It’s been two weeks Swedish DJ Avicii, 28, passed away in Muscat, Oman on April 20. Last week Avicii’s family had released a statement mentioning that Avicii had commited a suicide because he was stressed and wanted peace. However, how did Avicii commit suicide was never revealed by Omam authorities nor did his family say much.
A source close to Avicii’s family said, “The family was aware that Tim was mentally unwell. It went up and down, but when he was in Oman it got worse.”
Added further, “When they spoke to Tim on the phone, they got worried., The family understood that it was bad and that they had to act. The plane landed two hours after Tim had passed away.”
According to TMZ reports, “Avicii used a piece of broken glass of wine bottle to cut himself that caused massive bleeding.”
Earlier, family of Avicii had penned an emotional letter stating his cause of death. It read –
“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,” the statement issued by his family began. “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,” the statement continued. “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.”
Following his death, authorities said Bergling’s death was not being treated as suspicious. As Tim was already experiencing health issues, diagnosed with acute pancreatitis at the age of 21 due to excessive drinking habit. He did even undergo surgrey in 2014 to have his gallbladder and appendix removed.
An official cause of Avicii aka Tim Bergling’s death has not been made public. The purpose of not revealing much details on Avicii’s suicide is for the right reason. APC states “extra caution is required when the material is likely to be read or seen by people who may be especially vulnerable (eg, because of their age or mental health) and relates to suicides by their peers or by celebrities.”
All we can say is – rest in peace, Avicii!
