Donda West's doc walks off 'Larry King Live'



Dr. Jan Adams, the plastic surgeon who operated on Kanye West’s mother Donda the day before she died, walked off Larry King Live on Tuesday night. Adams had agreed to be interviewed by King to clear up some nasty rumors, but then changed his mind.

“I have a tremendous amount of love and respect for the West family and they have asked me not to go on,” he said. “And I’ve said from the very beginning, I don’t have a side in this. They are my side and so I’m going to respect their wishes.”

King asked Adams if he was ever going to speak out on the circumstances surrounding Donda’s death, but the doctor dodged the question: “When they’re comfortable, then I’ll be comfortable. If they’re never comfortable, then I’ll never be comfortable.”

The cancellation came only hours after the 58-year-old’s funeral in an Oklahoma City suburb.
