This Is How Avicii Reportedly Killed Himself
Although Avicii’s family wanted him to find peace, it doesn’t look like the superstar DJ chose a pretty violent way to allegedly end his life.
Avicii, whose real name is Tim Bergling, was found dead in his hotel room in the Omani capital of Muscat two weeks ago. (RELATED: AVICII’S FAMILY ISSUES STATEMENT AFTER HIS SHOCKING SUDDEN DEATH)
“He really struggled with thoughts about Meaning, Life, Happiness,” his family said in a joint statement released last week. “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.”
His family’s vague statement led to speculation about Avicii’s cause of death. Many guessed that his family was alluding to a potential suicide. But Omani medical examiners revealed very little about Avicii’s cause of death – until now.
TMZ is reporting that Avicii reportedly committed suicide by cutting himself up with broken glass.
“Our sources say the method of death was a shard of glass that caused massive bleeding,” TMZ reports. “Two sources tell us Avicii broke a bottle and used the glass to inflict the fatal wound. One of the sources says it was a wine bottle.”
A source claims Avicii was found with deep gashes on his neck, however another disputes the claim and says he the DJ had fatal cuts on his wrist and arms instead. Details are still sketchy and we may never get the full story, as his family has requested privacy during their time of mourning.
