Statement From Avicii's Family Reveals Everything Was Not What It Seemed

The whole situation is devastating

Fans and the music industry alike were devastated by the death of Swedish DJ and producer Avicii last week at the age of 28.

CNN have now obtained a statement from his family, revealing that he was a perfectionist who was looking for balance in his life and wanted to be able to do what he loved the most, create music.

While there were no suspicious circumstances around his death, the statement does go on to say; "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."


Our thoughts are with his family at this time and we hope they are getting all the support they need.
