Avicii Committed Suicide With a Piece of Glass, Report States

The tragic story surrounding Avicii keeps getting worse.

It now looks like Tim Bergling, aka Avicii, committed suicide in a gruesome manner.  The latest information on Avicii’s death is coming from TMZ — so we’re not entirely sure of its accuracy — but it looks like the superstar DJ cut himself with a broken bottle and subsequently bled to death.

Earlier, a heartbreaking note from Bergling’s family strongly suggested suicide.  But the manner and details were left out of that note.

Now, multiple sources are stating that Avicii used a ‘shard of glass that caused massive bleeding,’ with separate sources claiming the glass came from ‘a broken bottle’.  All of which points to a seriously depressed and desperate person, and someone who simply wanted out.

At this stage, we’re not clear where the cut was made.  But the resulting massive blood loss seems to be the cause of death.  We’re also unclear if there was a suicide note.

Bergling was pronounced death by authorities in Muscat, Oman on April 20th.  He was 28.  A few days later, Oman authorities indicated no foul play, strongly suggesting an overdose or suicide.

In a haunting documentary released last year, Avicii predicated that he was ‘literally going to die’ if he was unable to escape from the pressures of touring, making music, and non-stop fame.  The documentary, called Avicii: True Stories, shows repeated instances in which the DJ is being pushed into a grueling schedule by pushy managers and handlers.

That includes one particularly disturbing episode in which Bergling has just been released from major surgery.  Barely awake, Avicii is taking marching orders from a hard-driving manager.

Here’s the note that Avicii’s family issued last week:

Stockholm, 26 April 2018

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.

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.  We love you,

Your family.

    the torment was real … personally I can’t understand. I surely know with that money I wouldn’t be thinking about this, well… except the health… that sucked for him.. but the money would keep me going. When everything sucks you can spend money if you get me.

      The sheer number of rich people that commit suicide says otherwise.

      Money dosen’t make you happy. Happyness comes from within when you are feeling content and at peace with your everyday life aswell as the people you surround yourself with. Not what’s in your wallet. Money is fine and good, but most rich people are or have suffered from severe depression and suicide thoughts.

      Being rich isn’t all that great. ( I come from a wealthy family and have had 3 members who just couldn’t take the pressure and stress anymore, god rest their souls)

      Personally I think happiness comes from being content with your life, and feeling like you are in control and not everyone else around you and you dont HAVE to do something just because people EXPECT it from you.

    Details of suicide methods have been shown to prompt vulnerable individuals to imitate suicidal behaviour. In the Samaritans guide to reporting on suicide, they recommend “avoid[ing] any mention of the method in headlines as this inadvertently promotes and perpetuates common methods of suicide.”
