Surgeon Who Operated on Kanye West's Mom Blames Her Nephew For Her Death: 'I Was The Fall Guy'
Dr. Jan Adams spoke exclusively to INSIDE EDITION about how he believes he was set up "as the fall guy" after 58-year-old Donda West passed away in 2007.
Dr. Jan Adams spoke exclusively to INSIDE EDITION about how he believes he was set up "as the fall guy" after 58-year-old Donda West passed away in November 2007.
Following her death, his practice went out of business – but he says he did nothing wrong. He said the lengthy liposuction, tummy-tuck and breast-reduction surgery went ahead without any issues.
Instead he is pointing the finger at Donda’s nephew – Kanye’s cousin – Stephan Scoggins.
Dr. Adams said he told Donda that she should recover in a medical facility but she insisted that Scoggins, a nurse, care for her at her home.
"What’s Donda West’s problem? Her nurse wasn’t there," Dr. Adams said. "Her nurse was gone to a baby shower rather than take care of his aunt."
He said she was left lying on her back and she choked.
"This lady shouldn’t be dead," he added. "All he had to do was sit her up."
Scoggins has denied the allegations that he is responsible for Donda's death, and the nurses’ board dismissed the case against him.
But Dr. Adams is pleading with Kanye West to speak out about "what he knows."
"The truth when you bury it just grows bigger," he said.
