BEVERLY HILLS—Kubota Mortuary and the Los Angeles County Crematorium Cemetery is being sued by Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, Dr. Alexander Sinclair. Sinclair alleges that Kubota Mortuary promised to give him half of his late wife Kyoko Yonezawa ashes after she died of stomach cancer on April 11, 2019.

Sinclair paid the facility nearly $7,800 for half of her ashes to be shared between himself and his wife’s parents. The lawsuit filed in court on December 27 indicates that Sinclair only received two ounces of his wife’s ashes; less than 10 percent of his wife’s ashes.

The plastic surgeon is seeking millions of dollars in damages on allegations of breach of contract, fraud, misrepresentation, intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress. Sinclair filed a lawsuit against his late wife’s parents in August 2019 who reside in Japan.

Dr. Alexander Sinclair operates Sinclair Plastic Surgery in Los Angeles with offices in Beverly Hills and Whittier. According to the company’s website, he is a diplomate of the American Society of Plastic Surgery (ASPS), the largest plastic surgery specialty organization in the world. He is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS).

He received his medical degree from Michigan State University’s College of Human Medicine and has been operating in the Los Angeles area for over 30 years.
