The controversial, law-breaking doctor who performed fatal surgery on Donda West has apologized for the tragedy.
"I want to first express my deepest condolences to the West family at a very difficult time," Jan Adams told Entertainment Tonight. "As a medical doctor practicing in this field, I hold sacred the bond of confidentiality that exists between the patient and doctor.
Out of respect of the West family, and the absence of verifiable information, any comment without having first discussing that information with the family would be unprofessional."
And no way the guy who was sued by a patient for getting her drunk and impregnating her wants to be unprofessional.
In a related development, Oprah Winfrey, who had Adams as a guest on her talk show, denied a report that she introduced Kanye West's mother and Adams.
"Absolutely untrue. Oprah Winfrey did not personally introduce nor recommend Dr. Jan Adams to Donda West," Winfrey's rep said. "Dr. Adams taped a segment of The Oprah Winfrey Show on Oct. 28, 2003. Donda West appeared with her son during a taping of The Oprah Winfrey Show on April 27, 2005.
Oprah Winfrey has not been in touch with either Dr. Adams or Donda West since their respective appearances."
