Kanye West Jan Adams

Kanye West has accepted an invitation to sit down with the surgeon who operated on his mother the day before she died in 2007. Kanye said he is excited to sit down with his late mother's surgeon to "start healing".

Donda West died in November, 2007 - a day after disgraced surgeon Jan Adams performed liposuction, tummy tuck and breast-reduction surgery on her at a Los Angeles clinic.

Kanye is currently working on the follow-up to his 2016 album The Life of Pablo, and during a Twitter spree on Saturday, he revealed plans to use Adams' mugshot image as the artwork for his forthcoming album, set for release on June 1st.

"I want to forgive and stop hating," Kanye text to a friend named Wes, believed to be his artist collaborator Wes Lang, who suggested the album title, LOVE EVERYONE.

In an open letter to Kanye, published via TheBlast.com, Adams resented Kanye's camp for persisting with "the charade" to blame him for Donda West's death.

He placed the blame on Kanye's cousin, Stephan Scoggins, a nurse who was responsible for Donda's post-op care.

"Perhaps you should put your cousin's picture on your next album," Adams wrote. "Don't put my picture out there and claim you are about love. Love deals with the truth."

Adams claimed he has "tolerated" inaccurate reports suggesting he is to blame for Donda's death out of respect for Kanye's mom, but added, "If you want to heal, first call out the people in your own camp who knew better and persisted with the charade in order to hide their own guilt."

Adams went on to ask Kanye to "cease and desist using my photo or any image of me to promote your album or any of your work", and urged him to be "intellectually honest" as he deals with the trauma from his past.

Adams then offered to meet with the rapper to begin the healing process - an offer that Kanye happily accepted.

"This is amazing," Kanye tells The Blast in response to the news. Addressing Adams directly, the musician added, "Thank you so much for this connection, brother. I can't wait to sit with you and start healing."

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His license was reinstated in 2013, but it was revoked again in 2014 after he failed to comply with a court order to attend rehab.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

    Almost all doctors have had malpractice lawsuits that still doesn't make him responsible for her death

  • Allihave2say

    It's been more than a decade. I wouldn't do it and damn sho wouldn't do it without an attorney present to guide my words.
    Taylor Swift used Kanye's mom's death to sell her album and now Kanye is using his own mom. You can't get better than that kind of love can you?

    Kanye thought people would chew up the doc and run to support him but no thank you. Kanye we see you.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    He needs this. I had an idea to start a program where the victim and/or their family got a chance to sit down to meet with the convicted, killer, murderer, person who stole all your millions, etc. I can't think of the exact word, but yeah, them.

    I really feel like a lot of us suffer through life and this conversation will not make us friends, but it will start a healing process I believe.

  • abby500

    If I were the doctor I would NOT meet with kanye.

  • jazmine

    And this our business because...? Interesting how it needs to be done a month before ya lil album drop

  • GrapeCrush

    He definitely shouldn’t go alone if he decides to meet with Kanye, lol

  • justlooking

    I agree, he probably feels like his mother was murdered. That's a lot of cutting on a person at her age. It was a poor decision on medical doctor and she knew that was too much. Sad then and now.

  • imright

    Kanye has completely disappointed me AGAIN !! ? he needs to leave this man (Dr Jan) alone. lets be real clear KANYE SACRIFICED HIS MOTHER. enough of the bullshxt

  • stav

    So glad you said it, because I was about to. He may not have known who the sacrifice would be, but he knew someone would be sacrificed. When you make a deal with Satan, expect to pay up...by any means.

  • Harley

    All publicity for his album! Why y'all feeding into this?? Uggh

  • Hmmm~?

    This. He had no idea it would be his mother and that's why his mental health is where it is now. Kanye is not an idiot. He knew what was going on, but he allowed himself to fall into it, and it cost him the one person closest to him. Demons like those will follow you to the grave.

  • 1BlueStar

    Who really cares abt any of this??

  • tintin

    Kanye will have a gun with one bullet forcing the man to play russian roulette. The doctor better stay clear

  • Layah Jhene

    Lol pretty much

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    Adams better be careful. Kanye is off his rocker and may pull a knife.

