Kanye West

The plastic surgeon who operated on Kanye West’s mother a day before her death has responded to the rapper’s plans to use his face as album cover art.

West posted screenshots of Jan Adams’ mugshot photo on Twitter.com on Saturday, showing a text conversation he had with a friend named “Wes”.

In the text exchange, West asked his pal for title ideas for the album cover featuring Adams.

“I want to forgive and stop hating,” he continued, before Wes replied: “LOVE EVERYONE”.

“I like that,” Kanye responded. His forthcoming album is due out on June 1st.

Adams performed liposuction, tummy-tuck and breast-reduction surgery on Donda West in Los Angeles in November 2007. She passed away at the age of 58 the next day.

A coroner’s report determined the cause of death was coronary artery disease and other post-surgery complications.

Kanye blamed Adams for his mother’s death – before ultimately blaming himself. But Adams blamed Kanye’s cousin, a nurse, who was responsible for Donda’s post-op care.

Following the hip-hop star’s announcement of his album cover plans, Adams spoke to editors at The Blast website via text message, cryptically writing that he believed West’s move was a “Macguffen (sic)”.

A MacGuffin is a term popularized by the director Alfred Hitchcock, that refers to a character who is believed to be hugely important but is really only included to further the plot.

Adams, who lost 2 malpractice lawsuits prior to Donda West’s surgery, surrendered his California medical license in 2009 after a string of DUI arrests. His license was reinstated in 2013, but it was revoked again in 2014 after he failed to comply with a court order to attend rehab.

Adams, 64, can no longer practice medicine in California.

    Glad he can’t practice medicine and I hope he can’t sell his overpriced skin care line that didn’t work.

  • bemetoo

    yea he was guilty …

  • Scromes1212

    That’s what’s up Sandra. I’m glad you showed that this dude had way more issues with his practice than just the situation with Ye’s mom smh this dude has issues

  • Dahl

    Not to be insensitive, but did Ms. West do her research on this doctor before surgery? Many times people don’t do their due diligence, which has led to (obvious) disastrous ends…

  • HalleMerry

    They look related.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I think she was impressed because he was a TV doctor. But you’re right, she should’ve checked his background.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Sick of the lies.. Kanya had his mother killed.. . His playing victim bs is bullshyt … Guilt is eating him alive and has since her death … That’s why he doesn’t act the same… so for folks that say his mothers death is what broke him… Man it was black magic murder that broke him… . Hidden secret he wasn’t shyt before she died… Again fugg this soft Ninja … He gets what he deserves … No friends… Only demons that will surround him for eternity …. More to come. . ?

  • Scromes1212

    If you don’t get yo ass on wit that black magic foolishness lol you conspiracy negros kill me smh stay off YouTube lol

  • i troll it like i see it

    Was she in good medical condition prior to surgery? I had breast augmentation at 26, was healthy, 5’7, 132 pounds, and they still had concerns about doing the procedure because I had low iron of all things. They put me on iron supplements and postponed until my numbers were good. But I’ve always had issues with iron, I’ve had to have transfusions as well. Maybe Donda wasn’t healthy enough for surgery?

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Dr. Adams charges in this were cleared because Donda West refused an after care treatment facility because her nephew was a fake nurse and she wanted to be cared for at home…she never mentioned her heart issues to the doctor or the office…Her “nurse” left her alone to go to a baby shower when he should have been by her side 24/7 during the first week (she should have hired two private nurses)…oh and she popped 20 vicodin in 20 hours after surgery…Kanye is trolling this man and he has a right to sue him if Kanye puts his face on the cover…Why wasn’t Kanye there when Queen Donda was getting her nip/tuck???

  • Trey

    Kanye cooning again

  • Scromes1212

    Breast augmentation is breast implants, right?

  • FukkFolks2018

    I am so sick of this fool. Like enough of him, his music, his antics, his politics, the doctor who killed his mama, Ms. Donda’s death circumstances, and all of it.

    Jesus.

  • iWasteTime

    I’ve put Kanye on my Sick & Shut in list.
    No comment from me.

    Hey Sandra …

  • i troll it like i see it

    Yes, also known as a boob job.

  • Scromes1212

    Wow. Do you still have them? (If you don’t mind me asking)

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Damn she did everything wrong. She really wanted to die.

    I don’t understand why she didn’t want to stay overnight.

    I know she worked at a university and they usually have reasonable health insurance premiums.

