NEW YORK (AP) - A law enforcement official says the celebrity disc jockey known as DJ AM has been found dead in his New York City apartment, which had drug paraphernalia in it.

The official tells The Associated Press that 36-year-old Adam Goldstein was found in his Manhattan apartment Friday evening. The official says there was no evidence of foul play.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because family hadn't been notified and said paramedics had to break down the door to get in.

Goldstein was a deejay for hire who performed at Hollywood's most exclusive parties. He also was known for relationships with reality TV star Nicole Richie and actress-singer Mandy Moore.

The death comes a year after Goldstein survived a South Carolina plane crash that killed four other people.
