Kanye West’s mother’s plastic surgeon jailed for one year

Drunk driving charge sees Dr Jan Adams put away

Dr Jan Adams – the man who performed plastic surgery on Kanye West‘s mother Donda, shortly before she died – has been jailed for a year for drunken driving.

Adams pleaded guilty to the charge last year, after he drove his car the wrong way on Interstate 680. His blood alcohol level was .20 per cent, reports the Associated Press.

When he performed West‘s surgery, the Medical Board Of California were seeking to remove his license to practice because of multiple alcohol-related arrests. There were also two malpractice judgements against him.


West died a day after having surgery for a breast reduction, tummy tuck and liposuction. The autopsy cited heart disease and complications that arose from the surgery as the cause of death.
