It seems that Avicii’s family members may have hinted at his cause of death.
The Swedish-born DJ – whose real name is Tim Bergling – was found dead last week in Muscat, Oman. He was 28 years old. Following a 1st statement after Avicii’s shocking death, his family released a 2nd statement yesterday (Thursday, 26th April).
The statement reads:
“Our beloved Tim was a seeker, a fragile artistic soul searching for answers to existential questions. An over-achieving perfectionist who travelled and worked hard at a pace that led to extreme stress.
When he stopped touring, he wanted to find a balance in life to be happy and be able to do what he loved most – music. He really struggled with thoughts about Meaning, Life, Happiness. He could not go on any longer.
He wanted to find peace. Tim was not made for the business machine he found himself in; he was a sensitive guy who loved his fans but shunned the spotlight. Tim, you will forever be loved and sadly missed. The person you were and your music will keep your memory alive.
We love you,
The statement seems to imply that Avicii committed suicide. A police report is expected within the next few days.
