DJ AM ate way too much OxyContin

September 2nd, 2009 // 54 Comments

DJ AM’s death is starting to look more like a drug-fueled suicide. Reports are coming in that he had a stomach full of OxyContin, according to People:

Authorities investigating the death of DJ AM have found that he had eight undigested OxyContin pills in his stomach and a ninth in his mouth, a law enforcement source tells PEOPLE.
The finding suggests that DJ AM – real name Adam Goldstein – swallowed the powerful painkillers quickly. “He wanted to die,” says the source, who says the suicide theory is supported by the pills and other evidence. “He was going unconscious when he took the last one. He didn’t even swallow it.”
In addition to the OxyContin, the source says, authorities who entered Goldstein’s New York apartment Aug. 28 found a Valentine’s Day card in the next room from Haley Wood. The pair had recently split. Dated Feb. 14, 2009, the card read, “Thank God you’re in my life. I love you.” Next to the card were six or seven photos of Wood and Goldstein.
“The card was lying on top of his laptops on the coffee table in the living room,” the source says.

All this would make sense except Haley Wood informed Us Weekly that she never broke up with DJ AM and the two were still together:

“Any indication that this horribly tragic accident happened because of a rumored breakup is not only untrue but disgusting. We were very much together at the time of his passing, and I love him very much.”

Well, if she didn’t break up with DJ AM then why did he kill hims- oh, wait. Dammit, Olsen twins…

    Wow… I’ve just realized something: Who cares about some wanna be celebrity asshole who kills himself?

  3. MC

    Soooooo….all of yesterday’s comments are validated that this guy really is/was a douche….what a coward.

  4. doggy

    I think it was suicide under the influence, like driving under the influence. He was so high he thought killing himself sounded like a good idea, which isn’t the same thing as planning it out and leaving a note and all, but it isn’t entirely and accident either. Everyone is always crying suicide or accident, I say it was accidental suicide.

    Anyway all I know for sure was Ashley Olsen was there the whole time, but she just turned sideways so the cops couldn’t see her and then she sliped through the mail slot which is her version of a door anyway.

    It makes me kind of sad to know that even douchebag crackheads have someone who loves them, and yet, I’m still single. Sigh.

  6. sushi

    Did he kill himself for dating her or did he kill himself because all he could get was that fuckpig?

  7. Why is this guy considered a celebrity? He’s some loser DJ for God’s sakes! Loved how he was lying for years about being “clean” LOL

    One more douche bag we don’t have to hear about anymore.

  8. Taylor

    So now his girlfriend says that she did NOT, in fact, dump him, yet, clearly, he was devastated about something….I think she is just in some MAJOR denial…I only hope that Adam is in heaven, where all his troubles are over, but I was taught that people who commit suicide do not go to heaven….It’s like the ultimate slap in God’s face, because he gave us this precious gift of our life…..Anyway, I have a problem with declaring that everyone who takes his/her own life won’t get into heaven, cuz drinking too much, eating too much, smoking – these can also be slow, if unintentional, “suicides”, so WTH…..God bless and forgive you, sweet Adam….

  9. Tammy

    LOL at how she denies the breakup. Talk about trying to weasel out of the guilt. Good job Haley, you killed DJ Am.

    No, seriously, good job, he deserved to die. Now he is in Hell with Michael Jackson and John Denver.

  10. Deacon Jones

    Man, I took an OxyContin for the first time Saturday night and those things are no fucking joke.

    I was still fucked up until 3 or 4 the next day, that shit doesnt get out of your system, just stays there for 24 hours, it sucks. 4 of them could kill a horse, let alone 8

  11. hkp I right in front of you

    so do I understand this right. he was famous for playing records in a really cool way or something? I don’t get it.

    Ugh. someone please block the seekrich.com crap.

  12. Wow. He killed himself? That’s so shitty. Accidental drug overdose was a much more sympathetic case. I am having a hard time not thinking of this guy as a coward now.

    The “Orlando Sucks” shirt isn’t helping either.

  13. ROUGH before dishonor

    That my friend is why I never get envious of no man…

    I saw this guy DJ’ing @ Marquee, he had all the chicks taking pictures with him during sets. Who knew he was tortured inside…

    You forgot Ted Kennedy.

  15. PoisonIvyLeague

    The same thing happens with me and Taco Bell burritos; usually I can get through the first eight but fall asleep with the ninth in my mouth.

  16. susy

    This whole notion of suicide = hell is such bullshit. Maybe God should punish people who seek treatment to extend their lives, after all if your body is sick maybe that’s God’s will of saying you’re dead asshole. I love how people justifying doing every fucking thing they can to extend their lives when their bodies are giving out all the while talking about those magical pearly gates in heaven.

    But back to the topic at hand, I don’t believe this guy was clean for as long as he claims to have been. Mother fucker was into some serious shit. I mean, smoking crack? WTF? I thought only ghetto clowns did that shit.

  17. joe blow

    You know what’s really pathetic about that “Seek Rich” spammer?

    Go to his website and look at the header of the site. It’s a picture of Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey all smiley and cozy with each other.

    Apparently the moron running the site didn’t hear about them GETTING DIVORCED a while back.

    Spammers are losers and morons.

  18. FACE

    Why are we still talking about a DJ? He was just a popular junkie. DJ is not a musical skill and requires almost no talent.

  19. Aunt Jemima

    #24 DJs today only have to hit the “beat match” button on Ableton Live to get the two songs to match up and then hit “Go” for it to start the next song. Wow. Talent? No.

