Kanye West Tweets Sweet Birthday Wishes for His Late Mom Donda

Kanye West tweeted an emotional birthday message to his late mother, Donda West, on her birthday yesterday (July 12, 2016).

Mentioning hiss 3-year-old daughter with Kim KardashianNorth West, he wrote: “Nori asked if the airplane could take her to heaven to see you for your birthday, I love you mom.”

It would have been Donda’s 67th birthday.

West tragically passed away in 2007 a day after receiving plastic surgery. Her official cause of death was due to “coronary artery disease and multiple post-operative factors due to or as a consequence of liposuction and mammoplasty.”

Kanye said in an interview with magazine last June that he blames himself for her death. “My mom. 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.”

She ultimately inspired his creative content company DONDA.
