Late last night rapper Kanye West issued a statement regarding the death of his beloved mom, Donda West, over the weekend. In it he thanked fans for their support and kind words, spoke about his mother’s life as an educator, and requested that donations be made in lieu of flowers to the Kanye West Foundation/Loop Dreams Teacher Training Institute.
Yet the emerging scandal surrounding Donda’s death continues to grab headlines, as more information is revealed about the plastic surgery that took place just hours before her passing. A plastic surgeon, Dr. Andre Aboolian, with whom West had consulted, came forward to state that he had advised that she receive medical clearance before moving forward with the procedures. West did not end up receiving treatment from Dr. Aboolian, and now the doctor who did treat her has come forward to accuse Aboolian of being “sleazy and manipulating.” Dr. Jan Adams (a dude) says that West met with him for four months about the surgery and changed her mind numerous times on whether or not she would move forward with the breast augmentation and tummy tuck. Heres where it gets shady: it turns out that Dr. Adams was almost suspended by the Medical Board of California after three DUI convictions. TMZ has also turned up two “malpractice judgments” against the doctor, and allege that West’s operation lasted 8 hours - twice the time it normally takes. Adams has also appeared on Oprah and co-hosted The Other Half - that short-lived male version of the The View.
Of course, these recent allegations still do not change the simple fact that Kanye lost his mom in a sudden and unexpected manner. Our thoughts remain with the rapper and his family during this difficult time. [Image: Getty]
