Click here to hear the disturbing 911 call made when Kanye West's mother, the late Donda West, stopped breathing and was found unresponsive by family and friends.

It's heartbreaking, especially hearing someone in the background pleading with Donda to "please wake up."

    Low class, this is somthing that should be kept private and not leaked to the press. The woman passed away show some respect.

  18. ick says – reply to this

    Does this really need to be made available online?

    This post should really be taken off. If you wanted to mention her death, then you could've just made a post dedicating respect… It's fucking disgusting that you would post that. Maybe you'll post your mom's 911 call.

  24. Chris says – reply to this


    24

    Take this OFF your site immediately! This is disrepectful and you're mother would be ashamed to know about this. Have some dignity Perez! And be scared that Kayne is going to come kick your ass!

  25. sarah says – reply to this


    25

    this is a new level of tasteless.

  26. Steph says – reply to this


    26

    Posting such a private and sad thing like this is horrible, just really disgusting. I didn't even listen to it.

  27. CNYYSB says – reply to this


    27

    Why is this even necessary??? Seriously, this isn't "celebirty gossip"…I'm sure there is something else that can take the place of this….What the hell is wrong with you, you fat fuck? I hope when someone you love dies, there is someone to do the same thing to you. This happened weeks ago, leave it alone.

  28. Michelle says – reply to this

    I will not listen to a personal tragedy like this. It shouldn't be out there for the public to hear.

    31

    You should be ashamed of yourself for actually posting this, Perez. How completely tactless.

  32. Ell says – reply to this


    32

    so why are you putting it on your site then Perez? if it's so disturbing and heartbreaking.

  33. Toke says – reply to this


    33

    I do not understand the american fetich with listening to other peoples misery… you guys are seriously fucked..

    Yes I read Perez now and then, but why is American peoples lives centered around celebrities lives? I do not understand it…

  34. I LISTEN TO DIRECTIONS! says – reply to this


    34

    Why in the fuck was that person not listening to the 911 operator? That was 5 minutes of wasted time. I would be pissed if that was my mother!

  35. jb says – reply to this


    35

    why are you posting this?

  36. sicko says – reply to this


    36

    How would you like everyone listening if it was your mother.

    That and the fact your new background locks my computer up every time I try look at it make it that much easier to never look at your page again.

    The person on the phone? A stupid ass bitch, I fucking swear. SHE deserves to die. A painful, slow death at that "HUH?" Clean out your fucking ears, you retarded whore! HUH! HUH! God, that shit pisses me off. And the person hyperventilating? She just makes everything worse. Already they're dealing with a very dangerous situation and she can't even get passed her own crap. HUH!
    Fucking idiots.

    Head up and be strong Kanye! You will get through this!

    42

    Its kind of ridiculous that this is being released.

    But saying that, maybe if they had concentrated on what the expert was saying and didn't turn the whole thing into a clusterfuck she could have been saved.

    44

    Ok I usually dont complain about your posts but this one needs to come down. It has no place on a celebrity gossip website - you posted that she had passed - you posted what happened - no one in the world other than her family needs any more info than that. I will not listen to this and neither should anyone else. Stick to lighter fare please.

  45. ruffmama says – reply to this


    45

    Wow. tasteless to post this. BUT it is a good example of how not act when you are calling 911 in an emergency. Shit. That lady on the phone and the idiots there in the room are the ones who killed her, not the dr.

    may Donda West rest in peace…….

  47. Jennie says – reply to this


    47

    Does this really need to be made public perez? When my dad died there was a 911 call too, no one needs to hear that and I would be upset to have people listening to it. It is sad and terrible what happened to this woman, plain and simple. Why drag it on and on and play the call? I agree it is tasteless. I love you perez, but you've gone too far.

  48. fgirl says – reply to this


    48

    Major Bad move posting this, won't even listen to it ouf respect for the deceased. Where's your head at, perez?

  49. Erin says – reply to this


    49

    it's kind of disturbing that they would post that on an entertainment television website. there's nothing entertaining about a woman dying.

  50. WHY? says – reply to this


    50

    is everyone so shock that such things would be posted in such a vile site like this ?
    this is the purpose of this site to literally expose to the world anything about celebrities and that includes even the most private stuff such as this one
    VILE =TASTELESS =THIS SITE it is that simple

  51. Britchick says – reply to this


    51

    What do you gain by releasing this on the site? So you can sympathise with their loss? Get real. At a tragic private time for their family you are intruding on what you have no right to hear. I certainly don't want to listen.

  52. hugo says – reply to this


    52

    please remove this, show some respect for kanye and his family

  53. GOD says – reply to this


    53

    Perez, this is GOD writing.
    You fat fuck, I didn´t listen to it, but shit Perez, you crossed a fucking line. This is supposed to be a celebrity blog, she ain´t a celebrity. I thought you had respect for Kanye. I´ll make sure he finds out about this. He is going to be fucking pissed at you, make sure to watch your back homes. Take this post down now, stupid fat non latino fuck.
    I still love you though.

    Re: AmANDA

    Why did the operator piss you off? His job is to get information and try to assist the sick person via the person on the phone. If the person on the phone is not listening to what he is saying, it could be deadly. I can only imagine how terrible it is to be in that situation and be panic stricken, but a 911 person is trained to get the pertinent information and render aid. When the people on the other end of the phone aren't listening, he has to try to get them to listen and they weren't. I hope this is a lesson to people that 911 also is trained to help you help the person who is sick, not just to send the ambulance. They are trained to tell you what to do, so you have to listen to them carefully. I'm sure it was horrible for all involved and I fell badly for them, but don't get on 911's case when they are just trying to help.

