Doctor Who Operated On Kanye West’s Mother Walks Off ‘Larry King'

The plastic surgeon who operated on hip-hop star Kanye West's mother the day before she died abruptly walked off the set of CNN's 'Larry King Live' Tuesday night, saying he was honoring a request from the West family.

"Basically, I had come here to talk about things in the press that aren't accurate about me. But I have a tremendous amount of love and respect for the West family. They asked me not to go on. And I've said from the very beginning, I don't have a side in this," Dr. Jan Adams said.

"They are my side, and I'm going to respect their wishes. I'm going to apologize to you because I think I'm taking up your air time, but I will not be on the show and I'm not going to discuss any of that. I'm going to honor their wishes."

"I think I'm taking up your air time... I want to thank you for this opportunity," Adams told Larry King before talking of his earpiece and walking off.

There are reports that Adams received a letter from West's family, saying that if Adams discussed the case on the show, the family would ask the Medical Board of California to decertify him.

Kanye West's mother died suddenly on November 10 after she was found unresponsive at her home. Preliminary reports indicate West may have died from complications of cosmetic surgery, which was performed by Adams the day before. West has taken it hard as he broken down during a concert in Paris.

Legal documents filed in California show that Adams faces disciplinary action from the state Medical Board for multiple DUI convictions and that he has paid nearly $500,000 in at least two malpractice lawsuits.
