Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Jan Adams wants Kanye West to tell the facts about his mom, Donda West’s death

Dr Jan Adams

Dr. Jan Adams, the Beverly Hills cosmetic surgeon who operated on Kanye West’s mom, Donda West, before her untimely death in November 2007, was never charged in connection with her death. He is sure no one is aware of this fact. He blames Kanye’s cousin for her death, Dr. Stephan Scoggins — a registered nurse with a Ph.D. in public health — her chosen post-op caregiver, despite Adams’ disapproval. In fact, Dr. Adams believes he was a scapegoat for Scoggins’ mistakes. West had liposuction, a tummy-tuck and breast-reduction surgery, which took five and a half hours.

She died one day after surgery due to heart disease, according to the coroner’s report. Adams says his name is tarnished as a result and the outspoken, never at a loss for words, 21-time Grammy Award winner needs to speak up. “Most people think she died on the table, they don’t even know this lady was home for a day. The truth hasn’t been revealed,” reveals Adams in a tell-all interview with the NY Daily News.

“I think (Kanye) should stand up and tell the truth, and the truth will set you free. I think the truth needs to be out there. If he had any b—s or if he was any kind of man he could [speak up]. But the real answer is he probably won’t.”

Adams claims Scoggins left West with friends, went to a baby shower and ignored calls regarding an ailing West. He contends she died in the same manner as a popular rock star who died young. She took 20 Vicodins in less than 24 hours, lay flat on her back and choked on her own vomit.


“She aspirated the food contents into her lungs and that’s that. And four minutes later you’re dead. Jimi Hendrix, that’s how he died. It ain’t magical,” he said.
