Kanye West's Mom Dies of Cosmetic Surgery

New details regarding the death of Kanye West’s mother, Donda West, have surfaced.

According to her publicist, Donda passed away “as the result of complications from a cosmetic surgical procedure” at Centinela Hospital in Marina del Rey, Los Angeles.

An autopsy is expected to be performed later this week.

Donda, 58, was the chairwoman of Kanye’s education foundation and author of Raising Kanye: Life Lessons from the Mother of a Hip-Hop Star.

my heart goes out to him and his family RIP

I want a Zanessa sighting.

My heartfelt condolences to Kanye West and his family.

That is really sad. I can’t believe people are still dying today from cosmetic surgery. It is crazy how some people will go under the knife many many times and be fine, but another person will have their first procedure ever and die.

You sicko number 13 get off of this website

can’t say and Evil Dead, this is not the time or place for that. Please show some respect for Kanye, his family and his fans.

My heart goes out to Kanye and his family. What a terrible way to lose a loved one.

what the frick is with these “i want zanessa sightings” comments?! i love zanessa as much as the next person, but seriously, dont you think this is the WRONG place to talk about it?!

r.i.p :(

agree with $21
i really love zanessa too, especially vanessa, but omg…

My prayers are with Kanye and his family. Its hard to loose your mother and even harder when the two of you are close. People always telling me god dosnt make mistakes and i admit even now I cannot see the truth in that statement but in time I will and so shall he. Peace and Blessings in this time of sorrow.

That sucks big time….too bad..dont like that guys personality but I feel sorry for him..condolences…hope he finds the strength to get through this

It’s crazy. She could’ve avoided her death if she wasn’t so obsessed with looking to impress.

omg thats sad… n wtf is wrong w/ the people and there “zanessa sightings!” SOMEONE’S MOTHER JUST DIED who the f*uck gives a sh*it about zanessa right now and if u do go talk about it somewhere else!!!!! R.I.P. Donda West

May God Bless You and your family, Kanye. This is a heartbreaking tragedy.

That sucks!
I feel bad for Kanye

While I don’t care for his style of entertainment, I am sorry for his loss.

I hope when the time is right he will use his celebrity statis to right the wrongs that are allowed in the cosmetic field.
