People.com is quoting sources claiming DJ AM was upset over his recent breakup with model Hayley Wood. "She ended it, and he didn't want it to end. The breakup hurt him. He hadn't been in a good place lately. For the past week, he wasn't really around, he was keeping to himself, and he was blowing people off," said a source.
