Cori Broadus, daughter of rapper Snoop Dogg and his wife, Shante, is recovering from a stroke. The 24-year-old suffered a heart incident last week. While Snoop Dogg and his wife Shante have not publicly commented on their daughter’s health, Cori has been updating fans and family members on Instagram.

Multiple sources have reported her temporary posts and updates on social media.

“God is working overtime you hear me! My kidneys were doing terrible…doctors came in this AM and said they are improving so much,” Cori wrote on her Instagram Stories on Jan. 21. Alongside her written health update, she posted a selfie from what appears to be a hospital bathroom, giving a thumbs-up.

Just one day prior, Cori took to her IG Stories with another update. According to People, she wrote, “Again I’m human and I go through s— like everybody else which is why I’m so open about my life because I know I feel alone,” she wrote. “But we are never alone, someone is always going through damn near the same. Still here hoping to be home soon.”

Cori’s battle with lupus, a common chronic disease in Black women

Cori first announced her stroke on social media on Thursday. She did not disclose any health conditions that may have led to the stroke, but she has been public about her battle with lupus. Snoop’s only daughter spoke to People about her condition and changes to her lifestyle. Since being diagnosed with lupus, she has been looking at herbs, healthy foods and holistic treatment.

Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease that can damage any part of the body, from skin and joints to organs. The Lupus Foundation of America says that lupus is three times more common in Black women than in Caucasian women, and as many as 1 in 250 Black women will develop lupus.

The same organization has published 2020 stats on possible connections between lupus and strokes.

Strokes disproportionately affect Black people

Data shows that strokes disproportionately affect Black people, but they usually happen at a much older age than Cori’s 24 years.

The rate at which Black people suffer strokes has been on the decline in recent years, but it still is the highest at nearly 60%, according to research from the American Heart Association.

We wish Cori a speedy recovery.

Help Stop Hate! Spread Love

Widely disseminated misinformation is extremely harmful and serves as a catalyst for hatred, violence and prejudice of every kind. This is counterproductive to the unification and strengthening of a nation.

Basketball star Kyrie Irving captured the media’s attention when he faced allegations of anti-Semitism due to a social media post containing a link to the film, “Hebrews to Negroes: Wake Up Black America.” Succumbing to external pressure, Irving removed the controversial post and offered a public apology. Nonetheless, upon further examination of the circumstances, it appears that Irving might have been criminally deprived of his rights, and could potentially possess a legal claim against his former employer for violating contractual terms.
