DJ AM On His Way To Rehab Before Death

| Filed under: DJ A.M.


Friends close to DJ AM have told officials that the day before his death, he had announced he would be going to rehab, as he had relapsed and was heavily using drugs.

The insiders told investigators that on the day before his death, his West Coast manager and recovery sponsor flew to NYC to see DJ AM (aka Adam Goldstein) to discuss his erratic behavior in the previous weeks. When they arrived at his apartment, DJ AM only let his sponsor inside.

That's when, to the horror of his friend, DJ AM "lit up a crack pipe and popped pills" right in front of him.

From there, he promised his manager and sponsor that after his gig in Las Vegas last Friday, he would check himself into a rehab in California. But, as we know, he never made it to that performance as he was found dead the next day.

Though the cause of death won't be determined for a few more weeks, it is sad to think that if it was drugs that killed him, he was on his way to salvation, but was just too late.

Very sad.

    Heres a free tip people; If you abuse drugs you could die! No real news here, sounds pretty typical, celebrity dies before rehab…such a loss…so sad…what go you think is supposed to happen when you abuse drugs in this manner?

    GIVE ME A BREAK!! These Hollywood stars and their drugs. Don't they have anything better to do than to shoot up, snort up or down bills??? Don't tell me it was "depression" or "stress" that made him do it!!!! I deal with depression and stress everyday as well but I'm not using, I deal with life the old fashion way, live it and move on!!!! He had a great career, money and lifestyle only to blow it all up with drugs, classic!!!! Dumbass!!!!!!!!

    Only Jesus Christ can save you from drugs and give you salvation!

  12. 12

    good. too little too late. and we all win by never after having to hear his retarded name once he's fertilizer in a few days. maybe his body will decompose, and help grow the earth's first STUPID TREE. then mario can sit under it and suck tranny cock

  13. 13

    Of course he relapsed. I hope nobody thought the man OD'd the first time using since he quit.

    Re: CurlEgirl08 – I couldn't agree more.

  16. YUCK says – reply to this


    Re: Brainbug – I second that, I cant even bring myself to care about this loser. he lost his battle against himself. I dont feel sorry for him. fuck you pig vomit.

  17. 17

    honestly i felt really sad about the fact he'd died so young, but after this, hell no. a fucking idiot would know that if you abuse drugs in such a way you can't expect to live. it's still a loss the music industry and all but he shouldn't of been so stupid to do something like this when he'd been given a second chance at life and he fucked up.

  18. 18

    QUESTION! Is it his sponsors fault he died the same way it is the doctors fault that MJ is dead?

    … Just sayin'

    Re: barf shit – You should run for President, I wold vote for you

  20. 20

    seriously, who cares? all i knew about this guy was he used to be a fat ass and he dated nichole richie. and then he was supposed to die but "The Final Destination" got his ass! You cant cheat death!

  21. 21

    That is so sad!

  22. 22




    ….so some vinyl spinnin' dude ODs. So what?


    I mean, who the hell is…or was…the guy anyway?


    Why are we supposed to stop the world just because some club dude chose to fry himself to death?


    Didn't we all have enough of the over-attention by the media of FrankenJacko? Now this twit?!





  23. 23

    how come Nicole Ritchie hasn't made a statement yet? She was engaged to DJ. If Mandy Moore can make a statement, Nicole definitely should.

  24. 24

    Crack IS Wack…..Dumbass.

  25. 25

  26. 26

    It's really sad.

  27. 27

    drugs ruin life… dj am fought a hard battle.

  28. 28

    Who fucking cares? His only claim to fame is that he dated Nicole Richie once upon a time..he's a nobody! Soldiers die in Iraq and Afghanistan every day, I don't see many celebrities giving a hoot about them!!

    Re: ellebunny – ANSWER- no, it is not. you're a moron.

  31. 31

    Re: barf shit – disrespectful bastard.

  32. 32

    He played records and did drugs. Get over it. People act like he actually did something important.

  33. 33

    Re: ladygagaisalovelyweeTHING – oh you messer hahahaha

  34. 34

    yeah, it is VERY sad. especially considering we losers like LaLohan get to live thru extreme drug use.

  35. 35

    So in other words, he knew he was screwing up, kept doing it and put partying and DJing ahead of it… am I supposed to be sad?

  36. 36

    Re: PinkLollipop



    …………………………….. BINGO!! ……………………………



  37. 37

    No one cares when drug addicts and shitty DJs die

  38. 38

    Talk is easy. He wouldn't have gone. zzz.

  39. 39

    Smart move to leave him alone, guys. Brilliant!

    That said, he did it to himself. He did it to himself. Again, if he couldn't handle the pressures of bring a "celebrity d.j." —- well, then he couldn't handle much. Kinda beyond pathetic. Just lame-ass loserville.

  40. 40

    GMAFB! they act like this guy was actually relevant? he was heeb dj that played songs he downloaded to his mac for a bunch of people, thats it end of story.

  42. 42

    omg soo sad…i really liked him..i found his passing more devastating than michael jackson's…1 day too late, rest in peace

  43. 43

    Re: Aquarius71 – you know fucking people have different ways to deal with shit. so how bout shut the fuck up and realize not everyone is like YOU, k?

