The family of the late Swedish DJ and producer Tim Bergling have released a statement about Tim Bergling’s cause of death.
According to the family, Bergling committed suicide by self-inflicted stab wounds on April 11, 2017.
The artist had been suffering from depression, anxiety, and heavy drinking, and it is not clear what caused his demise.
Regardless of the cause of his death, the news of his sudden death is tragic.
Sadly, Tim Bergling’s suicide was the result of a lengthy battle with his mental health and well-being.
He was a vocalist, but had struggled with his personal life, and eventually retired from touring.
It is unclear what led to the demise of Tim, but his parents created The Musicians for a Better World Foundation to promote suicide awareness and combat the stigma that surrounds it.
The songwriting legend will be missed by many, and the music world will never be the same without him.
As the cause of death, the family has tried to turn Tim Bergling’s passing into something meaningful.
In their statement, they avoided sugarcoating the news that Bergling committed suicide, stating that “his life had become unbearably difficult.”
The statement further suggested that Bergling struggled with existential questions and found peace through his music.
Although this does not prove that Tim was suicidal, the cause of death remains unknown.
