AVICII killed himself and left a suicide note, his family have revealed.
The troubled DJ, who was found dead at a resort in Oman, was a “fragile soul” who “could not go on any longer”, relatives said.
A poignant statement released today said Avicii, real name Tim Bergling, “couldn’t go on” when he took his life at a resort in Muscat last Friday.
The statement, translated from Swedish, 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.
“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.”
