Kanye West’s mom, Donda West, died in November 2007, after what was supposed to be routine cosmetic procedures performed by Dr. Jan Adams.

Critics accused the doctor of performing too many procedures on the same day. Donda underwent surgery for a tummy tuck, liposuction and breast augmentation.

Adams has been universally blamed for the tragedy. He’s now speaking out in an attempt to clear his name.

“Kanye West can end this by telling the truth. The doctor had nothing to do with his mom’s death,” Adams told Inside Edition. “Donda West survived the surgery very well…she was at home.”

Adams added that Donda was in good physical health at the time of the surgeries. He lays the blame for her passing at the feet of Kanye’s cousin, Stephan Scoggins, a nurse who took care of Ms. West at home against the doctor’s wishes.

“Her nurse wasn’t there,” Adams continued. “Her nurse was gone to a baby shower, rather than taking care of his aunt.

Donda was left lying on her back causing her to choke to death. She was also given 20 Vicodin tablets by her family, which Adams believes contributed to her passing.

“This lady shouldn’t be dead. All you had to do was sit her up. And every nurse on the planet knows that,” Adams said. “My point to Kanye is, tell what he knows. Point the finger at who the coroner pointed at. The truth when you bury it just grows bigger.”
