Goldstein, who had been alcohol-free for 11 years and drug-free for 4 years, was said to have never recovered from last year's plane crash that left him severely burned and deeply traumatized, reports the Fox News. Jackson too was claimed to have put up with drug problem that was sparked after being burned in a 1984 Pepsi commercial.
While autopsy results are yet to determine the cause of Goldstein's death, friends of the late 36-year-old think he lost the battle in a one-off relapse. A close pal told Tarts: "It was a one time relapse that was a mistake. I hate that people are going to remember him for this and for not only revolutionizing DJing and his amazing spirit. I just spoke to him a few days ago and he was so excited to have thrown the first pitch at the METS game last weekend. He was such a special person."