  20. lols

    so hes an emo dj? WAHHHHH a girl doesn’t like me, my pussy hurts now, ill go eat oxycontins and die, fucking waste

  21. GM

    Damn that sucks. I live in LA and must have gone to LAX (his club) about 20 times. Seemed like a really nice guy.

    r.i.p

  22. love is out there

    #5. Have faith. It takes time to find a good one. Just get out there, meet people, give it time, don’t get discouraged by the cows or snobs and don’t settle for less then someone who will treat you the way you deserve to be treated and then treat them just as well in return.

    Believe me it will happen if you don’t give up and you don’t settle. Good luck. A great girl is out there for you, who knows maybe you’ll meet her today!!!

    It took time, but I found the best man and we’ve been married for a long time. Marriage and love can look insufferable because of all the idiots who get it wrong, but when you find someone who you can really trust and who you can love and take care of and know they won’t take advantage of you or take you for granted and who gives it all back in spades it’s pretty sweet.

    Don’t get down on yourself and just believe that you deserve someone awesome and that you will find her!!! Cheers and best of luck!

    P.S. I know this comment is way to sappy for this site, but I like to encourage people to know that they deserve happiness.

    Now back to ragging on dumbass celebs.

  23. Biz Markie

    I bet those pills were floating in a sea of semen, because this guy sucked when he was alive.

  24. WAAAAHHH! I did drugs and was depressed because I used to be fat and was in a plane crash. WAAAAHHH!

  25. MagicFan

    He got what was coming to him for wearing an “Orlando Sucks” tshirt. Although it didn’t really “come TO him”, he did it to himself. Either way, what a loser.

  26. rah! rah!

    He was saddened over the fact that he continuously played bad remixes of Kelly Clarkson and Nickleback (Picklesmack) and, at the same time, wore Depeche Mode t-shirts. That’s a fucking contradiction.

  27. josh

    So “someone” tells People that he took loads of pills and killed himself over his girlfriend, but his girlfriend says they were still together?

    Somebody’s lying.

    Imma wait for the official autopsy report thx.

  28. Rebecca

    They broke up. She is now just trying to use his death as publicity. And if she was his girlfriend when he died, she can play the pity card. Because obviously everybody wants to know how the grieving girlfriend is doing.

  30. I’m no psychologist, but that has got to be the most artificial “I’m okay, peace out” look I’ve seen in a while. That guy was fubar. He was no more at that Lakers rally mentally than an L.A. homeless man asking for change. Sad thing is, anyone close to him could easily see that and should have done something. I’m afraid that man had no true friends and no family that gave two shits about him.

  31. miked

    I didn’t realize that DJ stood for dead junkie…. Who knew.

  32. v

    Like fish said, “well played”

  33. sizzle

    @ 32 Hah! That’s a good one.

    So the world lost another talentless, unattractive, crack-head? I’m sure it’ll keep spinning.

  34. Gwen

    Yeah, I’ll admit, it’s all fun to joke around and all about, “way to make the most of a second chance,” because he watched some people “burn to a crisp,” but…he did, you know?

    Three words: massive survivor guilt.

    I mean, that doesn’t absolve him from everything – there are definitely therapists et al out there that can help – but I don’t think he was a loser. Some people can’t deal with it; that’s all. Shit like this happens every day, it just happened to someone famous this time.

    Still, Fish, absolutely perfect picture to go along with the caption. I totally LOL’d. :)

  35. hmm

    a big fuck you to the lame pieces of shit who take swipes at this guy for all he’s been through..PTSD is real and he probably was dealing with it after watching his friends die..most likely none of you losers has ever even been to a club or listened to a DJ or even talked to a fucking girl in your life..fucking half wit internet nerds

    RIP DJ AM..

  36. susy

    I would be willing to bet they all start coming out of the woodwork that he wasn’t really off drugs the entire time he claimed to be.

  37. finaldestination

    I think death was out to get him just like final destination. you can’t escape that bitch

  38. Capt. Fancypants

    I just want to welcome back all the people who decided to rage quit the fish late last week, and decided that they just can’t quit the internets..

    Hey… It’s ok. We all make mistakes.

    No one here will say they “told you so”.. and we welcome you with open arms.

  39. jizzlobber

    epic lulz. what a faggot.

  40. Rhialto

    All these cases,they only prove that these medications and prescripted drugs are too easy to get.

    I see a good way and reason to cut in the health care budget.

  42. Gando

    Just get rid of tens of thousands of questionable physicians.Saves tens of billions of tax money.

  43. Darth

    He’s a more than average loss for the tax community.

  44. whatdashyte

    Don’t know who this douche-bag was. Don’t care. We have too many pseudo-celebrities in the world. If they were wolves or caribou or something, there’d be hunters out there thinning their numbers. But since humans are supposed to be superior, we have pills and booze.

  45. Dread not

    All this would make sense except Haley Wood informed Us Weekly that she never broke up with DJ AM and the two were still together:

    “Any indication that this horribly tragic accident happened because of a rumored breakup is not only untrue but disgusting. We were very much together at the time of his passing, and I love him very much.”

    Dn: Yeah, people get your facts straight! DJ AM didn’t kill himself because he and Haley broke up! He killed himself because they we’re still together! That bitch must be some kind of serious psycho. I’m just sayin’…

  46. Mama Pinkus

    all you fuckers calling suicides COWARDS – I don’t know whether to feel happy for you that you are clueless about depression or call you what you really are – ignorant unfeeling BASTARDS

  47. Courtyardpigeon

    He was sad because he was 36 and a Djay at a club.

  48. collslee
