Swedish DJ and musician, Avicii whose real name is Tim Bergling who died last Friday allegedly killed himself according to family members.
Although the cause of death has still not been made known to the public, a new statement by the DJ’s family members reveals the possibility that he might have killed himself.
The statement issued by his family 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, Your family.
