Rhymes with Snitch has a rundown on Dr. Jan Adams—the plastic surgeon who worked on Kanye's mother, Dr. Donda West, before she died—and the assload of legal problems he's had, including six malpractice suits in the last two years and a restraining order from an ex-girlfriend. I would hate to be in Dr. Jan's loafers right now, staring down a mega-rich superstar with a known aversion to backing down from fights and a mama complex of extreme magnitude, even for a rapper.
I did get to spend some time with Dr. West a while back at a fundraiser for the Kanye West Foundation. She seemed exceptionally intelligent, caring, and strong as hell, and it was easy to see why Kanye worships her the way he does. I think everyone in the room at one point or another during the event thought to themselves, "Wouldn't it be great if she was my mom?"
