Heartbroken and clearly devastated, Emily used Instagram to post a handful of photos of them, with a very touching caption. Even if they were not together anymore, she shared a fragment of a song that Avicii wrote for her:
“Come on babe, don’t give up on us. Choose me, and I’ll show you love. Those are lyrics from a song Tim wrote for me. I wish I could have lived up to them. For the two years we were together, he was my closest confidante, and my best friend. (…) Wake me up when it’s all over, because I don’t want it to be real #ripavicii #avicii @avicii.”
Avicii died at 28, after living a short but intense career as a DJ and producer. He faced some health issues in the past, such as anxiety episodes and acute pancreatitis due to excessive drinking. After having his appendix and his gallbladder removed, he retired from performing live in 2016 to focus on getting better.
Our thoughts are with his family, friends, and fans. He will be dearly missed.
