DJ AM Distraught Over Breakup in Days Before Death

By: Celebuzz / August 29, 2009

DJ AM (aka Adam Goldstein) was in a fragile emotional state in the weeks prior to his death on Friday, People magazine reports.

A source tells the magazine that a split with his girlfriend, Hayley Wood, had left him distraught and led him to become more isolated.

“She ended it, and he didn’t want it to end,” the source says. “The breakup hurt him. He hadn’t been in a good place lately. For the past week, he wasn’t really around, he was keeping to himself, and he was blowing people off.”

Goldstein was found dead in his New York City apartment on Friday afternoon, after a concerned friend dropped by to check in on him and called 911 after receiving no response. Police broke the door down and found Goldstein’s body with drug paraphernalia nearby.
