The Image Courtesy Peter Kramer/NBCCalifornia plastic surgeon responsible for operating on Kanye West‘s mother, Donda West, is telling his side of the story.
In a new interview with The New York Post, Dr. Jan Adams, wants to clear his name in Donda’s death in November 2007 and claims the man who needs to be questioned is Kanye’s cousin Stephan Scroggins, a registered nurse with a Ph.D. in public health. “It’s a complete tragedy,” said Adams. “She should still be alive.”
Following her liposuction, tummy-tuck and breast reduction, Donda was placed in the care of Scroggins at home and Adams claims it was improper aftercare that caused her death.
“It baffles me when nobody wants to know the truth,” Adams told The Post. “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 balls or if he was any kind of man he could (speak up). But the real answer is he probably won’t.”
Adams adds that the story has not been told accurately in the media. “Most people that I run into think she died on the table, they don’t even know this lady was home for a day,” said Adams. “The truth hasn’t been revealed… 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.”
Kanye’s mother was pronounced dead at Centinela Freeman hospital on November 10, 2007, after a 911 call from her Playa Del Rey, California residence. Vomiting and “medication use for pain” were contributing factors in her demise, according to the coroner’s report.
