Avicii’s cause of death was suicide, family mourns young fallen star.
Avicii died from loss of blood caused by a self-inflicted wound, according to a new report.
The Swedish DJ – whose real name is Tim Bergling – was found tragically dead at the age of 28 in Muscat, Oman, on April 20.
According to TMZ.com, multiple sources have confirmed the EDM superstar committed suicide, cutting himself with a piece of broken bottle, causing massive bleeding.
Avicii’s family last week released a second statement following his passing, which alluded that he had taken his own life.
The statement, which was originally written in Swedish, read: “Stockholm, 26 April 2018. 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, Your family [sic]”
Following Avicii’s untimely passing a police report on the cause of death is expected imminently.
The ‘Wake Me Up’ hitmaker suffered from various health problems in his life including acute pancreatitis – which was caused in part by excessive alcohol consumption – and in 2014 he had his appendix and gallbladder removed before he retired from touring in 2016.
