      Avicii 'died after cutting himself using broken wine bottle and bleeding to death' - while his family alluded to suicide in open letter saying 'he wanted peace' Avicii took his own life and died due to massive blood loss, TMZ claims His family penned a letter saying the DJ 'couldn't go on and wanted peace'  Tim 'Avicii' Bergling was found dead in Muscat, Oman, aged 28, on April 20 A family member rushed to Oman after a worrying phone conversation with the DJ but arrived two hours after the troubled star had taken his life Swedish DJ retired from touring in 2016 after mental and physical health issues  
      Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5677489/Avicii-died-cutting-bleeding-death-report-say.html#ixzz5EIJ2TBmi  Troubled Swedish DJ Avicii died due to massive blood loss after cutting himself with glass from a broken wine bottle, a report claims.
      The report with details of his death comes from TMZ, quoting 'sources privy to specific information about Avicii's death'.
      Avicii, whose real name was Tim Bergling, was found dead in the city of Muscat, Oman, on April 20.
      Last week, his family penned an open letter saying the 28-year-old  'could not go on any longer and wanted peace'.
      The letter, signed 'The Family', described Avicii as a 'fragile artistic soul and a sensitive guy not made for the machinery he ended up in'.
      It says he 'truly battled thoughts about the Meaning, Life, Happiness. Now, he could not go on any more. He wanted peace.' 
      Speaking to MailOnline at the time of the letter's publication, a spokeswoman for the artist declined to confirm whether he had taken his own life. 
      Swedish entertainment news website Stoppa Pressarna reported that hours before the DJ's death he spoke to a member of his family who was so worried by the phone call that he immediately traveled to Oman, but arrived two hours too late.  
      ‘The family was aware that Tim was mentally unwell. It went up and down, but when he was in Oman it got worse,’ a source close to the family said 
      ‘When they spoke to Tim on the phone, they got worried., The family understood that it was bad and that they had to act.
      ‘The plane landed two hours after Tim had passed away’.
      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.
      Ms Kačerová posted a heartbreaking open letter on her Instagram, in which she revealed that the pair had been planning on having children of their own, along with a series of photographs of them together. 
      She writes: 'Every time I think about something we won't finish I feel physical pain in my heart.
      'We never finished the Harry Potter marathon - we had the last one left - you never witnessed me having a meltdown when Snape dies.
      'I never finished persuading you that our daughter's name MUST be Serafina.
      'You never finished your tattoo sleeve in which the inner forearm would have a face coincidentally resembling mine.'
      She continues: 'I was always very set on keeping our relationship private because I wanted it to be OURS and ours only and wanted no part in that madness. 
      'But I thought, if I'm going to share this with the world, it will be when I'm pregnant with our child. Ohhh how that plan went awry.' 
      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. 
      A recent 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, Bergling 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.
      Bergling 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).
      He died on April 20 in Muscat, Oman, where he is reported to have been holidaying with friends.
      An official cause of death has not been made public.

      AVICII'S FAMILY'S OPEN LETTER
      Read the family's open letter, published on Thursday, in full;
      'Our beloved Tim was a seeker, a fragile artistic soul who always carried great existential questions.
      'An overperforming perfectionist who travelled and worked hard at a tempo which led to extremely difficult stress.
      'When he stopped touring, he wanted to find a balance in life to feel good and be able to do what he loved the most - music.'
      'He truly battled thoughts about the Meaning, Life, Happiness. 
      'Now, he could not go on any more. He wanted peace.
      'Tim was not made for the machinery he ended up in, he was a  sensitive guy who loved his fans, but shunned the spotlight,' the statement read.
      'Tim, you will forever be loved and missed. Who you were and your music will carry on the memory of you. 
      'We love you, the family'.

      NEW YORK, NY (April 6, 2018) — Today, King Arthur releases his new single and official
      debut for Casablanca Records, “Laidback.” Get it HERE.
      “Laidback is the perfect record to begin expanding my Kingdom.” King Arthur talks about his
      new song, “It’s a fresh take on a classic sound, and the beginning of new sonic era for me, that I
      couldn’t be more excited about.  I’m particularly thrilled to have the cavalry at Casablanca
      Records leading the charge”   The acclaimed artist and producer once again elevates his royal and regal repertoire. Hinging
      on off-kilter sampling, propulsive percussion, and an irresistible refrain, the track welcomes
      listeners into the center of his court. There’s nothing on the dance floor quite like it!
      “Laidback” also heralds yet another evolution for King Arthur. Harking back to the seminal
      classics from Fatboy Slim and Moby that shaped his formative years, he updates a timeless
      sound for today’s generation on his forthcoming new EP—coming very soon.
      King Arthur’s quiet grind laid the foundation for a royal kingdom that’s unlike anything else in
      electronic dance music. Released on Don Diablo’s Hexagon, the 2016 full-length debut, Believe
      In The Kingdom, generated a staggering 20 million-plus streams on Spotify as his total cumulative streams surpassed 47 million. The Chainsmokers, Axwell & Ingrosso, Martin Garrix,
      and countless other heavy hitters have tapped the artist, producer, DJ, and remixer for high-
      profile remixes, while Kaskade, David Guetta, Tiësto, Afrojack and more regularly spin his music
      live. He teamed up with Bastille on a remix of “World Gone Mad” for the Official Soundtrack
      Album to NETFLIX’s hit Bright. He made history by performing at the first-ever dance music
      event in Pakistan and touched down everywhere from Tomorrowland Mainstage to the Storm
      Festival.   ABOUT CASABLANCA RECORDS
