Snoop Dogg’s Daughter’s Battle With Lupus.

WOW! Just when you think you have problems. In an exclusive interview with PEOPLE, Snoop Dogg is opening up about his daughter’s battle with Lupus.

It all began five years ago when they noticed a light spot on the face of Cori, then 6 years old. Weeks later, Snoop and wife Shanté Broadus noticed she was losing drastic amounts of weight and her hair was falling out.  Despite visiting countless doctors, no one was able to offer the rapper and his family a diagnosis for little Cori. “I felt helpless,” Snoop told PEOPLE while fighting back tears. “No power, no friends.”  His wife Shanté adds, “No one could tell me what was wrong. They drew tons of blood and said she has old-person cells. They gave her all kinds of [medication]. But she went downhill.”


Months later, after getting the heartbreaking diagnosis of lupus, Snoop Dogg and his family began their journey to understand the autoimmune disease, which ultimately brought his family closer together.  “She’s the toughest little thing I’ve ever met,” the rapper says of his daughter. “She’s on the honor roll, playing volleyball and softball, living life. She has all this joy. In the beginning lupus was winning. But now Cori is.”

Thank God!

  2. I think it’s wonderful that Snoop is being there for his family. Also I would like to say Keep your head up.

  3. I think it’s wonderful that Snoop is being there for his family. Also I would like to say Keep your head up. It takes a lot of courage to lose a friend(Nate Dog). I lost my father, brother, and grandmother. Life gets difficult sometimes, but we have to keep our heads straight. I would love to meet you and your family one day, and just share a lconversation with you guys.
