*In addition to releasing a statement affirming that his wife is not dead, Snoop Dogg posted a video on his Twitter page that showed Shante waking him up the morning after she was reported to have died.
Early Saturday (or late Friday on the Wessyde), Snoop's followers on Twitter received this message: "wifey and I brush these rumors off our shoulder! she filmed herself waking me up today so yall can kno she's alive and well." A link to the video was attached.
The death rumors apparently began with a "tip" posted on a California Highway Patrol Web site which said Shante's dead body was in Snoop's basement, reports TMZ.com.
Snoop Dogg's management responded quickly, stating: "Of course, the CHP rumors are absolutely not true, totally ridiculous, and most of all hurtful to Snoop Dogg and his family.
"Snoop, Shante and their family are all alive and well – we appreciate the fans concerns for their safety. Anything said or reported on regarding the death of Shante Broadus is totally false."
