Mandy Moore shared a heartfelt message honoring DJ AM on the tenth anniversary of his death.
The actress used Instagram to pay tribute to the DJ, born Adam Goldstein. Moore dated the musician briefly before he passed away from a drug overdose. He was found unresponsive in his New York City apartment on August 28, 2009.
His shocking death came one year after DJ AM was in a plane crash with Blink-182’s Travis Barker. The fatal accident killed four people. When news of the crash broke, Moore dropped everything to fly to Joseph Still Burn Center in Augusta, Georgia. The two remained good friends after their brief romance.
“It’s been 10 years. There are so many times I still find myself wanting to tell you about something funny or strange or exciting. I miss your contagious, guttural laugh and your hugs. The best hugs. Miss you every day but today is always hard,” the This Is Us beauty shared on Instagram along with a photo of DJ AM.
The comments section of Moore’s post became flooded with famous and not so famous people responding to her tribute to her friend.
“I guarantee you he’s reading this and sending you a big hug,” wrote Glamour West Coast Editor, Jessica Radloff.
“Best DJ ever. Its not even a close 2nd, and I grew up listening to the greatest. It breaks my heart, but I listen to his music and his mash-ups every single day. It’s still revolutionary what he was able to accomplish,” replied Shawn Dees.
“true angel” shared Roxy Olin.
Travis Barker and Wilmer Valderrama used heart emojis to express their thoughts on Moore’s message.
Each year since DJ AM’s shocking death, Mandy Moore has honored her ex-boyfriend and good pal. She let her followers know another year has gone by, but she doesn’t miss the DJ any less.
“9 years. I miss you every day, Adam,” the brunette beauty wrote last year.
Adam Goldstein struggled with addiction his entire life. The 2016 documentary The Life and Time$ of DJ AM detailed his battle. DJ AM was in the middle of working on the reality TV series, Gone Too Far about drug addiction when he died. It debuted two months after his shocking death.
It has been ten years since DJ AM died of a drug overdose. Moore shared a lovely message about her friend to honor him on the anniversary of his death.
