Cori Broadus, the daughter of rapper Snoop Dogg, has said she broke down in tears when doctors told her she had suffered a “severe stroke” aged 24.
Broadus shared her news with a picture of herself lying in a hospital bed on an Instagram story on Thursday, to her 657,000 followers.
She commented: “I had a severe stroke this AM. I started breaking down crying when they told me.
“I’m only 24. What did I do in my past to deserve all of this?”
Doctors sometimes refer to stroke as a heart attack for the brain.
It occurs when the blood supply to the brain is stopped.
Replying to friends who sent her well wishes on Instagram, Broadus posted: “I love you, I love you.”
Broadus’s father is rap star Snoop Dogg.
Musician and entrepreneur Snoop Dogg, whose real name is Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr, also has two sons, Corde and Cordell, with his wife Shante.
The rapper shot to fame following the release of his 1993 hit debut album, Doggystyle – which was produced by Dr Dre.
His daughter Cori is a singer in her own right who performs under the name CHOC. She has provided guest vocals to some of her father’s tracks and last year released the single 4am.
