Dondra & Kanye West

A friend of the West family says that Kanye is devastated by his mother’s death and is in “denial”, which is certainly understandable considering the situation. Via NY Daily News:

“I don’t think Kanye was aware Donda was getting the surgery, or certainly the extent of it. He loved and supported her just the way she was. He thought she was beautiful.”

“Donda had image issues, like a lot of women.”

In other Kanye news, we has pulled out of performing at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show that is to air December 4th. Our prayers still go out to Kanye, we know this is a rough time for him, but we are sure he will turn tragedy to triumph like he has in the past.

    I’m sure he is in denial, he is going through a terrible ordel. Losing a parent would be so painful…I hope he can find some inner strength, but of course iw wouldn’e be easy. God bless to the West family and may they find some comfort…

    I guess I need to read the whole story because that little excerpt doesn’t indicate that he is in denial. I don’t even know what that means. Do they mean he doesn’t believe she passed?

    I commend this man for being human and grieving rather than disrespecting his mother’s memory and going through with the perfomance. It amazed me how Marie Osmond was seemingly unfazed by her father’s passing and continued on with her performance. I guess we all grieve in different ways.

    C-Red, calm down a little bit. Its not that deep,seriously.

  • Smartie

    I know we’re gonna see a new more humble Kanye in going further. Those rants about not winning awards shouldn’t mean ish to him now.

    i still dont understand why a woman of 58 yrs still had the desire to have cosmetic surgery

    did she have the time to say her last prayer? how will GOD receive her?

    It didn’t say he’s in denial. He wasn’t aware that she was having the procedure which doesn’t shock me. A lot of people, esp black folk, don’t tell their family members because they’re afraid of being judged. If you’ve reached the point of going ahead with the procedure, you don’t really want someone being on your ass for for being “vain.”

    Most women, regardless of how they look, have body issues. It’s amazing that some of the most gorgeous, flawless women in the world have it so badly. Your kid telling you that you’re beautiful isn’t going to change what’s in your head really, especially if you’ve spent all your life hating your body.

    @ Bird: It means that he hasn’t accepted it. It’s normal after a person’s passing because the shock takes time to wear off and accept that a person has passed away. I understand what he’s going through. After my mother passed, it took me time to accept that she passed away and to deal with the grief….

    We all have to die, but I could understand how some people look shamingly on this because she was getting some sort of physical enhancement that she didnt really need. She seemed like such a healthy woman. And for those that say hes in denial, usually when someone dies suddenly for something so trivial, most relatives would be in denial, angered, upset and disgusted.