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    I agree with imright -- Kanye has a lot of guilt about what he did or did not do for his mother. He's often said he should have left her in Chicago; that when she came to Hollywood she went "hollywood."

  • mona q

    Ok! Especially when I have been reading how the cousin was her nurse against the doctors wishes. Doc wanted her at a recovery center but they insisted the cousin (an RN) take care of her. Then he left her with some other family or friend who wasn’t a nurse to go to a baby shower. They gave the woman 20 Vicodin in one day! If she was in that much pain she should have gone to the ER. The doc talked to her twice that day. Four hours before she passed and they said she had gotten up and eaten soup but didn’t say anything was wrong. It’s sad all around but I don’t see how they can blame the doctor.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    Kanye could have done ALL of this off of social media. He is doing all of this for attention and it is disgusting. He should have enough respect for his mother not to use her death as a means to generate buzz for himself. I am appalled. I won't be buying his music, downloading, or streaming any of his music. I refuse to participate in any of his shenanigans. And I am willing to bet good money that Kanye will either record, or repeat what their conversation was about. He is just horrible. And don't nobody come to me with he has mental issues, because this is just narcissistic.

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    I also think Kanye put this out publicly first so the man would be guilt-ed into seeing him. Every move Kanye makes seems calculated and devious.

  • the guest

    He shouldn’t feel guilty. This is not exclusive to him and his mother. Many people become entranced by Hollywood beyond their intelligence and control. Hollywood was built with that in mind to enrapture people with vanity, fame, and fortune. I Imagine the pull of Hollywood is very hard to resist until you get over it.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    "Love deals with the truth "..... to even sit down with this clown... one big fat lie is beyond me... It void the entire conversation sitting with this liar... Kanya is ate up with guilt and trying to victimize himself. . As usual .....

  • Durbhad CC

    11 years later?? i guess.

  • Kemi

    The K koven are making Kanye do the most to save face. This is obviously another marketing ploy for his album. Why does he feel to meet with the doctor after these years? I just find it hard to support his latest gimmicks.
    Even though a mother’s love and presence are irreplaceable. Don’t think this is about closure.

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    Question is Adams practicing anywhere else outside California?

    OT: Blac Chyna is pregnant per the NY Post.

  • WutizstillHERE!

    I truly believe he is deflecting..in truth the hate he feels is for himself..he has self guilt about his mothers passing, he has self anger and hate that's why he project the way he does..

  • Dystaney Kimble

    Even with the family publicist ... I mean Kim , speaking about Khloe on Ellen . So planned out and draining . Ellen has long been acknowledged as a "back scratcher " to the Klan . Translation : the interview was exactly what kim wanted out at the time and Tristian is almost out of there .

  • Kim’s Original Face

    Hopefully this will start the process of healing for him. I am hoping because he hasnt been right since his mother died.

  • Karen Brady


  • http://www.missjhaneuniverse.com Monday

    The old Kanye is dead... he should change his name to Brother Love...wait, Diddy done that already and failed miserably...

    Theses celebs don't know what to do with themselves anymore...

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    Him again

  • WutizstillHERE!

    This byrd is racking up baby money isn't she?!! lawd..



  • Kanyade

    ain't much love involved. just ego and hubris. :(

  • Ghost

    If this is all for publicity for his new music...SHAME ON HIM! If he is still in the HATE MODE after 10 years??!! What has he been doing? Please get some proper discrete therapy and stay off social media....smh

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    He needs to sit down with a psychiatrist. That's who he really needs to sit down with.

  • Ni Ni

    That man shouldn't even entertain kanye. I hope he know what he says will not be confidential. Everybody gives kanye what he wants. He's a spoiled child.

  • ?Sugar&Spice?

    Even if she died during surgery, that's a chance everyone takes.

    Kanye needs to be shut down, now. His antics have become corny.