  • i troll it like i see it

    Yes but it’s time for renewal.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    *dead*

  • JV

    I feel like if he actually went through with that album cover it might qualify as defamation, i.e. suggesting he was responsible for her death. Just speculative, but I can see something like that at least being tried in court — which means, if true, Kanye’s giving him opportunity to make money for nothing.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    So she lied by omission about a pre-existing health condition and she picked a quack doctor?

  • Scromes1212

    ? What does that mean? They are sagging or something is wrong with them? Did you have any other surgeries. ( if your ok with sharing)

  • hi-liter

    Lying is what hurt her. You cant be lying to these doctors about your lifestyle or any other surgeries or sickness, this is why they ask these questions.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    all this shyt is a lie … All of it …

  • i troll it like i see it

    So I already had breast tissue, and on top of that I gained weight since surgery so yes they started to sag like big boobs normally do, and I need to get them redone. It seems like everyone I know whose work still looks good didn’t have a lot of breast tissue prior, (totally flat chested) and they have maintained their weight well. But the doctor told me that 10-15 years people you should replace them anyway, but I’ve heard conflicting opinions on that. I think I’m going to get a lift as well. It’s going to cost a fcking fortune. Probably should not have done it to begin with, I already had a C cup, I don’t know why it wasn’t good enough.

  • hi-liter

    I wonder was she attempting to save money by being cared for by a family member at home. But she had plastic surgery, not open heart surgery so you would think she would have been ok, but it was those preexisting conditions that got her.

  • i troll it like i see it

    That’s especially unfortunate if she was trying to be cheap and save money, you don’t risk proper health care for money. Especially with a millionaire son!

  • RICHIE_RICH

    She wasn’t , 3 other doctors turn her down cause of her health concerns

  • Scromes1212

    I’m sure the cost is crazy high. Sorry if I’m all in your business but Im just curious. So you had small breast but a lot of breast tissue? When you did it was your body proportioned or you got bigger breast to make your body more proportioned? I guess I’m asking what was your personal reason for doing it?

  • i troll it like i see it

    And no I haven’t had any other surgeries.

  • joel adams

    Should’ve gone to Kim Ks doctor. NEVER GO TO A BLACK DR

  • Sushi

    I thought, I was the only one that thought she was his sacrifice….

  • Scromes1212

    Kill yourself

  • i troll it like i see it

    Well I had decent sized breasts but was not satisfied with the volume after breast feeding/pumping milk, after I had my son a few years prior. Are you considering surgery? It’s advanced quite a bit since I had it done. Many more options.

  • joel adams

    Id seek out dr abrams if i were to do so .you can swallow a sack of cow shit tho

  • MsPam

    I just found out if your AC1 his high doctors will not perform surgery on patients.

  • Nikkiknows

    I think his mom would tell him this is a bad idea if she could…

  • Scromes1212

    Oh ok. Is your butt proportioned to your breast? Would you ever get your butt done?

  • MsPam

    Okay Dr.Bill Cosby! ?????

  • Scromes1212

    Just jokes, relax

  • i troll it like i see it

    “Sick and shut in” reminds me of Richard Simmons…he doesn’t leave the house no more….

  • Guest©

    My prayers go up for him as well.

  • i troll it like i see it

    Those three doctors were smart and not money hungry! They put their practice first!

  • i troll it like i see it

    Lol, I would NEVER get my butt done! Yes it’s a good shape as it is.? I don’t look like Wendy Williams, promise.

  • hi-liter

    Especially with a millionaire son!
    ______________________________
    My Point exactly!

  • Kemi

    He was a negligent doctor. He could’ve requested her medical record from her PCP, if he wanted. Especially when she was about to undergo major surgeries. She was not forthcoming as well in sharing her medical condition. No one precisely to be blamed but her.

  • hi-liter

    Is this legal? Can he really do this?

  • JV

    I’m skeptical.

  • hi-liter

    Right, like how you gone put someone’s whole picture on an album cover if they didn’t give you permission? Seems like it’s the same as getting people’s pics off of FB, IG and other social media outlets without permission.

  • Scromes1212

    When you got the breast implants you had a man? He encouraged you to do it? Or it was all you? How was the reaction different from men, before and after?

  • http://www.NeCola.Mayvenn.com Chile_Pleeze

    nah fam.. I’m right there with you

  • Scromes1212

    If you put a picture on FB or IG they can do whatever they want with them. It’s part of there terms and agreement. It’s part of why there in trouble now.

  • Scromes1212

    Chile pleeze smh (Ocho cinco voice)

  • Virgie

    Autopsy on Reel TV covered this case. Donda refused post op care and left AMA to recover at home because she wanted to keep her surgery private. Her “nurse” left her the next morning for the baby shower and turned off his phone so he missed all calls for help.

