DJ AM Found Dead in NY Apartment

According to New York Daily News, Adam Goldstein, better known by his moniker "DJ AM" was found dead Friday in his SoHo apartment. The 36 year old disc jockey and celebrity was found amidst drug paraphernalia at around 5:20 PM Friday evening.

A little under a year ago, he was involved in a near death experience when a plane he was a passenger in skidded off the runway in South Carolina, then burst into flames. Four were killed in that accident, with Goldstein escaping with severe burns. Travis Barker of Blink-182 fame was also in the crash and escaped alive.

Goldstein apparently battled drug addiction, obesity and depression as a youngster, and had spent time in rehab to help overcome his addiction. He's also well known for dating Nicole Richie and becoming engaged to her in 2005, before they broke things off months later. Goldstein was also linked to dating Mandy Moore, former Miss USA Tara Conner and supermodel Jessica Stam.

Travis Barker's ex-wife Shana Moakler sent her thoughts out on Goldstein's passing via Twitter:

"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."
