Snoop Dogg's elderly uncle has lost his battle with colon cancer.
Doctors last week (ends21Mar14) predicted Uncle June Bug had just one day to live as a result of his deteriorating condition, and the sad news prompted Snoop and his cousin Daz Dillinger to take to their Twitter.com accounts and pay tribute to their beloved relative, suggesting he had already died.
Snoop wrote, "Lord help me find peace this morning !! I'm so sad my uncle junebug !! Is gone on to heavan (sic)!!"
He added, "Rip. Uncle. Bugg. U were everythang (sic) to me !! N like u said next time u c me thangs want (won't) b (sic) the same !! I'm so hurt!!!!!!"
However, Dillinger reveals their uncle managed to fight the disease for a week longer, and the 70 year old actually died on Sunday morning (30Mar14).
Confirming the loss on Twitter.com, he wrote, "June bugg jus (sic) passed @ 932 this morning".
