LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Following reports linking the sudden death of DJ AM to a recent break-up with girlfriend Hayley Wood, the 22-year-old American Apparel model is denying reports of their split.
“Any indication that this horribly tragic accident happened because of a rumored breakup is not only untrue but disgusting,” Wood told Us Weekly. “We were very much together at the time of his passing, and I love him very much.”
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, sources told Access that authorities found a crack pipe and a bag of the drug near DJ AM’s body after breaking the star’s door down, following a 911 call from one of his friends.
Prescription pills were also found in the apartment, sources told Access.
DJ AM had recently completed an MTV intervention-style reality series, “Gone Too Far,” just three days before his death. No word yet from the network on if the DJ’s death has impacted plans to air the series.
The coroner said autopsy tests were inconclusive and DJ AM’s cause of death has yet to be determined.
On Friday, however, police sources said they suspected an overdose was to blame.
DJ AM will be buried on Thursday, a source told Access.
