Celebrity turntablist DJ AM checked out of this world last Friday by swallowing a handful of narcotic painkillers, according to a law enforcement source.

The source told People magazine that the popular DJ, real name Adam Goldstein, had one OxyContin pill still in his mouth when his body was found by police around 5 p.m. Friday in his SoHo walk up.

An empty bottle of prescription OxyContin was found nearby. Crack cocaine and drug paraphernalia were found strewn about his body.

According to an autopsy conducted Saturday, eight partially digested and undigested Oxycontin pills were found in his stomach.

"He wanted to die," the source said. "He was going unconscious when he took the last one. He didn't even swallow it."

The source said Goldstein "smoked a lot of crack, barricaded the doors and killed himself." Read more...

    This is very sad. May his soul RIP!!

  • pinky2083

    Wow.. his life must have been pretty messed up to wanna do that. I don't care how bad things get for me, I could never kill myself.

  • melinla

    This story almost made me cry trying to imagine what it must feel like to live through a plane crash - lose so many people close (literally) to you and still have no will to live. My heart hurts for him. To be so famous...and still feel so alone. R.I.P. if that's possible after committing suicide...

  • iscream

    I heard this story this morning. 8 in his belly and one still in his mouth.

    I wish he could've found the beauty in living. Almost reminds me of the Final Destination films.

  • ELove

    Drug-addict dies from Drug-overdose ...
    And lets not forget he was a drug-addict BEFORE the crash

    Can you really care about someone WHO doesn't care about them-self ???


    This is sad. It's unfortunate he couldn't manage to get his soul right.

  • Daisy

    If I am not mistaken young black males have the highest sucide rates in the country now. I remember seeing a special on that a few years back. So sad.

    Did my pic change?

  • miamore73

    Now E I have to say I understand your point. But I still find it sad that someone felt so hopeless.

    I bet Nicole and her family are happy she got away from him. I'm sure she's saddened by the news but still.

  • miamore73

    Yeah Daisy new pic.

    Did anyone see the Midnight Live show last week after RHWOA. I guess people in Inglewood aren't the only ones that know about Crack. I soo took offense to that.

  • pinky2083

    Really Daisy? I find that so hard to believe. I never really hear too much about black folks in general taking their own lives.

  • Daisy

    @Elove Good question I say yes and no.I feel you cant help somebody that doesnt want to be helped but I do feel you can care about somebody and I dont feel just because one is on drugs they dont care about themselves they are just lost and searching for something.

    I am glad Jesus kept me when I didnt want to be kept!


  • Daisy

    @Pinky yes Oprah had 2 mothers on her show whose 11 yr olds killed themselves(one was here in metro Atlanta) just this yr and last. That special had to come on BET or TV1 a few yrs back and I was surprised as well. Very good special.

    @Mia thanks

  • miamore73

    Daisy I can't remember how do you change the photo?

  • Anna

    This is mental illness, it has nothing to do with how much money you have or how famous you are. He needed professional/ and anti depressants or anti anxiety meds along time ago. The survivals guilt, breaking up with his gf, it was too much.

  • Charles



    He got what he desered

  • Daisy

    @Mia I went to my gravatar(sp) acct and uploaded a new pic. Wanted to show Trey some love cause his cd is BANGIN!

  • melinla

    There's one in every bunch Charles...

  • iscream

    @ Daisy,

    I thought it was Nas at first..

    As far as suicide. My sister best friend 10 year old daughter hung herself last year bc she was teased in school for being smart and walking with a limp. Which was caused from her healing hip from a fall she had. It happens.

    @ Mia I saw the show with Lisa and Ed. Are you speaking of when she said she knew of the term crackhead but not crackho...

  • Charles

    Sorry suicide is laughable no problem is that serious that u need to kill yourself esp as rich and connected as he is he is so lucky to have been alive and instead of valuing that he turned back to drugs back to crack

    He's a joke

    What a legacy to leave that god he didn't have kids like heath ledger

    Oding on pills leaving ur daughter with a dead father all for what?

  • iscream

    Why'd you close the comments? I wanted to say.

    Nan nan nan nan nan na na nana nana nan na



    I guess Necole site being down today has given you extra hits and request.

  • ELove

    I TRULY HURT hearing about stuff like that regarding our precious future... THIS is why it is SO SO SO SO Important to Tell-n-Stress to OUR YOUNG GIRLS that others opinion of you ARE MEANINGLESS !!!

