The news of Avicii’s death at the age of 28 shocked the world when it broke last week. While it’s still officially unknown why he died, his family is now suggesting a possible cause…

According to Radar Online, Avicii’s family recently released a statement in regards to the DJ’s death. It read:

“Our beloved Tim was a seeker, a fragile artistic soul searching for answers to existential questions. An over-achieving perfectionist who traveled 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.”

For those who don’t know, Avicii retired from touring in 2016, citing stress and anxiety. He also struggled with drug and alcohol addictions, which could have been a contributing factor for the early retirement as well. The statement continued on to say:

“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.”
