Kanye West Wants to “Forgive” His Dead Mother’s Final Surgeon by Putting His Picture on the Cover of His New Album


Kanye West’s lovely mother, a college professor named Donda West, died after complications from plastic surgery on November 10, 2007. She was 58. It was only after that that Kanye really went off the rails. He’s never been the same since then.

Now, in his latest barrage of Tweets, Kanye has sent out a copy of a Text he sent to someone declaring that he will put a picture of his mother’s plastic surgeon, Jan Adams, on the cover of his new album.

“I want to forgive and stop hating,” Kanye writes. But is that true? Putting Adams’s picture on the cover may not be legal, first of all. But if he did it, is Kanye really trying to achieve closure and peace? Or is he provoking a fight?

Kanye’s mom died of heart disease a day after Adams performed liposuction and breast reduction surgery. She walked out of the clinic where the surgery was performed when it was over, and was prescribed Vicodin.

The next day she suffered a heart attack and 911 was called.

“The final manner of death could not be determined,” the coroner said in a statement. “Multiple post-operative factors could have played a role in the death. The exact contribution of each factor could not be determined. There was no evidence of a surgical or anesthetic misadventure.”

According to a 2015 interview, Donda West went home against doctor’s advice to go to a rehab clinic. At home she took 20 Vicodins, vomited and choked to death on her own vomit. Also, she was five foot two, weighed a whopping 188 lbs. and suffered from high blood pressure and blood sugar.

Kanye may say he wants to forgive and forget — whatever, this week he was all about sending Hallmark type messages of love. But really, putting Dr. Adams on the cover his album will make the doctor a target. And West is not stupid enough not to know that.

Later today, Kanye decided that Parkland student Emma Gonzales was his “hero” and that he was “inspired” by her. She’d do well to ignore this and stay away from him until Kanye’s meds have been adjusted.
