Winfrey: 'I Didn't Introduce West To Dr. Adams'
OPRAH WINFREY has distanced herself from reports she introduced plastic surgeon DR. JAN ADAMS to KANYE WEST's late mother. Adams, who taped a segment of The Oprah Winfrey Show in October 2003, performed surgery on Donda West on Friday (09Nov07) at the Centinela Freeman Regional Medical Center in Los Angeles. West died, allegedly from complications following the surgery, on Saturday (10Nov07). Adams has since offered his condolences to West's family and now Winfrey has been dragged into the controversy, following reports she suggested Donda seek out Dr. Adams when she appeared on Oprah in 2005. Winfrey's representative says, "The reports... are absolutely untrue. Oprah Winfrey did not personally introduce nor recommend Dr. Jan Adams to Donda West."
