A story about Kanye's mother's plastic surgeon

It's been in the news that Ms. Donde West before she died had a cosmetic procedure done and it ultimately led to her death. This FOXnews article confirms that apparently Dr. Jan Adams has been the target of malpractice suits in the past. This almost reminds me of an episode of Nip/Tuck.

It's also been in the news that Ms. West was going around looking for a doctor to perform a cosmetic procedure on her but most refused telling her that she should get medical clearance before the operate on her. Well I'm sure that if you're determined to get a procedure done on you or at least get a diagnosis you're looking for then you'll keep looking for someone who would right?

Anyway let's get back to FOXNews here. Let's see about Dr. Adams...

The plastic surgeon who reportedly operated on Kanye West's mother before she died had two malpractice suits filed against him that ended in payouts and was arrested twice for driving under the influence, according to medical board records.

The Medical Board of California is investigating whether the license of Dr. Jan Adams should be revoked or suspended after he was arrested twice in the past four years for the alcohol-related offenses, the records say.

Adams told celebrity Web site TMZ that he performed a tummy tuck and breast reduction on Donda West before she died Saturday night at age 58. Adams said she might have died from a heart attack, pulmonary embolism, or massive vomiting.

Preliminary information suggested West died from complications of surgery, said county coroner spokesman Lt. Fred Corral. An autopsy was expected to be conducted by Wednesday.

In a 2006 case, Adams was found guilty of driving with a blood-alcohol level of .08 or greater, and he pleaded no contest in 2003 to driving under the influence, according to the medical records.
