The plastic surgeon who operated on Kanye West’s mother was busted early today for driving under the influence according to California Highway patrol.
Jan Adams, 54, was stopped by California Highway Patrol officers at about 2:40 a.m. after motorists saw him driving a 2004 Jaguar XJ8 southbound in the northbound lanes of Interstate 680 near Gold Hill Road in the Benicia area, said CHP Officer Craig Kuehl.
CHP officers smelled alcohol on Adams’ breath and arrested him for suspicion of drunk driving and driving with a suspended license. Adams’ driver’s license was suspended after a previous drunk driving conviction.
In November, Adams operated on West’s mother, Donda West, 58, performing liposuction and breast implant surgery. He sent West home without adequate aftercare and she died a day later of respiratory and cardiac arrest.
The Los Angeles coroner concluded that West had heart disease and clogged coronary arteries which contributed to her death. The surgeon’s license to practice medicine expired Wednesday because he allegedly failed to pay child support, according to records with the California Medical Board.
Adams came to prominence when Oprah Winfrey featured him on her nationally syndicated talk show. (Source)

A man criticizes comedian Niecy Nash for joking about Angelina Jolie and Madonna going to Africa to adopt black kids.
He also takes a shot at BET for the overall ghetto atmosphere of the show. Well, he does have a point about the racist jokes and the horrible performances. We need to do better.
“These babies have done wonders for my credit score. To all the rappers and singers and ballers and shot callers: instead of making it rain, make a difference and get yourself some white kids.” – Niecy Nash on Bet Awards
Sen. Barack Obama covers the June ’08 issue of Rolling Stone magazine. Obama took the opportunity to once again denounce misogynistic rap lyrics while saying he respects rap as a form of artistic expression:
I am troubled sometimes by the misogyny and materialism of a lot of rap lyrics but I think the genius of the art form has shifted the culture and helped to desegregate music.
It would be nice if I could have my daughters listen to their music without me worrying that they were getting bad images of themselves.
Rolling Stone endorsed Obama for president back in March.
NBA Playboys Allen Iverson and Shaquille O’Neal partied at separate clubs last night in the A. Shaq put his Mack down at Uptown while Allen Iverson held down the VIP during Investment Club Night at Luckie Food Lounge.
When a media outlet asked Shaq to talk about the Kobe Bryant controversy, Shaq was happy to oblige, saying, “Hi Kobe, how you doin?”
Stellar performances by Rihanna, Al Green, Maxwell, Alicia Keys and Ne-Yo couldn’t draw viewers to the BET Awards on Tuesday night. This year’s awards show which honors the best in African-American music, sports and film, only drew 5.8 million viewers according to Nielsen ratings.
Tuesday night’s ratings was the smallest in the BET franchise’s eight-year run since 2004.
Meanwhile, there are rumors that Clifford Harris aka T.I. was not invited to attend the awards this year even though he’s in LA filming his MTV reality series. We can speculate as to the reason why. If you recall, T.I. was arrested the day of the BET Hip Hop awards last October in Atlanta.
There are also grumblings about the sentence handed down by the feds to Jacob Arabo aka Jacob The Jeweler, this week. Arabo was given a 30-month sentence in Club Fed for lying to federal investigators about his financial dealings with the BMF crime family. He is to begin serving his sentence on January 15, 2009 – the same month T.I. is required to start serving his 9 months for gun collecting.
The difference between the two sentences is that T.I. cooperated with the feds while Arabo lied his ass off to protect himself. A 5-time felon can have 50 guns in his arsenal, but it’s a totally different ball game when you mess around with Uncle Sam’s money.
They tried to pull the wool over our eyes but we were too smart for them. Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon‘s fake wedding is almost over according to a close friend:
“I give the marriage six months, tops,” said a source close to the singer. “I can’t see it lasting.”
The insider claims that the reason behind that gloom-and-doom prediction is Nick’s need to do everything for his diva bride. While Mariah likes being waited on hand and foot, that routine won’t work in the long run.
“Nick does whatever Mariah wants him to — he’s like her puppy,” the insider said. “It seems like Nick spends more time in the stores with Mariah’s credit card than he does with Mariah herself. Mariah’s assistants and friends call him ‘Whipped Nick’ behind his back. They have little respect for him because he won’t stand up for himself.”
