Sources say that the late DJ AM was "completely devastated" over a recent breakup with his girlfriend, Hayley Wood, with whom he split within the last week.

Hayley Wood was the one who called off their relationship.

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

Police found DJ AM dead in his New York apartment yesterday. The celebrity DJ, whose real name was Adam Goldstein, battled substance abuse in the past.

According to folks close to him, DJ AM was having a very hard time dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder from the plane crash he survived last September.

DJ AM has been sober for nine years, but sources say the breakup and the stress over the plane crash could have caused him to start using drugs again.

Prescription pill bottles and drug paraphernalia were allegedly found at the scene.

His body was removed last night. The friend who called 911 on Friday, prompting cops to enter Goldstein's apartment, told the dispatcher DJ AM had not been seen for two days, but people were still hearing from him Thursday.

The celebrity spin-meister will certainly be missed by stars and fans alike. Here's a video of Hayley Wood and DJ AM which she posted a few months ago ...

Move over, Al Roker. Another TV journalist has taken hilarious, cheap shots at Heidi Montag and sparked venomous a retort from her slimy husband Spencer.

Earlier this week, CNN's Anderson Cooper called the recent Miss Universe performance by Heidi - whoever she is - a "fresh new way to embarrass herself."

With a clip of the epic crap-fest playing in the background, Cooper said he doesn't know "who this person is, nor why she is pretending to be a singer, nor why anyone should actually listen to her, but apparently, she's famous." Point, AC!

In reference to Heidi thanking God after her performance, Cooper said that "I really don't think God had anything to do with this. If God had time to work on this production, if this is the best God can do, then we're all in trouble."

He also noted that Heidi could not remember the lyrics to her own song ... while lip-synching. Classic, and quite true. But Spencer Pratt was not amused.

"Between health care, CIA interrogation techniques and the economy, I think it's funny how the Silver Coyote spent four minutes discussing someone who he claims to not know exists," Spencer said, even though it was closer to one minute.

Pratt added that Cooper is "trying to get a piece of Speidi's fame."

"It's our pleasure to help out anyone whose ratings are in need," Spencer said. "We appreciate every second people spend talking about the greatest performance in television history, which over a billion people saw."

EDITOR'S NOTE: A billion people did not watch. Six million did in the U.S., plus a few million more elsewhere. So he's right, give or take 990 million.

Why let facts stand in the way of a good press release, right Spencer? Then again, he also compared her to Michael Jackson earlier this week. Sigh.

Here's Anderson Cooper's commentary on Heidi's "singing" ...

Welcome, celebrity gossip and news fans, to The Hollywood Gossip's Week in Review, wherein we take a look back at some of the stories that made this probably the most exciting week since ... probably last week. Some highlights:

  • After fleeing the U.S. following the grisly murder of Jasmine Fiore, fugitive from justice Ryan Jenkins was found dead in a British Columbia motel.
  • Chris Brown was given five years' probation for assaulting Rihanna - and warned by a judge about "chatter" regarding the two being in contact.
  • It was an uncharacteristically slow Robsten news week ... until the alleged purchase of a love nest by Kristen in which to carry on a torrid romance.
  • In a watershed music moment, Heidi Montag "sang" at the Miss Universe 2009 pageant. Heidi's performance was maybe even worse than expected.
  • Police found DJ AM dead in his New York City apartment Friday afternoon.
  • A big nightclub fight saw Jayde Nicole get her ass kicked ... by Joe Francis.
  • Angelina tells Brad he can go ahead and sleep on the couch. Yeah right.
  • We've heard this one before: Anne Heche says Coley Laffoon is a loser.

Anne Heche's deadbeat ex Coley Laffoon made an unlikely return to celeb news this week, causing a (very) brief lull in konstant Kourtney Kardashian koverage.

  • Kourtney Kardashian kreates headlines almost as well as she does babies.
  • Reports surfaced of an engaged Derek Jeter. No comment from Minka Kelly.
  • John Mayer's mug shot from 2001 was found. One a d-bag, always a d-bag.
  • Peeps in Bucharest really booed Madonna after she spoke out for gypsies.
  • Move over, Susan Boyle. Welcome, Danyl Johnson, Britain's new sensation.
  • Move over, Omer Bhatti. Welcome, Prince Michael Malachi Jet Jackson, the new alleged secret love child of the late, great star Michael Jackson.
  • As for Jackson's own kids, it's looking increasingly likely that Dr. Arnold Klein is the biological father of the first two. We're as confused as you.
  • In the investigation into Jackson's death, police pretty much believe nothing Dr. Conrad Murray says regarding the timeline of events June 25.

DJ AM, who fought several battles with drugs in the past and survived a near-fatal plane crash just last year, passed away this afternoon. He was 36.

The star, whose real name was Adam Goldstein, was found dead in his New York City apartment Friday afternoon. The cause of death has not been released by the medical examiner, although it does not look like there was foul play.

Sources say he was found in his apartment at around 5:20 p.m. DJ AM had not been seen or heard from in a few days, prompting one of his friends to check on him.

He got no response after knocking on his apartment door.

The friend called the police, and this afternoon, the fire department finally entered his apartment and found his body, shirtless and wearing sweatpants.

