In the wake of the sudden death of his mother, Donda, Kanye West has pulled out of performing at this year's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, ET is reporting. Meanwhile, as a coroner investigates "complications of surgery" as Donda's possible cause of death, it appears that Kanye might not have known his mom was going under the knife for a breast reduction and tummy tuck. "He loved and supported her just the way she was," a family friend tells the New York Daily News. "He thought she was beautiful." However, the source notes, "Donda had image issues, like a lot of women."

In has since come to light that West's cosmetic surgeon of choice, Dr. Jan Adams - who operates out of a storefront above a West Los Angeles Kinko's - has a history of DUI convictions and malpractice judgments.
