DJ AM has passed away. The events surrounding AM’s death are currently unconfirmed, but it’s suspected that he died due to an apparent drug overdose. The New York Post reported the discovery of drug paraphernalia at the scene, and TMZ has released a report claiming his death was due to a mixture of anti-anxiety medication and crack cocaine. The report claims AM had started taking the anti-anxiety medication to calm his fear of flying after he and Travis Barker survived a near fatal plane crash last year.
AM’s body was discovered in his Manhattan apartment.
After attempting to reach him, a friend reportedly called police who found AM dead. Hauntingly, his last twitter appeared to foresee his tragic fate saying, “New York, New York big City of dreams, but everything in new york ain’t always what it seems.”
The 36-year-old DJ, also known by the name Adam Goldstein, was most notably known for dating reality TV star Nicole Richie & escaping a plane crash with friend and fellow musician Travis Barker last year. DJ AM was an incredible talent and he will be missed by all. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends at this difficult time.
