Avicii’s family released an official statement regarding his death today. As fans know, the famed 28-year-old DJ was found dead while vacationing in Muscat, Oman, on April 20.
‘Our beloved Tim was a seeker, a fragile artistic soul searching for answers to existential questions. An over-achieving 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,’ the statement read.
‘He really struggled with thoughts about Meaning, Life, Happiness. He could not go on any longer. He wanted to find peace. Tim wasn’t made for the business machine he found himself in; he was a sensitive guy who loved his fans but shunned the spotlight,’ the words continue.
It finally ends with: ‘Tim, you will forever be loved and missed. The person you were and your music will forever keep your memory alive.’
Last Saturday, the Muscat Hills Resort, where he was staying also shared a statement on social media that claimed ‘he was extremely kind to all our staff and acted like any of our regular guests.’
‘Avicii did seem to be in good spirits while enjoying his time and he was also very friendly with everyone. As much as we enjoyed his company here at Muscat Hills Resort, we’re extremely sad to hear and read all the recent news, and therefore we’d like to express our sincere condolences to his family, friends and all his fans.’
Avicii had already retired from performing live back in 2016 due to reported health reasons.
But doesn’t it sound like his loved ones are saying he may have committed suicide?
