Avicii's brother flies to Oman as family 'search for answers' after shock death

The Swedish star's sibling David Bergling is said to have landed in Muscat less than 24 hours after the sad news was confirmed, according to TMZ.com.

Avicii, real name real name Tim Bergling, died in Muscat, Oman yesterday aged 28.

No more details about his death have been given, and TMZ now reports his hotelier brother has landed there.

He is said to have checked into a hotel close to the Muscat Hills resort, where Avicii had been staying a week before his passing.

David is believed to have arrived there hours after the DJ's shock death was announced.


The website states that David is hoping to find out what happened to his little brother.

While no more details about Avicii's passing have been given, he had previously been open about his health issues.

He had suffered acute pancreatitis, in part due to excessive drinking, and went on to have his gallbladder and appendix removed.

The star then shocked fans in 2016 when he announced he would be retiring from touring for the sake of his wellbeing.

However, he later returned to music and one of his most recent singles was a collaboration with Rita Ora called Lonely Together.

Rita was among the stars who paid tribute to the DJ after his death was confirmed yesterday.

Other stars to mourn his loss include his close friend Nile Rodgers, Calvin Harris and pop star Dua Lipa.

Since the announcement, pictures of the star posing with fans have emerged, with him looking happy and relaxed in the days leading up to his death.




In a statement confirming his death, his rep said: "It is with profound sorrow that we announce the loss of Tim Bergling, also known as Avicii.

"He was found dead in Muscat, Oman this Friday afternoon local time, April 20th.

"The family is devastated and we ask everyone to please respect their need for privacy in this difficult time.

"No further statements will be given."
