The singer was diagnosed with lupus at age 6 and told PEOPLE previously that she had adopted a more holistic approach to her health
On Thursday, the 24-year-old — who is the daughter of the rapper, 49, and wife Shanté — posted a photo on her Instagram Story from the hospital following the health scare.
“I had a severe stroke this a.m. I started breaking down crying when they told me,” she wrote. “Like I’m only 24, what did I do in my past to deserve all of this.”
Although Broadus didn’t provide any details on what led to her stroke or her recovery, the singer has had a difficult health journey for years after being diagnosed with lupus at age 6.
Lupus is an autoimmune disease in which the body's immune system mistakes healthy tissues as foreign invaders and attacks them rather than targeting the bad bacteria and viruses. It causes inflammation that can affect the joints, skin, kidneys, blood cells, brain, heart, and lungs. There is currently no cure for the disease.
Because lupus affects multiple organs in the body, it can increase the risk for a stroke.
In September 2023, Broadus spoke to PEOPLE about her lupus battle and how her health has been since making some lifestyle changes.
“I've been good, better than I've ever been,” she said, revealing that she went “all natural” and recently took a more holistic approach to her health after a tough journey that included a 2021 suicide attempt.
“I stopped taking all of my medication like five months ago,” Broadus shared. “I'm just doing everything natural, all types of herbs, sea moss, teas. I started working out, drinking lots of water. So now I think my body's like, OK, this is the new program and she's getting used to it.”
At the time, Broadus admitted that she made the transition because she’s been taking medications her entire life that would make her “feel like I was going insane.”
“I've had medication since I was 6 years old, depending on these drugs all my life. So I wanted better for myself,” she said. “I wanted to change because it just became a lot. I'm only 24 years old, taking 10 to 12 pills every single day. So I kind of just went cold Turkey.”

Broadus told PEOPLE that she felt the lifestyle changes and hard work were paying off.
“My body is not achy,” she explains. “When you have lupus, that's one of the number one things. You have achy joints, you have arthritis. And now I'm like, damn, I'm not complaining about my knees, my feet, my hands, my back.”
Despite the progress, Broadus said she knows there’s still more lifestyle changes to make that could benefit her health.
“It's continuously a learning process because there's so much more I could be doing,” she explained, noting that she still struggles with “eating terribly” and “not getting the proper rest.”
“If I can do a whole 360 change and just get healthy all around, I think I would be so good,” she 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.”
