The death of DJ AM, whose real name is Adam Goldstein, death was not a suicide but was the result of an accidental overdose.

Ironically, sources indicated that DJ AM was a recovering addict who developed a dependency to Xanax and other benzodiazepines (a group of drugs used to treat anxiety) as a direct result of the plane crash he was involved in a year ago.

Doctors began prescribing Xanax and other anti-anxiety medications to DJ AM to relieve his fear of flying, but the benzodiazepines triggered a relapse into addiction.

There were earlier speculations that Goldstein may have overdosed as a result of a recent break-up with his long time girlfriend, but according to reports from TMZ the overdose had, absolutely nothing to do with his recent breakup.
