Snoop Dogg's California home was reportedly the scene of a near-fatal accident as a child was taken to a hospital after slipping under water.
While the child appears to be doing fine, the incident reportedly took place Saturday (July 4) night.
The child, a 3 year-old boy, was hospitalized as a precaution but appeared to be doing fine after the incident was reported shortly after 10 p.m. in a gated community. The child apparently briefly slipped under water in a spa, and someone became concerned and called for help, fire officials said. The boy was in his mother's arms, breathing and conscious, when firefighters arrived, authorities added. Fire officials said the rapper did not appear to be home. (Pasadena Star News)
Similarly, Lil Boosie's home was the scene of a child's death last year.
An unnamed man reportedly killed his daughter in an auto accident at Lil' Boosie's Louisiana home earlier this week. The fatal incident took place Tuesday (December 23) around 5 p.m. as the father backed out of the rapper's driveway. Local Pompey deputies claim the child's parents reportedly loaded up their vehicle with all five kids but then unknowingly hit their daughter who happened to still be outside. She passed away an hour later at a nearby hospital. (WAFB News)
In music-related news, Snoop has reportedly been working with Gucci Mane for his upcoming album, Malice in Wonderland.
"[Snoop] said he likes my stuff and his kids like my stuff," Gucci said in an interview last month. "I was supposed to be on his last album, Ego Trippin'. I did a song and it didn't make it...We just did three more [songs]...We did one for his album Malice in Wonderland. It's called 'Opposites.' Look forward to that. I did another song for his album called 'Party Animal,' and we're trying to get Fergie on there." (MTV)
Snoop recently made headlines after appearing in court for an alleged assault on a fan during a 2005 concert.
The rapper wasn't in court Friday (May 8) when the jury's verdict cleared him of civil assault and battery claims. The jury did find that Richard Monroe Jr. suffered serious injuries during the concert and awarded him $449,400 in damages to be paid by a record label, another performer and others involved in the concert. The damages awarded were substantially lower than the $22 million Monroe sought when he sued the rapper in 2006 and jurors found that Snoop doesn't personally owe Monroe anything. (Associated Press)
