Snoop Dogg’s daughter, 24-year-old Cori Broadus, has suffered a ‘severe’ stroke.

Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr., better known as Snoop Dogg, is one of the most famous rappers of all time, having sold a whopping 23 million albums in the United States and 35 million albums worldwide.

You’ll know his huge hits like ‘Gin and Juice’ and ‘Drop It Like It’s Hot’.

Snoop is also a prolific family man, with four children: Cordell Broadus, Julian Corrie Broadus, Cori Broadus, and Corde Broadus.

He has five grandchildren: Chateau Broadus, Cordoba Journey Broadus, Kai Love, Elleven Love, and Skylar.

But today, tragedy has struck Snoop’s family, as his second youngest child, Cori, has disclosed that she’s suffered a ‘severe stroke’.

Cori shared the horrifying news with her fans on Instagram.

She took to her stories today and wrote: “I had a severe stroke this am. I started breaking down crying when they told me.”

She added: “I’m only 24, what did I do in my past to deserve all of this?”

Cori has had health struggles in her past, having been diagnosed with lupus at the age of six.

The NHS confirms that ‘lupus (systemic lupus erythematosus) is a long-term condition that causes joint pain, skin rashes and tiredness. There’s no cure, but symptoms can improve if treatment starts early’.

Last year, Cori spoke to People about her health issues, saying: “I’ve been good, better than I’ve ever been.”

She revealed she had quite conventional medication, saying she’s ‘just doing everything natural, all types of herbs, sea moss, teas’.

Cori drew attention to other methods she’s using to control her chronic illness, saying she’s started working out and was drinking lots of water. The change was enormous, so she claimed she was taking time for her body to adjust.

“I’ve had medication since I was six 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.”

She went on to say that her body was responding well, and her lupus-related aches and pains were minimised. Cori had particularly noticed improvements in her joints, including her knees, feet, hands, and back.

She’s learning as she goes and is willing to incorporate more health measures into her life as she learns to live with lupus.

Cori further explained that any health journey takes time, and she’s taking everything daily, and not expecting miracles to happen overnight.

“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,” she concluded.

“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.”

It’s not yet known if Cori’s lupus is linked to her having a stroke so young.
