Snoop Dogg's Estranged Son Reveals Hardship Of Not Having a Relationship With His Father [PHOTOS]
Being a sub-par father isn’t cute— hear that, Omarion? —and it’s somehow even less cute when you are a celeb who sort-of builds your brand around being all about family. 

Snoop Dogg’s estranged son Julian Broadus recently spoke to Fameolous about his connection with his famous father. Or lack thereof, we guess.

The rapper and music mogul seems to have found out about the existence of Julian in 2008, which is pretty incredible when you consider how quickly a rising net worth can lure relatives out of the woodwork (and what cringe-worthy actions it can inspire them to do, à la Kanye’s sex-tape-extortionist cousin).

The stickiness of Julian’s conception may have something to do with Snoop’s alleged dodgy-ness. He apparently knocked up his former high school sweetheart Laurie Holmond after he had already married his wife Shante Broadus. Classy.
“When I told Calvin I was pregnant, he said, ‘I don’t know how I’m going to tell Shante,” Holmond told Star. “But when Julian was born, Calvin was right there, and he took responsibility like a man.”

Holmond claimed she took the rapper to court, established paternity and he agreed to take care of his son.

But, for what it’s worth, he did seem to step up to the fatherhood plate—well, at the very, very beginning at least. 

Nowadays though, Julian claims that Snoop is completely MIA when it comes to being a dad and that Snoop’s unwillingness to associate with him is hurtful and harmful to his well-being.

He also says that it is difficult to become a man without his father’s guidance and that “being [Snoop’s] son is a huge part of [his] life that I’ll never be able to run away from”. Awwwww. Can you hand us the tissues, please?

It is entirely possible that this is a merely an attention-seeking stunt and that there is more to the story here, but we are going to strive to not be cynical for once…

Go kick it with your son, Snoop. He clearly wants to establish a relationship with you, based off of some of his Instagram posts. We know you are more than capable of dreaming up something relaxing and kushy…err, excuse us, cushy…for the two of you to do together.

Currently cozy in a blanket & watching this super bowl ! Issa Good Sunday !

#SnoopDogg and wife Shante have had 3 kids during their marriage (pictured). Snoop has been open about being a serial cheater during their marriage and even filed for divorce from Shante in 2004 because even though he was open about his cheating (even being involved in sex clubs) and Shante thinking and telling Snoop that she could deal with it, the straw that broke the camel's back, was allegedly in 2004 when Shante and Snoop found out about Julian - a 5yo son that Snoop fathered with another woman. Shante lost it and this is what caused Snoop to file for divorce. The couple came to a mutual agreement to continue their marriage as long as Snoop only paid child support for Julian but did not initiate or maintain a personal relationship with him. Snoop's cheating has never stopped and Shante knows this. They live separately and are only together when it's publicly necessary. Julian Broadus (yes,his mom gave him Snoop's last name because she never intended for him to not have a relationship with his dad) is 17yo now and has been open on social media about always wanting a relationship with his dad. #julianbroadus #celebritysecrets #celebritydrama #celebritygossip #celebrities #tmz #bloghive💄 #bloghive