    It's what you THINK OF YOURSELF that's far more IMPORTANT

  • mizzdallas

    wow! thats sooo sad about your sister bestfriend child ICE.. Im sorry aint no way I would kill myself no matter what Im going through, "If Im going through hell on earth, aint no way I would want to end up in HELL"!

  • wiggy2272003

    My brother in law commited suicide about five years ago. Smart, naval and devry graduate, beautiful girlfriend. I think its just kept a lot more hush hush. My mother in law and all his daughters family told her he died in a car accident. She found out the truth a few months ago and has been trippin ever since.

  • Daisy

    Some ppl who commit sucicide are not in their right frame of mind. Mental illness can contribute to this issuse. Other times ppl kill themselves to prevent going to prison like the reality star just did. Many different reasons and factors and as a Christian I dont know if I beleive that you go to hell if you kill yourself esp. if you are suffering from mental illness and hear voices and what not.

    The boys whose mother were on Oprah killed themselves for being bullied and teased at school for being gay and smart SMH.

  • miamore73

    I don't think kids really really understand what suicide means. I remember actually at 10 taking some pills I found somewhere in my grandmothers house cause I didn't want to do my homework. I knew the word suicide but I don't think I knew knew. You know what I mean. In the end I think I took two valiums and ended up sleeping through from 2 in the afternoon to 8 in the morning. They never knew what was wrong and I didn't finish my homework either.

    @isc that's exactly what I'm talking about. Helfa said "If your from Inglewood why don't you know what a Crackwhore is?" WTF!!! How about cause we don't live in trailers. Yeah we called folks a crackhead but never a crackwhore. How many of us actually uses the (esp in the 80's) whore??!!

    Yeah Yeah I'm from the ING too!!

  • Daisy

    @Mia Isnt Tyra from Inglewood?

    @ice I am mad you thought that was NAS lol and I wish Sandra would open registration I think I only made it in cause we go to the same church lol

  • miamore73

    Tyra says she's from Inglewood. Even though we're the exact same age I've never ran into her or knew anyone that knew her. I do know people that knew Lisa but Tyra no way.

    I know my graphic arts teacher at Inglewood High was her stepfather back then. But that's it. She didn't go to Inglewood schools she went to a private catholic white school near Hollywood. That whole hood persona is fake as hell. She may have lived there but she didn't spend her time there.

  • miamore73

    Hey I thought it was NAS too. Was like oh Nas wonder why she picked Nas??

  • Daisy

    @Mia I am a NAS stan but that is Trey I will have to change pics again and find a pic that looks like Trey and only Trey w/ his fine azz lol

    Tyra has always come off as fake to me lol but she acts like a valley girl as well

  • Charles

    Punch queen tyra slaying the hoodrats in inglewood! Who else but tyrannasaurus

  • mizzdallas

    speaking of tyra she is a fake bish and thats all I have to say

  • miamore73

    Charles you're a fool!!!!


  • Krysi J

    shyt crazy.

  • browni007

    This is sad especially b/c he didnt have the will to live.
    I never believed in mental illness - I thought it is/was an excuse to act the fool, but after dealing with some people - I'm really starting to believe.

  • Shauny

    Some of your comments just makes me wonder what type of people you are in your life outside of the SR blog....really.

    He survived a plane crash, had survivors guilt, was given pain pills for his burns, got addicted to those which made him get back on crack, never dealt with his depression, broke up with his girlfriend (which probably was the last straw) and killed himself. Sad story for this young man, drug addict or not, it's just sad. He had things happen in his life that were so bad that he gave up 10 years of being drug free.

  • SunnyPA

    People are out there trying to kill themselves everyday. Just because they aren't taking handfuls of oxycontin(?) simultaneously doesn't make it any different.

    Let me see...
    I can name one recently deceased celebrity who had been killing hinself for almost 20 years by taking lethal drug combinations.

    Then there are drive-bys and gang wars ... that's suicide at its best. There's hopelessness in a person who saids someone says "I won't live to see 30". How many times have we heard that comment.

  • SunnyPA

    There’s hopelessness in a person who saids “I won’t live to see 30?. How many times have we heard that comment!?!?

  • SunnyPA


  • Krysi J

    :clap: @ Shauny....I agree, but didn't we just talk about this.....ain no telling how long that man wished for death, until it finally found him. I know his girlfriend is devestated.....I hope she doesn't get consumed with the same saddness....SMH

    shyt IZ crazy!!
