He's no longer Doctor Jan Adams.

The man whose surgery on Kanye West's mother led to her death last year was arrested for drunk driving yesterday morning - and has now be stripped of his medical license.

But - get this! - it was for a different, irresponsible crime!

The California Department of Consumer Affairs â€" who oversees the Medical Board â€" sent Adams a letter on May 21, informing him that he had 30 days to pay his child support or he would lose his license to practice.

It didn't happen and now Adams is no longer a licensed to practice medicine.

A spokesperson for the California Medical Board said: "As of midnight last night, he is not allowed to practice medicine in California."

Thank goodness.

Happy Thanksgiving from all of us here at The Hollywood Gossip. What would this traditional holiday be without family, friends, food, football and reflection upon some of the things we most appreciate in our lives.

For this celebrity news site, that means expressing thanks to some of the biggest turkeys we've come to know this past year. Below is a look at our staff's Top 10 (take a wild guess who was voted our Biggest Turkey of the Year) ...

Conservator and Daughter

10. Riley Giles. Not only does he give Lindsay Lohan a good stuffing, this clown is a meathead to the max. See mug shots. Yeah. Prime turkey material.

9. John Mayer. Makes the list in spite (or perhaps because) of the fact that he dates Minka Kelly. Guy's dome is also roughly the size of Plymouth Rock.

8. Michael Vick. Oh, wait, he's a dog.

7. Jan Adams. Worst. Doctor. Ever.

6. Brad Womack. Worst. Bachelor. Ever.

5. Dancing with the Stars judges. These losers really dropped the ball this season with some dubious decisions. Sabrina Bryan was robbed worse than Native Americans by the New World's European settlers. Close, anyway.

4. Spencer Pratt. The Hills villain sure can gobble up publicity.

3. Heather Mills. Imagine the kind of Thanksgiving feast you could throw after gold-digging your way to more than $50M of your ex-husband's fortune!

2. Blake Fielder-Civil. Raging alcoholism. Massive quantities of hard ass drugs. The surprise wedding. The bloody melee. A barroom brawl. Some witness tampering. This holiday, Amy Winehouse's husband should be thankful he's alive.

Fnally, The Hollywood Gossip's Biggest Turkey of the Year award goes to ...

1. Britney Spears. Talk about a foregone conclusion. Like the New England Patriots of the NFL, it was Britney Spears in her own league and everyone else playing for second. We raise a turkey leg (and some pork rinds) to you, Brit.

Dr. Jan Adams, the Los Angeles plastic surgeon who operated on Kanye West's mother, Donda West, one day before she passed away, has kind of broken his silence and spoken to People about the events surrounding West's death.

The full interview with Jan Adams can be found in the latest issue of the magazine, which hits newsstands Friday. Only excerpts are available now.

Although he refused to speak on the actual cause of death "out of respect" for her, Adams denies that the surgery on Donda West was rushed.

"I find that offensive and sort of unfair," says Adams, who had a warrant out for his arrest before showing up in court for another unrelated case last week. "I'm thorough and I do my job well."

Several people might take issue with that statement. But as for his LONG, LONG list of legal problems and malpractice suits, Adams seems unworried.

"When people say 'plastic surgery' they think of me," he says. "These suits don't represent bad plastic surgery, but a bad decision in terms of choice of patient."

Does that when we think of bad driving, and think of Britney Spears, it doesn't mean bad driving, but rather a bad decision in terms of choice of driver?

In any case, Adams was also supposed to appear on Larry King Live this week but bailed at the last second at the urging of the West family, TMZ reports.

Jan Adams appeared after the show's first commercial break, at which point he politely told King he would not speak: "I came to talk about things in the press that aren't accurate about me. But I have a tremendous amount of love and respect for the West family and they've asked me not to go on."

Later, Alan Tenenbaum, an attorney for Dr. Adams, explained that he received a letter from attorneys representing the West family, asking him not to appear.

Jan Adams shows up on Larry King Live... then bolts.

An L.A. County Superior Court judge has issued a warrant for the arrest of Jan Adams, who didn't show up for a hearing today, reports TMZ.

Lori Ufondu sued Dr. Jan Adams and won a judgment of over $100,000 after he left a sponge inside her following surgery. Ufondu's lawyer says Dr. Adams hasn't paid.

Dr. Jan Adams was ordered to appear at 8:30 a.m. this morning in San Pedro, Calif., for a "judgment debtor" hearing, in order to establish where he had assets. The doctor didn't show, and the judge issued a warrant.

Dr. Jan Adams, who doesn't look or act shady whatsoever, operated on Kanye West's mother, Donda West, the day before she tragically passed away last week.

UPDATE: As of 2 p.m. PST, Dr. Jan Adams has surfaced walked into a Los Angeles County Courtroom to face one of his victims who sued him for malpractice and a botched surgery, TMZ is reporting live on the scene.

