Six days after the death of the popular Swedish DJ Avicii, his family has released a statement explaining that the star's life in the fast lane took a taxing toll.
"Our beloved Tim was a seeker, a fragile artistic soul searching for answers to existential questions," the statement read, referring to Avicii's real name Tim Bergling. "An over-achieving perfectionist who traveled and worked hard at a pace that led to extreme stress."
The statement continued to explain that the 28-year-old's grueling tour schedule and the constant attention and pressure from fans had taken a serious toll on his physical and mental health.
"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," they wrote. "He could not go on any longer. He wanted to find peace."
Avicii retired from touring in 2016 after years of health problems, including acute pancreatitis and the removal of his appendix and gallbladder.
In an open letter to fans announcing his decision to quit life on the road, the "Wake Me Up" DJ wrote he had "too little left for the life of a real person behind the artist."
"Tim was not made for the business machine he found himself in; he was a sensitive guy who loved his fans but shunned the spotlight," his family's statement continued. "Tim, you will forever be loved and sadly missed. The person you were and your music will keep your memory alive."
Avicii was found dead in a resort hotel room April 20 in Oman, where he'd been staying with friends.

Local authorities have ruled out foul play in his death.
