DJ AM Dies

Adam Goldstein -- better known as DJ AM -- has died. He was 36.

According to TMZ, he was found in his New York City apartment around 5 pm after not being seen or heard from in days. After a friend went to check in on him and was met with no response, he called the police. The police then broke down the door and found DJ's body.

The website also states that drug paraphernalia was found at the scene. In a 2008 interview with Glamour, Adam opened up about his past demons -- including an addiction to food, drugs, alcohol and a failed suicide attempt. He just recently finished shooting a mini-series for MTV about drug addiction, in which he also spoke of his past troubles.

As many will remember, DJ AM and Travis Barker were in a plane crash in September 2008. They were the only survivors.

Minutes after the news of his death broke, Shanna Moakler -- Travis' ex -- twittered: "My deepest condolences for DJ AM, you were a great artist and will be severely missed. My thoughts and Prayers to his family and friends."

Leave your condolences for Adam's friends and family below.