  • JV

    “They” being Facebook or Instagram — not Kanye. I think his picture would constitute implying his guilt, which is where the real problem starts imo.

  • TawnyDelux

    His neglegent ass. Why didn’t he request health records.

  • Scromes1212

    Yes

  • Virgie

    After the other doctors refused to treat her because of pre existing conditions. She lied to Dr. Adams and didn’t tell him her complete med history

  • Blue

    I ‘memba him from his his reality show.

  • Blue

    Yep.I saw it too.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Wow that’s some deep ish!!!

  • i troll it like i see it

    Yes I was seeing someone, he had no issue. But I never had complaints before or after from men. I did this based off my own insecurity with my boobs at the time after a pregnancy. Thinking back, the old girls weren’t so bad. ?

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Even if she lied, it’s his job to question her medical history, call her primary physician, request medical records, and look at her medications, vital signs, labs and other tests to determine her entire health picture. Her blood pressure alone was likely high if she had coronary artery disease. Any doctor who doesn’t check those tests or ask for copies of prior tests before surgery is negligent.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    Exactly. Surgeons don’t operate on someone without looking at everything, including previous health records, vital signs, lab tests and diagnostic tests.

    Edit: You can’t rely on the patient to provide her entire history. You look at her medications, and if she has cardiac meds, you request lab tests and diagnostic tests to make sure she is stable for surgery.

  • Oh Well

    I live in Hollywood. Its not a conspiracy. Some of yall nikkas aint gone wake up til Jesus open the sky and say Boo!

  • teather

    Well his mugshot is public info. If his arrest was warranted, then yes. Crazy, huh?

  • shelly

    She went to him because no reputable doctor would perform the surgery. We is Kanye going to understand this was 95%!his mother fault

  • hi-liter

    Yes, I agree with this.

  • hi-liter

    Shiiiidd the fake “nurse” should be the one Kanye needs to blame, like why would that person turn their phone off if they knew they were caring for someone who just had major surgery….

  • Cricket404

    He should name the album Angel of Death after Nazi Dr. Mengele. Mengele would search the Nazi prison camps for twins, parade them around and coddle over them by day and dissect them at night.

  • Applebootay

    Dis is jus too murch…..for me….I personally couldn’t do it…but if it helps him heal….I dunno

  • Applebootay

    Damn Scromes……LOL

  • Applebootay

    I lie all the time….whenever a doc ask me
    “do you smoke?”….
    I say “no”….
    one time I got up the nerve to say “not cigarettes” and I got a weird blank stare….so its back to “no” for me….

  • Applebootay

    Wow…”she really wanted to die?”…that’s some cold hearted shat……and health insurance plans don’t cover cosmetic surgery….she didn’t want to die….its the saddest thing ever…RIP Donda

  • Applebootay

    But aren’t those the same basic tests he would or should have performed before surgery? Did he not even check her damn blood pressure? or did he just ignore it?

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I didn’t mean it like that, but she was very careless with her life.
    There’s never a good reason to lie about your health just to get a cosmetic procedure especially after several doctors refuse to perform it due to medical reasons.

  • Applebootay

    This has got to be the most craziest insane f’ed up conspiracy theory I’ve heard …..you say all that but not why? Why would he want his mother dead? What in the Entire….F!??

  • Applebootay

    It ain’t “deep” its fing crazy!!

  • Applebootay

    so you cray cray too….sacrifice FOR WHAT?

  • Applebootay

    Yeah….like that’s some juju shat …..Ye was born in ATL but raised right here in the CHI….

  • Applebootay

    You live in “Hollywood”….but it’s not an conspiracy yet he’s free….y’all woke kneegrows smoke too much LOUD….

  • Miss Thang

    this is plastic surgery. no health insurance is going to cover that.

  • Miss Thang

    “Especially with a millionaire son!” back in those days, he was probably still in debt.

  • Vonn

    So his cover art should be split between his mom, the family “nurse”, and the doctor.

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    I don’t understand Adams response. If anything shouldn’t West ask PERMISSION to use his face? That’s an infringement of privacy w/o asking.

  • YaYa

    this right here

  • YaYa

    He’s wants to place the blame so he can heal and profit

  • EntrepreneurialSpirit

    Kim come get your husband please and be his pillar and not his doormat

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond
  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Maybe not elective surgeries but some do cover it.
    But she still was careless by not having someone stay with her and taking that much pain medication and being alone.

  • Scromes1212

    I see. Thanks for your honesty

  • ZZZ

    I don’t care what Kanye calls this album, I’m not buying it, exploiting his mother’s death in this fashion to sell his album. If he wants to forgive and stop hating, why not contact the doctor in person to talk about forgiveness. This is not about forgiveness and stopping the hate. This is about selling his album.

