Kanye's Mom Didn't Have Son's Jack

4/18/2008 8:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kanye West has filed legal papers in the estate of his mom, Donda, who tragically died after a plastic surgery procedure last November.
Read the docs
In the legal papers, filed today in Los Angeles County Superior Court, Donda's assets are listed at $150,000. Interesting, since Donda worked as Kanye's manager.

Donda died without a will. Kanye is the sole beneficiary, and has asked that family friend Shawn Gee, a music industry exec, be named as the co-administrator of the estate.

I'm sure he was taking care of her with everything she wanted and needed, so $150k probably isn't very little

There must be offshore monies and property....interesting. With an estate worth $150,000 (pocket change to him) why would he name someone else co-administrator of her estate?

His mother was gorgeous and didn't need anything. My heart goes out to those who loved her and miss her. I hope Kanye goes after that so-called "doctor" and gets a gazillion and gets that "doctor" behind bars.

Who cares how much her estate was worth? Kanye was her only child. I'm sure he took care of his mother. He probably bought the house she lived in and all of her cars and possessions. Alot of these people tie up their assets in corporations and foundations and other legal entities for tax purposes. She and Kanye probably had joint ownership of some of these and therefore those would not be considered in her estate. I'm sure she didn't want for anything. And it's probably legal protocol to name someone else as the co-administrator.

She didn't need all that much because I don't doubt for a second Kanye took very good care of his mother while she was here.

WELL...... DID SHE NOT JUST SPEND A FEW HUNDRED THOUSAND ON PLASTIC SURGERY? WHO KNOWS WHAT/WHERE HER MONIES ARE. sHE MAY HAVE THEM PROTECTED UNDER OTHER ACCOUNTS AS WELL, FOR BETTER TAX BRACKETS, ETC.

@PoiseProtection Idiot that was uncalled for if he's so untalented why did he have the 2nd best selling album of 2007?? why did he win so many grammies?? He's a very talented person who makes his own music and even makes a fortune making beats for other people. Kanye West is unlike many other rappers and have his own style and don't rap about stupid drugs,violence,etc. There isn't may artists like him. Also, idiot his mother lived in a multimillion dollar house drived a Bently(200,000) and had all this expensive jewelry. Kanye West loved his mother and bought her everything she needed. If you listened to any of his music he mentions his mother several times and always declare himself a mommas boy. He even had a song on his 2nd album called hey momma. Also, he even said on Tyra with his mom on the show that he bought her a house and she came out with a book called raising Kayne. They had the closet bond and that devastated Kanye.

That may be all she had in this country. The rest is probably in offshore accounts just like Kayne probably has money stored in accounts around the world.
