Avicii Family Issue Second Statement After Death: “He Could Not Go On Any Longer”

Published: Friday 27th Apr 2018 by Sam


It’s been a week since Avicii – the celebrated DJ and producer – shockingly passed away in Oman. The star, real name Tim Bergling, was just 28.

And while details surrounding his death remains shroud in mystery, his family have released a second statement; one which some have interpreted as pointing to suicide as the cause.

Their words below…

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

In a formal statement issued to press, they wrote:

We would like to thank you for the support and the loving words about our son and brother. We are so grateful for everyone who loved Tim’s music and have precious memories of his songs.

Thank you for all the initiatives taken to honor Tim, with public gatherings, church bells ringing out his music, tributes at Coachella and moments of silence around the world.

We are grateful for the privacy during this difficult time. Our wish is that it continues that way.

With love,

The Tim Bergling Family

Our thoughts and prayers go out to The Bergling family during what has to be such a trying time.
