DJ AM Sued Over Sickening 'Foul Odor'

8/3/2010 4:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

DJ AM's former neighbor is suing the deceased star's estate -- claiming AM owned a piece of property that smelled so bad, it literally made one man sick to his stomach.

In a lawsuit, filed today in L.A. County Superior Court, a man named Isaac Toveg claims while he lived near AM -- aka Adam Goldstein -- he often noticed a "gaseous foul odor and/or smell" emitting from AM's property.

Toveg claims when he would go outside, he would "experience problems in breathing and stomach ailments and would become severely ill" and was eventually diagnosed with Helicobacter pylori.

According to the suit, Toveg claims he told AM about the problem, but was ignored. Toveg claims after AM died -- it was discovered that there was a "broken" sewer pipe on the property. Toveg claims he is now "able to relate his illness to the broken sewer pipe."

Toveg is suing for more than $25k in damages.

TMZ spoke to Jenni Weinman -- a rep for AM's estate -- who tells us, "It’s ironic that this suit was filed so close to the year anniversary of Adam's passing."

She continues, "I am sure that any issues regarding the drainage system or sewer pipes in the neighborhood are more of a city maintenance issue as opposed to a DJ AM estate issue.”

While biologists and other experts have established that this CAN be transmitted from person to person they still DO NOT know exactly how this is done.......They have NOT ruled out airborne transmission,and actually state that they have NO definative ideas of how its transmitted.........80% of the population carry it..... and it's presence is generally lifelong,tho the symptoms are treatable....while some people NEVER develop the painful symptoms, others dont show symptoms for decades.....some possible ways they THINK its transmitted is through improperly prepared food.......unsanitary water supplies....and in past decade they have found increases among heavily populated ares suggesting that it can possibly be spread through airborne transmission and even touch from those suffering from the symptoms that develop in some people yet not others.....So truth is....they have NOT ruled out airborne transmission and are not sure definatively how it can or cannot be spread....It wasnt even positively identified until 1984......for those who will want to disagree, feel free to research it theu the American Medical Journal rather than wiki or what your mom's cousin's dr told them lol........the one symptom they havent linked to the bacteria are breathing complications.......frivilous lawsuit IMHO
