It’s been a week since the news broke that Swedish EDM DJ Tim Bergling – who performed under the stage name Avicii – passed away. A new statement released by Bergling’s family suggests the DJ died of an apparent suicide.
The statement, which has been translated from Swedish, reads in full:
The 28-year-old DJ was found in his hotel room in Oman on April 20. It should be noted that following two post-mortem examinations authorities did not suspect any foul play.
Before retiring from performing in 2016 due to health complications, Avicii repeatedly made Forbes‘ list of “Highest-Paid Dj’s. He came in at number three in 2014. His 2013 hit, “Wake Me Up,” which featured soul singer Aloe Blacc, peaked at number four on the Hot 100.
