I just found out about DJ AM Adam Goldstein dying. I am in shock. What on earth is happening? This has got to be the worst year for celebrity deaths, you think?
So, in case you are like me and haven't heard the news: DJ AM's body was discovered around at 5:27 PM ET yesterday in his apartment in NYC. Police found drug paraphernalia and prescription pill bottles. A bag of crack was found around his groin area and a glass "crack pipe" was found in his bedroom. The pill bottles were found in the kitchen.
He was an wickedly talented DJ, who spun records at many Hollywood clubs and parties, both private and for the public. The Palms Casino Resort paid tribute to DJ AM by showing this on their resort. It is a nice tribute, but it's a shame it has to be done at all!
He used to date Mandy Moore and was at one time engaged to Nicole Richie. It is rumored that he was devastated about the recent breakup with his girlfriend.
He had joined up with drummer Travis Barker of Blink-182 to make the group trvsdjam. They were touring in September of 2008 and luckily they both survived a bad plane crash while returning from a show in South Carolina, that killed 2 of their good friends. Not much has been written since that crash until now.
Mandy Moore, who used to date DJ AM, gave this statement: "I am absolutely heartbroken. For those of us lucky enough to have known him, Adam radiated a contagious exuberance for life and also personified the very definition of a true friend. To say that he will be missed beyond words is an understatement. My heart goes out to his loved ones."
I wonder what Nicole Ritchie is thinking?? Another senseless drug induced young death. Will they ever learn???
