Contact Us Fills in for Kanye West at Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show

Kanye West pulled out of a scheduled appearance at this year’s Victoria Secret Fashion show in the wake of the sudden death of his mother, Dr. Donda West. According to the Associated Press, Black Eyed Peas frontman was tapped as a last minute replacement for the show, which was taped on Thursday night (November 15) at the Kodak Theater in Los Angeles. Dr. West passed away on Saturday night (November 10) following a cosmetic surgical procedure. A subsequent autopsy has proved to be inconclusive and a specific cause of death is not expected to be known for another month and a half, pending further tests. Dr. Jan Adams, who performed the procedure, has denied any wrongdoing on his part, but new details about his past have brought his professional reputation into question. According to several published reports, Adams has paid out over $500,000 to settle two civil malpractice suits. He is also reportedly under investigation by the Medical Board of California, and in danger of losing his medical license over two alcohol related DUI arrests within the last four years.
