Just an hour after news broke of DJ AM’s death, further details have been revealed.

TMZ reports:

Sources tell TMZ DJ AM had been “completely devastated” over a recent breakup with his girlfriend, Hayley Wood.

We’re told they split within the last week — she was the one who called off their relationship.

We’re also told he was having a very hard time dealing with post-traumatic stress from the plane crash he survived in September of last year.

DJ AM has been sober for nine years, but our sources say the breakup and the stress over the plane crash could have caused him to start using drugs again.

AM’s body was found in a New York City apartment after a friend went to check on him because he hadn’t heard from him in a few days. When he didn’t receive an answer, he called police, who broke down the door and found AM’s body.

Sources have told TMZ that prescription pill bottles were found near DJ AM’s body, while a “crack pipe” was found in his bedroom.