  • RealATLPeach36

    LORD you have me laughing ….

  • Reina1718

    Kanye jus starting $hit for attention just like his wife & family. I wanna know when Khloe going to show her baby! Prolly looking like the surrogate rite now…so many ppl pregnant same time as her & she the only one who already gave birth & showed no baby lol

  • Reina1718

    Well she requested a family member take care of her at home, she didnt want to be in the hospital

  • Reina1718

    Yes bz partying while she home dying

  • Solstice

    Yes. At pre op they check your diabetes and pulse/blood pressure. My pulse was too low and I had to have an ekg And chest X-ray before my doc and the hospital would sign off on the surgery. Mind you this was roughly 3 days before the procedure. They did sign off and I got the go ahead the day before but trust they checked my pulse AND A1C before I was taken to the op room. And I just had a tubal and ablation ?????

  • Applebootay

    Yeah and that’s the saddest part of all….senseless

  • Kemi

    And she paid for that decision with her life over vanity!!

  • Dollface

    Kanye needs to put down the box of bonbon’s and get off his fat ass acting like he one of the Kardashians hoing himself out for social media attention. If you can make good music, make it. No need for all the charades and subliminal messages, nobody got time for that chit.

  • Reina1718

    Sure did, i dont know how he ok with kim having so many

  • BingBangBoom

    Sounds like he needs to let his wife ago. She isn’t helping this man one bit. This is so sad.

  • Sushi

    For fame and fortune. there is always a sacrifice at the end of the day. Most of your Famous individuals have to make one. Again I am not speaking of the ones that go into the game and allow their gift to make room for them, that is something different. But they are all approched………

  • Miss Thang

    He is Kanye Kardashian.

  • Yui

    Exactly. Remember that video game shiz? He is so obvious.

  • Applebootay

    approached to have their moms murdered? like imma need you to break it all the way down for me….

  • Kemi

    They’re both 2 self absorbed ppl. He prolly don’t care

  • Sushi

    When you accept the GIFT of FAME OR FORTUNE, they are not going to tell you Who or what the sacrafice will be, normally it is blood , could be sexual, could be anything, but once you sign your name on the contract you are bound to the terms…. Do me a favor and ask yourself why did Dave Chappelle leave Hollywood like he did, and he was offered MILLIONS…..

  • Applebootay

    Ohhhhhhhh…….so lumanati shat?

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOL!!!! I guess I can truthfully answer no because I only eat brownies…

  • Quitedeliteful

    They look like they can be related…

  • Quitedeliteful

    If Kanye uses this man’s pic without his permission does he have to compensate him?

  • LaksFan

    Good for him, but I’m not buying his album.

  • Marlika

    Dr. Adams should NEVER EVER EVER EVER EVER be allowed to practice medicine again. However Ms. West is just as responsible for her own death. So was told by two doctors prior to this idiot that it wasn’t safe for her to have the surgery due to her health , but she gonna go head and get it done.

  • Applebootay

    RIGHT….if you wanna know what I smoke then change the question….”What do you smoke, if any?”

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    And it’s true very

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    She was and has sacrificed more… Ya see with them one is never enough … There has been more … The guilt will eat these people alive …. This is lifetimes after lifetimes … Judgement is here for them… Hence why they are mentally unstable now and never will be stable … Their choice … A conscious choice made for wealthmoney and power ..

  • Sushi

    Yes, all of them throw up the HORNES

  • Cali

    I don’t think so because he is/WAS a public figure. but I’m wondering if defamation could still be claimed because Koonye is acting as if this man is the sole reason, when we know it was 1.) Donda herself and 2. ) the Fake Nurse relative who left the night of the surgery, instead of staying, who ultimately caused the tragedy. He would need to add those two faces to the album cover to be fair.

  • Cali

    Koonye Kardashian

  • Lady_Elle

    They really do!

  • HalleMerry

    This is my profession. They never do.They are also not required by law to look up a patients medical info.This is why the patient must be honest with disclosing their past.Your Dr. does not have access to your records unless YOU release them.

  • XoXo

    I told my do doctor I use it for depression & she said she didn’t have a problem with it. When it is legalized, it’s documented & I can get a card. lol

  • i troll it like i see it

    NP!?

  • TheOwley

    Kanye needs a serious spiritual cleansing and exorcism. He needs to move on because this is an awful idea.

  • Pnthr

    She was stubborn and a know it all. You see where Kanye gets it from.
