Dr. Jan Adams, the plastic surgeon who operated on Kanye West’s mom the day before she died, has reacted to the alleged move by the rapper to use his photo as the cover for his upcoming album. In the cease and desist letter made available to TheBlast.com, Dr. Jan Adams thanked Kanye West for the offer of a cover tribute but saying it wouldn’t be appropriate.
According to the Doctor, if Kanye West truly wants to show forgiveness as he stated in his recent Twitter post, he should feature the person he believes is the one responsible for Donda West’s death in November 2007 at age 58.
The Doctor who identified the person as Kanye West’s cousin, wrote;
“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 in his letter said he “tolerated” being the fall guy over the last decade out of respect for the “doctor-patient privilege,” but he has a limit.
“If you want to heal, first call out the people in your own camp who knew better and persisted with the charade in order to hide their own guilt,” he wrote.
In response, West shared the letter on Twitter and told fans: ‘Open letter from Jan Adams This is amazing. Thank you so much for this connection brother. I can’t wait to sit with you and start healing’

Donda West died of heart disease unexpectedly in November 2007 while suffering ‘multiple post-operative factors’ after plastic surgery, the LA coroner confirmed. Adams had performed various cosmetic surgeries on her but she ‘opted to return to her home for care even though she was advised that she receive post-operative care at another facility,’ the report said.
West’s cousin, Stephen Scoggins, was named in the coroner’s report which highlighted his negligence following West’s mother’s surgery; Scoggins was supposed to be the primary caregiver but left her alone because she ‘had appeared to be better’.
