The world was devastated when Swedish DJ Tim Bergling -- more widely known as Avicii -- was found dead at 28 in April 2018.
Now fans are trying to cope with the fact that Bergling predicted his death in a documentary released just six months ago.
I recommend everyone, and I mean EVERYONE to watch @Avicii’s documentary, True Stories. It gives insight into how his life was, and will help solve unresolved questions some of you may have. I strongly advice to check it out.— ◢ ◤ ΛVICII Music Norway (@AVMusicNorway) April 20, 2018
In Avicii: True Stories, the beloved DJ reflected on his decision to retire from live performances in 2016, citing health issues and alcohol abuse.
"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 entertain the thought of doing another gig. I have been very open with everyone I work with, and everyone who knows me. Everyone knows that I've had anxiety and that I have tried," Bergling said.

While the cause of his death is still unclear, a preliminary autopsy revealed there is no suspicion of foul play.
The Avicii documentary is so chilling to watch now, this young stressed and frayed man trying to tell everyone around him that he’s falling apart from anxiety, panic and chronic pain. Nobody listens, just tells him how much money he’ll lose if he quits.— Mal Ek (@relay314) April 23, 2018
I just watched Avicii's documentary on Netflix and I just can't stop crying. He died unhappy, he deserved the best.— ◢ ◤ (@legendelrey_) April 23, 2018
