Kanye West mother’s surgeon walks out of TV interview

He refuses to discuss Donda West's death

The plastic surgeon who operated on Kanye West’s mother shortly before she died reportedly walked off an interview on ‘CNN’s Larry King Live’ yesterday (November 20).

Dr Jan Adams had initially agreed to appear on the show to clear up what he said were false allegations against him regarding Donda West’s death.

He apparently changed his mind after the West family asked him not to do the interview.

“I have a tremendous amount of love and respect for the West family and they have asked me not to go on,” Adams said. “And I’ve said from the very beginning, I don’t have a side in this. They are my side and so I’m going to respect their wishes.”

West died just hours after Adams performed a tummy tuck and liposuction procedures on her.

The coroner said early indications suggest West died from surgical complications, but the official cause of death won’t be determined for weeks, pending the results of toxicology and other tests, reports the Associated Press.
