Snoop Dogg’s grandson Kai has died only 10 days after he was born.

The 47-year-old rapper tragically lost his newborn grandson, Kai Love, on Wednesday, his son and Kai’s father, Corde Broadus, shared the sad news on social media on Thursday.

“His energy will live on and these 10 days of love will always be special to us.”

In a post which included an image of Kai’s name plaque at the hospital, as well as a video of his 13-month-old daughter Elleven Love giving her baby brother a kiss, Corde wrote: “Kai Love 9/15/19 – 9/25/19 ///// My Son Kai brought so much love and positivity into this world. His energy will live on and these 10 days of love will always be special to us. Let’s all cherish life and those we love while we are here. Thank you (sic)”

Corde, 25, had Kai with his partner Soraya, who is also the mother of Elleven. He is also father to a four-year-old son named Zion, whom he has with his ex-girlfriend Jessica Kyzer.

Snoop is yet to comment on Kai’s tragic passing, but previously said he prioritises his family – including Corde and his other children, 22-year-old Cordell, and 20-year-old Cori, whom he has with wife Shante Broadus, and 21-year-old Julian, whom he fathered with Laurie Holmond – over everything else.
