DJ AM Laid to Rest
Six days after his death, DJ AM was laid to rest in a private ceremony Wednesday, Usmagazine.com confirms.
Shortly after 3 p.m. PST, guests -- including pal Travis Barker -- began to congregate at Hillside Memorial Park and Mortuary in L.A. for a funeral service honoring the celebrity DJ (real name: Adam Goldstein), who died last week of an apparent drug overdose at the age of 36.
Ocean's 11 star Scott Caan and DJ Jazzy Jeff was also in attendance.
(Reports that Nicole Richie, who is due to give birth to her second child, and Joel and Benji Madden attended the ceremony are inaccurate, a source tells Us.)
The service was held in the mortuary and then moved outside around 4 p.m. A procession of cars followed the hearse to the back of one of L.A.'s most prominent Jewish cemeteries for the somber burial, which lasted 15 minutes.
The Blink-182 drummer -- wearing dark sunglasses and a pin-striped suit with slick-backed hair -- paid his respects and threw dirt on the coffin.
After the burial, Barker and walked among family and close friends.
A memorial for the star is also set for Thursday. The event will take place at the Hollywood Palladium at 7 p.m., and "the format of the evening will be in the style of an open 12-step meeting," according to the invitation. "Adam's friends both from his life in recovery, as well as those from other areas of his life, are welcome."
