yeah, i’m late posting this, but i must give my respect. Adam Goldstein, AKA DJ AM, 36, was found dead of an apparent drug overdose in his New York apartment on Friday night…
DJ AM was a world-renowned DJ, playing high-end parties all over Hollywood and beyond. His career was surely boosted by the rumors of all the Hollywood ladies he has been linked to, including Nicole Richie and Mandy Moore.
Paramedics had to break down the door to his Manhattan apartment before they found his body at about 5:20 p.m., a law enforcement official told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity. There was no evidence of foul play, the official said.
Goldstein had talked openly about past addictions to crack cocaine, Ecstasy and other drugs, but he claimed he had been drug-free for years. A law enforcement official told The Associated Press that police found a crack pipe and prescription pills in the apartment where they discovered DJ AM’s body Friday evening. The official spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the investigation was ongoing.
Goldstein died nearly a year after surviving a South Carolina plane crash that killed four people and seriously injured rock musician Travis Barker.
In September of 2008, Goldstein and Barker were seriously burned escaping the plane crash. The pair had planned to perform together for the first time since the crash at an event in Los Angeles on New Year’s Eve.
A friend of DJ AM told FOXNews.com that Goldstien “has been spiraling out of control since the plane crash. He was taking so many painkillers for his injuries, he slowly got hooked on them.
