TMZ.com is reporting the cause of death for the Sweedish DJ Avicii. It was announced last week that Avicii had died and we now know the cause.
Avicii’s family released this statement last week alluding to the DJ taking his own life:
“He really struggled with thoughts about Meaning, Life, Happiness,” the statement read. “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.”
It’s been confirmed that Avicii did take his own life by cutting himself with a piece of a broken wine bottle.
