Last week, the world was heartbroken over the death of Swedish DJ and producer Avicii - born Tom Bergling - in Muscat, Oman. 

Details about his death were not revealed immediately. However, on Thursday, his family released a statement implying his death was a suicide.

"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," the statement read.

"He really struggled with thoughts about Meaning, Life, Happiness. He could not go on any longer."

Avicii was found dead on April 20, at the age of 28. 

"Our beloved Tim was a seeker, a fragile artistic soul searching for answers to existential questions," his family said, according to Rolling Stone. 

"An over-achieving perfectionist who traveled and worked hard at a pace that led to extreme stress."

Bergling's family explained his uncertainty in his profession, and noted that he was not meant for such an industry. 

"Tim was not made for the business machine he found himself in," his family said.

"He was a sensitive guy who loved his fans but shunned the spotlight. Tim, you will forever be loved and sadly missed. The person you were and your music will keep your memory alive."

Arabs on Twitter were completely heartbroken over the death of the 28-year-old.

"You can have everything in the world and still not be happy"

"It's so sad when someone so young dies"

"It actually breaks my heart"

In 2016, in a detailed letter to his fans, the renowned artist announced his retirement from touring but continued to record music in the studio.

"The next stage will be all about my love of making music to you guys. It is the beginning of something new," he said at the time.

Avicii had suffered from ongoing health problems, including acute pancreatitis, which caused him to have his gallbladder and appendix removed in 2014, according to AP.

The successful international DJ was nominated for two Grammy Awards, two MTV Europe Music Awards, and one Billboard Music Award.

His hit song "Wake Me Up" was a multi-platinum success and the artist was part of the wave of DJ's that led the scene over the past few years, such as David Guetta, Calvin Harris, and Swedish House Mafia.

May his soul rest in peace.
