Snoop Dogg’s 24-year-old daughter, Cori Broadus, announced Thursday that she had been hospitalized after suffering a “severe stroke.”
In an Instagram Story post viewed by People.com, the iconic rapper’s daughter wrote, “I had a severe stroke this a.m. I started breaking down crying when they told me. Like I’m only 24, what did I do in my past to deserve all of this.” Broadus also shared photos from her stay in the hospital.
People.com reported that while Snoop Dog’s daughter did not explain what caused her stroke and did not provide any information regarding her recovery at the hospital, Broadus has struggled with her health for almost two decades, after being diagnosed at six years old with Lupus.
According to Mayo Clinic, Lupus is an autoimmune disease that occurs when a person’s body attacks its own organs and tissues. The disease can cause inflammation that impacts a person’s brain, heart, blood cells, joints, kidneys, lungs, and skin. Lupus can also increase a person’s risk for strokes.
In a September interview, Broadus told People.com that she had switched from her Lupus medication to an “all natural” treatment.
“I stopped taking all of my medication like five months ago,” Broadus said. “I’m just doing everything natural, all types of herbs, sea moss, teas. I started working out, drinking lots of water. So now I think my body’s like, OK, this is the new program and she’s getting used to it.”
The iconic rapper’s daughter previously told People.com when she was 21 years old that she had struggled with suicide and mental health challenges due to her ongoing battle against Lupus.
“Just because my dad is who he is doesn’t mean I don’t get sad, that doesn’t mean that I don’t want things or that I don’t feel a way. I don’t know how to explain it,” Broadus stated. “I’ve always been sad. I’ve always been depressed. I feel like I’ve been through a lot.”
At the time, she added, “I’ve been sick, I am sick. It’s a lot. Body hurting, you’re just in pain, and you’re so young you’re like, ‘What is happening to me? What is going on?'”
