DJ Avicii a.k.a Tim Bergling
Global superstar DJ Avicii died by suicide, his family has said in a statement. 
In a second statement issued by his family, they said that he ‘could not go on any longer’ on 20 April. 
The statement, translated from Swedish, read: ‘Our beloved Tim was a seeker, a fragile artistic soul searching for answers to existential questions. An overachieving 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.

They added that he wanted to find peace. Tim Bergling felt the pressure of the entertainment world and found it tough to handle because 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.’ 
The pre-translated speech ‘made the implication [of suicide] more probable’. The star, was found dead in Muscat, Oman, where he was on holiday with friends

The Swedish DJ, who died last week aged only 28,  had suffered many health problems throughout his life.
In the documentary Avicii: True Stories, the Levels hitmaker can be seen struggling to stay awake after leaving the hospital as he was on medication. After having his gallbladder and appendix removed, Avicii was prescribed Percocet, an opioid painkiller.
