Cori has been battling Lupus since being diagnosed with the disease when she was 6.

Unfortunately, Cori’s stroke isn’t the first health struggle the young artist has faced in the public eye. The “Daddy’s Girl” artist has been transparent about having Lupus and the ups and downs the disease can bring.

Cori was diagnosed with Lupus when she was 6. Lupus, an autoimmune disease, affects multiple body organs, including the kidneys, skin, brain, heart, and lungs, making patients who have the disease more likely to have a stroke.

Cori has used her fame and social media notoriety to explain how Lupus affects her daily life. Cori shared on Instagram in September 2023 that she had a kidney biopsy and had to see a cardiologist due to high blood pressure, per The Shade Room. Cori has also said the disease causes hair loss, something she’s dealt with in the past.

“I was diagnosed at the age of six with lupus,” Cori told Essence in September 2022. “For those who don’t know, it’s an autoimmune disorder where basically your organs attack one another. So, my immune system is super weak. I experienced hair loss, so my mom came home one day with a bunch of scarves, and we were just playing in scarves and just trying them different ways.”

Due to her hair struggles, Cori, Snoop, and Shaunte created a scarf line called The Broadus Collection. The family have all modeled the scarves on the line’s Instagram account. In addition to using style to spread awareness of Lupus, Cori decided in 2023 to take charge of her health holistically.

Cori took steps to change her health before her stroke.

After taking “10 to 12 pills” most of her life to treat her Lupus, Cori told People she “wanted better for myself.”

She eventually quit all of her medications and began using various herbs sea moss, in addition to working out more and drinking water. At the time, the singer said she had felt better and was optimistic about her health journey.

“If I can do a whole 360 change and just get healthy all around, I think I would be so good,” Cori said. “But I tell people all the time, it’s a day-by-day process. Things are going to take time. Nothing is going to happen overnight.”

We are sending Cori lots of love and healing and are so glad Snoop’s daughter is doing OK!
