Avicii Loved Ones Feared He Would Kill Himself, Rushed to Prevent Suicide

According to a recent report, Avicii talked to his loved ones just hours before he took his own life two weeks ago.

Based on this conversation and the DJ’s behavior/mindset/attitude during it, Avicii’s feared the worst.

They feared that Avicii would take his own life.

“The family was aware that Tim felt bad. It went up and down, but when he was in Oman, it became worse,” a source close to the family told the Swedish website Stoppa Pressarna.

This insider added:

“When they talked to Tim on the phone they became worried. The family realized that it was really bad and that one had to act.”

This article goes on to say that one family member immediately hopped on on a flight to the Middle East, but it was too late:

When the family member (believed to be Avicii’s brother) arrived in the city of Muscat, Avicii had already committed suicide.

As previously detailed, the beloved musician killed himself at the young age of 28, following years of admitted substance abuse and anxiety.

In 2016, Avicii took a hiatus from touring due to health issues (he was previously diagnosed with pancreatitis), both mental and physical.

He confessed to partying too much and feeling ongoing pressure to be a global success.

Earlier this week, TMZ quoted an insider who said the Swedish DJ used a shard of glass to fatally wound himself.

It’s unclear whether he cut himself on the wrist or on the neck, but it’s become evident that Avicii struggled tremendously with his place in the world.

“Our beloved Tim was a seeker, a fragile artistic soul searching for answers to existential questions,” read a recent family statement, shedding some light on what transpired with their relative.

This statement continued:

“When he stopped touring, he wanted to find a balance in life to be happy and be able to do what he loved most – music.

“He really struggled with thoughts about Meaning, Life, Happiness. He could not go on any longer. He wanted to find peace.”

Based on those final two sentences, it was assumed by most fans that Avicii did, indeed, kill himself.

And now that has been confirmed.

But this was the first we heard of the phone call between the late DJ and his family members.

It’s heartbreaking, isn’t it?

The hitmaker bled to death while on vacation on the aforementioned Arabian peninsula on Friday, April 20.

“It’s terrible for the family, an unusual sense of powerlessness and frustration that Tim left them in such young years,” the source told the website cited above, concluding:

“It’s a big tragedy. He was really a great guy.”

This really does seem to be the case.

In the wake of this suicide, those in entertainment took to social media to express their thoughts and their condolences.

You can read those tributes HERE.

We continue to send our own best wishes and to send our own prayers to everyone who knew Avicii best.

We simply loved his music. We can’t imagine what this must be like for those close to the musician.

May he rest in peace.


Kanye West Compares Himself and Donald Trump to Dragons, Says He’s “Nice” at Ping Pong

Let’s be frank up front:

Kanye West may be in serious trouble.

The rapper is Tweeting non-stop, making absolutely no sense while doing so and, based on a recent report, may be coming off an Opiods addiction.

We really do think West may be suffering another mental breakdown and could be in need of some professional assistance.

We hope he gets it.

This caveat in place, let’s also be honest:

We’re a celebrity gossip website. We’re obligated to joke around about a star when he or she relays the sort of bat$ hit crazy messages that Kanye has been posting of late.

We thought it was random enough when the musician first returned to Twitter and rambled on about Lamar Odom and his alleged neck tattoos, as covered below:

But now?!?

West has since Tweeted his love and affection for Donald Trump, while more recently cutting ties with long-time friend and manager Scotter Braun.

How come?

“I no longer have a manager. I can’t be managed. I’m nobody’s client,” West Tweeted.

This stance does sort of go along with a report that claims Kanye is out of control and that not even wife Kim Kardashian can calm him down these days.

And this report came out before Kanye delved deeper into his self-proclaimed love of the current President.

“You don’t have to agree with trump but the mob can’t make me not love him. We are both dragon energy,” Kanye wrote on Thursday, elaborating as only he can:

“He is my brother. I love everyone. I don’t agree with everything anyone does. That’s what makes us individuals. And we have the right to independent thought.”


“If your friend jumps off the bridge you don’t have to do the same. Ye being Ye is a fight for you to be you.

“For people In my life the idea of Trump is pretty much a 50 50 split but I don’t tell a Hillary supporter not to support Hillary I love Hillary too.”

From here, Kanye revealed that Kardashian actually pressed him to walk back his remarks about The Donald a little bit:

“my wife just called me and she wanted me to make this clear to everyone. I don’t agree with everything Trump does. I don’t agree 100% with anyone but myself.”


West previously announced that he will release two new albums in June.

So it’s very possible this social media meltdown is not a meltdown, but rather his own kind of promotion for those albums.

It’s possible, we emphasize.

But the rapper did suffer an actual breakdown toward the end of 2016 and, well… he’s now writing stuff such as this:

I’m nice at ping pong.

fear takes strategy Unlearn linear thinking Hit you with these zig zag thoughts.

And also I’m all the way out the sunken place. And I’m not scared anymore. I’m not scared of the media. I’m not scared of the past and I’m optimistic about the future. This tweet is in love not fear.


How can anyone know what to think when West is sending gibberish such as this?

The guy does have the entire Internet talking about him once again, so let’s give him some credit.

But that isn’t always a good thing, no matter what Kanye’s apparent hero, Donald Trump, might say.

Do YOU think West has sincerely lost it? Or is this all a part of a much larger marketing strategy?
