DJ AM, who survived a harrowing plane crash last summer along with drummer Travis Barker, is suing Learjet (and others, apparently) for at least $20 million. The former boyfriend of Nicole Richie is demanding $10 million for “medical damages, lost earnings and profits,” and another $10 million for mental and physical pain and suffering. Seeing as his body was super burned and he lost friends in the crash, we think this seems like a reasonable request.
The defendants in the case have denied any wrongdoing, but AM’s not buying it, and neither is Barker. He and the families of his assistant and bodyguard (who both died in the crash), have filed wrongful death suits against the corporations involved, and are also suing the estates of the two deceased pilots.
