According to a number of news sources, Adam “DJ AM” Goldstein was found dead in his New York City apartment on Friday.
Star Magazine reports a rep for the deejay said “The circumstances surrounding his death are unclear” but the mag expects it is “a drug-related death.”
Formerly the beau of Nicole Richie, DJ AM narrowly avoided death last September after a plan he shared with Blink 182’s drummer Travis Barker crashed.
Twitter is abuzz with condolences from celebrities and beyond. A source tells Star that Richie is very distraught and has been crying nonstop since the news was broken to her.
Rest in peace, DJ AM!
