DJ AM was released from Doctors Hospital in Augusta, Ga., where he was being treated for injuries from a fatal plane crash
"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," his rep, Jenni Weinman, says in a statement. "We ask that you continue to respect his privacy as he rests and heals and mourns the loss of his friends."
DJ AM, 35, whose real name is Adam Goldstein, suffered serious burns in the crash shortly after midnight Sept. 19 that also injured Travis Barker, 32, and killed four others.
Barker is expected to leave the hospital
in about two weeks, says his friend Jermaine Dupri, who visited the former Blink 182 drummer in the hospital last Sunday.RELATED GALLERY:
