DJ AM Died

[SinglePic not found]

I have somebody very impatient waiting for me in the next room, and now she’s standing here staring at me, but I’m getting texted like a call girl to let me know that DJ AM died. Ok, you can stop texting me now. Thanks. TMZ reports:

Sources tell TMZ prescription pill bottles were found near DJ AM’s body this afternoon. We’re told his body was found at around 5 PM at his apartment in New York City — he was shirtless and wearing sweatpants. He was face down.

UPDATE 10:33 PM ET: Crime scene investigators just entered the apartment with evidence bags.

UPDATE 9:15 PM ET: Law enforcement sources say the call came in at 5:24 PM — the FDNY responded at 5:27 PM. We’re told DJ AM was pronounced dead on the scene at 6:00 PM.

UPDATE 8:35 PM ET: A law enforcement source on scene tells TMZ a glass “crack pipe” was found in his bedroom. The pill bottles were found in the kitchen.

UPDATE 8:10 PM ET: Sources say a pipe commonly used to smoke drugs was also found inside the bedroom.

UPDATE 7:51 PM ET: We’re told his body has not been removed from the apartment.


Sources tell TMZ DJ AM had been “completely devastated” over a recent breakup with his girlfriend, Hayley Wood. We’re told they split within the last week — she was the one who called off their relationship. We’re also told he was having a very hard time dealing with post-traumatic stress from the plane crash he survived in September of last year.

Whatever, some DJ killed himself over some bitch and because he survived a plane crash. I saw a dead spider in my building’s hallway tonight, too. I don’t know what that has to do with DJ AM besides my emotional reaction being the exact same.

DJ AM is Suing Now

On September 18th of last year, DJ AM (Adam Goldstein) and former Blink 182 drummer, Travis Barker were the sole survivors of a Learjet crash in South Carolina that left four people dead. Goldstein and Barker both suffered burns and were listed in critical condition. Somebody apparently has to pay for that. TMZ reports:

The way it breaks down, DJ AM wants at least $10 mil in damages for medical bills, lost earnings and profits and other economic damages. And he wants another $10 mil for mental and physical pain and suffering and other “non-economic losses.”

DJ AM gets points I guess for being the last one to sue the company that booked the jet (Travis Barker and the family of the other victims have already filed lawsuits), but crashing and being burned alive is one of possible scenarios when you decide to travel in a giant floating metal tube filled with gasoline. Sometimes shit goes wrong. That’s why I only travel by winged unicorn or dragon. They have much more reliable landing gear.

DJ AM used to date Mandy Moore:

Travis Barker and DJ AM Will Be Fine

As you may have already heard, former Blink 182 drummer, Travis Barker, and DJ AM were the only survivors of a Learjet crash in South Carolina on Friday night. They are both in critical condition in a local burn ward. The plane, which was headed to California after a concert in Columbia, crashed shortly after take off. Chris Baker, 29, Charles Still, 25, Sarah Lemmon, 31, James Bland, 52, all died at the scene. The cause of the wreck is currently under investigation. Yahoo! News reports:

Former Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker and celebrity disc jockey DJ AM are expected to fully recover from burns they suffered in a fiery South Carolina jet crash that killed the other four people aboard, one of their doctors said Sunday. Dr. Fred Mullins, medical director of the Joseph M. Still Burn Center, said the two suffered second- and third-degree burns but had no other injuries from the crash that one witness described as a fireball shooting across a highway. “Anybody who can survive a plane crash is pretty lucky,” Mullins told reporters during a news conference Sunday morning. Barker was burned on his torso and lower body and DJ AM, whose real name is Adam Goldstein, was burned on an arm and a portion of his scalp, according to a statement from the musicians’ families released by the hospital. Mullins declined to discuss specific recovery times for the men, but said such injuries can take a year to fully heal. Both men are still in critical but stable condition, he said.”

Let’s take a moment to say we hope these guys pull through. I can understand how a plane crash can make you rethink a lot of things in your life. When I kept crashing in Air Combat, I really thought about if I should get a new controller for my PlayStation.
