Last week, the heartbreaking news of Avicii’s suicide came to light.
In another shocking revelation, TMZ revealed yesterday (Tuesday, 1st May) that Avicii (real name Tim Bergling) killed himself by cutting himself with broken glass. This comes after the DJ and producer’s immediate family released their statement, confirming that he had left a suicide note.
The 28-year-old hit-maker was found dead in Muscat, Oman, on 20th April. Although the police has stated that there was “no criminal suspicion” tied to this case, the alleged circumstances leading up to his death may be a bit upsetting for some.
Based on TMZ’s report, Avicii used a a shard of glass (some claim it’s from a wine bottle) to “inflict the fatal wound” that resulted in “massive bleeding”. Despite there being conflicting reports of the injury (several sources suggest it was his neck while others insist it was his wrist), the cause of it was a broken glass.
Avicii made the decision to retire from touring in 2016 after suffering acute pancreatitis. For years, the Stockholm-born entertainer alcohol problems.
Rest in peace, Avicii :(
