Snoop's Wife Neither Dead, Nor in a Basement

Not only is Snoop Dogg's wife alive and well -- but she's pretty pissed off over the "tip" posted on a California Highway Patrol website which said her dead body was in Snoop's basement.

TMZ obtained the following statement from Snoop Dogg's management: "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."