TMZ reports that drug paraphernalia was found at the scene, including a "pipe commonly used to smoke drugs" - later identified as a crack pipe.

There were also reports of prescription pill bottles found in the vicinity of DJ AM's body. Details are just trickling in at this time, but stay tuned.

Adam Goldstein, a.k.a. DJ AM (1973-2009).

Only three days before his death, he Tweeted, "New york, new york. Big city of dreams, but everything in new york aint always what it seems." So true.

Last year, he revealed that he was abused by his father, became addicted to drugs and had even attempted suicide in the past. DJ AM said he attended recovery meetings and has remained drug-free for about a decade.

"He was sober for 10 years, a friend said. "His sobriety was really important to him."

In April, the celebrity DJ signed on to do an intervention-style reality show, called Gone Too Far, on MTV and had began promoting the series this month.

In September, he was badly injured after a plane caught fire during an aborted takeoff in South Carolina. After surviving the crash that left four others dead, the star - who survived along with Travis Barker - said he was "the luckiest guy alive."

America's most eligible bachelor, Jon Gosselin, says that while it was over with wife Kate last fall, he tried counseling in an effort to save their marriage.

"I worked on my marriage," the reality star told People.

"I went to therapy. I have huge bills, so [detractors] can't denounce that. For [Kate] to say she'd been working on it – well, I'd been working on it too."

"At one point in time I just gave up. There's a point in time where you have to just say, 'This is not going to work.' So at that point I just moved on."

That point for Jon was October 2008.

In May 2009, he says he began "talking" to Hailey Glassman, 22, but they did not start dating until after Kate Gosselin filed for divorce on June 22.

That's because it "wasn't appropriate" to paw each other until then, Jon says. Railing Deanna Hummel prior to the divorce filing? Another matter.

Jon Gosselin loves Hailey Glassman. And earrings, and Ed Hardy t-shirts.

In any case, Jon has no problem admitting he and Hailey Glassman are "boyfriend and girlfriend," and in no uncertain terms, that he's a one-woman man:

"I love Hailey," he says.

But he still has respect for his ex-wife, particularly as a mother: "I have no ill will toward Kate. She's the mother of my kids. She's a great mom."

"I'll always love Kate. I went through a bunch of pictures today, it's sad to see something that was good turn bad, but we moved in different directions."

And he's not talking just about opposite ends of the couch - although Jon says anyone watching Jon & Kate Plus 8 could tell they were having issues.

"We move further and further apart because we're frustrated," he says. "But it's reality TV. We get in a fight today and have to do an interview tonight."

It's tough being Jon. If only he could get a regular 9-to-5 job ... that pays him $75,000 a week and enables him to score with lots of mediocre girls.

The Los Angeles County Coroner has just ruled the manner of Michael Jackson's death homicide, and the official cause of death "Acute Propofol intoxication."

Reports surfaced last week that the signer's death would be ruled a homicide, which constitutes a death at the hand of another person, but does not necessarily result in criminal charges. In this case, however, odds are that it will.

Michael Jackson (1958-2009)

Sources familiar with the case say prosecution is not inevitable, given Jackson’s long history of drug use, health problems and other challenges in the case.

However, in court papers, the LAPD has identified Dr. Conrad Murray, Jackson's doctor at the time of his death, as the target of a manslaughter investigation.

The Coroner did not disclose the full autopsy - just a press release summarizing it. But when the manner of death is ruled "homicide," you get the idea.

The report says "other conditions contributing to death: Benzodiazepine effect." Benzodiazepines are a group of drugs used to treat anxiety and insomnia.

According to the medical examiners' findings, Propofol and Lorazepam (Ativan) were found to be the primary drugs responsible for Michael Jackson's death.

Other drugs detected in Michael Jackson's system:

  • Midazolam (Versed)
  • Diazepam (Valium)
  • Lidocaine (a topical anesthetic)
  • Ephedrine (for hypotension associated with anesthesia)

The final and complete report, including the toxicology report, will remain on security hold, per the LAPD, which is still investigating the star's demise.

No charges have been filed against anyone ... yet.

Dr. Conrad Murray, Jackson's personal physician, has admitted giving him what was the fatal dose of Propofol. However, the timeline in which that took place, as well as the various other inconsistencies, have police digging deeper.

He may well face a manslaughter charge when all is said and done.

Emily Blunt and John Krasinski are engaged, according to the stars' rep.

"We can confirm John and Emily are engaged," a rep for both stars said.

That's even better than The Office spoilers about Jim and Pam's wedding!

John Krasinski is 29 and Emily Blunt is 26. The two began dating in November 2008, but have been very tight-lipped about their relationship throughout.

We are happy for the cute and talented couple, who seem great together.

Blunt said she learned her lesson after she was forced to discuss her split from Canadian singer Michael Buble in July of last year after three years together.

We forget the details of their breakup, but the fact that there was a grainy picture of Michael Buble naked on some chick's phone couldn't have helped.

"Unfortunately, when you invite those questions in, when things go south, people still assume you want to talk about it. And I don't," she said.

"It was a learning curve for me," the London native added. "I don't feel like [talking about my relationship] is something I have to do."

Well, here's wishing them a happy, private lifetime together!
