Unhappy DJ AM ( Nicole Richie's Ex ) Dead at age 36 from Drug Overdose

http://www.tmz.com/


DJ AM was found dead of an apparent drug overdose inside his Manhattan apartment Friday, sources said.

The 36-year-old celebrity spinner, whose real name is Adam Goldstein, was discovered surrounded by drug paraphernalia inside his $2 million Tribeca pad about 5:20 p.m., sources said.

Less than a year ago, Goldstein narrowly escaped death when a plane he was riding in skidded off of a South Carolina runway and burst into flames.

Four people were killed. Goldstein, who rose to stardom after he began dating Nicole Richie, suffered severe burns but escaped alive.

Former Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker also survived the crash.

"My deepest condolences for DJ AM," Barker's ex-wife, former Playboy playmate Shanna Moakler wrote in a Twitter feed. "You were a great artist and will be severely missed. My thoughts and prayers to his family and friends."

Goldstein was slated to star in a intervention-style MTV reality show, helping teens break their drug addictions.

Born in Philadelphia, Goldstein battled drug addiction, obesity and depression as a youngster.

He landed in rehab and after beating his drug problem, got gastric bypass surgery.

Goldstein's relationship with Richie was up and down. They were engaged in 2005. But a few months later, the couple broke off the engagement.

Goldstein subsequently dated a number of Hollywood hotties, including Mandy Moore, supermodel Jessica Stam and former Miss USA Tara Conner.

I'm perplexed as to why people even know who this is.

sad for the family.

i knew something was wrong with him (and travis) when they decided to sue the estates of the families of the pilots in the crash last year... drugs hitting the brain too hard

Maybe someone is perplexed because you know who Jill Craybas is.

Always bad when somebody dies, the media just makes it worse by making a big deal about it.

Ditto on wasting his 2nd chance on life.

Re: DJ AM ( Nicole Richie's Ex ) Dead at age 36 from Drug Overdose

That's really strange. I was just looking at his billboard yesterday on my way to get a tan in Atlantic City.
He was coming to one of the casinos and I remember saying to myself, I really want to see his show.
I really like to support my Philly natives.

I guess I won't get that opportunity now.
RIP DJ AM.

The interesting thing is that Nicole Richie is really not a bad singer (when you consider Paris Hilton supposedly being one).
Dandelions is one of my favorite songs. It's surprisingly deep from someone who I expect to be so shallow.
They really could have been a good team if they stuck it out.

You'd think after nearly missing death he'd stop with the hard drugs. Stupid stupid.
RIP
