Swedish DJ Avicii Has Died, Aged 28
DJ and producer Tim Bergling, a.k.a Avicii, has died at age 28.
He was found dead in Oman, according to a statement given by his representatives.
“It is with profound sorrow that we announce the loss of Tim Bergling, also known as Avicii,” the statement reads. “He was found dead in Muscat, Oman this Friday afternoon local time, April 20th. The family is devastated and we ask everyone to please respect their need for privacy in this difficult time. No further statements will be given.”
While the cause of death is unknown, Avicii had dealt with his fair share of health problems including acute pancreatitis, which caused him to have his gallbladder and appendix removed in 2014. He retired from playing live shows in 2016, which Buzzfeed reports is due to health problems.
