Dr. Jan Adams responds to Kanye West.
Over the weekend, West said he wanted to put Dr. Adams, who performed his mother Donda’s final surgery, on the cover of his next album as an act of forgiveness. Today, Adams replies with a 3-page open letter published by The Blast.
“Thank you for thinking of me for the cover of your next album. That is kind of you,” he wrote. “Unfortunately, I have to decline at this time, and I ask that you cease and desist using my photo or any image of me to promote your album or any of your work.”
Adams, who performed a tummy tuck and breast reduction surgery on Donda a day before her 2007 passing, went on to note excerpts from the coroner’s report. It highlights alleged negligence of her nurse, Kanye’s cousin Stephan Scoggins, following the surgery.
“Perhaps you should put your cousin’s picture on your next album,” he wrote. “Don’t put my picture out there and claim you are about love. Love deals with the truth.”
Kanye shared Adams’ letter on Twitter along with a message. “This is amazing,” he wrote. “Thank you so much for this connection brother. I can’t wait to sit with you and start healing.”
