DJ AM (Adam Goldstein) was found dead in a Manhattan apartment on late Friday afternoon of a suspected drug overdose.
The death follows Goldstein's survival of a plane crash in September 2008 after the Learjet he was in caught fire, killing four people. Blink 182 drummer, Travis Barker, also survived the same crash.
DJ AM has previously battled a drug addiction and had signed on to star in an "intervention themed reality" show for MTV titled "Gone Too Far."
Later reports suggest that Goldstein may have been depressed after breaking up with his girlfriend.