  44. 44

    it looks like there's enough drama there for a movie of the week. Lets see: abusive father who turned out to be gay, drug addict, obesity, gastric bypass, tummy tuck and tit lift, almost fatal plane crash, relapse, drug binge that ended in overdose and death.

  45. 45

    Re: MICHIEZ – Damn, someone is stressed….go snort your powder or better yet, go get a needle and have at it, you fucking druggie!!!!

  46. 46

    Re: Aquarius71 – yea cause thats what i do. i lost 3 friends from drugs so fuck you. people choose wrong ways to deal with shit. and dont judge cause you think your so much better.

  47. 47

    Re: imsoregistered – No one expects 'sadness' from you….only righteous indignation.

  48. 48

    Do not ever wait for rehab. It's never a good idea, people alwasy say "I'm going to cut down before I go, I need to talk to so and so, I need to take care of some things first." Those things can wait! He wanted to fulfil his gig in Vegas and now he will never play another gig.

  49. 49

    Maybe he just really really wanted to produce Michael 's next album.

  50. 50

    How long til the media is blaming someone other then AM for his death? The guy was a drugged, ODed and died. Big fucking deal.
    Just like Michael, IT WAS HIS FAULT!

  51. 51

    Re: 29 – It was >>wait for it

  52. 52

    RIP…poor guy, at least he's now free from the hell that is addiction

  53. 53

    Sad is someone dying from a disease they didn't ask for or an unexpected accident. He chose this way.

  54. 54

    I think the media is backtracking to make it look like an accident now instead of suicide. He didn't leave a note so it will be written off as an accident. No one wants to ruin his ex's life by blaming her for what he did. I still think he knew what he was doing. RIP, poor depressed guy. You tried your best.

  55. 55

    Re: MimiBr – you know addiction is a disease eh?

  56. 56

    Re: MICHIEZ – if you lost 3 friends from drugs and didn't learn anything from that then "your stupid." As far as judging, I maybe judging but aren't you doing the same with judging me for not doing drugs??? Please if your going to judge someone why not judge your friends and look beyond their friendship or lack of and LEARN a lesson from them and DON'T DO DRUGS!!!! I lost a brother to a drunk driver, do you think I drink, NOPE don't do that either. I use to smoke cigarettes but do I do it anymore, NOPE quit that too after watching my sister battle breast cancer, so judge "yes I do" but I have my reasons……what are yours???? Educate yourself, you don't need drugs to have a good time, you don't need drugs to get rid of depression or stress cuz guess what "it will be there when you come down from your high" no matter what your problems maybe they aren't going away until you deal with them head on and then move on to the next task at hand.

  57. 57

    the rehab story is a good PR tactic … last time he was gonna use and then rehab … love how the story comes out now …. it's sad that he had no control, …

  58. 58

    This was an absolute tragedy and it is very unfortunate that more people are not showing compassion. Yes he is/was a addict but if you know anything about addiction then you know that what he had/has is a very serious Disease and does not make him a bad person or weak, in fact from all I've read and heard he was doing what a person recovery should be doing ….helping other addicts. What have you done lately for another?? People should be angry at/with the disease not the person……And please don't get me wrong I am all about personal responsibility and from what it sounds like so was HE. My prayers truly go out to all of his many friends and family .

  59. 59

    So sad - it was a cry for help when he lit up the crack pipe right in front of his sponsor. Drugs suck - I don't know why people think that shit is cool. I mean, marijuana is OK ( I recently smoked it for the first time) because it won't kill ya like pills and crack and meth will! Prescription pills are the devil!!!

  60. 60

    Just cause you had the chance to "meet" with him does not make it SAD! If you can poke fun at Heigl for smoking and setting a bad example, here's a perfect one! I met him too, was not impressed then, not impressed now BUT i'm hugely impressed at how good YOU are at mikling this story to have something to tweet about!

  61. 61

    Re: Aquarius71 – very true

  62. 62

    RIP wish you could have made it. No worries now! Just go with the Angels!!

  63. 63

    how very unfortunate. why didnt his friend stop him????

  64. 64

    Re: Aquarius71 – wtf did i ever mention once i do drugs u moron. lol

  65. 65

    Yah Yah Yah… on his way to salvation…just wanted to fly a little higher one last time!

    Drugs are BAD. Enough said. I had major abdominal surgery a few months ago and was given Oxycodone afterwards for the pain. Found myself going back for a few more perscriptions than was really necsessary. 3 weeks ago I ran out and went through horrific withdrawals. Since then I have informed myself and discovered that it's really common for people to get addicted then go to heroin or relapse on past addictions. Sounds like that's may be what happened to DJ AM. People taking this medication need to be monitored, it's obvious from everything I've seen and read. You can't rely on the self control or judgement of someone on narcotic medication. Michael Jackson and Heath Ledger seem to have suffered the same fate. Who's next?

    Re: ellebunny

    unless AM was injected by someone else then this is SOOO different

  68. 68

    truly an unfortunate loss - i absolutely adore (yes, i still adore) dj am and all his talent. he seemed like such a humble and beautiful spirit. it's truly heartbreaking to hear this devastating news. if this happened to a dear friend or relative of yours, you certainly wouldn't say all that SH*(&. You'd tell people to F OFF. SO F OFF, as*holes.

    My heart goes out to DJAM, his family and friends. AM will certainly be missed.

  69. 69

    I don't understand how he can be dead and Amy Winehouse is still alive!
