    OMG, my hearth goes to Kanye and the West family. :( , I never knew her, but I feel like I have a stone on my heart. I heard on tv that she died while having Plastic Surgery. I wonder,if it is true, what could went so wrong to have her die. When you think about it, in the year 2007 you could never imagined that people can pass away because of plastic surgery, but it can happen. I am thinking over my previous comment when I talked about Calista Flockhart ( that today is her birthday but she attended some dining looking like a 83 years old woman , not 43 how old she really is). Makes you afraid to even think about plastic surgery, if people who pay dozens of bucks die on the table… then what could happen to the rest of us. Again, I am sorry for Kanye’s mother, my heart goes to his family. :(

    now i read this on another site, but they are saying that the cause of death was due to a tummy tuck and breast comestic surgery..this site is known to make up stuff and lie, however if this is true it is even more sad because she was going in for something that is considered a routine procedure these days. RIP Ms. West
