. She captioned the photo, “She’s a fiancé.” Equally thrilled that his longtime girlfriend accepted, the groom-to-be posted the same photo and wrote, “Can’t wait to share my last name w/ you. My beautiful fiancé.”
The lovebirds have been dating since August 2018. During the four-year courtship, fans have been able to follow their love story through a series of heartfelt posts to one another. The adoration between Broadus and the creative director/photographer can easily be seen in their various pictures. Their budding relationship has also been endorsed by Broadus’ mom, brothers, and superstar father in the comments. Back in October when the 23-year-old wished Wayne Deuce a happy birthday, her dad referred to him as “son-in-law” and her mom Shante called him a “bonus son”.
When the news of the engagement broke, Shante (aka the Boss Lady CEO) shared the emotional moment on social media in a short video. In the clip, there were balloons and large block letters that read, “Will You Marry Me, Cori?”
The clip showed the pair dressed in matching plush pink outfits in a warm embrace after Broadus said ‘yes’. Surrounded by loved ones, the aspiring singer and her bae soaked up the moment.
Under her Oct. 11 birthday shoutout to Deuce, Snoop Dogg and his wife referred to him as “bonus son” and “son in law”. It’s unfortunate, however, the couple hasn’t been getting the same love by everyone.
Back in June, Deuce shared a sweet birthday message to his “beautiful princess”. He wrote, “Happy birthday to my beautiful princess @princessbroadus. I love you sooo much you are my world!!!! I don’t think y’all understand my love for this girl!! I love waking up to you everyday, and you being my best friend, you being my dog baby mama, my business partner, and my soul mate and I wouldn’t change nothing about it I love you baby girl we going up tonight SHOT UPP!! happy birthday.”
Consequently, a flood of hate-filled Broadus’ comments ensued. Several trolls claimed Deuce was using Broadus for clout and only dating her because of who her dad is. Ultimately, her dark skin tone, full-figured shape, and overall appearance were disparaged.
This is especially troublesome considering the Choc Factory founder had admittedly dealt with mental health issues that nearly lead to suicide more than a year ago. Broadus also suffers from lupus.
Hurt by the comments, Broadus fired back, “Ya’ll love saying a n***a must like me cause my daddy Snoop Dogg, like why can’t he just love me for me[?]. It’s deeper than just being his daughter. I’m my own person, I’m more than that. I hate that I feel like I gotta go on here and do all [of] this, but I been dealing with this s**t since high school…. it’s frustrating as f**k to have to question if that’s the case. I hate it here ya’ll f**king suck.”
Despite the constant judgement, the couple continue to move forward and show one another love. They are business partners and now soon-to-be husband and wife! Congratulations Cori and Wayne!
