DJ AM: I'm Not Suing The Deceased Pilots

Plane crash survivor DJ AM, aka Adam Goldstein, has taken to his blog to clear up some rumors about the lawsuit he filed earlier this month. Here’s what the 35-year-old had to write:

“Normally I don’t feel like I NEED to make a statement like this, but after I read some recently reported untruths I feel like I have to. I want to take a second to address the hurtful posts and clear up any misunderstandings any of you may have about my law suit. I would NEVER sue the deceased pilots’ estates or personal holdings. I am more than grateful that I survived this horrible accident and I’d never try to take anything from those that didn’t. Despite the misinterpretations of the lawsuit, this suit is against the insurance companies that insured the pilots. I’m not after Sarah [Lemmon]‘s or James [Bland]‘ personal estates nor their property. Everyone involved in this suit has suffered a great deal, and I would not do anything to make matters worse for the deceased family and friends. Daily I live with the guilt and grief of what happened that night, what I saw, who was lost and why I was spared. I have no words to express the pain that comes with knowing four people died, while I lived.”

DJ AM Files Lawsuit Over Plane Crash

DJ AM, aka Adam Goldstein, filed a lawsuit on Tuesday over the fatal plane crash that killed four people and seriously injured him and Travis Barker in September.

The suit claims the plane negligently aborted takeoff in South Carolina, causing the plane to overrun the runway and crash into an embankment.

“The pilots were either poorly trained and/or failed to follow their training,” says the L.A. Superior Court lawsuit of pilots Sarah Lemmon, 31, and James Bland, 52, both killed in the crash. “Rather than proceed to takeoff, they decided to abort and/or reject the takeoff in a negligent manner.”

Travis and DJ AM are set to perform together at New Year’s Nation’s Los Angeles New Year’s Eve Party at the Lot in West Hollywood.
