Kanye West wants to make peace with doctor who operated on his late mother

Los Angeles Times

Kanye West wants peace with the plastic surgeon who operated on his mother the day before she died.

“Open letter from Jan Adams. This is amazing,” West tweeted Monday. “Thank you so much for this connection brother. I can't wait to sit with you and start healing.”

The rapper also posted the letter, published by the Blaze, in which Adams said that per the coroner, Donda West’s death was caused not by his surgery but by poor after-care from Kanye West’s cousin, Stephan Scoggins.

The letter was actually a somewhat threatening cease-and-desist message responding to Ye’s revelation — in a tweet from last week that appears to have been deleted — that his new album would about his mom and would feature a picture of the doctor on the cover.

Adams wasn’t having it.

“I don’t want to seem ungrateful … I just think that if this conversion to love is genuine on your part ... then it's inappropriate to drag the negativity of the past with it,” he wrote.

On Nov. 9, 2007, Adams performed a routine breast reduction, tummy tuck and liposuction on Donda West. She died the next day at home.

Later in the letter, he got real.

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

“Over the past ten years I have tolerated all the errors, misinformation and frank lies ... out of respect for the doctor-patient privilege and your mother. Nonetheless, do not mistake kindness for weakness.”

Adams surrendered his California medical license in 2009 after a couple of DUIs. It was reinstated several years later, but he gave it up again in 2014 when he failed to meet the terms of his probation.
