BRAND NEW ON E!
Refuting earlier reports that Chris Baker, Travis Barker's friend and business partner who was one of four people killed in a private-plane crash Friday night that left Barker and DJ AM severely injured, was on his way home to be with his pregnant wife, a rep for AM has released this statement:
"In regards to [inaccurate reports], Lil Chris Baker did not ask for a jet to meet his wife in delivery because she's not even pregnant. A private jet had always been chartered as DJ AM had a private engagement today in Los Angeles."
Baker and his wife are parents of a 2-year-old son.
The 29-year-old Studio City, Calif., resident managed Barker's L.A. punk-fashion boutique Fast Life and was frequently seen on the drummer's MTV reality series Meet the Barkers.
EDITOR'S NOTE: E! Online's earlier report about Baker was based on information received from a friend of DJ AM and Travis Barker. We regret our error.
