Nephew investigated in Kanye West's mom Donda West's death

Kaynewest A year after Kanye West's mother, Donda West, died shortly after breast augmentation and liposuction, her nephew, Stephan Scoggins, 46, is now under investigation.

A coroner ruled in January that Donda, 58, died of multiple post-op factors, clearing Dr. Jan Adams of responsibility.

Now an investigator with the California Department of Consumer Affairs has issued subpoenas asking individuals "to testify in the matter of the investigation of Stephan Scoggins," a source tells People.com.

According to an autopsy report, a heavily bandaged West was able to walk out of the medical facility after nearly 5 1/2 hours of surgery last November. She returned home, took Vicodin for pain, slept through the night and felt better in the morning.

Later in the day, a source tells People, Scoggins, a registered nurse, left West's home to attend a baby shower and was unreachable when Donda's condition worsened.

According to the autopsy report, West experienced pain, a sore throat and tightening in her chest before collapsing early that evening. A friend at the house called 911 and West was rushed to the emergency room, where she was pronounced dead.

Is this why Kanye West has seemed a bit angry the past few months? He's been arrested twice for violent run-ins with paparazzi. Can't hardly blame him.

I so would not want to be that nephew.

What do you think? Would you have left your aunt's side the day after surgery for a baby shower? For anything?