Dr. Adams was asked about the death of Kanye West's mom, and he said, "I can not comment appropriately until I receive the coroner's report." The "doctor" arrived, alone, in a black pinstriped suit and tie.

We will have more on the Jan Adams case as the story develops.

Meanwhile, colleagues, friends and family gathered Friday to celebrate the life of Donda West with music and tributes at a memorial service Friday at Chicago State University, where she was a faculty member for 24 years.

Fighting back tears, one good friend recalled that among other things, West was always "open and friendly with everyone. It didn't matter if you had a PHD, a bachelor's degree or no degree at all. She made everyone feel important."

Another friend read a poem in honor of Donda West about mothers, which included the lines: "How shall we celebrate mothers?/How shall we call them in the winter of their lives?/What melody will cure slow bones?/Who will bring them worriless late-years?/Who will thank them for hidden pains?"

Jan Adams has almost as many legal problems as Kevin Federline and Shar Jackson have kids.

The latest to be uncovered by TMZ? Court documents filed by Susie Field, the ex-wife of Dr. Adams, that say he physically assaulted her during their marriage.

According to the paperwork, Field claims on November 23, 2006, Dr. Adams became upset with Susie for taking a phone call during dinner. Susie claims: "He wanted to speak to whomever was calling me."

They began arguing and went up to the bedroom. According to the document, Dr. Adams was yelling: "I'm going to f**king kill you. I'm going to beat you. You need to be beaten." Susie claims Dr. Adams then "swung his right closed fist at my face...he attacked me," adding, [Dr. Adams] grabbed me with one arm and threw me toward the bed. I struck the bed and fell onto the floor."

Also, in 2005, Field says the doctor become"angry, threw me on the bed and began to strangle me. I thought I was going to die as he strangled me to the point of almost blacking out" because another man looked in her direction.

Once again, Adams is the uncertified plastic surgeon who performed an operation on Donda West. She died the next day.

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."

Jan Adams is a worse doctor than Britney Spears is a mother.

Seriously. As TMZ outlines, the surgeon who performed plastic surgery on Donda West a day before her death was that bad at his job. Not to mention life.

Sit back and get comfortable, as we recount all the ways in which Dr. Jan Adams is an awful human being:

- In a malpractice suit from December 2005, Bonita Hovey claims Adams "failed to give the plaintiff proper preoperative and postoperative follow up care ... " resulting in a "postoperative infection" that caused her to undergo two surgeries to remove sutures and revise her scar."

Adams also made a "false assertion that he was a board certified plastic surgeon." He's not.

- In another lawsuit, a patient of Dr. Jan Adams claims he got her drunk after surgery, had intercourse with her and got her pregnant. No, seriously. TMZ has the documents and everything.

Teana Lucas claims the doctor agreed to perform liposuction on her upper arms and abdomen. The plaintiff, an aspiring model and actress, alleged as the procedure was about to begin, Dr. Adams "whispered in plaintiff's ear that he 'loved' her, that he was 'going to marry her."

On November 24, 2004, the suit alleges Dr. Jan Adams told her she should get dressed and that he was taking her out for dinner. After three glasses of wine, the heavily-medicated plaintiff claims she was "heavily intoxicated."

That's when, according to the suit, Dr. Jan Adams took her to his house and had sexual intercourse with her.

More and more controversy is swirling around Jan Adams, the doctor who performed the surgery on Donda West that quickly led to her death.

Here's the mug shot of the bad doc, courtesy of his 2006 arrest for DUI.

Moreover, TMZ has learned that Dr. Adams is not even Board Certified with the American Board of Plastic Surgery.

There have also been two malpractice judgments filed against Dr. Adams, both in 2001. One was for $217,337 and the other for $250,000.

This guy is shadier than Cisco Adler.

Before we get to the controversy involved in the death of Donda West, here's a statement her son issued on behalf of his mourning family:

"Kanye West, his family and friends would like to thank everyone for the outpouring of support and kind words that have come in from across the country since the death of his mother, Dr. Donda West.

After working in higher education for 31 years, Dr. Donda West and Kanye West co-founded the Kanye West Foundation with the mission of helping to combat the severe dropout problem in high schools across the country.

The first and signature initiative of the Kanye West Foundation is Loop Dreams. Designed to capitalize on students existing interest in hip-hop, Loop Dreams challenges students to learn more about what's behind hip-hop culture in order to help them develop skills, express themselves creatively and be empowered.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made in Dr. West's name to the Kanye West Foundation/Loop Dreams Teacher Training Institute."

But there's more. The doctor who performed the procedure, Jan Adams, is taking issue with anyone who claims he contributed to the tragic death...
