Cori Broadus, the 24-year-old daughter of rapper Snoop Dogg and his wife, Shante Broadus, shared on social media early Thursday morning that she suffered a stroke. In an Instagram story, she expressed her shock and emotions, saying, “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 this.”
It is not clear what caused Cori’s stroke or what her current condition is. However, Cori, who was diagnosed with lupus (a chronic autoimmune disease) at the age of six, has had a health journey that has been marked by ups and downs. In 2021, she survived a suicide attempt, highlighting the mental toll of her condition.
Nevertheless, she found hope in September 2023 when she began taking a holistic approach to her health. She stopped taking medication and turned to natural remedies like herbs and sea moss, combined with a focus on fitness and hydration.
In a September interview with PEOPLE magazine, the media personality shared that she had been 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 explained. “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 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,” she continued, noting she made the transition after the longtime use of medications made her “feel like I was going insane.”
Despite the progress she has made, Cori acknowledged that there was still more to do to improve her health.
“It’s continuously a learning process because there’s so much more I could be doing,” she explained, confessing that she struggled with “eating terribly” and “not getting the proper rest.” Understanding that her health couldn’t do a “360 change”, Cori began to focus on the day-to-day progress instead of feeling overwhelmed.
“I have days where I’m sick, but I’m still blessed and able to do what I love to do and to tell my story,” Cori shared. “But then there’s days I’m like, ‘Wow, I wish I wasn’t sick. What would my life be if I was just a normal girl?’ It’s part of being human. You’re going to have bad days, you’re not going to always have good days.”
Cori has also been open about her kidney health, sharing updates with her followers. Last February, she shared the results of her kidney biopsy, which showed that her kidneys were at stage
