DJ AM Wanted to Kill Himself

The guy who I mostly only used to notice as the boyfriend of Nicole Richie, has since had the distinction of being Mandy Moore’s boyfriend and now is doing interviews with Glamour magazine about his own career as a DJ and his struggles with drug addiction. Adam “DJ AM” Goldstein reportedly was so distressed over being overweight and hooked on crack cocaine at the age of 24 that he contemplated suicide, but wasn’t able to go through with it. And even though he’s been clean for a good nine years and a half years, he admits that he faces his demons every day. “I have to remind myself [that I’m] a fat crackhead who’s lucky to be alive.” Eww, you mean he used to be fat?
