TMZ published a pretty graphic report that states exactly what happened on April 20th when Avicii was found dead in his hotel room in Oman. It turns out, as his parents alluded to in their statement a few days after his passing, he took his own life.
As if that wasn't heartbreaking enough, it's the method that he did it that's equal parts heart-shattering and shocking -- it sounds like he took a bottle of alcohol, smashed it, and used one of the broken shards to cut himself.
I honestly can't even imagine the pain that had to be going through his mind and heart and soul to not only fatally cut himself in general, but especially to that extreme. My heart goes out to his friends and family, and also Avicii, too. I can't imagine the pain and sorrow everyone is feeling right now.
PLEASE, if you're having thoughts of doing something similar, TALK TO SOMEONE. Because even if you think no one will care if you're gone, they will. And it'll break their heart intensely and only get worse with every passing day.
So PLEASE talk to someone if you're thinking of doing something to harm yourself. 1-800-273-8255.
