DJ AM's death was not a suicide From TMZ: "Law enforcement sources directly connected with the death of DJ AM tell us that his death was the result of an accidental overdose and not a suicide - and there is a tragic, ironic twist of fate. Our sources say DJ AM, a recovering addict, developed a dependency to Xanax and other benzodiazepines (a group of drugs used to treat anxiety) as a direct result of the plane crash a year ago ... We're told doctors began prescribing Xanax and other anti-anxiety medications to relieve his fear, but the benzos triggered a relapse into addiction ... We're also told the OD had "absolutely nothing to do with his recent breakup." Our sources say the evidence strongly indicates cause of death will be a combination of crack cocaine and benzos."

Shania Twain posts some home movies Doesn't embed, so click here. She explains, "Sorry about the poor quality of the footage but almost all of what you will see, both photos and video, were shot on Fred's cell phone with the exception of the skydive filmed from a tiny, wrist camera worn by the guide. Although the images weren't originally filmed with the intention of sharing them publicly, in the end I decided it was more fun to share them. We weren't paying attention to quality, all of it being done on the fly, so I've included text in various places to help explain and make things easier to follow. Once again, it's all very candid footage so be ready to see a lot of me without makeup, no touch ups, some bad hair and looking pretty goofy. There is no glamour but plenty of genuine smiles."
