Avicii was struggling with major issues at the time of his death ... which his family is now strongly insinuating was a suicide.
The superstar DJ, whose real name was Tim Bergling, was found dead last week in Oman, and while there's been no cause of death released ... his family just released a statement referring to his struggles to find meaning in his life once he finished touring.
Here's the full statement:
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.
Obviously, the passage ... "He could not go on any longer. He wanted to find peace" ... seems like a reference to Avicii taking his own life. Authorities have ruled out foul play in the 28-year-old's death.
Meanwhile, Avicii was commemorated in his native Sweden where a choir performed "Wake Me Up!"
Kanye West is laser-focused on the release of 5 new albums, and based on a firsthand account, the people claiming he's erratic or in the middle of a meltdown are off base.
Kanye invited Harvey Levin to his offices after taking issue with a TMZ source who told us 'Ye had been acting erratically, and Harvey took him up on the offer, spending 2 hours with Yeezy and various music executives who were planning the release of the albums.
The execs at times struggled to keep up with Kanye, who was spewing ideas for a multi-platform release, beginning May 25 with the release of Pusha T's album, followed by Kanye's solo album, Kids See Ghost, Nas and Teyana Taylor. Each album has 7 tracks, and Kanye made all the beats.
Macy Gray tried to say goodbye to Kanye West, and she choked -- but rather than walk away and stumble ... she's reaching out to him with her own customized take on his MAGA ball cap.
The singer-songwriter posted a photo late Wednesday of herself rocking a red "Make Kanye Great Again" hat -- a clear response to Kanye's polarizing headwear choice Wednesday while hanging with some music execs.
Kanye's bold declaration of love for the Prez -- as he plotted out the release plans for his 2 new albums -- ignited the Internet and prompted some of his celeb pals, like Snoop Dogg, Janelle Monae and John Legend, to post thinly-veiled criticisms.
