The Sweden native was popular with the name Avicii through his career but, his real name is Tim Bergling. The word Avicii comes from Buddhist vocabulary, which implies “the lowest level of Buddhist hell.” He has a height of 5 feet 11 inches and body measurements 40-32-14, his chest, waist, and biceps measurements.

His Death Age- How did Avicii die?
The world lost a genuine talent on the 20th of April, 2018. Avicii was found dead in his hotel room in Oman. According to his family, the rapper had cut his wrist and bled to death. The internet and the music industry took a heavy blow with his death. I mean, he gave up his life at the age of 28. If we see the statistics, dozens of music industry diamonds lost their lives before hitting their thirties. So, what led to such a disaster for the Swedish rapper?
As it seems, the young man was fighting his alcohol addiction for a long time. Years of addiction had started to wreak havoc in his body. This led Avicii with acute pancreatitis in 2012 and, eventually, removing his appendix and gall bladder. Despite such degrading health conditions, the rapper continued his touring.
By 2017, the star had started talking about suicidal thoughts and depression here and there. We don’t know for sure, but it seems the industry’s lack of privacy and pressure was eating him from the inside.
