Swedish DJ/musician Avicii died due to massive blood loss from a self-inflicted wound, a report claims.
The report shared by TMZ gives details of the DJ's death and quotes "sources privy to specific information about Avicii's death". According to the report, Avicii, whose real name was Tim Bergling, committed suicide by using a broken glass to cut himself.
In a second letter released by his parents last week, they alluded to this, saying that the 28-year-old "could not go on any longer and wanted peace". The letter, signed "The Family", described Avicii as a "fragile artistic soul and a sensitive guy not made for the machinery he ended up in". It says he "truly battled thoughts about the Meaning, Life, Happiness. Now, he could not go on any more. He wanted peace."
According to TMZ sources, Avicii broke a bottle and used the glass to inflict the fatal wound. One of the sources says it was a wine bottle. Two sources say the point of injury was Avicii's neck but another strongly denies that, saying it was his wrist. The cut caused massive bleeding, leading to his death.
The 28-year-old was found dead in the city of Muscat, Oman, on April 20.
In the days following his death, it was revealed that Avicii had been in a committed relationship with Czech-American model Tereza Ka?erová, and was a doting step-father to her young son at the time of his death.
Ms Ka?erová posted a heartbreaking open letter on her Instagram, in which she revealed that they had been planning on having children of their own, along with a series of photographs of them together.
Every time I think about something we won't finish I feel physical pain in my heart. We never finished the Harry Potter marathon - we had the last one left - you never witnessed me having a meltdown when Snape dies.
I never finished persuading you that our daughter's name MUST be Serafina. You never finished your tattoo sleeve in which the inner forearm would have a face coincidentally resembling mine.
I was always very set on keeping our relationship private because I wanted it to be OURS and ours only and wanted no part in that madness. But I thought, if I'm going to share this with the world, it will be when I'm pregnant with our child. Ohhh how that plan went awry.
A recent documentary on the singers life, titled, Avicii: True Stories, shed light on the extreme pressure he was under, performing 320 shows in a single year. In the documentary, Avicii, a self-confessed introvert, speaks frequently about using alcohol to be able to perform, drinking every day during his hectic tour, and to help him with his crippling anxiety and stress.
