Listening to DJ AM talk about crack being his "drug of choice" is downright chilling, but in a recent interview with MTV News to promote his upcoming reality show about drug abuse (Gone Too Far), the late Adam Goldstein said exactly that.
DJ AM talked described how he bought a crack pipe to show how easy it is. The 36-year-old said, "I bought a crack pipe ... that was my drug of choice."
"And I walked out and I'm holding it," he said.
"And I realized after I was holding it that my palms were sweaty and I was like, 'Wait a minute, this is not smart for me to be holding this right now.'"
He recently signed on to do the MTV reality show Gone Too Far, about getting users off drugs, and while filming the show he held the crack pipe for the first time in years, but said that a guardian angel was looking after him.
DJ AM was found dead in his apartment Friday night of an apparent drug overdose. A law enforcement source said a bag of crack was found by his body.
No one knows for sure, but he was said to be upset over a recent breakup with girlfriend Hayley Wood. He was last heard from around 1 a.m. Friday.
Goldstein, who often talked openly and honestly about his myriad past struggles with drug abuse, claimed he was off drugs for more than 11 years.
On Saturday, the New York City Medical Examiner's office announced that after an initial autopsy proved "inconclusive," more tests, including a toxicology report that might require weeks to conduct, would be performed.
