Private funeral held for Avicii in Sweden

68

The funeral of Swedish DJ Avicii took place in a private ceremony in Stockholm last week, his publicist has confirmed, BBC reports.

The star, whose real name was Tim Bergling, was found dead in a hotel in Muscat, Oman, in April. He was 28.

"His funeral was held last Friday, attended by his closest family and friends," Swedish publicist Ebba Lindqvist said.

No cause of death was released but police ruled out "criminal suspicions".

Bergling's family later appeared to suggest he took his own life, saying in a statement he "could not go on any longer".

In a statement, they spoke about how Tim "struggled with thoughts on meaning, life, happiness".
