Kanye West reveals liposuction and opioid addiction

Entertainment News

Kanye West is sparking outrage for his incendiary comments. It must Tuesday.

The 40-year-old rapper stopped by TMZ Live today for an eye-opening, wide-ranging interview, which not only touched on his opioid addiction and liposuction, but also included him declaring that slavery was a choice.

Before embarking on his “Life of Pablo” tour, West admitted he went in for liposuction.

“I had plastic surgery because I was trying to look good for y’all. I got liposuction because I didn’t want y’all to call me fat like y’all called Rob [Kardashian] at the wedding and made him fly home before me and Kim got married,” West revealed. (Although Rob made the trip to Europe, he didn’t attend Kim and Kanye’s wedding in Italy, abruptly flying home before the ceremony.)

“I didn’t want ya’ll to call me fat, so I got liposuction,” West said.

It’s shocking West underwent the procedure as his mother, Donda, died one day after undergoing liposuction, a tummy tuck and a breast reduction in November 2007. Kanye wants to use a photo of the surgeon who operated on his mother for his album cover.
