Snoop Dogg’s Daughter Cori Broadus Opens Up About Recent Kidney Biopsy

Cori Broadus, the daughter of rapper Snoop Dogg, first opened up about her ongoing health issues last year. She revealed her lupus diagnosis and high blood pressure problems, which the 23-year-old had been dealing with since she was six. As a result, Cori has suffered from hair loss, and recently received a kidney biopsy to examine abnormalities, Hollywood Unlocked reports.

On Monday (February 20th), Cori took to Instagram to update her followers on her biopsy results. She shared a detailed notes page where she recounted what she learned during a phone call with her rheumatologist. The young singer was reassured that her treatment was at a mild stage three, revealing that the disease was reversible. But, her doctors have still enacted an aggressive treatment plan to be safe. Luckily, Broadus' current stage implies that she won't have to undergo chemotherapy (a route that would have been necessary in stage four). Instead, she'll be put on Benlysta, an antibody that is used to treat Lupus.

Cori Shares Updates About Her Diagnosis

When Cori initially opened up about her lupus diagnosis, she briefly explained her experience with the autoimmune disease. “So my immune system is super weak. I [have] experienced hair loss, so my mom came home one day with a bunch of scarves, and we were playing in scarves and just trying them [in] different ways,” she wrote to her followers. Thankfully, her most recent biopsy surgery was conducted successfully, with just minor inflammation in the kidneys.

Although Cori has been battling this disease since her childhood, she hasn't let health issues get in the way of building her career. The young entrepreneur is the CEO of CHOC Factory, which specializes in lip products, body care, and loungewear. Following in the footsteps of her iconic father, Cori has also dabbled in music and often posts cover videos and make-up tutorials on her YouTube page.

Cori's Health Struggles Follow Her Recent Engagement

Aside from her health struggles, Broadus has also been keeping us up to date on her love life. The singer and her beau Wayne Duece began dating in 2018 and celebrated their engagement last November. At the time, Snoop Dogg even got in on the festivities and made it clear he approves of his future son-in-law.

Wayne, a creative director who often collaborates with his fiance's brand, posted a stylish photo of the duo on January 8th, captioning it with "the beginning of forever." While Cori may have had a rocky start to the year with her kidney biopsy, there's still a lot for her to look forward to in 2023.
