When did Kanye West’s mom die? – The Sun

KANYE West kicked off his first presidential campaign event in North Charleston, South Carolina Sunday evening.

West invited a couple of young women from the audience to speak on education inequity and police brutality. He then launched into a speech that touched on a wide range of topics and his pro-life stance.

The rapper broke into tears talking about what he said was his father’s desire to abort him, and his wife having their first child “even when I didn’t want to.”

Donda West was born on July 12, 1949 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Donda was married to Ray West, father of Kanye West.

Donda earned a Bachelor’s degree in English from the Virginia Union University, in Richmond Virginia. She received a Master’s degree at Atlanta University, Atlanta, Georgia.

She furthered her education and received a Doctorate degree in English at Auburn University, Auburn, Alabama.


After the divorce from her husband Ray West, who then was an aerial photo journalist for the Atlanta Journal Newspaper, she and Kanye moved to Chicago in 1980.

On November 10, 2007, Donda West died of coronary artery disease and multiple post-operative factors due to or as a consequence of liposuction and mammoplasty, she was 58.

Records indicated that in 2001, two malpractice lawsuits against Jan Adams, the plastic surgeon who performed procedures on Donda, ended in judgments of $217,337 and $250,000.

At his Sunday evening campaign rally West gave a long speech when the topic of abortion was brought up.

“My dad wanted to abort me. My mom saved my life. There would have been no Kanye West without my mom,” he said of his mother.

A sobbing West revealed he stopped Kim Kardashian from having an abortion when she was pregnant with their first child, North, in 2013.


He yelled at the crowd, “She had the pills in her hand. My girlfriend called me screaming, crying. I'm a rapper. And she said I’m pregnant. She was crying.”

As tears were streaming down his face, he screamed, “I almost killed my daughter.”

“No Plan B. There is Plan A,” Kanye cried towards the end of his political event.

During his campaign rally West said he believed Harriet Tubman didn’t actually free slaves.

“Harriet Tubman never actually freed the slaves, she just had them work for other white people,” West said during his speech.

Tubman was born into slavery in the early 1900s and is believed to have freed enslaved black Americans via an Underground Railroad system.
