Their latest message seems to allude to the popular DJ (born Tim Bergling) committing suicide, writing about about how “he could not go on any longer.”
Translated from Swedish, Variety reported it read:
Stockholm, 26 April 2018
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 ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ 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. We love you,
The cause of death has not officially been revealed. We’ll continue to keep you updated!
And of course, our thoughts continue to be with the Bergling family.
