Mandy Moore’s DJ boyfriend Adam Goldstein tried to kill himself after years of drug abuse left him feeling his “life was over”.
The 34-year-old – also known as DJ AM – suffered as a child at the hands of an abusive father, until he was kicked out of his parents’ home at the age of 14.
He tells Glamour magazine: “I spent the next two years doing drugs every day, until I went to my mom and actually asked her to send me to rehab.”
He spent the next four years in a centre he describes as an “abusive house of horrors”.
“When I was 20, I started freebasing cocaine. For the next four years, that’s about all I did – with the exception of DJing. At 24, I felt like my life was over,” he revealed.
He put a loaded gun in his mouth, “But the gun didn’t go off.”
Since then, life has changed for the star, but he insists he fights a daily battle to stay clean: “It’s been nine and a half years since I’ve had a drink or taken drugs… but I’m still an addict.”
