Tim Bergling, better known as Avicii was recently found dead in Muscat, Oman. His fans, fellow DJs and everyone else in the world are definitely heartbroken at his passing. He was one of the best DJs in the world, having been nominated twice for a Grammy Award. He had stopped performing live since 2016 after he was diagnosed with acute pancreatitis due to excessive alcohol use. Although there were no further details given about his sudden death, fans believe it was possibly health related. Now, it seems that the famous EDM DJ was unstoppable with his alcohol and drug abuse, according to an unidentified source who recently spoke to Radar Online.

The Swedish DJ was unstoppable

The unnamed insider told the publication that although Avicii was worshipped by everyone around the world, no one actually knew him. The source went on to claim that nobody was able to stop him from doing drugs.

He was always on the road when he earned his international breakthrough after he released "Levels" in 2011. His success ultimately led his health to become weak. He underwent multiple surgeries a few years ago, having his gallbladder and appendix removed.

“And he’s been going hard for years. No one ever told [Avicii] to get help because he wouldn’t listen to anyone,” the unnamed source added. “It’s so sad but everyone in the EDM community kind of knew this was coming especially after his recent surgeries.”

The source also said that Avicii wasn't able to handle his career well, especially as he started at a young age.

The fame, pressure, and stress were too much for him to handle. The famous Swedish DJ never had a chance to have a normal life of a "college-age person.”

According to the New York Times, "Wake Me Up" "lingered on the Hot 100 for more than a year." But the famous DJ was too overwhelmed with the lifestyle that he created, and nobody was there to help him.

Cause of death is unknown

A representative for Avicii recently released a statement to the public, saying that his family is devastated by his tragic death, but they asked for respect and privacy during this trying time.

Avicii, last year, posted on his website to explain his retirement from performing live. However, he said that creating music is still his life, and he's back at the studio making music.

He went on to say that "it is the beginning of something new" and hoped that everyone will enjoy it.

Avicii was no longer happy with his success

In August 2017, Avicii released his six-track EP entitled “Avici," then followed it with a full-length documentary called "True Stories." The documentary was about his retirement from performing live. He told Rolling Stone in an interview last year that he needed to figure out his life.

28-year-old Avicii said that his success didn't give him happiness anymore.
