Details are now being revealed about the sudden death of Avicii. The beloved DJ and producer, whose real name was Tim Bergling, took his own life by using a shard of glass from a broken wine bottle, reports TMZ. Avicii, who passed at age 28, was found dead in Muscat, Oman. Police initially reported that there was “no criminal suspicion” and a statement released by Avicii’s family alluded to suicide. “He could not go on any longer.
