After Avicii’s death, his family released a statement revealing that Avicii did not want to go on and had been struggling with mental health issues at the time of his death.

‘He really struggled with thoughts about Meaning, Life, Happiness. He could not go on any longer. He wanted to find peace,’ the statement said.

Despite a meteoric rise to success following the release of hit-single Le7els in 2011, Avicii announced in 2016 that he would not longer perform live, following years health problems caused by stress and alcohol abuse, as well as severe anxiety.

Emily continued to pay tribute to the star after his death after she posted a series of memories with him in April 2021, to mark two years since his passing. 

She wrote: ‘He was a best friend and a soul mate’. 

The influencer also had her own cameo page, which read: ‘I’ll pretty much do anything. Portion of the proceeds will be going to The Tim Bergling Foundation’.

The documentary 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 as a crutch to be able to perform, drinking every day during his hectic tour, and to help him with his crippling anxiety and stress.

At the age of 21 he was diagnosed with acute pancreatitis – a potentially life-threatening inflammation of the pancreas – due in part to excessive drinking.

In 2014, he was again hospitalised and forced to have his gallbladder and appendix removed.

Avicii made a fortune during his short career, cashing in $28million in 2014 alone, earning $250,000 a night when playing out sold-out shows, according to GQ.

Avicii himself was less bothered about his millions, saying in 2013 that he ‘noticed straight away when I started making money, that I don’t need that much money’.

In 2012 he donated the entire income of his U.S. tour – more than one million dollars – to hunger relief charity Feeding America, and in 2013 he gave one million euros to Swedish aid organisation Radiohjälpen.

The star grew up in affluent Ostermalm in the Swedish capital Stockholm, and began producing music in high school.

He made a name for himself on the EDM (Electronic Dance Music) scene, before his breakthrough hit Le7els in 2011.

He would later become known for hits like Wake Me Up!, You Make Me, and recently Lonely Together, a collaboration with Rita Ora.

He won two MTV Music Awards, one Billboard Music Award and earned two Grammy nominations.

Just three days before his death, in his final post on Twitter, Bergling thanked the Billboard Music Award’s jury for his nomination int the Top Dance/Electronic Album category for his EP Avīci (01).

In the days following his death, it was revealed that Avicii had been in a committed relationship with Czech-American model Tereza Kačerová, and was a doting step-father to her young son at the time of his death.
