AVICII, WHO COMMITTED SUICIDE in APRIL THIS YEAR, HAS LEFT HIS ENTIRE FORTUNE TO HIS PARENTS.
Avicii, who's real name was Tim Bergling, had not written a will, and being alone without a partner or children automatically left his fortune to his parents. He was one of the most known DJ's, was Swedish born and had millions of fans. He committed suicide in April this year and was buried a few months later in June. He was just 28-years-old. His parents said that “He really struggled with thoughts about Meaning, Life, Happiness. He could not go on any longer. He wanted to find peace.”
The Swedish Tax Agency released some legal forms to the public that his parents, Klas Bergling and Anki Lidén are inheriting their son's wealth of 213 million kronor (or £20 Million). Under a Swedish law, the DJ's money will be automatically gifted to his parents.
Avicii was said to have multiple Debts which include, 96.5 million kronor (£8.42 M) in the US and 841,330 kronor (£73,430) in Canada. All these were paid off before his parents inherited his fortune and estate.
He was well known for his charity work and had donated over $1 million to the Hunger charity 'Feeding America'. In 2013, he also donated one million Euros to the Swedish aid charity 'Radiohjalpen'. After the donation he admitted "I discovered when I started making money that I didn't really need it" . The DJ also stated "When you have such an excess of money you don't need, the most sensible, most human and completely obvious thing is to give to people in need,".
After performing 320 shows in one year, Avicii was seen telling some friends, "I have said, like, I'm going to die. I have said it so many times. And so I don't want to hear that I should even entertain the thought of doing another gig." Right, Klas Bergling and Anki Lidén, Avicii's Parents
