DJ AM Dead of Apparent Drug Overdose

Aug 29th, 2009

Adam Goldstein, aka DJ AM, was found dead Friday evening at approximately 5pm. The popular DJ’s breakup from his girlfriend, Hayley Wood, last week left him “completely devastated.” He was also said to be suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder following the deadly plane crash that he and Travis Barker survived last September.

TMZ is reporting that a friend went to his apartment, after not being able to get a hold of the DJ for several days. With no answer at the door, they contacted the police and gained entrance, only to find his body “face down, shirtless and in sweatpants.” He was pronounced dead on the scene at 6pm.

“A law enforcement source on the scene [says] a glass ‘crack pipe’ was found in his bedroom, [and] pill bottles were found in the kitchen.” (source)

The DJ, and former boyfriend of Mandy Moore and Nicole Richie, was said to be sober for over nine years.

This tragic news comes just 11 months after Goldstein and musician Travis Barker survived a deadly plane crash in South Carolina, which claimed four lives. He was just 36 years old.
