Avicii: Read His Ex-Girlfriend's Moving Tribute

by at .

The entertainment world is still reeling from the loss of Avicii.

As reported late last week, the beloved DJ was found dead on Friday at the very young age of 28.

In the days since, authorities have ruled out criminal suspicious as a cause of death, with local police in Oman (where Avicii was found) saying on record to CNN:

"Two postmortems were carried out ... and we can confirm that there is no criminal suspicion in the death."

So while we wait for further details to come in regarding what transpired with the musician, we can at least share more tributes to Avicii from those who knew him best.

Such as Emily Goldberg.

The ex-girlfriend of the DJ, Goldberg dated Avicii for two years and responded to his passing by sharing multiple photos of herself and the late star.

She also shared a moving message in his honor.

"'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," Emily wrote to open the caption to the picture below, adding:

"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. Now I can’t look at Bear without knowing I’ll never see his face again."

Avicii's parents, two sisters and one brother arrived over the weekend in the city of Muscat to repatriate his body this week, according to police in Oman, which is a  popular vacation destination on the Arabian Peninsula.

They are "completely devastated," authorities say.

So is Goldberg.

She concluded one of her posts by using lyrics from the DJ’s hit “Wake Me Up,” writing:

“I’m still collecting my thoughts and thank you for all your kind words and texts. Wake me up when it’s all over, because I don’t want it to be real. #ripavicii #avicii @avicii."

Via her Instagram page, Goldberg also shared what looks to be a screenshot of a text exchange between herself and Avicii (real name Tim Bergling) expressing their love for each other.

She captioned the post with a black heart emoji, and added the hashtags “#ripavicii #avicii.

Avicii's death was confirmed on Friday via the following statement:

It is with profound sorrow that we announce the loss of Tim Bergling, also known as Avicii.

He was found dead in Muscat, Oman, this Friday afternoon local time, April 20th.

The family is devastated and we ask everyone to please respect their need for privacy in this difficult time. No further statements will be given.

Fans then gathered in Stockholm on Saturday to pay tribute to the 28-year-old Swedish superstar.

Avicii thrilled club goers with his catchy hits, flashing lights and soulful collaborations.

At one point, it would be safe to say he one of the world's most successful DJs, along with being a major name in the electronic dance music genre known as EDM.

However, citing stress and anxiety, Avicii announced two years ago that he needed to take a break from touring.

"I was drinking way too much, partying in general way too much," he said at the time, adding of one side effect:

"Then I got a pancreatitis attack [at 21], which is very rare. So that forced me to do a 180 and stop drinking."

It's unclear right now whether this condition played a role in his death.

May Avicii rest in peace.
