Kanye West just confessed in a tell-all interview he underwent liposuction and started abusing painkillers before his 2016 hospitalization. And while fans may be shocked by the revelation, RadarOnline.com can exclusively report all the details about the shocking cosmetic surgery — the same procedure that led to his mother Donda’s sudden death in 2007 — that led to the rapper’s infamous meltdown.
According to private 2017 legal documents exclusively obtained by RadarOnline.com pertaining to his later legal battle against his tour’s insurance company, West, 40, underwent liposuction with a top Beverly Hills cosmetic surgeon on November 7, 2016, just two weeks before he was infamously rushed to a Los Angeles treatment facility.
After the procedure, the documents claim, nurses used powerful painkiller Demerol in the star’s recovery, and the top doctor prescribed opioid Percocet for pain.
In the shocking interview today, West also confessed he was “drugged the f**k out” after the surgery.
But RadarOnline.com first revealed West’s painkiller problem last year.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported from emails exchanged between the troubled rapper’s legal team and attorneys for his tour insurance company, West used liquid marijuana, Ecstasy-related party drug 2cb, anxiety pill Valium, and powerful painkillers Percocet and Demerol in the days leading up to his breakdown.
The father of three even boasted about his drug use in secret video footage obtained by lawyers, his touring company’s lawyer said in one email.
“Mr. West discussed ‘popping Percocets two at a time’ and stated words to the effect that ‘this is all about getting off of drugs, bad drugs,’” the attorney stated.
The toxic cocktail of drugs eventually lead to his involuntary hospitalization on November 21, 2016.
The emails over plastic surgery, drug abuse and hospitalizations eventually led to a full-blown lawsuit between West’s team and the tour’s insurance company. The lawsuit was eventually dismissed and settled out of court in February 2018.
Fresh off his Twitter rants in recent weeks, West spoke out today about everything from supporting Donald Trump to drug abuse.
“I was drugged the f**k out bro. I was on opioids,” he said. “…I was addicted to opioids, I had plastic surgery, because I was trying to look good for ya’ll. I had liposuction.”
As the rapper’s fans know, West’s mother Donda died from complications relating to botched liposuction, tummy tuck and breast reduction surgeries on November 10, 2007.
West bizarrely decided to place his mom’s surgeon, Jan Adams, on the cover of his new album on April 28.
