DJ AM 36, Adam Goldstein Found Dead; Possible Drug Overdose
DJ AM Last Words on Twitter: New York, New York. Big city of dreams, but everything in New York ain’t always what it seems.
Rest In Peace. DJ Am (36) one of the most sought after DJs, and ex-boyfriend of Nicole Richie was found dead shirtless in his Manhattan apartment at 5:20 pm. After responding to a call from roommate, cops had to breakdown the door to enter, only to find DJ AM listless with a crack pipe and prescription drugs nearby.
This is such a tragic way to die considering he and close friend, Travis Barker, just survived a plane crash last year. It’s no secret that DJ Am had been battling addiction over the years, but it’s just sad to see him leave like this. I bet the painkillers were a result of the plane crash and it just enabled the addiction. So Sad!
