Avicii’s cause of death confirmed as suicide
Avicii‘s family shared another statement in regards to his mysterious death last week in Oman. The tone of the statement leads us to believe his death was by suicide.
The statement was in Swedish and translates to: “Our beloved Tim was a seeker, a fragile artistic soul searching for answers to existential questions. An overachieving perfectionist who traveled 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.”
