DJ AM agreed to go to rehab the day before his death

DJAMsbo_James_58194472_600 DJ AM met with his recovery sponsor the day before his death and admitted that that had relapsed. 

He also agreed to go to back to rehab.

Sadly, he never made it.

Insiders told investigators that his West Coast manager and recovery sponsor flew to NYC to see DJ AM to find out what was causing his erratic behavior.

 When they got to  his apartment, DJ AM would only   let his sponsor inside.

According to Perez Hilton,  DJ AM "lit up a crack pipe and popped pills" right in front of him.

Adam Goldstein (his real name) promised his manager and sponsor that after his gig in Las Vegas last Friday, he would check himself into a rehab in California.

 But he missed that performance and was found dead in his NY apartment the next day.

The cause of death won't be determined for several weeks when toxicology reports come back.

All we can hope is that his shocking death will remind other recovering addicts that relapsing is the highway to the morgue.
