Cori Broadus, the daughter of rapper and actor Snoop Dogg, revealed Thursday she suffered a ‘severe stroke.’

“I had a severe stroke this a.m. I started breaking down crying when they told me,” she posted in an Instagram story.

According to NBC News, she shared a photo from what appeared to be a hospital bed.

“Like I’m only 24 what did I do in my past to deserve all this,” she said in another story.

NBC News reports:

It’s not clear what caused the stroke or what Broadus’ current condition is. She is the daughter of Snoop Dogg and his wife, Shante Broadus. Representatives for Snoop Dogg did not immediately respond to an NBC News request for comment.

Broadus was diagnosed with lupus — a chronic autoimmune disease that can damage the skin, joints, organs or other parts of the body —at the age of 6, she told People magazine in September.

She said she was feeling “better than I’ve ever been” after taking an all-natural, holistic approach to her health.

“I’ve had medication since I was 6 years old, depending on these drugs all my life. So I wanted better for myself,” she told the magazine. “I wanted to change because it just became a lot. I’m only 24 years old, taking 10 to 12 pills every single day. So I kind of just went cold turkey.”

“I want to be okay,” she added in that interview. “You’re not going to always be okay, and that’s okay because we’re human, but I want to be okay overall, mentally, physically. And we’re going to get there.”


From CNN:

She is the only daughter of Snoop Dogg and his wife, Shante Broadus, and the chief executive officer of the beauty company Choc Factory.

The younger Broadus has been outspoken about being diagnosed with lupus when she was six years old.

“I felt helpless,” Snoop told People magazine in 2010 about discovering his daughter’s illness. “No power, no friends.”

“No one could tell me what was wrong,” his wife said of their frustration before their daughter was diagnosed. “They drew tons of blood and said she has old-person cells. They gave her all kinds of [medication]. But she went downhill.”

Cori Broadus said she was talking a new, holistic approach regarding her illness in an interview with People last year.


“I stopped taking all of my medication like five months ago. I’m just doing everything natural, all types of herbs, sea moss, teas,” she said. “I started working out, drinking lots of water. So now I think my body’s like, okay, this is the new program and she’s getting used to it.”