    I know this was/is an important story of 2007, but I'm not with listening to the final moments of this woman's life. It was in bad taste to post this recording and I won't listen to it. Though Kayne is a celebrity and lives a public life, I feel he and his family still have rights to the same privacy and respect we'd give anyone else dealing with the loss of a loved one. Exploiting the death of anyone is wrong. Show some respect.

    56

    PEREZ-

    REMOVE THIS IMMEDIATELY! DO NOT EXPOLIT THE DEATH OF KANYE'S MOTHER!

    This has got to end it is so disrespectufl and distaseful shows like Extra and ET!

    It is WRONG to post this. Very tasteless.

  60. Kevifabulous says – reply to this


    60

    It's so "heartbreaking" that you don't have the decency to not post it?

    This someone's final last moments and you're capitalizing on it by posting it on your website?

    This is beyond typical Perez pathetic antics, this is downright disgusting.

  61. everybody says – reply to this


    61

    Take this off your blog, Perez.

  62. dee says – reply to this


    62

    Enough. I wouldn't listen to this. Leave this family alone.

  63. Makes me Sad says – reply to this


    63

    I'm so sorry to have listened…but I've got to wonder if for those wasted first 5 minutes…if they would have listened to the damn operator if she could've have a chance…i heard that if you do cpr for atleast 5 minutes there's a greater chance when the paramedics get there….

    That is some funny stuff. Hey Kanye, can you buy your mamma back from the dead bitch ?

    HA HA

  67. jdthemomz says – reply to this


    67

    why are people pissed at you? extra posted it. STUPID PEOPLE!! sort of like the idiots making the phone call who must be retarded. if i were the dispatcher i would've hung up on those morons.

  68. hrc says – reply to this


    68

    PEREZ!!!! Holy SHIT!!! You are FUCKIN' FUCKED UP FOR POSTING THIS. Actually you probably didn't listen to it first cause you're such a lazy fuck (you can't even proofread your posts for spelling). Your site used to be fresh and fun. Now you just suck you pansy-ass

  69. Tina says – reply to this


    69

    Why would you post this?? It is not our place to listen to that. It's really crossing the line.

    this is sick…show some friggin class…this is a persons mother!

  71. Ali says – reply to this


    71

    Really disappointing that you'd post this on your site - how disrespectful. Her death was very tragic and I'm sure the 911 call is not something Kanye wants the world to hear. :(

  72. Whatever says – reply to this


    72

    Sorry but maybe if the lady on the phone would have listened to what the operator was trying to say initially she may have got more air to her. It was a complete CLUSTER FUCK! I realize it's a horrific stressful time, but you have to get it together and take control.

  73. Bettybetty says – reply to this


    73

    That chick on the phone was no help whatsoever. All that time wasted.

  74. pp says – reply to this


    74

    omg, i cant believe how they werent even listening to the operator at all. WTF

  75. yo mama says – reply to this


    75

    Why would you post this? Show some RESPECT to Kanye and his family. I REFUSE to listen to this and so should everyone else. Its an utter shame that you would even think about posting this. Please take it down, this ordeal has been publicized enough!

    79

    Perez, I swear to GOD, fucking take this shit off, you insincere, fuck! How could you, what's great about this? Tell all of the other media whores to take this shit off, too. How could you? How could you, How could you? You need to come better, or don't come at all, I swear.

    Oh, and the chick saying, "huh? , huh"? and the one hyperventalating? What the fuck, hold it together…what if them paying attention and breathing life into this woman could have saved her? Sheesh!

    Props to the 911 operator! It takes a cool level-headed person to work under that kind of diress and stress.
    RIP Mz. West.

    That's not something to be made public! It's actually pretty sick! I'm sorry Kayne it's not cool in the slightest! Media go figure right!

  85. madMad says – reply to this


    85

    Perez why would you post this? I feel like you're a decent enough guy to know that it's disrespectful to her and the family. I don't know about you, but if it were my mother's 9-1-1 tape, regardless of whether everyone were already aware of the outcome, I would want that information kept to myself. I realize it's public record, but come on. RIP mama West

    this is particularly disrespectful not only to kanye but also his mother who was not associated with the media/paparazzi world your website is based on.

  89. s says – reply to this


    89

    You are such a hateful, nasty piece of low-rent shit. Hopefully, someone will kill your mother and we can laugh at it, fat fuck. Do you know no boundaries? You will get your comeuppance and it will be sweet. Karma's a bitch, bitch!

    Hi Perez.
    Why? I'm a french guy and i come to your website every day looking for fun news. What's that?
    It's private.
    It's a shame! Thinks to West Family's!
    To finish, i repeat a good sentence from Croatian Beautiful : "I thought you were better than this, Perez".
    Bye

  97. Rachael says – reply to this


    97

    Perez, not necessary! This is certainly an invasion of privacy on the West family. I don't think we should condone the availability of this phone call at all! Take this down!

  98. Amy says – reply to this


    98

    that is sad

  99. tasteless says – reply to this


    99

    Perez, I'm sorry but this is very tasteless! This is another human being's mother….this should have stayed private. You have crossed the line many times but this is a new low…Since when is something like this "entertainment." Would you want EVERYONE to hear others trying to save YOUR mother's life after she was already gone? Please take it off of the site….

  100. Erica says – reply to this


    100

    this gave me a headache just listening to it. I give credit to the operator for not hanging up on that stupid woman.
