AceShowbiz - With his wealth from his hit records and other business ventures, Kanye West was able to spoil his mother Donda West with lavish lifestyle and fund her hobbies, including plastic surgery. But who would've guessed that this liking of hers would later become the cause of her demise. The rapper lost his mom in November 2007 after she suffered complications from cosmetic surgery involving abdominoplasty and breast reduction.
The pain due to the loss of his mother greatly affected Kanye's music as he expressed his feelings in 2008's song "Pinocchio Story", in which he says he would give up everything he's achieved to have his mother back. In a 2015 interview with Q magazine, the Yeezy designer blamed his move to Los Angeles for his mom's death. "If I had never moved to L.A. she'd be alive. I don't want to go far into it because it will bring me to tears," he said.