    Still don't understand why women her age get plastic surgery. Just exercise, eat well and take care of yourself. She was an older women with health issues, so what was plastic surgery going to drastically improve? Just take care of yourself. I understand you want to look good but there are other ways besides risking your life. Vanity is something else.

  • Blue

    I just realized he shot two shoes at him. That second one got him. Is it wrong that I'm laughing?

    NOOOOO you're not, I am too

  • XoXo

    If you want to forgive & stop hating, you don’t post the man’s pic & be hateful about it. That’s straight up malicious, and it’s talking out of both sides of his mouth.

  • Blue

    This dude need to go on Iyanla and cry in her bosom for a few minutes.

  • XoXo

    He needs to get on his knees with Jesus!

  • hi-liter

    That money makes them feel they don't have to do it the natural way. Rich folk don't have to delay gratification.

  • NuBeauty

    I just hope he finds the peace his is looking for so his mind can be at peace. To you beautiful people.....I hope your day is filled with positive energy and you smile as bright as the Sun. You are amazing, wonderful, GREAT and never let no one tell you different. May all the blessings your soul desire is fulfilled and your dreams becomes your reality. Of course, if nobody has said this to you in some time, guess what....I LOVES YA BABY!!!! HAVE A GREAT DAY!!!!

  • hi-liter

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    iyanla needs to punch him in the face

  • hi-liter

    I don't know about this, it could go left, real quick.

    Hubris is not always a bad thing. JS

    Adams, 64, can no longer practice medicine in California
    So after a string of doctors told Donda no to the plastic surgery, she went and got a shade tree ass doctor to do it. SMFH.

    Kayne needs to forgive his mom for putting her "looks" before her health. His healing needs to start with his mom first. He still blaming other people for a decision SHE made for herself.

  • MissHarlem

    Nope laugh on. This never gets old to me. You know how mad you gotta be to throw your own shoe and go bare foot ???

  • FukkFolks2018
  • MissHarlem

    Exactly. Next post too ?

  • FukkFolks2018

    Im tired and I just damn it GOT HERE sis

  • Quitedeliteful

    That's very kind of the surgeon to meet with him. Me, I wouldn't bother...

  • free

    now i get the sads cause they tortured this guy and he eventually died in prison, i think.

  • king shun

    also a part about they let some cna cousin take care of her who didnt even know what she was doing

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    More like him talkin out his a**.

  • Connie

    He would make Iyanla go weep in the bushes

  • Blue


  • BingBangBoom

    I don't think this will turn out good. Especially when the doctor will not take blame.

  • Guest

    Yup. But you know what? Plastic surgery only delays aging for a little while it cannot, I repeat, cannot turn back time. After a certain age it makes no goddam sense and you look worse. Age gracefully. smh.

  • Passion

    I hope they meet in s public place and the doctor better has body guards!

  • Nina Ross

    Her some being obsessed with women that look nothing like her is probably the reason she wanted a full body reconstruction... surprised she didn’t get skin bleaching treatments too smdh

  • Trace da Ace

    Adams, who lost 2 malpractice lawsuits prior to Donda West’s operation,
    and with this information, why would he be a good Dr for Ms. Donda's operation????? Research before you go under the knife.....

  • Ms. Cree

    Looks like they could be kin

  • Wreckognize Game

    Kanye wants to meet and talk because the doctor has turned that finger pointing back to his family. Good call doctor, it's a shame you didn't do the proper testing and follow proper procedure with Ms. Donda.

  • Zaza

    Donda died a day after the surgery, and the quack doctor wants to blame the cousin who has no right to care for a loved one in that capacity ( its deemed unethical for medical professionals to care for family in a hospital or clinical setting). So sad. Own up to your s#&t Mr. Adams!!!

  • imright

    I sold my soul to the devil: that's a crappy deal
    Least it came with a few toys like a Happy Meal - Kanye West Eyes Closed

  • XoXo


  • Harley

    Yep it sickens me how this family uses fake drama and scandal to stay in the news. Ellen, TMZ, and Ryan sea crest are all pawns and on payroll. Please let them go away. Nobody cares about Khloe Roldan.. we care about Jordan his first baby moms
