DJ AM Released From Hospital, Back in L.A.

Just one week after the fatal plane crash that left DJ AM critically injured, a rep for the Hollywood spinner confirms that the artist otherwise known as Adam Goldstein has been released from the hospital.

"Adam Goldstein has been released from Doctors Hospital," AM's publicist said in a statement. "While he is deeply saddened by the events, he is thankful for all of the love and support he has been receiving from fans and friends worldwide.

"We ask that you continue to respect his privacy as he rests and heals and mourns the loss of his friends."

While it's unclear exactly when the music man was released, a source tells E! News that Goldstein is already back in Los Angeles.

The 35-year-old was said to have suffered second- and third-degree burns to his upper body and head when a private plane chartered by him and Travis Barker apparently busted a tire during takeoff and burst into flames.

Both men, the only survivors of the crash, were taken from the airport in Columbia, S.C., to the nearby Joseph Still Burn Center in Augusta, Ga., where Barker remains.

But his stay shouldn't last too much longer.

Last night, hip-hop producer and Barker business partner Jermaine Dupri made the media rounds, announcing that the former Blink-182 drummer would likely be released after just two more weeks in the hospital.
